The Gators still haven't played their best football yet. I suppose there is always a chance that they might not have a breakout this season, but I honestly feel as though they're saving something big for the final stretch. Tebow is more fresh than he has ever been (his own words) and has been making better decisions lately. Any player on the Florida defense can be a game changer.
It will be a great game, but I give the edge to the Gator defense.
To some of you Tebow haters out there... why? Aside from being being covered a bit too much by the media, what could you possibly have against this kid? He epitomizes sportsmanship, leadership, and a passion for the game of football. Terrible qualities right?
The gators come close to losing as well as the tides I believe the team with the most turn overs will loose also look for the team that makes the big plays on both sides of the ball, this game I believe will determin the National Championship! I pick The Crimson Tides defense to good............... the Blue Sun...................
Agreed. If you look at both LSU games, Alabama won by a larger margin than Florida. Every time you turned around someone was hurt, which was not good but funny because they weren't playing any different than they normally do. Possible weakness on LSU's part.
Florida isn't as strong of a team as everyone wants to believe. If it weren't for a few key players, they wouldn't have gotten as far as they have. As a whole, though, Alabama seems to have an overall better team.
Again, this is all coming from a non-football fan, but girlfriend of an avid college football fan.
Boise State anything else is criminal! They have been on top continuously and when they we're given a bowl game against Oklahoma they whipped them. It's time for a play-off or give respect to a Damn good program in Idaho! All they do is beat everyone put in front of them.
Tebow is far from the only player that Florida has. Demps is one of the fastest players in college football,Aaron Hernandez is a ridiculously gifted athlete, and Riley Cooper has managed to discover that he can actually run. Don't forget Moody, a former top recruit at USC, and Brantley, Tebow's backup, who could easily step in and would probably improve the passing game. Oh yeah, and Brandon James is always a threat to break a long run on punts and kickoffs.
Again, the Florida defense will make the difference. At the beginning of the season, a commentator stated that every starter on the defensive side of the ball for Florida will probably play in the NFL. I don't think there are any other teams in college football that could make the same claim.
Ultimately, the game will be decided on the field and it will be decided by Florida's ability to stop Ingram. If he runs all over the Gators, 'Bama could take it, but again I feel like Florida has been holding back.
I'm a Gator's fan, but I'm hating how Meyer is playing Tebow...he's going to be seriously hurt before he even enters the NFL, and I'm not so sure he's a good enough 'pure passer' to even be a good NFL caliber QB.
With that said, I think this is going to be a lopsided game honestly....
I am personally rooting for Alabama. I am a pretty big Alabama fan and have done some comparison work on both teams and while Florida is the favorite among sports annalists, I believe that they are extremely close in everything. I do, however, think Alabama has a slight lead defensively. It is sure be a good game either way.
I don't think Alabama can blow out Florida but I seriously think they can beat them! They came back from a 14 point deficit to BEAT Auburn which shows that they can be losing and still win. Auburn had a good game plan that Alabama didn't see coming. However, the game against Chattanooga, well that was a blow out with the star players taken out of the game at the half...So the potential to BEAT the Gators is there and I hope it happens!
I say it's going to be a low scoring game. Bama's defense is solid. Florida is aggressive, though, so it's going to be very interesting. I can't possibly go against my favorite team. Alabama all the way.
