Gators’ defense found its footing in win over Kentucky

Kentucky’s first four drives took 22 minutes and 10 seconds off of the clock and resulted in 10 points. The Wildcats rushed for 126 yards in the first half.

Everything seemed to be going according to script for the offensively challenged Wildcats. They were wearing down UF’s defense by dominating time-of-possession, keeping Florida’s high-powered offense off of the field, and taking advantage of scoring opportunities when they got them.

Then the chewing out happened.

Really Uk is just challenged offesnsively to say the least. If this defense plays like this on the road against the Vols or LSU especially they going too lose. It cost Trask a real shot today at the Heisman lack of possesions. Jones won it today against Auburn.

Tennessee is terrible on offense. LSU has shown flashes against bad teams but scored on the last possession to avoid a shutout against A&M. Neither team can score enough to threaten Florida.

Everything you said is a carbon copy of Uk and look how that game started and we were at home. I dont understand why you guys keep having this great faith in Grantham defense .

As we've seen rather consistently throughout the season, Florida's defense can falter against pretty much any opponent. Kentucky entered the game as the SEC's worst-ranked offense, and yet the Wildcats controlled an entire half of the game with the Gators' defense at its mercy.
However, while slow starts defensively have been a consistent issue for Florida eight games into the season, it's yet to hurt the Gators in the long run. We'll see if that holds true against Alabama in the SEC Championship, should everything go to plan over the next two weeks.
