This article is a down right lie! You make it sound like BB adjusted the schedule to suit the suspensions. The schedule hasn't even been made yet....how can he readjust it if he hasn't made it yet?

You Nole apologist are unbelieveable. The article has quotes from Bowden himself you moron. If your team wasnt a bunch of cheaters then this wouldnt be a problem. What a coward Bowden is. He should take his medicine for his cheating arse team.

It is not a lie. First the F$U SCUMBAGS lightly slap themselves on the wrists with a meaningless self-imposed penalty then alter the schedule to guarantee a couple of wins w/o their suspended players. St. Bobby is CHIKKEN$CHITT, plain and simple. It'll be 5 in a row for UF over Half A$$ U this year.

Unbelieveable......2 IAA teams who ended up at the bottom of their conference!

Have you no shame Coach Bowden?

It is common to open with a cream puff ...but this is ridiculous

Can we just get it over with and join the SEC now!? We acheived their level of academic integrity last year and now, at long last, we finally have their out of conference schedule!

I guess Edgewater and Boone were not available on those two Saturdays.
What a bunch of losers up there in Tallahassee! I hope one of those teams beats them.

Of course people like you don't get it. We are in the toughest conference in the country. We play real teams every week unlike the ACC. You guys get a break nearly every week unlike the SEC. And don't even respond. The last two NC's from the SEC. Get over it.

I guessed you missed the quotes from Saint Bobby admitting that they have adjusted the schedule because of the suspensions.

Gutless, Bobby.

I thought college schedules were prepared years in advance? Could they have known this was coming? Or am I wrong and they prepare the schedules yearly. I think the H/S in Miami that won the national championship has an open date. They would be a good match as they have sent some of their finer students to UM on similiar academic scholaship.

The schedules ARE prepared years in advance.

For all of you "high and mighty" Gators. Let me remind you....while FSU was opening with Miami and Clemson, the mighty Gates were playing Western Kentucky, Troy, and Florida Atlantic....all quite the powerhouses !!! The year befor ethey were playing...oh yeah...Western Carolina University. That's right...the same tean you are bashing FSU for playing. And what powerhouse do you pick up this year...oh yeah...the Citadel !!! One of the teams that Western Carolina University beat !!!

I think you are missing the point here. Yes, the schedule was prepared years in advance. However, Bobby has now CHANGED the schedule because of suspensions, moving his own list of patsies to the beginning of the year to avoid having to play a team that could possibly beat him.
Play warmups, play weak OOC teams, fine. But now moving the schedule around to accommodate suspensions? Gutless.

Is this based in fact, that the motive for an easy opening was solely because of the academic misfortunes - or is this another example of yellow journalism and an alum of another educational institution attempting to incite a more negative view of the Florida State University?

Unbiased reporting might make observations to other D-1 in state institutions and their opening frames - just in fairness

I'll agree, UF's first 2 opponents are usually cupcakes. However, they don't play in the ACC, All Cupcake Conference, like FSU. The ACC has not won a BCS bowl game over the past few years. The SEC's performance in BCS bowl games over the past few seasons speaks very well for the conference.

Sure, teams do add some cupcakes to their diet, and the overall strength of schedule is really all that matters - but that being said, I'm not aware of an elite D-I school playing two I-AA, much less in back to back games.

Proof that we did not adjust our schedule is that we are playing the best team in the ACC in game three. You Gates have nothing to compare to what it is like to play Wake year after year after year.

Great example of leading young men. Hey, we got cheating and instead of taking it on the chin for doing wrong were going to play a soft schedule so it won't hurt us. Ladies and Gentlemen meet the real Harry Houdini!!! The only guy I know that can step in [email protected] and come out smelling like a rose and everyone says what a good man he is!

Well I will have to say that the Noles are finally wising up and copying what UF has done for years by starting out playing weak teams for the first couple of games so they can work their kinks out. Very smart move on their part regardless of the movtive. What is amazing is all of this garbage UF fans are posting about this....talk about the pot calling the kettle black! LOL

Really? Here is an example. U of felons first 2 games last year. Western Kentucky and Troy. But maybe you don't consider UF "an elite d-1 school".

You do realize that both Troy and Western Kentucky are both 1-A teams, don't you?
