When the 2004 football schedule came out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this year, they probably had no idea how big this week would be for them. They had a BYE week. And they are very lucky they didn’t play because no major football team from the state of Florida won this weekend.
In Florida, there are 3 major universities. They all lost. First time since 1978 that happened. The University of Florida lost to Georgia. Florida State lost to Maryland. The University of Miami lost to North Carolina (with these ACC losses, have the rest of the ACC arrived?) Heck, even the University of Central Florida lost to Marshall (not much of a surprise…they are still the worst team in Division I-A football)!
In Florida, there are also 3 professional football teams. The two that played both lost. Jacksonville lost to Houston. Miami lost to the NY Jets.
Like I said, Tampa Bay is very lucky they didn’t play this weekend.
