At times it wasn't pretty. The rain made for a soggy atmosphere that looked to work against our one-dimensional Gators. There were passes that fluttered and some way off the mark. There were dropped balls. There were missed calls. There was poor tackling and poor coverage. There were missed blocks. But in the end there were the Gators sitting at 7-1, rebounding from their first loss and showing that they could win, on the road, without their best two defenders. Mullen was a little giddy speaking post-game. And who could blame him? His counterpart...not so much.

38-27. Not what you'd call a commanding victory, but after the way we started and then spotting them a TD (and the lead again) after a pick on the second half's first possession, it was somewhat satisfying after the final seconds ticked off. Face it, we are what we saw today. We're good enough to win whenever we take the field, but without near perfect execution, we don't quite have the roster to dominate. Auburn one week, LSU the next. Meaning that every week will be a battle, nothing will come easy for us. But you've got to love the overall attitude of this team and their heart. We'll have to see how far that will take us.

Before we get into the game points, I have to make a couple of comments, the first regarding the announcers, or at least Greg McElroy.

:trux:

His lack of love for us is a matter of record, but I thought he carried the scrutiny of the officiating crew to new heights (or depths). I can do without his opinions or any reminders of the rash he still carries where the Gators are concerned. Second, how about the sad lot of hillbilly 'Cock fans. It was ridiculous seeing them throw so much trask on the field when things didn't go their way. Wait a minute, did I say "trask?" Pardon my Freudian slip! 21-33 for 200 yards and 4 TDs, despite a slow start, wasn't exactly "trashy" given the site and the conditions. The story continues to develop.
