Little Ten Conference: Overrated

Florida - 41
Ohio State - 14

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Everybody got it wrong except the Gators.

Last night, Florida kicked Ohio State, almost every sports writer in the country, and the Big Ten Conference in the teeth. Even though I loathe Florida almost as much as their cross-state rival Florida State, I have to say they put on a great show last night.

It was textbook SEC football and before you could dot the "i" in Ohio, the Buckeyes were sent packing, their over-hyped Heisman winning QB spent more time running than a hillbilly on COPS and more time on his back than an intern at The Clinton Foundation.

On the other hand, the Ohio State band did a great job last night. Their Titanic half-time show was inspired unlike the play of their football team. Nice spats.
