You have the Florida and Auburn game mixed up. They go to Auburn first, then come to Florida.
I counted. Florida made 5 appearances in that video. Five. Tennessee had 32. I realize Florida was bad last year, but the defense was top 5 nationally, and Florida beat Tennessee. Come on, guys.
Too many losses there. You're the first writer to hone in on that point without blithely picking them to win the division. Yes, Gurley and Marshall are GREAT, but Mason is unproven, and the secondary is incredibly depleted. Not to mention, special teams is a bit of a concern for UGA as well. I think (and I say this as a Gators fan) Carolina wins the division, Florida comes in second, and UGA third.
Campbell would change the game, offensively for Florida.
Georgia will host Clemson. Nice to see Ole Miss will be playing in the Georgia Dome for the first time.
Ok, now looking back---since neither of these things happened, what's Muschamp's watershed threshold to stay employed this year, do you think?
Driskel isn't bad---he's really not. I think if you make Jeff Driskel a multi-threat QB, namely by having a good corps of WR's who can catch the ball down-field (something I hope we develop if we don't lose Joker to Texas), have a good crop of running backs (which I think we have in Taylor and Jones---if he can stay healthy) to run the ball in key situations, and simply let (pardon the turn-of-phrase) Driskel be Driskel, we'll be fine. He's obviously got the talent with his legs (he proved that at Vandy in 2012 and at FSU in 2012). Honestly, he just needs some tutelage in accurately reading a defensive screen of the opponent, making *accurate* decisions on the fly to adjust to those defensive plays (unlike he did at Miami in 2013), and find a good receiver down field (something he really hasn't had time to build a relationship with, either due to graduation, early departures, changing OC's, or injuries). The raw talent is there, that's been proven. It's smoothing out the edges, which I think (or at least sincerely hope) Roper can do. All in all, I think his having two years left due to a medical redshirt from last season, means we can red shirt Will Grier (who has a completely different skill set) and give him more time to adjust in Roper's system.
How do you think the Florida offense bounces back next season, Jon?
SEC is (287-139-10) against ACC Average score: SEC 23.3 - ACC 16.5 In bowl games: SEC is (36-19) against ACC http://mcubed.net/ncaaf/tvc/sec/acc.shtml
Jon, any chance Florida goes to the Music City or Gator Bowl? Do you think Will Muschamp will still be coaching if they do end up at Legion Field?
Sure enough do. Every team has a loss like that. Georgia to UCF in 2010, LSU to Alabama in the NCG, Alabama to A&M last year, Carolina to FSU in the Chick Fil A Bowl a few years ago, Auburn in...well, every game last year, Mizzou in...well, every game last year...you get my point...we lost, but everybody does, either in a humiliating or close fashion. Move on and move up; that's my motto.
A win is a win is a win. I could give a rat's behind as a Florida fan as to how we get there, as long as we do. The LSU game should say more about where we are as a program, but I am more interested to see which Florida shows up against Georgia down in Jacksonville. Our defense versus their offense should...key word, should...be a battle for the ages.
