    Thanks Nolagator-

    I like where we are on the list. I still think we have a good chance of going into Jax with zero losses! Look at the schedule. It really isn't that tough. All the teams we play on this list are rated worse than us, the other teams are the out of conference teams which (I hope) don't offer much challenge.

    As long as we improve and Stay Healthy!

    Go Gators.

    Everything will depend on the offensive line not being offensive.

    Mississippi State is rated above us and it's a road game.

    We got rid of the most "offensive" person in our program!

    Saying that an SEC team will be undefeated in November appears overly optimistic to me. The SEC road is loaded with pitfalls due to the quality of competition.

    14/1 appears about right for the Gators, however at 2/3 and 3/1, both Alabama and Georgia are bad bets. Professionals tend to prefer favorites, and for good reason, they win a lot more frequently than non-favorites. When you are expecting to collect on every 2 to 4 bets, you can bet a far larger percentage of your betting pool on each bet than when you are expecting to collect only on say 1 of 10 bets or less. At those odds, runs of losses can easily get to 20 or 30, and sometimes even more between wins.
