    Given Vegas is in the business of money you should realize they are the ultimate realists. They know the strength if this team, especially because they understand every other team too.


    So in others all the bad thing the "realists" are thinking are already factored into the spread. The fact we have a great defense and a bad offense is factored in already.


    As a realist the line is about right. The problem is the line is that low. A Top 5 team nearly hung 60 on 3 quarters and basically beat them by infinity and we are only favored by 15.5-18? That means we have a long ways to go

    I don't see how anyone can predict a blowout. I think we will win, but we haven't blown anyone out in a while.

    UT was threatening last year because of its passing game, but those pieces are all gone, and UT will have to run the ball to have any success. I predict they'll break one or two good runs but mostly get stuffed and rely on their punter.

    I think we'll cut way down on the turnovers in this game, but not the penalties, because those just seem baked in to some of our guys. I am doubtful we will find more success in the red zone, however, and we will need to rely on explosive plays to get us any TDs. Hardin better be ready. His number will get called 4-5 times.

    Gators 19-6.

    I say we cover . . . but only because the D scores two TD.

    I saw a poll on Volnation that asked if the Florida defense would outscore the Tennessee offense. I think the results were around 50/50.

    This is why I don't gamble...especially on my own team. I bet there were a lot of people around the nation who could care less if UF gets a "W"...just pissed with the later play calling that probably cost them quite a bit if they took the Gators!

    The dreaded Backdoor Covet reared its ugly head yesterday.
