No surprise. Paul Finebaum has never been a fan of the Gators.
TV affiliates Florida @ Mizzou
CFN predicting 26-23, Mizzou.
It's hard these days, our own fans aren't fans of the Gators!!
I think this is the furthest north the Gators have played a game since WWII. In those games, I think the results were about 50/50, W/L in cold weather. Hopefully it's not an issue.
I personally loved it. I pitched in high school in Brevard County. Never thought anything of the heat until I played college in TN. I felt like I could pitch two games in a row without being gassed. The cool weather def doesn't take as much out of you.
i could see it if franklin was playing. 13 games in a row holding sec opponents under 20. i think it will go to 14. i know mizzou fans are high on their backup qb but i don't think its a good recipe against our gators. i think it will look more like what happened when tennessee used peterman against us. huge mistake, i don't see a qb making his first start against this defense having success. especially with muschamp and durkin, great defensive minds, they are going to confuse this kid and take advantage of him. we have to score points!! were going to need 21-28 to win!
Oh good grief...are you listening to Finebaum again? Please take 2 aspirin and then smash your radio!
Mizzou's offense will be a lot more limited with their back-up QB in for the injured Franklin, and I think we can move the ball effectively against the Tiger D if we can just stay balanced on offense and don't turn the ball over.
Watch for them to game-plan a lot like Miami did against us and focus on stacking the LOS against our run-game and hope we commit turnovers that help them.
Magic number in this game is 14 points IMO.
Wow, not a top 25 team?! I would hope PAWWWWWWL meant purely based on injuries.
We played at Syracuse in 91.
Of course it was inside so the temperature was fine... the outcome... not so much.
I just have "that" feeling we're going to get 5 td's on offense this week or atleast break 30 on offensive points. Like you all have mentioned in rewatching the game, the plays have been there but just the execution has been lacking. I say 30-14 Florida
For the record I did not listen to him purposely.....he happened to do a quick TV segment on one of the CF shows (ESPN or CBSSports).
I don't give him any credibility. He's going to eat his words - and it won't be the first time! :grin:
Prediction time. I'm 5-1 on the season, with W's against Toledo, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, and LSU. I missed the Miami game, though I did think we would have a hard time against them. Anyway:
I think the WR's come up big on Saturday. In fact, I almost believe that we'll have a big scoring day. I'm just not sure that Muschamp will want to go for the throat if we get up ten points, so I'm guessing we won't have many 4th Q points. Missouri will score on us, but not easily. I think if they have Franklin this game is a lot closer. My guess is that their Freshman QB will make some mistakes.
I think if we lose this game, there will be some major changes in the offensive philosophy. I'm not sure the coaches are willing to dive off of the deep end and change everything, especially given that no matter what happens on Saturday, we'll still be in the hunt for an SEC Championship Game -- as long as Missouri loses to USCe and Texas A&M. Regardless, I think we see some minor changes on Saturday. More running around the edges with Taylor, more read option, a few more end arounds and first down passes, and a lot more of our freshman WR's.
Not making any predictions.
I really think this game will tell us what direction we are going.
Last week (IMHO) we had the tables turned on us. I think we had a failed game strategy.
I feel we are the better team this Saturday - and thus we should win.
If we lose - because of failed strategy (again) it will tell us where we are going (nowhere).
Sorry to be so glib. It is what it is. lain:
I think the outcome of Saturday's game doesn't mean a whole lot in regards to the future of the program. What's going to be more important is to see whether or not Pease and Champ attempt to adapt with the offense they have. If they don't, that's probably a good indicator that they are more adamant about proving their style is "right" rather than giving the team the best opportunity for growth.
Can someone explain how ESPN3 works? I have Directv, but do not live in an area that offers the affiliate network. Isn't there some kind of cable tie-in to ESPN3?
With all due respect - your comments prove my point.
If Pease and Muschamp are at odds with strategy - the offense is doomed to fail.
Ah you're right. I misread your post originally. Then yeah, we agree. If we come in with another bad gameplan, that won't bode well for the future at all.
