Rant My Life: Florida Gators Fall to Louisville Cardinals in Embarrassing Fashion
After finishing with just one loss during the regular season, the Florida Gators seemed like a team capable of competing for the National Championship at one point–especially with a steller defense. With a matchup against the Louisville Cardinals in this year’s Sugar Bowl, the Gators seemed like they would have no trouble on Wednesday considering they entered the contest as 14-point favorites.
Unfortunately for the Gators, they didn’t last as favorites for long once the game got under way.
Florida had no answers for Louisville on Wednesday as they trailed 14-0 early before going on to lose the game 33-23. For anyone who didn’t know Teddy Bridgewater before the Sugar Bowl, they will certainly remember him now as the quarterback carried the Cardinals on his shoulders all game by completing 20 of 32 passes for 266 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.
For years, the SEC has always been considered the best conference in college football and nobody expected this game to be close since Louisville plays in the Big East–arguably one of the weakest conferences in college football. The Cardinals were supposed to be this weak Big East team that just happened to stumble into a BCS game, but instead–they made a huge statement to prove they deserved to be there.
There were plenty of things that went wrong with Florida against Louisville on Wednesday, but maybe having Tim Tebow watching the game from the sidelines (just like he does in the NFL) was some sort of jinx for the Gators collapsing in this one.
