I want to say yes...if it is yes, IMO it might be an ugly win...like to know what the rest of you think.

What are the odds? :o

I think the Gators are team that CAN win ugly, and that may serve them well in this game.  I think they can compete athletically with the Buckeyes.

If the Gators win, I see the reason being that the Gators are able to come out and surprise OSU with just how good their D is.

I think that OSU will probably win, but it's almost 50-50 IMO.

Yes, they can definitely win. They have the defense to put some pressure on Smith, and everyone should keep and eye on the Gators WR's. If the Oline holds, the Gators WRs will be running circles around the OSU secondary. Leak just needs to keep his head in the game and not make mistakes. If the Gators get blown out, I put it on the coaches, as they sure have the players to win it.

Here is what I think. OSU defense will be all over that spread option, zone stuff UF runs and will keep the gators for really getting up early. I think OSU struggles on offense early but the OSU defense keeps it close enough early, OSU by 10.

Florida is to fast of an offense and deffense for OSU, and our trickery is nothing like what OSU has gone up against....there for my pre-game prediction is this:

Florida by 10



Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow will be a great NFL QB is an idiot.

The OSU secondary will get to see just how fast Percy Harvin really is.

I'm not for or against any team but I think OSU comes out slow on offense and then picks it up. I also think with the time off they should have a great plan on meyers spread option offense. They did a good job on Vince young last year when they faced that offense. I do know one thing, Meyer won't out coach Tressel, Tressel will win that job hands down.

If florida can get up early and extend that lead to 2 scores they have a shot but I think its only a matter of time till OSU gets acclimated after being off 50 days and when they do, they will score points unlike any team Florida has faced this year. The difference in the game will be Troy Smith, Bucks by 10.

I've only seen one Ohio State game (vs Michigan) and one Gators game (vs Auburn) and would say it looks to be a pending shootout. A good friend of mine is a huge Buckeyes fan and thinks it will be a landslide in their favor. As someone who had to stay in Dayton, OH for a couple of year for work...I root for anything against Ohio. It's the armpit of this country...if you ask me.

Everyone I've ever run across that has gone to Ohio State seem to think the Buckeyes could join the NFL and become a dynasty. It's ridiculous.

Any team would have a chance against the Buckeyes, so sure the Gators do, I just don't see the Gators winning.

no dog in this fight...i grew up in NC and my alma mater is ECU!

My semi-educated opinion....and we know what they say about those.....;)

Gators 24 Buckeyes 17 ----->  2 scores for gators come on special teams and D.
