Man, what an ass kicking. I had a feeling Grossman would still get to play, and what a job he did off the bench. Several Gators set or tied records tonight. Just a great night to be a Gator.

It was a sad day for all terps fans...but i'm just happy they got in to a BCS bowl...

I knew they would lose, but not 56-23...

besides, who ever thought that they would be ranked 6th, go 10-2 and be the outright ACC champ?

In a way, I was disappointed. Not with the outcome, mind you - I'm a Gators fan myself - but rather that there wasn't much in the way of competition. The Orange Bowl is kind of turning into the way the Super Bowl was in the early '90's - lopsided and virtually suspense-free.

To me, all these bowl are meaningless...if you're not after the nat'l championship, then the bowl is meaningless...

"whoo-whooo! we are the champs!!!!"

the only thing that they "won" was a night game. the team gets $$$, but should bad teams be rewarded? the Big 12 had like what, 8 teams in bowl games...(Baylor, Kansas, OK State, and Missouri were the only big 12 teams not to make it to the post season)

how can you tell me that a team coming in 8th of 12 in a conf. gets rewarded with a bowl game???

How can Kansas State go (3-5) (6-6) and go to the bowl?

I was praying for Nebraska to win.

Only in college football can a team win the "National championship game" and still not be the National Champs...(a cornhusker win all but guarented a Duck-'Cane co-championship)

And only in College football could a team lose the "National championship game" and be declared the (co-)National champs...

Playoff, playoff, playoff.

All the whiners say, "But it will ruin the tradition of the bowl games." And I say GOOD! it's a sucky tradition. I for one will not miss a minute sleep if they get rid of the Bowl.

We need a playoff, bigtime.

By the way, congrats to Miami, but GO GATORS!

The best thing about that game was the remarkable singing of the National anthem.

Steve Spurrier resigns?!

The fact that Dennis Green resigned a couple hours before can't be a coincidence.

Eddie certainly not the player he once was. He's still a very solid starter but I don't think he's in that upper tier anymore even though I'm sure he'll give a solid effort each time out there.
