Alright, feeling a bit better after the past several posts. Florida always worries me.
I'm not comfortable with this matchup at all.
I don't think our defense will do all that well once again. Which will keep Florida in the game.
If Florida can force Mett into a couple of picks, I think they win the game. Ultimately, I don't think they will.
I'm not comfortable either, Easly being out helps, and I think they lost a DB a few weeks ago to an injury also, but scoring is not what I'm overly concerned with. (Feels weird saying that). I'm worried about the linebackers and defensive ends against the zone read.
If there was ever a game to go balls to the wall with the blitz it would be this one with this Yankee QB playing in Death Valley for the first time.
LSU 35 UF 21
I feel like our defensive front 7 is better equipped for a zone read offense than a traditional one.
You would think that but the 2 QB's we have faced this season who primarily run the read option have had great success on us.
Barrow plays the option horribly. It's like when it comes down to him making a tackle he over commits and makes it especially easy for the qb to make an easy decision am get yards.
Hope that can be a learning experience for him, and that he can grow from that. It is also up to the coaches in making sure he corrects that.
It will be very interesting how Cam would scheme against this tough UF Defense. Would he start opening up other offense options?
I definitely think he'll throw out some new plays, formations, etc. I'm hoping Brazil will be back from his unannounced suspension and will see a few carries on a sweep or end-around.
I agree that the FLA will be our toughest test of the season for us moving the football offensively. But I also believe that FLA will have trouble with that young QB in a REAL hostile environment getting the offense set.
I think this will be another tight game at the half but I say Murphy throws 2 costly picks and we win going away:
Hopefully, we'll be a hostile environment for the new QB. With any luck, Tiger Stadium won't empty by half. The 2:30 start time may help with that.
This one makes me nervous. I think Florida can win the East. They are the forgotten team in the East. I think they are the only team, in my opinion, in the SEC that currently could hold another SEC team to under 14 points. I worry as much about their offense vs our lack of defense. I think Murphy is an upgrade fro Driskel and he seems to be better equipped to make their offense go. Our defense is going to have to grow a lot this week if we are going to win this game. Our OL is going to have to be more consistent with run blocking or we may be looking at a lot of 3rd and long (I know we have been outstanding on 3rd down conversions, but at some point we might not be). Will be a very interesting matchup to say the least.
