Teez Tabor said that his Florida Gators were the more talented team than Michigan last year, despite the 41-7 Citrus Bowl loss to the Wolverines. UM's Chris Wormley doesn't want to hear it.
On Friday, when asked about having a better end to the season than last year, Tabor went into a pretty strange diatribe about how he didn't think Michigan was as good as Florida, but were well-coached.

While weird things happen in college football every weekend, It is pretty hard to argue a team is "much better" than the one it lost 41-7 to on a neutral field. Michigan defensive end Chris Wormley agrees.
This post-season, Florida looks to pick up a win against a different Big Ten program, Iowa, in the January 2 Outback Bowl in Tampa. In an interesting twist, the Gators will likely be rooting for the Wolverines, as Michigan faces Florida rival Florida State in the Orange Bowl in Miami on December 30.
