Default The Florida Game

What do you guys think Muscamp will change to give his team a chance at winning. In all likelyhood, his job is on the line. You know he's planning something different to try and save his ass. He and his team are truly desperate right now.

Personally, I think we are much better team and should win this game easily. But they have a lot of athletes and with their defense, they could make it interesting if they execute their gameplan effectively.

Gamecocks need to dominate from the start and keep the pressure on. Florida will try like hell to create turnovers. I'm sure they realize this is their best chance of winning. If we can avoid coughing it up, we should win by 21+ points.

Athletically their team is as good as ours. the difference is we run better schemes and have better coaches. As long as spurrier doesn't pull a brain fart, we should win this game after struggling in the first half to score points. Getting up early is the key to the game. I might take the ball first if we win the toss.

First off there is nothing wrong with the gator defense. Their DL and LB corp have the ability to make our lives miserable. Our OL will need to play their best game to date. If they do then I think we go up by two scores early and coast to a blowout.

Where the gators really suck is on offense. There is only so much they can change at this point in time too. I think that Clowney has a highlight reel day. UF may decide to go with trickery. What do they have to lose? They may try to convert on fourth downs much of the game. If they succeed they get new life and woe is us. If we stop them the rout is on.

The gator fans have by and large given up. How will their team respond? Muschump's personality can alienate people, players included. I just do not see him being able to rally the troops. I think that they circle the wagons and fire inward.

This on offense and they will probably blitz like hell on defense. After all, what do they have to lose?

Looks like UF had the game against Vandy they we had against UF last year. Vandy was held to 183 yards of offense and scored 34 points! The UF QB was 30-46 with 305 passing yards. Throw this game out. It is not indicative of the way UF may play next week.

USC should win, but UF could make it interesting IF they don't turn it over.

Just throwing this out there. No matter how good we are, or how bad they are.... Im never comfortable going to a game against Florida... What we need to help us win this game is for our crowd to really get into this game and make Florida's offense miserable all night. That will give us the best chance of winning... for example, last year's UGA game.

You are ridiculous if you really believe we will win by 21+. This is an SEC opponent with one of the best defenses in the SEC. I, for one, think your hypothesis is fraudulent in the first place. IOW, IMO you are trolling as usual. It wouldn't surprise me at all if you have linked this thread to one of the UF boards.

Vandy won by 17 in the swamp so I don't see 21 as ridiculous. But I'm predicting 28- 13

You have completely lost your mind.

How the hell can anyone think my post is trolling?

Muschamp has completely lost the UF players at this point. They will give up if Carolina can get up by a score or two. I also look for Carolina to force a turnover or two against a terrible UF offense and that will make all the difference this week. Lastly, if Connor's knee sprain has sufficiently healed by game day, his legs will take some of the pressure off of the offense on 3rd and short. Carolina wins 28 - 17.

I expect to see a lot of pressure with some blitzing. I think there will be lots of attempts to strip the ball, and maybe risky tries for interceptions rather than tackles or breakups. On offense, I do expect a lot of misdirection and quarterback runs, but also some play action. They will scheme against Clowney, likely with swing and screen passes and misdirection runs to his side.
I wouldn't be surprised to see some fighting and dirty hits if they get behind as their team looked to lack discipline in the game I watched.

This'll be a defensive slugfest. Muschamp will find some way to get his team up for this one and I expect both defenses to dominate.

Turnovers will determine the outcome to this one.

Default Re: The Florida Game

Another poster wrote that Muschamp will coach like he has nothing to lose. I don't necessarily see it that way. The worse thing that could happen to Muschamp is to be humiliated by USC and FSU. A couple of respectable losses won't cost him his job. So I expect he'll play it fairly conservative against us. The Gator's O line will be woefully overmatched against our defensive front. My guess is that running the ball is potentially less hazardous than putting the ball in the air, so I believe the Gators will keep it on the ground and try to hang in the game until the 4th.

It's got to happen at some point in the year, right?

Time is running out, this is our last reg season SEC contest.

Time to put it all together.

Even the last time Muschamp brought the Gators to town, they were weak offensively and STILL gave us fits with their defense. I think Connor threw for like 60 yards and the only pass he completed more than 20 was the fade to Ace Sanders who bailed him out with a great catch late in the game. Other than that, the passing game was nonexistent. Thank goodness for Brandon Wilds that day.

Default Re: The Florida Game

This game is going to have the potential to cause heart attacks, and strokes if we don't grab some early turnovers from Florida. If the line up and pound our D on the ground, and blitz and put a spy on Connor all game, I might puke out my heart by the 4th quarter. I really hope we handle UF easily, but I have a feeling they see this as what it is...their only shot at bowl eligibility. I think we see a motivated bunch with Florida's pride on the line come into WB, and they will try to bust us in the mouth early and see how we respond.

True, but Shaw is a better qb than two years ago.

You are probably right about the defensive battle, but I could see it going the other way(in our favor) if we execute and don't turn the ball over.

We win the turnover battle and we could pull away in the second half.

I'm basing my optimism on the fact that it's the last SEC game at home for a lot of our top players. Shaw, JD and a few others. The home game win streak is on the line and our chances of going to ATL, not to mention a BCS Bowl. We have a lot more to play for than UF and surely our players will not crap themselves like last year in the swamp.

It's time for payback.

It's going to be an interesting game, no doubt.
