Here is what the NOLES have done the last 10 years and what Florida has done the last 10 years....like I said it doesn't compare. Yes, Florida has had 3 good years, two if you don't want to count the loss to Michigan last year in the Bowl game. But it does not compare by any means. And while I'm at it, you might want to check to see how many NFL players FSU produces and compare that to how many UF produces (I did the research for you).

FLORIDA

2000 Sugar Bowl Miami 37 Florida 20
2001 Orange Bowl Florida 56 Maryland 23
2002 Outback Bowl Michigan 38 Florida 30
2003 Outback Bowl Iowa 37 Florida 17
2004 Peach Bowl Miami 27 Florida 10
2005 Outback Bowl Florida 31 Iowa 24
2006 BCS National Championship Game Florida 41 Ohio State 14
2007 Capital One Bowl Michigan 41 Florida 35
2008 BCS National Championship Game Florida Oklahoma

FSU

January 4, 2000 Sugar Bowl BCS National Championship Game W Virginia Tech 46 29
January 3, 2001 Orange Bowl BCS National Championship Game L Oklahoma 2 13
January 1, 2002 Gator Bowl W Virginia Tech 30 17
January 1, 2003 Sugar Bowl L Georgia 13 26
January 1, 2004 Orange Bowl L Miami 14 16
January 1, 2005 Gator Bowl W West Virginia 30 18
January 3, 2006 Orange Bowl L (3 OT) Penn State 23 26
December 27, 2006 Emerald Bowl W UCLA 44 27
December 31, 2007 Music City Bowl L Kentucky 28 35
December 27, 2008 Champs Sports Bowl W Wisconsin 42 13

Players in the NFL

Most Current NFL Players by College
Miami (FL) 45
Florida State 43
Ohio State 41
Georgia 36
Tennessee 36
- Over half of FSU’s NFL players (22) have entered the league in the last three seasons.
- Florida is tied for seventh on the list above, with 34 NFL players.

The numbers speak for themselves.

That does not compare to the 104 NCAA violations UF was charged with when I was running the ship. I hear Herbman Meyer is out to break my record though. I remember ole Chris Rainey bragging about the cash he was receiving while in high school from Gator Boosters.

Jemele Hill.
She columnist for ESPN and is at times a female version of Stephen A. Smith.
I never understood why she has to make every sports story a social issue.
i agree with you. I never did enjoy her columns, but it must irk Bianchi that one of his cohorts made it to the show and not him.

That would be 1 violation for 61 athletes who got the answers to an online test. Fine, kick them them out of school with the rest of the non athletes, but this is far from recruiting violations

You're right. It's far worse as the N.C.A.A. will soon show when it renders sanctions.
