Tuesday 'tube: Florida week needs no catchy titles

It seems like we were just doing this a few months ago, but here we are again with another edition of "Florida Week youtube," preparing to welcome the Gators to Bryant-Denny Stadium.
For two programs that consider each other rivals, Alabama and Florida don't have much of a history when it comes to regular-season meetings. In fact, we played Florida exactly four times during the regular season in the 1990s: 1990-91 and 1998-99. Florida won three of those. The fourth, of course, was the most memorable.

Florida didn't come back to Tuscaloosa again until 2005, Urban Meyer's first season in Gainesville, and his only trip to Tuscaloosa (until, obviously, this Saturday). As it turned out, an ambush awaited them.

So Meyer's memories of Tuscaloosa aren't so positive. And also, while we're here, we might as well just re-visit last year's showdown in Atlanta ... ya know, just because.

Regardless of what happens Saturday, remember to savor the moment. Florida won't be back for a while. Roll Tide.
