Your arrogance is a disservice to a fine University and its responsible fans.

What Florida has accomplished is amazing. However, I am 57 years old. I have seen Ohio State successful in sports in the 1950's. 1960's, 1970's, 1980's, 1990's and 2000's. Prior to the 1990's Florida wasn't good in anything. Had I been an alum of that school -- I graduated from OSU in 1972 -- I would have hated waiting until the twilight of my life to have some good teams. Let's see if Florida can sustain this success for over a half century like OSU has. Florida has had a wonderful 15 year tradition.

What you people need to realize is that the buckeyes do not refer to themselves as THE Ohio State University because they are cocky...THE Ohio State University is the official title of the school...do some research before writing something like that

Its shocking to me that someone is surprised a newspaper in the STATE OF FLORIDA would write a pro-Gator story, just like I am sure your Columbus newpapers are writing pro-Buckeye stories. Let it be that.

By all means, keep reading the stories that are written by/for Gators just like I love reading newspapers articles and Buckeye blog sites. Its fun to see what the other side is thinking, it makes the rivalries that much more fun.

Check back tomorrow morning- there will be a story about how the Gators win a National Championship....again.
And, the students at Florida won't overturn and burn cars ... or, try to torch the university. LOL!

The Program is not just about the scoreboard. THE Ohio State University emphasizes academics along with sports. Should we look at graduation percentages? Also, the athletic programs teach discipline instead of interviewing like a bunch of thugs after the game. Show some class Gators.

Sports are sports, not diversions. Yes, Florida has 2 national championships but Hang on Sloopy, next year is right around the corner.

Oh you don't want to go to graduation percentages! UF has one of the highest graduation rates for it's athletic program in the country while on the other hand Ohio State has an embarrassingly low graduation rate! Look it up before you post! And I saw the OS interviews! The emotion was pretty much emotionless! Kinda like interviewing a wet dish rag! And while you're at it explain all those gang tatoos on the OS team! Especially Butler! Were his prison issue?

Nick, Buckeye fans were gloating BEFORE the BCS championship game. Now you criticize a little gloating after victory?

Guys, I'm still pissed off because the two best teams didn't play each other for the NC! SlowHio St. and Missagain deserved it.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!

Who cares about the Gators having a highter graduation rate than OSU. Yes education is very important. I mean even if a OSU grad wants to work in a burger joint and maybe the Gator as well...its still a job. Just as long I don't get ne extra toppings with my burger from the Gator employee...We're good to go.
