Default Bleacher Report - Top 10 Most Cowardly Programs in College Football

Interesting article from Bleacher Report - which I'm SURE should draw some responses here!

Top 10 Most Cowardly Programs in College Football

Coming in at #1 - THE Most Cowardly Program in College Football...

Florida Gators!

I donít know whether there is a joint effort between head coach Urban Meyer and athletic director Jeremy Foley to keep worthy opponents from entering Gainesville, but at least one of them has to rise up and grow a set, because the Gatorsí current nonconference scheduling practices are downright appalling and, quite frankly, a little embarrassing.

Dating back to when the NCAA expanded the regular season schedule to 12 games prior to 2006, other than its yearly bout with Florida State, Florida has played just one non-SEC game against an opponent residing from a BCS conference (Miami in í08).

During last season alone, Florida played Troy, Florida International, and Charleston Southern, which arrived at The Swamp as a 62-point underdog. The Gators outscored the three 180-12. What good does that do? What is gained by running up 70 points on the Citadel?
