Boneyard whackjobs will claim they are FF bound if they win this one. Reality is that Florida is not good right now. They look very bubbly.
C'mon man, Florida was ranked 15 and UConn beat them. Give them credit.

Florida was top 10 and lost to a mediocre FSU squad. They then barely held off Towson by 6. Their offense is not good. So their ranking is based off pre season hype more than anything. They have 9 new faces.

It's a good win for UConn after an awful loss at home to St Joe's. My point wasn't it saying it would mean nothing. Just to note it isn't as impressive as I am sure they will tout it over there. Florida's offense looks like SU's last year.

Syracuse wins tournament games and beats Duke : “ THEY ONLY WIN BY SCORING 60 WHO WANTS TO WATCH OR WIN LIKE THAT

UConn gets their 2nd win in 18 tries vs an overrated ranked team by scoring 60: “THEYRES NO SUCH THING AS AN UGLY WIN GOTTA LOVE THE DEFENSE”

If you don't want to win (anything of consequence) Syracuse is a great choice.
Conference realignment and their Cal Ripkenesque streak of losing seasons has broken their brains so completely and irreversibly they’ve collectively blue-pilled themselves into believing it’s perpetually 2009.

That's my point. Dont be hypocrites like that. A win is a win and a loss is loss.

Lol we went to the final four 4 years ago and the sweet 16 2 years ago.

Not following where there was hypocrisy in my post at all. Everything I said was based on the expected reaction of the boneyard very much in line with the entire premise of this thread.

Also nothing I called out about Florida is crazy either. The Boneyard screaming about this win as more than it was is no different than any SU fan contending beating Colgate somehow shows UVA was an anomaly and we are most certainly set for great things this year.

Neither is more than an irrational take, yet it will happen in both cases.

NYT article on schools starting or dropping football teams. {May be behind paywall.}

Relevant quote:

Roby [the AD who ended football at Northeastern], who retired last year, understood the bitterness. But he insisted he had acted in the best interests of Northeastern in an era when the supremacy of college football is being questioned.

He pointed to the University of Connecticut, which in recent years invested heavily in football to compete at the highest level in the N.C.A.A. The program has struggled to attract fans and is 11-45 in the also-ran American Athletic Conference since 2013.

“They can’t draw anybody to games, they have no natural rivalries and they’re not very good,” Roby said. “Is that what people want?”

That was a painful day for me, but storz being in a BCS bowl was the #2 reason. I did a parlay on all the NYD bowl games that year. I got the first one wrong (can't remember, too lazy to look it up) when the other side made a Fucillo like 2nd half comeback. Of course I got all the remaining ones correct.
