Happy New Year, and There's Always Next Year...

So the Florida Gators began the new year on a disappointing note. Despite an honest effort from Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and star receiver Percy Harvin, the Gators lost to the Michigan Wolverines, 41-35, in the Capital One Bowl. Two things made the Gators' loss easier to swallow. First, it was nice to see Lloyd Carr end his 28-year coaching career at Michigan with a bowl victory. Second, my dad was pulling for Michigan, and he was thrilled (and shocked) to see the Wolverines win.

In honor of my New Year's resolution to be more optimistic, I have decided not to dwell on this loss and instead to look ahead to the Gators' 2008 season. With Tebow and Harvin returning, the Gators will be tough to beat.
