Rivals

As I'm watching the replay I can't help but think the Gators probably have more 'Rivals' then any other team in the NCAA. I would think Notre Dame could come in second. Next season we play 5 out of 6.

Only three true rivals on that list are UT, UGA, and FSU. The other three, including scUM, don't qualify.

With you. How is Auburn any more of a rival than anyone else in the West? Also, Miami? While our history with them has been less than cordial, we don't play them enough for them to be our rival. And even though we play LSU every year, we really have no bad blood with them.

BTW, we're gonna wipe the field with Miami next year, as well as FSU, UT, Auburn and UGA. It ain't gonna be pretty.

Just because we hate them does not mean they are rivals. Gatorbait!

I have to disagree about Miami not being a rival. Ask old time Gators; up until the mid-80's, they were a bigger rival than FSU. The Noles took that place only after we stopped playing Miami yearly. To me:

1) Georgia
1) FSU

3) Miami (only because it's not annual)

4) Tennessee
5) LSU

6) Bama (because of SEC Title history)
