Breaking down the Florida Gators and SEC Championship Game

The Florida Gators came up short in the SEC Championship game, falling 29-15 to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Despite coming in second in the SEC the fans, Jim McElwain and the Florida football program have a lot to be proud about.

This was a team who was under .500 in the SEC the last two seasons, was picked to finish fifth in the SEC and a team that was supposed to be rebuilding this season. Rather than rebuild, McElwain showed that Florida may not be as far off from “restoring the order” in the SEC.

Andrew Spivey and Nick de la Torre break down the game, what went right and wrong for the Florida Gators and talk about where the program is heading as they ready for Michigan and the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

(We will post the transcript of the podcast as soon as it is available)

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
