    When was the last time UF was a double digit dog at home?

    Right now, we'd be extremely lucky to keep it that close.

    If we are healthy on D, we may be able to keep it close. But I have no reason to believe our OL can block anything right now. I think our best chance to win going forward is to run KT all game every game.

    I know what you are doing. You are acting like UF has no chance to win to make the Noles over confident. You are trying to affect Karma by acting like the Noles are unbeatable. They aren't. They are very beatable. You are trying to dampen expectations, that is smart, but don't believe for one second UF isn't going to gives the Noles more than they can handle next month. It is always a war.

    Unacceptable. Surprised some are ok with stuff like this. Maybe some Gator fans really are apathetic. Sad

    If we don't lose the amount of starters and/or their backups we have this season, maybe I am completely pissed about being that big of a dog... But this year, it just takes a little common sense to see the real cause for the problems we have.

    That's too high, a product of coming fresh off a disappointing loss for us and a big win for them. They should only be favored by 8 or 9 points at this stage...

    If we play like we have the past two weeks and they play like they have all season, we will be lucky to stay within 4 touchdowns

    Excuses = we lost because of Refs
    Reality = we lost a ton of starters to injury

    I'm sorry that you can't distinguish between the two. This isn't NCAA 14. This is reality and it actually hurts to lose important starters and more importantly, depth at the line of scrimmage.

    But please, don't let me get in the way of your irrational hissy fit.

    So true but watching FSU and UF anyone can tell that these two teams are on completely different levels. FSU is in a great spot. There offense is balanced yet explosive and while it may not be as good as it has been it is still a really good defense just look how they shut down Clemson. And they have the edge in special teams, I don't think the kicker has missed all season yet. You have to just acknowledge who the better team is and this year that clearly is FSU....tears

    And yet, we still find a way to beat them. Beating them when we aren't expected to is a tradition at UF.

    It is a rivalry game, therefore point spreads, favorites, etc, are tossed out.

    fsu should win easily, but i'll stay away from that action because fla may be a late junk TD somehow to beat the spread.

    Unless we are completely healthy on D (minus Easley), I would seriously take FSU with 20 points. We have to play suffocating defense (which we can do when healthy) to keep it close.

    How are we going to put any pressure on Winston? We couldn't do it against Zitburger, we couldn't do it against Mock (us), how are we suddenly going to do it against Winston so that he doesn't go 25 for 25?

    A late junk TD would probably hurt our TOP stats so Champ won't let that happen.
