Florida vs. Georgetown, Game Thread: Can the short-handed Gators hold back the Hoyas?

Florida's got a seven-man rotation with six scholarship players again. Will it be enough against Georgetown? Florida's first game in the 2014 Battle 4 Atlantis tips tonight at 9:30 p.m. Eastern on something called AXS TV — which you will have to find on your cable or satellite box, to be sure, though channel listings are below — as the Gators take on Georgetown. And that's a recipe for defeat, especially given the Gators' deficiencies up front.

The tie that was a win for FSU against Florida 20 years ago

Bobby Bowden said he’s never liked the word “choke” in any context, much less a game 20 years ago that quite possibly is the most memorable to be played by the Florida State Seminoles at Doak Campbell Stadium. “A guy plays as hard as he can, and makes a mistake by playing hard, and people want to call it a ‘choke,’ ” said the former FSU coach. “It’s not fair.” But that word, paired with another, has been as much a part of FSU fan lexicon as “Fear the Spear,” or “The Chop,” ever since a gray November day in 1994 when the Seminoles staged a rally for the ages. read...

However, the Seminoles’ defense of 2013 throttled Roper’s offense and won 45-7. read more
