Todd Grantham shades Tennessee when discussing Florida’s prep for Kentucky
Florida is coming off a 38-14 win over Tennessee in the Swamp. The No. 10 Gators turn their attention to Kentucky, who they’ll meet in Lexington on Saturday.
Two players in particular that the Gators’ defense will need to pay close attention to are running back Chris Rodriguez and wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson. Rodriguez’s 520 rushing yards through 4 games is best in the SEC, while Robinson is atop the league in receiving yards with 402.
Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will no doubt spend a little extra time drawing up schemes to stop those players, but during the team’s media availability on Monday, he may have thrown some shade toward the Volunteers when discussing preparation for the Wildcats.
“It’s a much more difficult challenge than, say, last week,” Grantham quipped.
That could certainly qualify as some bulletin board material for Robinson, Rodriguez, and the rest of the Wildcats team. They’ll have their work cut out for them, though, as the Gators will be a big road favorite at Kroger Field. While Kentucky beat Florida in 2018, it was its first win in the series since 1986.
