I think this one's a toss up and I could even see it getting lopsided for either team. We know UF has a good offense, UGA has a power run game but little else, and UGA has a great defense, primarily stopping the run. If UGA can string together a few stops, they might be able to run it down our throats while controlling the clock and keeping the ball away from the Gator offense. On the other hand, if UF can stack the box and get off the field on 3rd down on D, we might be able to get a lot of possessions and pull ahead with our passing attack, similar to what Bama was able to do. A couple gifts from the "mail man" wouldn't hurt either. Not sure what to expect but excited to find out. Go Gators!
I watched the video & thought it was pretty hilarious that he held the plastic red light saber for the entire 16 minute session Definitely not related to the brawl, likely a bit of a troll job on the media if anything. I mean it was 11pm - he's not going trick or treating with his kids after the game.
Exactly. As frequently as we see guys decommit, a commitment a year and a half in advance doesn't mean much more than we're simply his first choice at this point. We will see though, certainly seems like recruiting is heading in the right direction
This running total positives by month is such a weird way to report it. If it was 31 last week and 37 now (call it as of yesterday's test), I guess that means 6 guys presumably have it now?
@ Investi-gator , he's making a pretty clever joke about how GA has repeatedly failed to close out games in the 4th quarter against Alablama despite going into the 2nd half with the lead
I just hope this doesn't turn into some sick game of chicken between the two schools as they decide whether or not to play on Saturday
Ughhh I'm getting flashbacks of shark photos and made up death threats. Maybe a program going about ~3 years without being the butt of a joke isn't bad?
so with a quarantine period of 14 days likely impacting multiple position groups after 5 positives, and it takes a few days to even turn around a test, seems doubtful that we're playing on Saturday
Florida -13 means we have to stop them at least twice: no brainer take LSU with the points here
I wonder what happens in the LSU game next week after this and their showing against Mizzou. winning score in the 80s?
I know each individual person should make their own decisions for their personal safety, but I still think this is a pretty bad look for Mullen coming off this loss. I don't think a HC should say anything other than "the safety of our players, students, fans, and staff should always be our priority". Just leave the attendance policy to the university/league/whichever other decision-making body
I hope I'm wrong but I'm more nervous about this A&M game than it seems most are. They're a pretty experienced group and Jimbo is a good coach. To take them lightly because they 1) looked poor in their first game (which they still won btw) and 2) got smoked by alabama (also pretty understandable) seems foolish. We're still going on the road against a decent team that needs a win in the worst way. To get the W I think the Offense will need to be sharp and avoid mistakes, and the defense needs to play a lot better than they have the first two games.
rat poison. enough hype let's just play some games
Didn't see anything on Lorenzo Lingard not playing. Otherwise no surprises / looks solid
Man if the O line can perform and stay relatively healthy our offense is stacked this year
interesting to think about. They are both public schools in the same state, so who's to stop them if they have the governor's blessing to use the resources to get one of the teams on a bus, arrange the staff/cops/everything else and go play. now of course the game wouldn't "count" without being part of the league's and NCAA's schedule and the leagues probably control the TV rights as well so probably not worth it in the end
"I think we have about 8 guys considering it, and 2-3 that could get serious about it." kind of a weird thing to say publicly. Not sure how I'd feel if i was one of those guys
Yep agreed. We still have a talent gap to close, but Mullen has done a good job getting the team to give consistent solid effort from week to week, which was not always the case under Muschamp or the sharkhumper. And the reward is that we've beaten the teams we're supposed to beat and competed in the games against good teams, with a few good wins to show for it. Hopefully we can keep things rolling in the right direction
I'm super happy with Mullen through this point in year 2, but this "couple plays away" fallacy is getting out of hand. Sure we were a handful of plays away in the LSU and Georgia games, but also a couple plays away from losing to UK and Miami. Can't only look at it in one direction. Yes we're not terribly far from 10-0, but we're also not that far from 6-4 either.
first, agree that it didn't affect the outcome. But is the consensus that it was really obvious? I was pretty sure the ball moved when the tip hit the ground but to me it was still debatable whether he had a grip on it all the way through
yeah let's not fall into blaming the refs. We had 2 chances to get off the field on defense on most of GA's drives on 3rd down - either with the rushers getting home, or the secondary locking down. Neither happened, so we lost. Credit to the dawgs O line and Fromm for doing what it took to win.
Agree it was GA's 3rd downs that really decided it. To a degree UF's game plan worked by keeping GA in 3rd and medium to 3rd and long most of the game, but props to the dawgs for converting anyway. Basically we had 2 chances on each play to get off the field- our secondary holds or the pass rush gets to From. But all the credit to the Georgia offensive line plus Jake Fromm and the recievers for simply beating us on 3rd down
Come on let’s not play the excuses game. We lost because we were one-dimensional on offense and couldn’t get off the field on defense, not because of the refs. I love Trask’s quote from after the LSU loss- you can lose and start pointing fingers or you can lose and come together. Let’s finish strong Go Gators
cool coach pun username lol. Yep not much to take from this one. Pretty BS free- no turnovers, not many penalties on either side, no calls that affected the outcome. We simply lined up and got beat by the better team tonight. But if we can keep focused and finish 10-2 I'd still say that's a successful season. Go Gators!
Guys chill out! this type of thing is what makes the SEC and college football in general so fun and exciting! Anybody can beat anybody in a give week. As they say there's a reason we play the games, and I'm sure glad we do
If Florida was able to move the ball adequately against Auburn, LSU should have no trouble
Looking at the remaining games I wouldn't be at all surprised if Missouri wins the east. With UF and GA with a conference loss already, if Mizz beats just one of those two, they'll likely go to Atlanta since they'll have head-to-head over the team they beat, and we still have Mizz and GA, and GA has us, Mizz, and Auburn.
Pretty cool stat about last 7 UF LSU meetings being all within a touchdown and overall tied at 134 a piece
nevermind. obviously they are different sets of games so of course its possible. embarrassing
