I figured out why the Florida Gators won’t play outside the state of Florida! Am I Wrighster or Wrong?
Before last season’s game against Michigan at Cowboy’s Stadium in Dallas, the last time they won a regular season non-conference game outside of Florida was 1989 (they won at Memphis State).
And the last non-conference regular-season win for the Gators outside of Florida against a team that finished with a winning record was in 1947, against North Carolina State. Yes, 1947. 71 years ago.
I’m not so sure I would leave the state if I were having so much trouble beating Florida State and Miami lately.
And nothing is changing any time soon with their future schedules. The conferences and playoff committee have to put this sort of nonsense to rest. This is awful for college football. If you can find more outrageous stories than this send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
