Will Harris article from ESPN insider:
Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs (in Jacksonville, Fla.)
Florida is favored by seven points
TeamRankings win odds for Georgia: 31 percent
Momentum and belief have carried an overachieving Gators outfit a long way and will take them all the way to Atlanta if they can win their 19th Cocktail Party in the past 23 tries. On the surface, the Gators have piled up four impressive SEC wins. In reality, no team in the conference save Vanderbilt has shown up to play Florida with anything approaching its average effort.
This week's price indicates that some Gator doubters were converted last week. A touchdown on a neutral field is a big step up from the numbers of previous weeks (last week, Florida was favored by 3.5 points at home versus South Carolina). We're still not sold, and we still see a lot of what's fueling this team as unsustainable. And while we love the impact offensive coordinator Brent Pease has made, the Gators are going to need more than what they've been getting offensively to keep that zero in the loss column. The tailback numbers have been in steady decline as opposing defenses have more film to work with, and not every foe will slurp up QB Jeff Driskel's ball fakes the way Vanderbilt did.
The Bulldogs haven't exactly been impressive this year, but it's tough to beat a veteran team that's been handed a second chance. We are simply not interested in laying points with a Florida team that still requires its opponent to screw up in order to score.
The pick: Georgia 16, Florida 13
Nice add another one to the list
scrape the sides up...

Boy us Gator's get hated on bad...JUST WIN
There is soo much wrong with what is said here, its laughable.
The Fact Florida has made every team look terrible, not a Florida success but the opponents failure of course. The tailback number have been in steady decline? We played USC last week, a team that actually stops the run (And spotted us 21 points in short fields). So all of Florida's wins are teams rolling over? NOt Florida being tough, aggressive and forcing turnovers? What hogwash.
Oh well, guy will be disappointed come Saturday and I'm sure he never admits he was completely wrong.
I sent it to Dillman, Pease, and Elam. They need to be ready and know that the media still doubts us!!

Florida is one of the better coached teams in America. Add to that, that this team will not defeat themselves, and there's your strategy to winning ball gms.
We won't hear that type of truth from analyst though.
Haters gonna hate. They forget when Driskel had to step up vs aTm and UT he made some big time plays with his arm with the pressure on. I think Driskel makes the plays he needs to this week.
You ever go night night?
Check out the attached comparison from ESPN Insider and Scouts, INC. http://www.avoriosphere.com/files/UF-UGA-ESPN.jpg
Somehow McShay and his team of "rocket scientists" think Georgia's secondary and LBs are better than the Gators. On top of that, they think that becasue Clownley caused problems for the Gators, Jarvis Jones will also cause problems and the Dogs will beat the Gators.
McShay thinks the Dogs have a lot of NFL potential, so of course that means they will win. It doesn't seem to matter to him that their defense has been bad all year.
RT. fvck the nonbelievers
Thought long about what to say about this and.......7-0, JUST WIN
Just exactly how probable is it that every single team FL has played has rolled over and that this is the reason UF is winning? I'd say the odds are very, very low. All the chatter is because people can't point to one thing, one player and say, this is why they are winning so much. That's the whole point of having a balanced team effort.
When UF loses, then we'll talk. Until then #justwin.

Damn beat me to it.
The one thing that he did say right, is that we need to get Gilly going again. He had a poor game against Vandy and South Carolina, so one can't argue that just the great South Carolina D stopped him, and I know Driskel had the great rushing game against Vandy. But Gilly will be key against UGA and he helps us in so many ways, setting other things up.
I do think Gilly is starting to feel the affects of all the carries. We need to give Mack the ball a bit more imo. 7 points is a big spread for this game. I think we CAN cover for sure, but not sure we will. If UGA comes to play and protects the ball, this will be a major battle.
I believe it, but also think that its funny that they gave the coaching advantage to UF...
The only way to knock someone down is to disparage their schedule or how they won. Whenever we win it's because the other team had a bad day, right? That's what they say and that's the only argument to take if you are arguing against an undefeated team.
Meanwhile, UGA just had "bad days" when they got hammered or looked poor against weak opponents. Plus their opponents are just too good on those days or "get up" for them, right?
Just win and it all works out.
Considering he has only played 7 games and has not carried the ball that much the last two weeks (and has already had a week off this year), I really don't want to hear about "being worn out." He should be fresh as a daisy. We act like the guy is made of china.
Will Harris? WHO?
What the hell does that mean, "requires opponents to screw up in order to score"? That is precisely when most teams score - when the opposing team screws up; whether it's being out of position or making a bad read. And people should stop acting like South Carolina kept fumbling the ball without contact. Their mistake was not securing the ball and our skill forced those balls out because of that.
This is a common perception of the Florida team right now: that they are winning on emotion and not skill. Of course, stats through 7 games completely destroy that notion, but people hate being wrong, so they keep saying it.
By the way, I can already see the excuses from this guy (and others) if UGA loses. "Gators needed strong winds to keep Georgia's passing game in check to win" or some bullsh*t along those lines.

PUTTING THIS ON MY LIST!
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
More people who want us to have 300+ yards and 50 points every game before we're considered "maybe good."
