Gators are national champs.

The Florida Gators won this season's college football national championship with a 41-14 win over the top-ranked and very much favored Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Gators embarrassed the Buckeyes. Other than giving up a TD on the opening kickoff, Florida absolutely dominated this game. It was a complete and thorough butt-whipping.

I was surprised. I really thought Ohio State would win. I thought that Florida's offense had been too inconsistent all year (especially in the line) and that Ohio State had just too many big-play weapons on offense that would negate Florida's team speed. An injury to Ted Ginn, Jr. after he returned the opening kickoff really hurt the Ohio State offense, but with the way the Florida defensive line was always beating the Ohio State offensive line, I am not sure having Ginn in the game would have mattered. And Ginn's injury did not affect the Ohio State defense, which Florida made look like a high school team.

One of my best friends from college is from Florida and grew up a Gators fan and is still a big fan. So, Trey, wherever you are, be loud and be proud, my Gator friend!
