The Gators have become boring.

They've won the BCS title for the second time in three years, again holding a team many pundits (though this time not the bettors) thought an unstoppable scoring machine to a mere two TDs. Is this enough to silence that portion of the commentatoriate that, every year, finds some reason to declare SEC teams inferior to the Big 10, Pac 10, Big 12, whatever is the flavor of the moment? Probably not.

But, for me, the Gators have committed the unforgivable transgression: they're no longer underdogs.

Fortunately for me, now there's USF football.

Update: Maybe this year's better-than-the-SEC flavor will be the Mountain West.
