    In fairness, you guys do have all the trappings of suck.


    Tough to watch this and think you've got a game one up and comer when you realize that D is losing key pieces, and your QB is a guy who couldn't unseat either of those stiffs. Evidence is what it is.

    Imho their O is so young and so bad I honestly don't think they'll be able to score on our D. Their scores are going to HAVE to be scored by their D or special teams. On their board one of their posters put up a board of % of returning starters and not even counting LP we're at 96% of returning starters for this opener. That's 96% that's battle tested, that's 96% that knows the expectations of this game. I'm not making a score prediction, but if we score 1st, it's a blowout by halftime. Especially if we get a quick O TD, or a D TD!

    Let's look at some comparable opponents 1st!

    LSU - blew yalls doors off game #1, lost to UF!

    cesspool u - their worst team in 4 decades lost to y'all on the ROAD by 1pt, FL destroyed them in THEIR house.

    Wisky/Mish - Michigan curb stomped Wisky, Wisky curb stomped y'all, we curb stomped Michigan!

    How much does that add to UF/um? Not much, but it's samples sizes that make a great math equation that does NOT add up much in the way of a um victory. ESPECIALLY given the fact you have a rookie HC, rookie QB, a TERRIBLE OL, and no proven DB's against a unit that clicked intro place the last 4 games they played together.

    Its CFB so Miami of course has a chance to win the game, but the odds are stacked entirely against y'all.

    Love the enthusiasm in this thread but I'm not expecting a blow out. This one is gonna be close and nasty.

    21-17 UF

    Respectfully disagree about the close part. I do agree that it will absolutely get nasty - until UF begins to impose its will by mid-way through the second quarter. Like some others, I see a second half blowout as a distinct possibility. However, all will, of course, be revealed in the fullness of time.

    About the game: I clearly remember Gator great Fred Abbott saying he was "Sitting on G just waiting for O," at the top of the first game broadcast in 1979. I still feel much the same excitement now that he and I felt then - while never forgetting how hard it is to recover from years of adversity. We are well along the way back to prominence - UM is still trying to get started.

    Saturday will be a challenge for different reasons for both teams. UF must display the progress that is to be expected by a team in its second year in a new set of schemes and systems. A failure to materialize that progress in a reasonably polished and efficient manner will portend badly. But it will be much, much tougher for the cattle egrets - UF is just more talented and more proven in several crucial areas. I see a strong start with some notable glitches, but not enough to throw this game in serious doubt late.

    Although some thing the game might be close......

    That would be at the half, of maybe into the 3rd quarter.... BUT.....

    Then, savage's conditioning pulld through, and the Gators thoughoughly gas the Canes late in the game, and pull away to eaasily cover that spread..

    As I said before.....

    I kind of feel a reverse 2002 vibe. 2nd year coach vs. first time former assistant. Early in the season. Except then it was Grossman vs. Dorsey. To make this matchup work for 2002 comparison it would be Ingle Martin vs. Dorsey.

    Early rust gets shaken off, SCUM gets one lucky TD on a thin back end.

    However, if we get rolling quick and keep the ball for long drives the first two possessions it gets ugly.
