Many are asking “Is Friday the last night of the Florida dynasty?” Source: ESPN. Friday, January 1, 2010, Florida plays Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl, but it may be the last time (for a long time) they play in a bowl. Urban Meyer, the coach that led the Gators to 2 National Championships, suffered chest pains after the loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship. He said he will retire then he said he will take off indefinitely. Add to that his star quarterback, Tim Tebow, is graduating. Florida wont be the powerhouse again for several years, if ever.
At the same time, Florida State is retiring a legion, Bobby Bowden, after 33 years. Friday, FSU won against West Virginia in the Gator Bowl – it was his last game.
