Tennessee at Florida to be played as scheduled, but who are we for?

The Southeastern Conference announced today that the game between Tennessee and Florida, slated for 3:30 pm this coming Saturday, will proceed as scheduled. The Florida weather had threatened the game, but Gainesville is ready to play host to the two SEC rivals.

Now that it’s good to go, let’s decide which team Kentucky fans should want to win.

On one hand, we have our hatred for all things Tennessee. As is the case with Duke basketball and anything Louisville, we want Tennessee to lose every game it plays. BUT, do we want Florida looking at the Kentucky game as a must-win next week? You’ll get angry Gators coming off the loss with their backs against the wall.

On that same point, if Tennessee beats Florida at Florida, maybe Florida isn’t very good right now and it makes the Cats’ chance of victory even higher. If Tennessee goes down to Gainesville and steals one, we could be seeing a vulnerable Florida team with lots of questions to answer.

So I don’t know. I think I lean rooting for Tennessee because I think Florida is the biggest threat in the East outside of Georgia. With a guaranteed loss at Alabama on its schedule, Tennessee’s going to have a hard time taking the SEC East anyway, so why not let Florida go ahead and take an L at home to level the playing field in the standings. But I’m also afraid of a Florida team looking for a bounce-back game.

What do you think, BBN?

    I’m rooting for a giant sinkhole

    I dislike the Gators more than I dislike the Vols. I’m pulling for TN. I don’t think a loss will motivate FL to play any harder against us. I’m sure the motivation is already there to extend the streak against us.

    If Tennessee was playing North Korea, I would pull for North Korea

    Florida, because the other option is Tennessee. And I wanna see their coach spongebob squarehead explode.

    For Florida, duh. I hate Tennessee.

    We new to get Florida to overlook us and the best way for that is UT getting smacked

    Open debate: does the coach who loses this game still have a job at the end of the season? Neither fanbase is thrilled with their coach

      It depends on how they finish the season but a loss will put them on a hotter seat. So Yes

    I don’t want Florida coming off a loss

    I think for SEC East contention, TN beating FL gives us the best overall chance. However, the poll’s wording is horrible! Do you have any idea how hard it was to click on a choice that said *gag* *gag*…I can’t even type it?

    There is no way I can ever cheer for Tennessee. But there is also no chance I can cheer for Florida either. So i’m really at a loss on this one. I just hope we can beat both!

    I’m leaning toward cheering against UF (I can’t cheer FOR either team, but one of them has to lose), just because I prefer how a UF loss sets us up in the East.

    If I had a gun with 2 bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden and a UT fan, I would shoot the UT fan twice.

    I’d love to see Florida 0-3
