Oh Florida, how do I hate thee, let me count the ways
OK, maybe not hate.
So, AU and UF are both sitting at 4-2, both rebuilding, both better than the bad teams but not as good as the good teams. Both staring at mediocrity in the face, this is the swing game on both schedules. Win and you're looking at 7 or 8 wins and a bowl game somewhere warm. Lose and you're looking at 5 or 6 wins, and a bowl game in early December on the NFL network.
There should be a ton of hate, but nope, can't find it... it's not there...
If it's not hate what is it?
You know when your aunt's in town and wants to go to Applebees? You've never really had a bad meal there, but nothing good either, and you know you're not supposed to like it, but eh...
You run into that guy in third grade who used to make fun of your name, then you realize he probably had a rough family life, and your name does kind of rhyme with fart, but still...
The pop group who sings that annoying/catchy tune and you don't turn it off immediately, but you've had your fill after about the second chorus...
A book, that everybody was reading that summer and raved about it, then you picked it up right before the movie came out and wondered what all the fuss was about and why you wasted $20 and didn't just get it from the library?
Or, when they're ranked #1 in the country, but you're on probation and you play lights out and beat them at their place, only to have that peak the season and then you tie and lose to your two real rivals to end the year?
Or, you beat them and their all everything quarterback who everybody hates, but nobody really knows why and send them on to lose 4 games, only to lose 4 yourself and and up in the Chick-fil-a bowl vs. F* Clemson.
Or, you are their only loss, in a National Championship year, and you're pretty good, but have inexplicable losses to Ark and Georgia along the way.
So, Fuck Clemson and you know, whatever, efff Florida, or something.
I found something.
