I've heard a lot of people mistake choking in sports for outright losing the game. I've always wondered what other sports fans thought about the term "Choking," I heard a guy on the radio describe choking as this: "Choking is when you get to get the big game and you stop doing the things you did that got you there." When you look at this past BCS bowl season. Only one team choked and that was the Florida Gators. NIU went out there and did what they did and got beat by a better Florida State team. ND went out there and did what they did every day this season and got outclassed by better athletes who didn't make mistakes and miss tackles. Missing tackles is one thing and ND certainly missed plenty... but giving up on the superior arm of your football team.. such as the Florida Gators symbolically giving up on their defense when they were Onside Kicking the ball down 30 to 10 versus the Big East conference champion is the epitome of a choke job. The defense is what got Florida to the Sugar Bowl and an SEC defense got decimated by competition that will actually play in the NFL. Florida panicked. Florida hadn't faced a legitimate QB and 4 WRs that will start on Sundays their whole season which is why the SEC is severely overrated. Please show me which QB and at least 2 WRs that will actually start the first year they are drafted in the NFL. So Florida, a team built on running the ball, came out passing on the first 5 of 7 plays of the game. Running the ball got them to the Sugar Bowl and they gave it up once they got on the big stage toi try gadget plays such as fake field goals/wildcat formations/onside kickoffs down 20 points. If I've learned anything from this years BCS. I've learned what is a choke job and what isn't. The Florida Gators choked bro. What do you think choking in sports is?
