Yeah, that was a surprising result. Haven't heard anyone talking about whether Florida should have been there anymore.

Ha Ha !! I think I'll ban you for a week.

I watched the pre-show and felt that they were hexed, doomed, or whatever since not one person felt Florida would win.

Yes, Annette, it's a sports thing. We'll send you a pm if a shoe topic comes up.

That's OK Annette, don't feel left out. I don't follow golf either so it's hard to understand what's going on.

The Florida Gators defeated the Ohio Buckeyes to capture the college football title.

"Defeated" is being kind to Mattison.

Another great year for the SEC with 6 teams in the AP top 25.

Gators Two sport National Champions. And, Annette, they even won the Dances with the Stars Championship.

Thanks, TG, for answering my very simple question.

and it explains everything.......orange & blue is very attractive & unique. they are complimentary (opposite) colors, very contrasting, vibrant, energetic.

whereas red & white is just sooo boring & common. totally passe.

when you look good, you feel good, so naturally Florida won.

Can you imagine the new market that would open up if someone discovered the psychology in Annette's argument was valid?
