I don't want to prejudge emotion, but there wasn't the normal jumping around that you see coming out of the tunnel there. There looked to be a lot of subdued Gators. Normally, they have coach holding them back, they didn't look all that hyped. Maybe I am reading too much into it.

Florida has won the toss and deferred.

Keep them behind the chains will be key. Really no gain there on first down.

Allowing seven yard runs on first down isn't going to get it done. That leaves second down open for anything they want to do.

Grounding?

Florida can't win for losing. You can't have those unforced errors against a team this good. There's a free five yards.

Only two Alabama receivers ran routes on that play, and Devonta Smith was wide open over the middle of the field.

Florida wasn't set, Alabama gets to the line, first down Tide.
Ethan Hughes

That's going to be a first down after review.

Harris strolls in like he is on a relaxing Sunday afternoon walk in the park. 7-0 Bama.

That's going to be a huge mismatch all game. Alabama's offensive line just looks like a bunch of Ram trucks. I think you'd prefer Alabama to have to score that way than with the vertical passing game, though.

If Florida excepts a bowl bid and Grantham is still the DC by then. Mullens wwould be showing he doesn't ever want too win big!

I can't stand these ESPN camera angles. Should Toney have headed outside on the return? I don't know. I couldn't see.

Fumble, Trask recovers for short gain. Iffy start for Florida.

Pitts, after being held, makes the catch and the first down.

Harris tried to lay him out, but missed him.
Ethan Hughes

I think that's a good overturn of the targeting call. He hit him in the shoulder.

Give the offensive line credit there, they gave Trask time to lay it in there to Toney. Touchdown Florida.

This is going to be a lot of fun. Great throw by Trask.

Alabama starts in a hole after the penalty. Lets see if the UF defense plays with some sense of urgency here.

Yell it would be if our defense was at least average.

Houston with another tackle, but this one was about nine yards down the field rather than two or three.

Don't do this to yourself you have seen enough of Grantham to know dam well they are not good enough to dfo anything good.
Mark Wheeler

You would like to have enough talent and depth along the line to run 8-10 guys out there in a rotation, but UF doesn't have that particularly big bodies.

Trey Dean turned the game around, then lost it.

Give him credit for the initial pick though.

Not many offensive skill position players would have survived that hit, much less a safety who is carrying the ball haphazardly because he isn't used to carrying the ball.

Sums up Gators defense you cant really beleive this crap happens to them but it does.SMH
Ethan Hughes

My goodness. I realize that was an incredible hit, but Trey Dean has to hang onto that,
