      We are trending up. Recruiting looking better than last year. Definitely have turned the corner from those last two bozos.

      Win the East next year, keep moving up, get a few studs and we’ll be playing for all the marbles soon

        11-2, #6, Not bad. I would have taken that at the beginning of the season.

        Now on to winning the East.

          Was this the first season since our last natty that we finished a season ranked ahead of Bama?

            Tennessee didn't make the top 25 even with bowl win.

                It's a good year when you're ranked ahead of Oky and Bama.

                  SEC set a record for bowl wins, but only four teams in top 25?

                    When there is 32 bowl games outside the playoff, they don't all mean what they used to. half the NCAA D1 teams are basically in a bowl game, and most are crap now a days. It's a good accomplishment, but its also been watered down because of the greed of sponsors and television to create so many games.

                      The Oregon love this year was disturbing. Hell Wiscy would have beat them badly had they not turned it over four times

                      It's all due to their qb, and his high profile... doubt it is the same next year.

                          Thought the same thing.

                          We lost to LSU and Jawja
                          They lost to ASU and Auburn
                          We beat Auburn and had a tougher schedule

                            It's about right, I thought Kentucky should have been in there somewhere, 20-25 maybe.

                              OU at #7. I thought (or would think) the CFP teams would finish at least in the top 4.

                              Not complaining though!

                                I count 5 in the top 14 (LSU, Ugly, UF, Bammer and Barn) with 8 in the top 36 (aTm, ut and KY).

                                  OU got demolished by LSU. Comparing our performance against LSU at BR with their performance on a neutral site and you can see why they are ranked below us.

                                  That being said, I don't care for moral victories. We have not even won our division, let alone our conference. No body cares where we rank in the AP poll.

                                    Dan’s base level for the program at year 2 is better than I expected. Currently at top 10 or bust. An entertaining rebuild so far. Adding victory over UGA is the next essential step. Must win in Jax in 2020.

                                    Recruiting is improving some, but not quite enough to put us intrinsically into a top 4 base level. We lack the small number of top-end athletes every championship caliber team seems to have.

                                    It is essential one of them is your QB. Others are also needed. Guys like Jamar Chase, Ettienne, Spikes, Harvin just make those few extra plays that lessor athletes cannot. Those players tip the scale in big games. Opponents have to scheme around them. I don’t see anyone on Florida’s roster at that level, yet. Hoping Wingo is one. Need just 1 to 3 on each side of the ball, plus a solid base of 4 stars across the board. We have the base, need to add the boost.
