The only correct answer for us is to change a game that would either give Fulmer another shot at a NC/prolonged relevance or give Heupel an extra win from last year. Everything else is either too far in the past to really matter (outside of pure enjoyment in the moment) or would have helped a failed coach stick around a little longer.

Although I guess it's fair to gift some of our failed coaches with an extra win if those wins damaged our opponents in the process.

As a Gator fan, hard to think of a game that dearly cost Florida that people really hang their hat on.

No Gator fan is going to say the Fiesta Bowl vs. Nebraska because Florida got manhandled. The idea of a do-over causes PTSD.

The 4th and dumb game against Georgia cost Florida an SEC title in 1976. Steve Spurrier would certainly like a do-over against Georgia in 1966.

One game I'd personally like to have back is the Sugar Bowl loss to Notre Dame after the 1991 season.
Maybe not but losing to Butch Jones has to sting a little. All the times Tennessee had to watch him smoke a cigar pretending to be important at Alabama was enough for me.

The only Tennessee loss that truly stings is 2001. Like Lawrence mentioned about 2009 and the SEC title game, if Florida beats Tennessee......they don't have (IMO) the issue of beating LSU in the SEC title game and they go to the Rose Bowl. Technically, one could argue that the 1998 loss cost them as well, but most Gator fans don't really contemplate that one

I think Miami would have killed them, but I would have loved to go to the Rose Bowl and had a friend I was prepared to crash with who lived in LA at the time.

2016 isn't even on the radar. I actually chuckle that we actually had a 21-3 lead in that game with Austin Appleby starting at QB.

That DVD was nowhere near as bad as "2001: A Big Orange Odyssey." I'm kind of embarrassed to watch that - the ending is sooooo bad.
“This Tennessee team had plenty of chances to fail, but chose to succeed. It was a big orange odyssey, that led then volunteers to another championship.” Um, what championship was that????

No idea. An SEC East "championship" maybe? There are all sorts of references to "Atlanta" and "Rose Bowl" as well in the video, but then it just ends. lol

When you watch that reception they got when they arrived back in Knox after the UF game, it's no wonder why they lost next week.
