    Scott Carter breaks it down ..

    ...The introduction was impressive.

    And that has nothing to do with former Gators star Errict Rhett's lively go as Mr. Two Bits.

    On a steamy and sticky day at The Swamp, the 2013 Gators wasted few precious drops of sweat Saturday afternoon in showing everyone they came to play despite the absence of several key players for various reasons.

    The Gators had no Matt Jones to hand the ball to, no Jon Halapio to run behind, no Loucheiz Purifoy to lock down receivers and no Antonio Morrison to rattle somebody's teeth. Defensive tackle Damien Jacobs wasn't completely healthy and fellow defensive tackle Darious Cummings was suspended.

    Instead of making excuses, the Gators rushed out of the tunnel and made plays...

    Tim Tebow was Florida's quarterback the last time the Gators scored on their opening drive of the season.

    ...The Gators were missing some key players but they didn't miss a beat.

    That is Muschamp's kind of team.

    "That's why you recruit. That's why you have the deep roster. That's why you recruit guys who don't ask you about the depth chart 400 times," Muschamp said. "You recruit guys that want to come in here and compete. Vernon Hargreaves didn't ask me about the depth chart.”

    But he did make an interception in his college debut. Not a bad way to say hello -- for Hargreaves or the 2013 Gators...

    that has got to be my favorite part of the read. I really was impressed by our boys saturday. They looked a lot better than last time we saw them.

    Wait a minute. The writer thinks we played a good game? Didn't he notice how boring our offense was, how little entertainment we provided for our fans and their wives? Also no mention of how our boring offense kept the attendance down? Clearly Scott Carter knows nothing about football.

    Agree. I was moving during the game and had to check the gamethread to keep up with it ... No gator radio here... And at one point i thought we must be losing.

    Just a reminder...almost any device capable of following the thread, can also stream Mick and Lee broadcasting the game .
