After defeating Georgia yesterday, Florida coach Urban Meyer said he was impressed with the 2004 Auburn team that went undefeated. Here's more from John Patton at the Gainesville Sun...
JACKSONVILLE- Urban Meyer knows what it's like to finish a season perfect, having finished 12-0 last year at Utah. He's not sure if it's realistic to think you can do so at his current location, saying it's near impossible with the talent and depth of the Southeastern Conference.
After Florida knocked Georgia from the ranks of the unbeatens Saturday, Meyer praised the 13-0 Auburn team of 2004, saying, "To think Auburn didn't play for No. 1. ... I can't imagine that."
He then added about the SEC's only remaining club without a loss: "With all due respect to Alabama - they put it to us (in a 31-3 win Oct. 1) - but I think it's too hard to go undefeated in this conference."
