        Just clarifying, to win 30, you have to score 30, right?

              I will not be at the game, will be out of town and will not see the game. But does a game against a Division 8 high school badminton team really deserve its own thread?:backout:. I guess it does since our beloved team has stunk out loud for the better part of a decade! Enjoy.

                Hi 48-17. D subs allow late scores.

                Muschamp would try to do it by holding the opponent to a negative scoring. Heck he probably considered defensive scores as negative scoring by the opponent.

                  Are you drunk? It's a Gator game. We've had game threads every single game going well back to the GSMB days, regardless of opponent. It's also the opening game of the season and you're complaining there's a thread?

                  I guess where you're going doesn't have televisions.

                  Sober up.

                    Can't get overhyped about it. Remember, in Hee Haw's opener, we dropped 61 on New Mexico State and everyone thought we had the next Spurrier on the sideline, then we struggled mightily to beat ECU the following week.

                        I got to go to my cousins wedding at 5:30 on game day, hoping to get out of it with my wife being 37 weeks pregnant, but hell no she's put in to go. Hopefully I'll be back by the 2nd quarter.

                            I did study the opening gimme games fora a few years way back. I was surprised to find, that if you were sloppy with the ball in the then two consecutive games against gimme type opponents that tended to carry over for the whole season.

                            What i am hoping to see this week is:

                            1. A balanced offense at least in yards if not plays.

                            2. A credible OL performance. They really need to look good against an opponent like this to hope to improve and be credible later the season (month).

                            3. No DB breakdowns. This will be a young defensive backfield. They have shown to be talented, but they need to be consistent play after play and not give up long scores against such an opponent. And even the backups who will probably have to play some key downs this season need to not give up long plays.

                            4. Some rational use of the RBs. Something that looks like a rotation so guys can get a feel for the game and become more productive as a game goes along.

                            5. A good pass rush. If UF gets a lead as expected, then there should be plenty of pass rushing opportunities.

                            6. The front seven handling business and not getting gashed on 7ish or more yard runs even if they are infrequent.

                            7. Solid punting and place kicking.

                            8. Solid QB play so that the QB or QBs can build up confidence including in their ability to pass in this offense. QB play will need to be built up week by week this season, but it must start week one.

                            9. A coaching plan to accomplish these goals. Some logical way to develop the QBs. So don't just go with bubble screens because they are there. Find a variety of things for the QB to build stats with. Find a logical way to use the RBs. Maybe use two until the lead is outsize then work in the others. Sure take some chances on defense, but make your your DBs are not going to give up and big scoring play or your front seven is sound and not subject to being gashed. Don't try a 55 yard FG, get your guy a 25 to 35 yarder to build confidence. Don't go for it on 4th down all the time, let your punter and place kicker build up confidence.

                              I love these opening game scrubs. I'll be there, and I'll actually have hope that we can win the SEC East for this game.

                              We might have to watch out for this team to hang in there in the first half more than we realize. Their coach says the QB that is going to be starting this year has "incredible" skills.
