Well folks here we are the final poll. After the votes are in, we will be one scant week from kicking off the football season. This little exercise has really brought out some deep feelings and hopefully has been an appropriate way to build our minds up for the kickoff in 2 weeks. We have seen the Florida Gators live up to their billing as one of the most hated teams in Dawg Nation (Texas managed a whopping 4% of the vote in week 2, the boys of Troy got absolutely ZERO votes and Tennesse made a valiant stand but could only gather 6% in week 4). Florida has definitely put on a dominating show but could it be due to the fact that they did not really play anyone, having one of the weakest schedules to the final game in the bracket? Meanwhile their opponent has had a little tougher challenge to make it to the final week. (LSU got 11% in week 2, South Carolina managed 26% and it was a nail biter in week 4 as Auburn pulled of a close contest against Georgia Tech 56%-44% - TKK your cardiologist called and can see you on today). Given the results I think we can safely say that we have identified the three most hated teams in Dawg Nation; Florida and Auburn battling for the top spot and Georgia Tech a close third. So now lets let the final begin. The Swamp Lizards versus the Tabby Cats of the Plains.
What more can be said after airing my hatred for these two teams over the past 3 weeks. We all knew that the final would come out to be a match between Florida and Auburn. I could have saved 4 or 5 thousand words and just posted one poll, IT HAD TO BE A FLORIDA/AUBURN FINAL. I mean even we argue over which week is the true HATE WEEK in the fall. We have Editors calling out Managers. The mere idea of who is the most hated in Dawg Nation almost brings us to in fighting between ourselves. That is fine high quality for two teams that deserve much more. Are we doing one of these two teams a disservice by even deciding who we hate more? I do not think so. So without further ado, Vote Away. If you hate burns you like 10,000 Suns or you really like your truck; Be Counted. To make this a little more fun, share your reason(s) or your best hate story below.
