On Saturday, LSU demolished Florida 41-11 and pushed the Gators out of the Top 25 AP Poll.
Not just the Gators – the entire state of Florida.
For the first time since Dec. 6, 1982, no team in the state of Florida is in the AP rankings, ending a run of 472 AP polls that included one or more of Florida, Florida State or Miami. Central Florida and South Florida were also in there a time or two.
Of course, there is a problem. The LSU team that swept the Gators into the dust bin is the Vols’ opponent on Saturday.
Damned reality checks…
