I just read Jess' post. Now, I feel a little better.

I think UF's loss can only be motivation for our team, and it wouldn't surprise me if it came up in our team discussions. If I'm right, a redshirt senior this year was at that Utah game. If you start off playing flat in such a high-pressure game there's almost no recovering.
Did you see how the UF players acted last night? Every time they tackled someone they acted like they had an "S" on their chests despite the 30-10 score. Their attitude problem was pretty evident.
Also, I don't know if Jeff Driskell has been that bad all year, but he's a sack begging to happen. Can't take two steps up into the pocket; stands still for 8 seconds staring at one receiver. A Bama or UGA or LSU would have just rammed it down UL's throats with ease.
Actually, I read an article last week dione by a ND type, that detailed all the "omens" and similarities between this team and previous Champions. I took a quick look and could not find it jsut now - but it was very interesting
