Close but...

Another close loss for the Rebels against a Top 25 team. There is a lot of discussion on moral victories on the chat boards. Some folks are sick of them, others are really proud of our team. I fall somewhere in between.
I am really proud of the way the Rebs played today. No one, not even the coaching staff's wives thought we could beat Florida. Florida averaged just over 55 points a game before today's game. 55 points! WOW. To hold them to 30 and have a chance to beat them in the end, I think anyone would take that scenario. It didn't work out. It hasn't worked out the last 4 or 5 times in these situations. But, folks, if we keep playing this way, it will happen.
Yes, I am disappointed in a loss. A win today would have been huge for our program. A close loss, while surprising, is a loss. However, after today, I feel much better about the season. I think we can snatch a win or two against teams we are not suppose to win. That coupled with a couple of wins against La Tech and Northwestern State will put us in good position on Egg Bowl day.
Georgia is up next. Hotty Toddy, go get em Rebs!

You gentlemen played us very well. So well in fact that I almost got sick.

I know there are no moral victories, but you left an impression on this Gator.

Good luck the rest of the way.
