    Gamblers, jump on this number now!! We will cover this easily and I have a feeling the line will settle at about 18.5.

    Vegas must not know about our plan to win the game by 1 point.

    That sounds about right. My guess was a two-touchdown win for the Gators, with the game not really being quite as close as the score will indicate. We can likely count on some inconsistency inside the twenty when it's time to actually score, and that will prevent the blowout many Gators will be expecting come Saturday.

    But Tennessee will go nowhere offensively. I guarantee the staff has got somethin for Worley and the rest of the Vol attack.

    As for how big the margin gets, it will be interesting to see if Jones gambles at all to try and win this game.

    Yesterday, I don't believe they ever went for it on fourth and short and punted every time.

    I remember what Kiffin did in 2009 when he played to keep the margin of defeat down and really didn't try to win the game at all.

    I'll take a win, but hopefully it's a blow out. I want a statement game by muschamp/Pease. Something like 35-10. If this ends up being close to the end, which I don't see happening, it could get ugly on here. Lol

    No kidding, Muschamp needs a blowout win badly. Would not be pretty if we were to lose or even had a close game after Tennessee was railroaded by Oregon.

    I see us being up by 21 in the 4th with our backups and them getting a cheap late score to cover.

    Run the ball, eat clock, play D -- but they may not cover 15.5

    This is how I was thinking they'd play the game too, and not cover 15.5 with a W. But, they have the power to make it a blowout...hence my indecision on the opening line.

    Yep we might score 16, which means we need to shut them out. After all we might be a fourth as good as Oregon, right?

    Do you seriously think our offense could go toe to toe with Oregon's offense if both teams had to play Tennessee's "defense?" Really?

    We might score 16 or we might score 32, who knows ... I was making a joke about the O/U and spread being 15.5.

    I can't say I really give a damn about Oregon or how we compare to them and I don't believe in the transitive property of football scores.
