WILL THE 12TH GAME MEAN AN ANNUAL GATOR-HURRICANE SHOWDOWN?

Not likely says Michael Dirocco of Jacksonville.com in a nice article about the Gators search to fill that 12th game. Expect them to play a home and away ocassionally or possibly at a neutral site in Orlando or Tampa but not until at least 2008 as the open dates for the two teams do not match up well. While many around the sunshine state would love to see this as an annual rivalry, it might not make sense for the state of Florida's football to have all three teams beat up on each other every year while we still have a fairly ridiculous means of deciding who plays for the mythical national championship.
