    One of the biggest misconceptions about North Florida. Average low in Gville from December-February is low 40's, with it routinely dipping into the low 30's or even 20's. I've been to Fl/ga games in early November that were stupid cold. Now, it doesn't typically stick throughout the day like it does in northern states. But anything above Marion County and inland is a totally different climate from the rest of the state.

        Senior year (76-77) it SNOWED. Not a lot, just flurries. Still, I was walking back to frat house in my Army ROTC dress greens and was wondering what the protocol was for experiencing that atmospheric condition without a coat (it's that you just let your uniform get damp). Of course, by the time I became a 2LT later that year, I HAD a topcoat for my dress greens.

        So yes, it can get pretty cold in N FL in the winter. I also remember that miserable loss to U Md in the 75 Gator Bowl, at night. We lost 13-0. It was really cold in Jax that night, damp, and really miserable (compounding it was the awful play of what was, to that time, one of the greatest Gator teams ever).

        Most here? :crazy:

        I expect to beat the **** out of them. I think we're going to rush for 250+ yards.

          When the game is played during the season has been jerked around lately. For the first, say, 15 - 20 or so yrs of divisional play, it was ALWAYS the week after UGA, so it was often cool (or cold) up there in central TN.

          Now who knows when it's played? This year in mid-October. Last year, late Sept, but it was at our place. Next year - back to the week after UGA, I just looked it up, it's Nov 9th.

          And we've had quite a few of these noon ET starts up there lately. So our players have to be ready for an 11 am CT start. While I am sure we will win, several factors here make it into the possibility of a "trap game." If Mac were still the HC, I would say yes. But I think Dan has their heads on straight, and he'll have them ready.

            The Commodores have no O. I don't even understand how we are only, what, a 9 pt favorite. Our defense will probably shut them out, and our offense will get it in gear and crush them. The final very well may look something like Gators 48, Commodores 0.

            And BTW, I don't think I ran that quote function properly, :scratchhead::scratchhead:

                my jr year. Sitting in a class in old Fla Gym. We look out and see snow. Begin moving toward the door and the prof. asks why. We said, "you MUST not be from around here" Great day in gville. No real snow since then to speak of.

                  I think Vandy will play us tough early, like they always do. We’ll pull away in the second half. Final will be something like 31-13

                    I don't know about 48-0 but I agree that it's not likely to be a competitive game. That's why I said earlier I don't see this as being a potential trap game. These Gators are a team on the rise, they are looking to prove themselves and are not in any position to be complacent about anything.

                    Mighty G's 42-10, and 7 of the 10 comes in garbage time.

                        We’ve failed to score more than 21 only once, and they’ve never scored more than 21in that streak. But yeah, it’s always a nail biter cause it happened once or twice. Just like we’ll lose to every FCS team forever because Georgia Southern.
