With the teams they played why not
Doesn't even matter, brother. 4 quarters away from Atlanta.
YOUR RIGHT GOOOOO GATORS #just win
No because Bama is clearly the better team
LOL, Noles gonna hate.
Hey I somewhat want y'all to come into Doak undefeated, because if y'all get past UGA your schedule is weak until our game.
yes just off resume bama can take it back with a beatdown on lsu or if they beat tenn like i expect just leave them as #1 it could really go either way
No - Bama cannot be jumped unless they lose
Should UF be #1? Yes. Are they #1? Not so sure, but you can't argue with their victories and they are of course undefeated. I still think Bama is the better team, but if any team in the SEC can beat Bama, it's UF. Should be an interesting SECCG. I'm looking forward to my Ducks playing either one of those teams in Miami.

Based on the schedule? Perhaps
Based on perception? Hell no
Bama has owned Florida the past 3 years ..... 2009, 2010, and 2011.
Bama is the defending champions
Bama is undefeated
If our offense was better i would say we have a shot against Bama, but Bama is clearly the #1 team in the country.
We have to get to Atlanta and prove ourselves before we deserve any hype IMO.
I do believe we should be #2 in the BCS with our schedule, but we would lose to Bama.
We've still got two very tough games in UGA and FSU, not to mention Mizzou as well.
Bama has handed our arse to us, until we face them again and beat them, they should be #1.
The Gators are a top 5 team, based on our wins i think we're #2, but i don't feel like we're the #2 team in the country.

Who would have thought
Based on resume, absolutely.
Based on who's the better team, no.
refreshing to see a very objective post.
i say technically yes based on their schedule, even though SCAR is a complete fraud, and LSU is not as good as their ranking either.
but UF's offense is not good and does not justify a jump over alabama who has played both good offense and defense
if Bama loses then yes, UF will jump up but for now they have peaked. i dont see any real way UF will jump Bama unless Bama loses a game.
FSU Ambassador to the masses
Please make them #1. Can't wait for this one.......
Agreed, until we beat Bama they're #1 as the defending champs(or until they lose)
Bama has owned Florida the past 3 years.
As a Gator if I want to say we're better than Bama, i want to see the Gators beat Bama.
good with me it would only help our S.O.S after Atlanta( not that it would matter).
I try not to be a homer as much as i can but there are times where i support my Gators.
I do believe we should be ranked #2 with our wins over A&M, LSU, and now South Carolina.
I don't talk shizz to FSU or UGA fans until we beat them, even though ill poke fun at Nole fans for losing to NC State.
This team is a lot like 2006, we're winning with defense and special teams.
Our offense is nothing to write home about, although to be fair we've faced two really good defenses the past 3 weeks that would make a lot of offense look bad.
Look what South Carolina did to UGA or LSU to A&M.
A lot of people will see the score of our game vs South Carolina and say wow, but as a Gator it feels a lot closer than the score shows.
I don't know its odd, Florida this year reminds a lot of Gator fans about the Gators in 06.
Now will we win the national championship? Highly unlikely, with our defense we're capable,but i would have to see it first and i probably still wouldn't believe it.
Gators have a great defense, one of the best in the country IMO, maybe even the best. But our offense isn't there against elite defense, they do enough to win but they're not difference makers.
We're a spitting image of Bama with the way we play, but Bama is better at that style of play than we are right now.
But urban left them with no talent so definitely no!!!!
What is URban's specialty?
Now name the offensive players, besides Gilly (whom Urbs didnt play), that are lighting people up.
Exactly, there's talent on defense but very little on offense.
He did recruit Driskel and Reed.
Florida is going to be terrible after Meyer's recruits are gone.
