    This game will hinge on Kentucky's ability to run the ball and our ability to stuff the run. If they can't run the ball, and we get up a couple scores early, this one will turn ugly in a hurry. If they're able to run the ball successfully and keep the defense on the field, it could be a long day for the Gators.

    Fortunately for us, revenge is a dish best serve cold, and I think we will win this one in blowout fashion after starting slow.

      13-10 Gators.

      45 points? :lol: I don't think either team is going to be able to run the ball.

        27-20 late field goal puts us ahead for good after we shut them down in the fourth

            30 - 17 good guys thanks to the defense.

            Until Franks shows up in these kind of games, I assume be plays average to below average.

            If Franks only plays "average to below average", how will UF score 27 points? Turnovers?

              I don't think it will be nearly as clumsy as the Miami game but going with the same prediction - a 26 - 23 win in OT. Their tackles actually move when the ball is snapped unlike Miami's in that first game.

                  It's true that UK is starting some journeyman QB that no one has ever heard of. Even his parents don't know who he is. Chances are he's in for a VERY long day, as I can only assume Grantham is going to be extremely aggressive. If that QB throws a pick or two or three, that could certainly lead to a lot more points.

                  However, I'm counting on Kentucky being extremely conservative and passing as little as possible. They are going to want to grind the clock and protect that stiff they have behind center.

                  I'm banking on a couple of turnovers from them and maybe a blocked punt, something on special teams. That's where I came up with the 45 points.

                  A little conservative but I agree if we aren't plus 2 in turnovers at least I don't see us blowing this team out.

                  We need to hope he isn't a one week wonder against us.

                        I wish it weren't so. Desperately. We've had enough pain in the last decade.

                            Kentucky is, like Miami, stout against the run, suspect through the air.

                            I think I'd come out throwing, but that's me. Mullen hasn't shown that kind of confidence in his passing game.

                                I don't think we'll light them up running the ball, I figure this one will look like the UT game last year.
