I was pulling for the Gators, but it was hard with the stupid playcalling.

Why did they go for 2 when they went up 13-7? The reverse lateral pass has already been discussed. Stupid stupid stupid.

Yes, we know you disagree with their being picked for the Gator Bowl. But the truth is, there was no alternative. The Gator just didnt want Virginia (they were 8-5), and if they had picked Maryland, they would have either had to go with a rematch with Notre Dame or West Virginia (and I doubt the schools would have agreed to the rematch since they were both blowouts), or get an 8-4 Pittsburgh team. Obviously, NC State was the only choice.

The problem with the ACC this year is that they did not have a big non-conference victory prior to the bowls (and I don't consider MD beating WV a big victory). It was hard to make a case for them w/o having such a victory.
Thankfully the ACC will have at least one HUGE non-conference victory next season on September 13, 2003

Yeah - UVA was 8-5. Look at their non-conference schedule though.

I'm guessing this is the date NC State plays Ohio State.
