The dust has finally settled after the 2021 college football season concluded with the Georgia Bulldogs seizing the national championship crown from the Alabama Crimson Tide last Monday for their first national title in four decades. Things went very differently for the Florida Gators last fall, finishing the season with a losing record after being bested by the Central Florida Knights in the Gasparilla Bowl.
It was a season to forget for fans of the Orange and Blue and the national media agrees. The Gators put up their worst record in Southeastern Conference play since 1986 while making history in other notorious ways as well. The only real saving grace for Florida was its win over the Florida State Seminoles, which was needed to even qualify for a bowl game bid.
