I just got back from ATL...I'm gonna try to make it out to Glendale, but the tickets seem like they are gonna be pretty tough to come by. (I don't think they are giving much to the students).

So if anyone has any kind of ticket info...just message me.

Go Gators. WE DESERVE IT

Don't know that UF has enough offense to beat OSU.



You might be right Dal, but the Gators always find a way to keep games close.  

Last nights game wasn't a conventional game but it was damned entertaining.  I can't remember seeing a game where 5 different guys threw for TD passes.

It was crazy...you could feel the momentum change in that stadium.

Urban didn't call a great game, but the D and ST more than made up for the lack of O.

but to win vs. OU, we'll need to get D Wynn involved and control the clock. (Something we haven't done well this year)

The fumbled punt and TD was a huge momentum swing, bad mistake by the PR guy.

Best of luck to the gators and their fans.  Will be rooting for them.

Honestly wanted Michgan because it would cause more BCS chaos than this but I think the voters knew that.

They shouldn't need to score a lot of points, but they did score 31 offensively on AK last night.  I think it will be a 24-21 type game, barring a team gets TO happy.  Our defense should be able to slow OSU down enough to where we won't need to score 30+.  OSU is not going to score 42 points on this defense.  Michigan couldn't hang defensively because they didn't have the speed.  Well, UF's D is loaded with speed, and we have the speed on offense as well to give OSU's young defense fits. 

The only thing that scares me in this game is OSU has a good kicking game and we do not.  Could play a huge part in the outcome of this game.

I'm really afraid of Troy Smith...UF's pass defesnse has been poor this year (note the South Carolina game). So Ryan Smith and Reggie Lewis will have their hands full.

But that being said, we do have an athletic defense that could be great if we can get some pass rush. I don't think OSU has played a really tough D this season, and the OSU D is weak.

It'll be a great game.

Pass defense appears poor because we have been so good at stopping the run teams throw often, and a lot of it has come at garbage time.  Against SC if you notice most of their passing was short passes over the middle...the area normally patrolled by Siler and Everett.  They were out/injured and we had true freshmen in there who were exploited.  By the 8th we should be fully healthy, and I think our D can hang with OSU's offense when at full strength.  Overall Pass defense looks bad, but our pass efficiency defense is 6th in the country.  We have only given up 10 pass TD's while getting 20 INT's.  All year our defense has really been bend but don't break, especially in the passing game.

What I did find interesting is that with all the hoopla with OSU offense, UF actually averages more passing yards a game than OSU, and most would say against tougher defenses overall.  Smith gets all the accolades, but OSU's strength is really their run game, averaging 180 a game.  That should play in nicely with our 6th ranked run defense, which held the 3rd best running team in Arkansas about 100 yards below their average.....

I think we matchup nicely with OSU, more than any other team.  It will all come down to execution.
