    Well, I should be a U of I Vandals fan, but I moved to Boise which just so happens to have a team that is a little easier to root for.

    We've already knocked off Oregon, and really all there is to left do is to cruise our way through the remainder of our schedule, hopefully we'll go undefeated this year.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    Yea well, if Ark makes those 2 missed field goals they win.

    The refs definitely didn't hurt, but the game was theirs to win.

    Living in Arkansas I get to hear all about it. Honestly, I was rooting for the hogs on the inside (and if you tell ANYONE I work with, I will kill you ).

    Why such a close match? I've heard a few theories - 1) Ark offense is actually decent, 2) FL was hungover from LSU, 3) FL was a bit over confident 'cause it's Ark, 4) it's all the refs fault (but that goes for every game ever played in the history of sports with a ref).

    BCS intelligence - College Football - Rivals.com

    Great article about Florida and Texas's easy schedule.

    BCS rewards easy schedules, so many SEC teams dodge tough non conference opponents. Great journalistic article.

    SEC suspends Florida-Arkansas officiating crew - ESPN

    "A series of calls that have occurred during the last several weeks have not been to the standard that we expect from our officiating crews," SEC commissioner Mike Slive said Wednesday. "I believe our officiating program is the best in the country. However, there are times when these actions must be taken."

    SEC associate commissioner Charles Bloom said this is the first time the league has publicly suspended a football crew like this.

    How does what the refs do have anything to do with the Gators. If they won due to ref calls, they did so unwittingly. If there is some great conspiracy to keep the Gators from losing, they are definitely not complicit in it. (the players and urban that is, the rich alumni might have an effect).

    Officiating nearly always favors the big teams. Human nature is biased like that.
