Now, I could make an argument that Florida's BCS title-game hopes aren't entirely shot. But after watching this game, the idea of a 12-1 season with an SEC title -- having to still beat LSU, Georgia and the SEC West champ -- seems ludicrous.
Not to take anything away from Ole Miss or diminish Florida's 3 turnovers (their first 3 turnovers of the season, incredibly -- which, naturally, turned into 10 Ole Miss points). But let's be real here -- this bearishness is what I'd project if I wasn't a Gators fan.
(No, I have not been able to stop blogging, as promised above. It's therapeutic, I guess. Cripes, I remain so freaking disappointed.)
