Let’s see how Florida looks against ‘Bama this week. I hope for a gritty game with lots of hard hitting that wears down the Gators emotionally and physically just in time for their game versus us the next week.
This is setting up to be Heup’s signature win. Let’s explore this week and next week to prep us for uf.
This week: Richardson tweaked a hamstring, meaning Emory Jones is probably the guy we will face. That is good news for us. Richardson is Cam Jr. On our side, Milton got hurt, opening the door for Hooker to come in and hopefully this means he will get the start against TTU and be prepped for UF. The qb situation has worked completely in our favor.
Next week: UF gets bama and is gonna get beat up. We get an easy W where we rest and work out some kinks. The week before the game works totally in our favor as well. They are gonna limp into Neyland at night and we are gonna be fresh and ready. Heup is gonna have the team ready and Neyland is gonna be rockin’.
It sets up perfectly for a big upset. This team is different from the last couple of years. I know it sounds crazy following the loss to Pitt, but I’m calling it here! While we have a talent disadvantage, everything else is working in our favor.
I think some of you have it all wrong. In 2004 uga beat Saban-led defending national champions LSU by a score of 45-16. It was a blowout that gave uga a big head. The following week the Volunteers went down to Athens and upset the dwags 19-14.
If florida loses big to bama they'll be better focused and prepared for UT. Given the talent differential that doesn't bode well for the vols so I really think florida-bama can help UT's chances the next week, but by florida winning not losing.
I really hope UT finds a way to give the gators a good hard fought game all the way till the end. I’m just so used to UT finding new ways to lose (especially to Florida) that I can’t/won’t get my hopes up.
