Florida's Run to the SEC Title: Scorched Earth

Florida 31, Alabama 20.

And with that victory last night in the Georgia Dome, Florida capped what was an amazing run through their last nine games, and the SEC Championship.

For those of us who weren't alive during the Civil War, Florida has gone to the trouble of re-enacting General Sherman's March to the Sea.

As a result of this dramatic re-enactment on behalf of the Gators, we think there is only one term that best describes what Florida has done to its opponents the past two and a half months: scorched earth.

It's as if this season Coach Urban Meyer has channelled his inner Les Grossman (Tom Cruise's foul-mouthed super-producer character in "Tropic Thunder")

In fact, they might be the same person, considering this quote by Grossman seems to adequately describe Meyer's message to anyone in Florida's way this season:

"So whatever you're thinking, you'd better think again! Otherwise I'm gonna have to head down there and I will rain down in a Godly f***ing firestorm upon you! You're gonna have to call the f***ing United Nations and get a f***ing binding resolution to keep me from f***ing destroying you. I'm talking scorched earth, motherf***er! I will massacre you! I WILL F*** YOU UP! "

Yeah, that about sums up Florida's run through the SEC.

Tonight, at 8, the final BCS standings will be released, and it's expected that Florida and Oklahoma will face off for the national championship in Miami next month. We're not gonna lie, we can't wait for that game.
