I just hope we can stuff UF's run game and they feel like they have to throw. I like our secondary's chances.

Florida will be bigger, faster, and more athletic at virtually every position. If we win, it will be an upset.
Yep! And I sure don't want to see UAB get banged up with injuries trying too hard win one game against a favored SEC team on the road this late in the season. Any type of injury would be devastating.

I loved the placement of this game being late in the season just because the possible injuries won't have much impact on the season. Our guys are banged up from the grind and normal competition. Not because they are out there against superior depth and talent. Hopefully the grind has taken steam out of Florida just like us, which should even the playing field.

I know we put up points, but I don't consider us high scoring. We just grind. I don't expect many points to be scored tomorrow. The defense and field position should be key. I hope their offense tries to open the game up and we get some turnovers off their aggressiveness.

I would have given the nod to our defense over offense, but after taking a look, we are #42 at 32.0 ppg and Florida is #115 at 20.6 ppg.

I guess by comparison, we are a high scoring offense. The numbers all favor us, but it's so hard to put together a comparison given who they've played and who we've played.

I hope we give them the Rice treatment...I don't expect it, but it would be awesome!

Game should be dedicated to Greg Bryant. Our only Florida game of the year for a Florida boy. Don't know how many players will be thinking about him today.

I bet that Bryant comes up in the locker room before the game.

The Swamp is aways an advantage for Florida, but it's the end of a bad season. The team and fans are dispirited. I hope a lot of people blow off going to the game as a result.

Getting a lead early would be big, but I think what wins it for us is if the defense can score. A pick-6 and some turnovers forced will break them.
