    And we are also #7 in the "Way Too Early 2019 rankings"

    The 2019 Way-Too-Early Top 25

    Outlook: The Gators improved dramatically in Year 1 under Dan Mullen, which was capped off by a 41-15 rout of Michigan in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Florida's six-victory improvement from 2017 was among the best in the FBS, and Mullen's 10 victories were one more than what Meyer and Steve Spurrier won in their first seasons at Florida.

    Even more impressive, Mullen did it while squeezing everything possible out of quarterback Feleipe Franks, who ranked 10th in the SEC in passing. How much will a second season under Mullen help him?

    The Gators are going to have to rebuild their offensive line, with four starters departing. Taylor, a potential first-round pick, has already announced he's leaving.

    Polite, who was third in the SEC with 11 sacks, and Gardner-Johnson have already announced they're turning pro. But defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will have the bulk of his unit back, after the Gators ranked sixth in the SEC in scoring defense and third against the pass in 2018.

    Florida opens the 2019 season against Miami in Orlando, Florida, and will leave the Sunshine State only four times for road games at Kentucky, LSU, South Carolina and Missouri.

                That bothered me too, but we are also ahead of Kentucky.

                  And the countdown begins until ucf fans start whining that they’re not in the top 10.

                    Because MSU and Mizzou lost their bowls and fell out of the rankings, we finished 1-2 against teams ranked at the end of the season.

                    Tied at 7 with the dwags, you don’t see ties often. Dwags must be pissed, I can’t wait to mess with one at work today.

                        2-2. We beat LSU & Michigan, lost to UGA & KY.

                        Bowls are so unevenly approached by teams and key players that I think the ranking at the end of the regular season is more reflective of that body of work.

                        By that measure we were 3-3.

                        That’s also better than the “when we played them” stat since the season was incomplete.

                        Our ranking seems about right to me. We are in the bucket of teams 6-17 that can play with anyone and win big games and lose to anyone if not playing well or without key players. Given our strong finish, we belong at the top of that bucket.

                        Top 10 seemed very unlikely to me at the start of the season. What a good start to the Mullen era.

                        But we’re 0-0 now and in the weight room laying the foundation for 2019. I hope they are hungry!

                          I was hoping 7 was our recruiting ranking.

                                The best part though is that we will be shown in front of them too, since it’s alphabetical order when listing the tying teams

                                      That was my first thought. You know they're pissed about the way their season fell apart at the end, and finishing in a tie with a rapidly rising Gator team must really be hard to swallow. Other than Clemson, and maybe one or two others, few can lay claim to a steeper climb in fortune this year than the Gators. There has been an electrifying "sea change" at UF with the job turned in by DM, his staff and the kids who made this happen on the field. The fun and excitement has returned to Florida FB, and with the way UGA and the Bammers shytt the bed to end the season, I think the sky may truly be the limit for this program. And I do mean in the very near future. Go Gators!

                                        “Danny, congrats on a great season. Tough loss against the corndogs, maybe next time. Regarding our offer of a 2 for 1, I noticed that your football program is no longer top 10. So we’re going to have to modify our terms. How does a game in Gainesville, say maybe in 2028 sound to you guys? I think we can fit you in that year as our end of season cupcake while we get ready for Free Shoes U. Take care.”

                                              Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
