Florida Gators played great

Your story on the Gators BCS Championship was most enjoyable.

I graduated from the UF when Steve Spurrier was a Gator quarterback and had the pleasure of being a Gator band member when he kicked the winning field goal against Auburn, putting him on the path to win the Heisman Trophy.

College football has always been more satisfying to watch than professional football as it involves more spirit from students and alumni.

The SEC has always been a difficult conference where you can expect a challenge from every team. Whatever team wins the SEC championship should be well prepared for a BCS game.

Living in Michigan for the past 37 years, I have followed Michigan-Ohio football and appreciate their rivalry that is much like the Florida-Florida State contest requiring play-making at the highest level to win, being a real treat for football fans to watch.

Coach Meyer and his staff should be congratulated for doing a superb j ob in preparing the Gator football team in achieving their goal as BCS Champions; matching what the Gator basketball program achieved earlier.

Simply remarkable!
