Please tell me, how did Florida lose that game to Mississippi?
On September 27, 2008, the Florida Gators (10-1) lost 31 – 30 to Eli Manning’s college team Ole Miss (7-4), but if they had not lost that game they would probably be #1 or #2 in the nation and they would definitely have an 11-0 record rather than 10-1.
Update: my bad, Florida is currently ranked #2 in the AP polls as of Sunday 11/23.
I mean Tim Tebow passed for 319 yards and one touchdown, and he rushed for another 2 touchdowns. Apparently the offense took the first and third quarters off, and the defense basically took the whole game off.
Only three other teams have scored more than 10 points against Florida this season and they were all blow outs:
Oh yeah and the 10 point games were blow outs too:
In conclusion, the Ole Miss game was a fluke. A couple players had a bad day. An assignment was missed. A pass was overthrown. It cost Florida the game… by 1 point! It was a fluke.
Florida vs. Alabama
Alabama Crimson Tide
As of today, Florida has 162 more points-for and 6 fewer points-against. Alabama has just barely won 3 of their 11 games, the margin of victory for 2 games being 4 points or less, and one win coming in OT. The sum of the parts to me, equals a Florida win, so long as the Florida defense shows up on game day.
Tim Tebow will throw for 200+ plus yards and 3 touchdowns, and will rush for 50 or so yards and 1 touchdown. A running back, probably Harvin but possibly Rainey, also nabs a score. They kick one field goal.
As for Alabama? John Parker Wilson tossed 1 touchdown and 1 pic, but their running corps rushes for 2 total touchdowns on the day. Add maybe a field goal or two.
Final score: Florida Gators 38 – Alabama Crimson Tide 27
Once this happens, you can expect to see the Florida Gators recognized as the best team in the nation, moving up to the #1 spot in the AP, BCS, and Coaches polls.
