Florida wins it all. I know don't look ahead line but I'm not a player or a coach so who cares...Me thinking ahead means nothing.
We will have face
Seven top ten opponents. Lsu, usce, Georgia, Fsu, secw champ, bcs title game. Assuming Fsu is top ten. Seven.
Does it go down as the most impressive SOS in modern cfb history?
No because UF didn't play any OOC games or leave the state of Florida, the SEC is overrated, and they won ugly.
I posed this very question to some co workers. And they placed it in the "SEC delusion" category that non SEC fans created.
I think it's the toughest...EVER.
That's what I'm saying. No matter how many top teams UF plays everyone just thinks UF fans are delusional and that the SEC is overrated. If K State or Oregon beat teams that were ranked 3 (LSU) 7 (USCe) and 20 (TAMU) they would be looked at as great and the best team in the country, but since it's UF ehhh the SEC is overrated and UF is getting lucky. F the media and all the haters, UF is doing it big this year and if people can't recognize that then they need to stop watching college football.

Agree with everything said here. People are confusing SEC dominance for SEC bias. It's really unfortunate that the talking head's can't seem to distinguish between the two.
You guys make a lot of valid points.
I think the sports media's main problem with UF is that they went 7-6 last year, started the season ranked 23, and are running a ground-n-pound offense. We don't put up the sexy numbers WVU, FSU, and Oregon are. We aren't completely manhandling every team like Bama is. So we are an after thought. Since we can't be labeled or have 1 big playmaker they can feature, I think they just think we are no good. Just my take on it.
Defense wins champs
And the aggies
All three big games...lowest scoring outputs of the season. Our d plays big.
Win every game and they'll eventually shut up. But I can't WAIT until 'Bama or UF (I hope) stomps a freaking mud hole in Oregon or K-State.

Dont forget UT was ranked 23 when we played them
Just made this point in another thread. Absolutely. If we win it all and go undefeated, we would beat 6 teams that were in the top 6 of the BCS at one point, with Oregon being the other. Add in a tough Texas A&M team on the road, a team that will likely finish top 20, and you can't find a tougher schedule. Not saying we are the best team of the BCS era, but without a doubt will have had the toughest schedule.
No, because everyone wants to watch teams score as many points as in an NBA game (and with the same amount of defense as one, too, apparently...). You're not good unless you put up at least 50 on your opponent these days.
Not sure if it will be hardest SOS, but it could equal it. IIRC, we had the #1 overall SOS in either 06 or 08.
Don't want to get ahead of ourselves here. I'm thrilled that we're on track to blow away my 8-4/9-3 expectation. LSU had a pretty hard road last year, but they did come up short.
I think we won't get the respect unless we beat Bama. The media needs one contender from each area to keep ratings and interest up. Bama is already taking that spot in the southeast. Notre Dame represents the midwest/northeast (not geographically but fan base), K State the southwest, and Oregon the west coast.
The networks are terrified of another all SEC championship game. The ratings and game were awful last year.
Luckily ...IF... we win out it won't matter.
06 was like 4th I think.
08 was 1st. But even that schedule wasn't near as tough.
In 08 we played the number 1 ranked team twice back to back (Bama and Okla) and beat them both. I don't that's ever been done before or since.
