I am by no means a Louisville fan but I told my friends the day of the game that I didnt feel it would be a Gator blowout. My reasoning was, this wasnt a Spurrier or Meyer Florida team. They would beat you by a score of 21-13 rather than 52-10.
The following scores are 3 of their last 4 games.
Missouri W 14-7
Louisiana-Lafayette W 27-20
Jacksonville State W 23-0
A Spurrier/Meyer team would have put at least 40 on the board against those teams and ran them off the field.
Louisville's defense played the way it did earlier in the season, which was excellent, and Florida didnt have the offense to catch up.
I realize they are the second highest rated team but I feel like at best they are the 3rd best. It is debatable but I didnt feel like the Gators should have been playing in that game. Georgia made a believer out of me against Bama. That rule that kept them out of the BCS game and put Florida in is silly to me.
I realize a rule is a rule but UGA was ranked 3rd and was within one play of knocking off Bama in what was truly a classic football game but they "drop" in rankings and go to a lesser bowl (after beating Florida in season).
I felt like Florida was more of a 8 or 9 overall ranked team rather than a #3.
That being said, Louisville deserves the credit as TB is the real deal and will probably be vaulted on the national scene for the upcoming season after that game.
It may be junior season and on to pros.
