I called the Miami game a toss-up in my thread about our schedule prior to the season.. I was told I was wrong and our Gators would cruise to victory against a terrible Cane defense. Having grown up in Coral Gables and perhaps following UM more closely that most everyone here I knew they would be trouble. I believed the Gators would win by wearing them down but that it would be hard fought. At the end of the day that defense that was ridiculed here forced five turnovers mostly in the red zone and was the difference handing us the loss. I'm now very optimistic about the rest of our season for a number of reasons. 1) Murphy at QB will make it harder for opponents to stop us in the red zone with his elusiveness. 2) Mack Brown is proving to be a durable, steady and sure handed workhorse at running back. 3) Patton, Dunbar and Burton are stepping up their games and are turning into reliable receiving threats. 4) Our defense has exceeded expectations and barring injuries could be the best in the country. 5) We are or were leading the nation in time of possession and I believe that will continue! Our team should gain confidence as the season goes on making us a team to be reckoned with.
