    Kickoff at 7:00 tomorrow from Orlando on ESPN. I normally like to see ACC teams win their out-of-conference games, but I'll make an exception since I hate da U. Go Gators!!

    Yep. My Conference Pride does not extend to Cholo Naysh. Or to the Goblers. Or to the Florida State dumpster fire. Go Gators.

    I'm torn between "öööö da U" and "öööö the media's SEC bias".

    Going to a housewarming/tailgate party at my brothers who married into UF fandom. But I’m fairly practiced at cheering for different teams internally/externally with him going to VT. So I’ll decide who I’m cheering for during the game.

    Probably start with conference pride and flip as soon as they start douching it up.

    Da U fans will turn on a coach quickly. I'd like to see the Diaz era get off to a rough start.

    Low scoring game, go ACC. Nothing in the SECSPN is worth rooting for, except against uga of course.

    Soft spot for the Gators and Manny Diaz is punchable. I won't be upset if Miami wins one for ACC pride, but no way in hell am I "rooting" for them.

    Same here. If Miami wins, I hope it's close and UF is still a good team that can take it to UGAg this year. If UF wins, I hope it's by a lot.

    BS...I hope they end up in a tie. Go like 72 overtime periods with neither team being able to score and the game ends in a tie with ESPN proclaiming that both suck and neither will be on national TV again.

    I'd be okay with a Gator loss.

    I am absolutely pulling for Miami. We still let human bias pick the playoffs, and as long as that happens I'm pulling for ACC teams against any SEC team.

    That’s a good question.
