    Hopefully our Gators don’t have a hangover from the big win against UGay last weekend. Whatever luck we had, I hope we didn’t use it all up with Mortimer Bennett V and StickMan Mathis missing all of their deep balls. If there’s one thing that Franks can do decent, it’s throw the deep pass. I full expect our defense to be fired up to play against him, and I expect Trask to continue his Heisman campaign. Franks throws two picks and has a fumble. Trask throws 5 tds and UF rolls.

      44-27 UF, with FF scoring a late TD in garbage time. He then points directly at Ox and blows him a kiss.

          I expect our DBs to give up a cheap one or two, but I think we'll outpace them on the scoreboard fairly comfortably. Franks hits a deep ball late to make it look closer than it really was.

            This is a hard one to pick. They are probably the most improved team in the SEC, but that not saying much considering they are coming from a place where they literally couldn't win a single conference game. They are all trap games for us going forward until ATL. I'll say we win but don't cover, 44-31.

            Expect FF to come out fired up and his team with him. They keep it close for the first 10 -12 minutes... Gators step on the gas and pull away. Trask throws for 4 TD's and Dan plays "keep away" through much of the 4th quarter keeping Trask from getting a 5th. Also keeping us from hanging half a hundred on them. Expect one drive to be thrown off rhythm When Dan puts EJ out there in the middle of a drive.

              35-24. I think their defense is gonna get some stops. They've been pretty scrappy. I think they'll hang around and give us a game. Especially if pitts is out.

                Unfortunately I agree with all that you just said. Wish Dan would wait until a comfortable lead in the 4th and then give EJ the whole quarter rather than have him come in the middle and break the rhythm.

                  Not sure of the result, but the way ARKY plays and has been playing on both sides of the ball is very concerning on paper against us. Defensively they will play soft zone coverage the entire game, so we can forget about throwing numerous 50-50 balls. They don;t play man and they do not care what routes are run whatsoever. They are extremely well coached in zone and at least 6 of their defenders play defense with their eyes. They have numerous picks and it will not surprise me if they grab a couple in this game. Will Cousin Eddie be patient enough to run the ball (running lanes will be ample if you keep doing it) and will Trask be willing just to dump the ball down. Forget about hitting long wheel routes out of the backfield or 50-50 balls. ARKY does not care. Their guys play their areas and use their eyes to play those areas well. Our guys will need to run to the soft spots and sit down. There will be no man to man unless they are specifically chasing a particular receiver.

                  On offense ARKY does a lot of BS fakes, etc. and given our DB's penchant to fall for the banana in the tailpipe, would not shock me to see a few over the top wide open receivers. I hate to hope they don;t connect, but I can't hope that we will be in tight coverage the entire game as they will never happen.

                  Patience on offense, take what ARKY is easily willing to give you and play your keys on defense is how you must play. Otherwise it will be a tussle.

                      Not sure FVKK-WAD, but you are welcome to make one for me. Other than out DB's will blow numerous coverages and Cousin Eddie will do something management wise that makes no sense, I don;t have much interest in predicting scores. I am just more into the intracacies that the actual outcomes.

                              I predict vitriolic posts from our fearless leader regardless of the outcome. If Franks isn't airlifted to a MASH unit before the game is over I'm afraid we may need to have Ox sedated for his own safety.

                                41-20 good guys.

                                Trask gets 4 passing TDs, and we get one rushing. We end up kicking 2 field goals, both in the first half. First is when EJ comes in and kills the momentum, and the second one to get points on the board at the end of the half.

                                Franks gets 2 passing TD’s, one early in the game on their only solid drive of the game, and one late in the game during trash time.
