    LOL....please do.....stack the box with 8 or 9 and see what the score ends up!! Your talking about a team that is averaging 291 through the air.....and you want to stack the box?? I would take that bet anyday.

    If any team in this matchup has a chance to be balanced it's us with the way LSU is on Defense. That is FACT!

    I agree no arguments here. I am just trying to say that I do not see Florida "shutting down" Lsu's offense. They may hold lsu below there average, but i do not expect to see lsu with under 300 yards of total offense.

    I don't think we need to hold you to under 300 yards, but keep in mind a huge part of our success is based on time of possession. It is difficult for any team to get a lot of yards because of how much clock we eat.

    That becomes easier against a swiss cheese defense such as LSU's.

    That said, a more prolific offense than LSU's was held to 212 yards. It's not out of the realm of possibility.

    Stats are what they are! Putting a set of nuts on your sister doesn't make her your brother.

    Do they rotate him out because he can't handle the work load?

    Not to mention he put those stats up against pretty weak run defenses, when he gets shut down due to "real defense syndrome" you can rethink why he is 4th not first in the SEC!

    I think the X-Factor in the game may come down to this play: Murphy and the read-option. I think we'll show it much more this game on any down/distance. This will loosen the LSU D up even more and could be a huge factor in moving chains, UF keeping the ball, redzone, keeping LSU D honest, etc.

    On the flip side, I really like when opposing QB's are not that mobile. Our D knows right where to 'find' them.

    Miami is NOT a more prolific offense than LSU's.....however yopu held them to 212 yards....but still lost.....and I know about the turnovers......but they are part of the game.

    With all the turnovers (not including missing a 4th and 1) and more opportunities for their offense, and we still held their offense to 212 yards. That is pretty remarkable.

    LSU worries me because it is one of the toughest places to play in the country and they obviously have a good team, and we have a relatively inexperienced QB. I am not scared of LSU's RB though. The only RB that worries me some is Todd Gurley. He is a legit threat and was the only rusher to go over 100 yards on the Gators last year.

    Before the Miami game all we heard about was Duke Johnson is a stud and Stephen Morris is a top NFL pick. They were both shut down and now even though they are undefeated, you don't hear much about them. Why? Because of what Florida's defense did to them.

    Florida's defense is legitimate even with the loss of Easley (although his loss does hurt some). As long as Florida does not turn the ball over, this will be a tight, low scoring game.

    I kind of agree. LSU has great talent but they are very young and particularly the secondary gets confused a lot.

    The LSU/UGA game had a LOT of missed assignments by both young secondaries.

    So I tend to agree that there's probably not going to be a lot over double coverage or even man-to-man. It's probably going to be a lot of zone.

    I think our DL and LBs decide the game. If we don't get pressure on ZM he'll pick us apart with their two excellent receivers. Give a good QB and excellent receivers enough time and life becomes very difficult for any secondary.

    It was already sort of mentioned, but Patton won't have to worry about a double coverage. The reason we've been so efficient in the passing game is because we have man to man coverage, and there's rarely a safety over the top. I'm guessing that we'll try and take advantage of that this week.

    We need our secondary to not blow coverage. That is critical. Our defense must be on a mission to make Death Valley quieter than a catholic church service. GO GATORS!

    Statistically speaking, yes they are. Even if you don't include only non-Florida games (wherein Miami averages 68 more yards per game than LSU), they have faced a tougher average defense: #79 for LSU, #32 for Miami. Include UF and Miami's average ypg is .2 yards less than LSU's against an average #25 defense. So same yards against a defense that on average gives up 75 fewer yards per game.

    So yes, statistically, they are more prolific.
