    fla's D should hold lowly Uk to 10-13 points. Fla's offense should light it up for at least 30. That might be some easy money.

    Wasn't Stoops the DC for FSU last year? With a D loaded with NFL players.
    Somehow we scored 37 points on Stoops D.
    Stoops is overrated as a Defensive coach.

    Not exactly. Three of our TDs were on short fields. Also, remember that FSU had five turnovers. They gave the game away...:grin:

    Seriously, you don't judge a coach's abilties on one game. Since Muschamp arrived, he's held Steve Spurrier to under 250 yards of offense and Georgia's high-powered offense to 312 yards per game.

    Say what you will about Boom. He knows defense. His signature is all over this Gator team...

    Despite somehow getting charged with the first 10 penalties of the game, the Gators managed to outgain FSU 394-300 and dominate the line of scrimmage. I know you were kidding, but short fields and turnovers weren't the difference.

    No, but they certainly helped us, just as our mistakes and short fields helped FSU beat us by two TDs in 2011, in spite of gaining only 95 yards of total offense.

    But yes, I was kidding. We beat the Noles soundly last year, but we beat them largely similiar to how we beat USCe, except we actually shut USCe completely down...

    True, we obviously weren't 33 points better than USCe last year. And the 2010 FSU game in Tally was similar. The Gators had five turnovers (to FSU's none) in the horrible, sloppy footing in Doak and lost 31-7, despite doubling the Seminole's yards-per-carry that day.

    I am a big Driskel fan and I also firmly believe he's being wrongly overly-criticized too, but I do agree that he hasn't had his head in the game this year and I think it's because he has never had his position as starting QB threatened and he got complacent. I know Jeff is a lot better than what he's shown so far this year.

    But now, a bizarre turn of events have given Tyler Murphy his chance and I hope Tyler is as good as some of the talking heads (like Lou Holtz), think he is. Somehow though, I think we get a handle on the turnovers Saturday night v.s. UK and are able to get into the UK red zone at least six times.

    I think we can put 38 on the board Saturday night if we don't turn the ball over.
