Ohio State was the favorite, but the Gators won rather decisively. On any given day, any team can win. I always say when the dream's big enough, the facts don't count, and the Gators proved that last night.
Gainesville must be quite insane right now! I remember being there on game day for a book signing last September. One could not miss all the excited Florida fans! And I can imagine my character's excitement with this win - both Lori and James attended the University of Florida.
Hopefully no one remembers that just two years ago, they had a crocodile instead of a gator on their booklet!
