    They are far more balanced, and Saban does a great job rotating running backs.

    Bama had two 100 yard rushers.

    Not very similar honesty

    Your second sentence is a fact, Matt, but looking at the stats, I can't agree with your conclusion. Whether we are similar to Alabama is another question, but those stats should be considered similar by any measure, including run/pass balance.

    Sure, but 156/246/402 vs 180/254/434 seems pretty similar to me. We got there with less passes, but we arrived at basically the same place.

    We were very efficient vs UK ...

    UF scored 24 points on 7 possessions with no punts.

    Bama scored 23 points on 12 possessions with 5 punts.

    But again, Ole Miss is MUCH better than UK. UK lost to WKU! Let's not forget that little tidbit.

    UK is terrible. Bama is no. 1. We have not shown we are a top 10 team.

    The differences:

    Ole Miss is pretty good; UK sucks.

    We were on the road; Bama was at home.

    I think the point of the OP is that UF and Bama have a similar coaching philosophy. Both teams were in a position to run up the score but chose to control the clock. Muschamp is getting a lot of criticism on this board for letting off on the gas. I don't know that it's warranted. I wonder what they're saying on the Bama boards.

    Strange, fair point but

    1. Saban has a bit more rope given his history
    2. UF fans became crazy under an offensive guru and won't be satisfied without a similar type coach. For UF, it is about winning but also winning with style. Bama has always had a mediocre offense dating back to day 1. Brodie Croyle if I am not mistaken was their career passing leader at one point (might still be for all I know).

    Fine but that isn't enough to convince all parts of the fan base to get upset at a mere 24 points. The point is Bama fans historically aren't used to dynamic offenses so a 24 point, 400 yard day is a good day in Tuscaloosa. In Gainesville, people are bored. Expectations and baselines are different.

    When Tyler threw that INT, the coaches pull back the reins on him. One split second decision and the score is 21-14 and the game changes at that point. They decided the best idea is to keep the ball away from Kentucky.
