- UTenn...Don't think so. Pac 10 has one good team and Cal wasn't it.

- FSU...if they play like they did at the OB, this should be an easy victory for the Gators

- I'm sure most of us Gators fans agree that LSU and Auburn are our toughest opponents this year

- UGA, Bama, S.Car...Out of all of these three, UGA may pose the biggest threat this year with their tough Defense, plus streaks always come to an end (hopefully not this year, right guys?). 'Bama, its payback time, and its at the SWAMP. S.Car, last year was a fluke.

The Gators should end up with, at most, 3 losses.

hmm lets see

just cause Tenn beat up on Cal doesnt mean Fulmer stop eating donuts and this team is not back,they still have a lack of skill talent

vs. LSU, that is homecomming in the Swamp, one of the hardest places in the country to play as a visitor. I UF just gets by in a close one

vs Auburn, this game scares me. They are very good on D but so are we. They have the advantage of Irons at RB and that might make the difference, but I think it will be a close game and there is a chance we pull it out.

vs. FSU, your serious, really, did you see what that offense did vs Miami, now think about going against and even better version. No chance, UF in a Romp.

Really, it could be a special year for the gators but we have to upset Auburn (maybe twice which is darn hard) As for the rest, we should be the favorite in every other game.

I dont think it's a cold hard fact that you guys are better then Auburn and LSU. I agree you're better then Tenn and FSU didnt show me enough on offense to make me think they are better then UF. But those are still 4 tough games that could potentially go either way.

If the Gators go undefeated they truely deserve a shot at the title, that schedule is insane. Even 1 loss and I'd put them in the championship game over some other teams that might be undefeated.

I agree. However, hearing "High" ankle sprain makes me nervous. That is the same thing that has kept Daniels out of all preseason and our first two games. High ankle sprains could be one week or 7 weeks to heal. I REALLY hope he heals quick (and we don't rush him back).

:yes: Couldn't agree more. Bright side is that it couldn't have happened to a deeper position. We have loads of WR talent. I wouldn't mind seeing them include Brandon James in the offensive plans. Couldn't be a more perfect change of pace back for Wynn.

Couldn't be a more perfect change of pace back for Wynn.I agree on both points. Our depth at WR is just silly. I mean top 5 are Baker, Harvin, Caldwell, Cornelius, and Ingram. That's just crazy! Moore just isn't doing it for me at RB in Meyer's offense. I'm dying to see James in the backfield.

No doubt. Just like Harvin. That's what I love about Meyer. He doesn't just get his playmakers the ball, he flat out tells you he's going to put the ball in their hands. He's not afraid to let Freshmen have a tangible role either, which is commendable. Many coaches just don't trust the 18 year olds. If they can make plays, Meyer makes sure they have the opportunity to do so.

Florida has a chance to best both LSU and Auburn, But than again they could lose to both also. Each game between LSU and Auburn will be a toss up and injuries might play a part in it. Also in each game the team with better QB play will win the game period.

I have a feeling we are using him only to run for now. (unless the game is out of reach ... see UCF)

What I think Meyer is doing is setting up some opponent later on. Like a Auburn or LSU. Late in a close game 3rd and 1 or 2nd and short... we bring in Tebow. The other team instantly thinks run... so we do a Play action and have one of our speedsters open deep! (sounds good in my head anyway!)

I am gunna be totally honest and say that he needs more practice with his arm. I mean I have whatched alot of film from him in High School and I seen the Spring game and his accuarcy was alittle shaky, But I am sure he has gotten better since than. I honestly think its all about being able to read a Defense and whether he can read man to man or zone. This is the SEC and alot of teams will hide what they are gunna do and its not easy. Its would not be easy for any freshman QB

I honestly think its all about being able to read a Defense and whether he can read man to man or zone. This is the SEC and alot of teams will hide what they are gunna do and its not easy. Its would not be easy for any freshman QB
Looks like he'll get that practice on Saturday.


The coaches are hinting that Tebow will have a chance to show the other side of his game - the passing side - Saturday against Kentucky (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=University_of_Kentucky).

You gotta love how Meyer is making sure Tebow gets his reps so that that next year's drop off is at a minimum. I'll be blunt. He's scares the crap out of me being in against the likes of UT. Tebow is no where near the passer Leak was his freshman year. I doubt he ever will be equal to Leak in passing, but obviously doesn't need to be for Meyer. I'm just saying seeing Tebow **** back to throw worries me if it's going to be against LSU, Auburn...

His arm by no means scares me. He has a great arm and its really strong! I have said his accuracy is off, But with the coaching that he is getting that should improve a whole lot. No he will never be a Chris Leak and I am happy with that. I like Chris Leak, But I know when its 3rd and 5 and the game is on the line Tim Tebow will not slide one yard short of a first down. Chris Leak lacks alot of leadership skills that I think Tim Tebow has. Tebow will be a great player for the University of Florida. Every QB in the nation has flaws.

It wasn't just his accuracy. In the few pass attempts I've seen him make, he seemed hesitant, almost as if the game was moving too fast. He'll obviously get better, it will just take time. That's why I like seeing him get the snaps... I'm just not comfortable with him throwing against teams like LSU, Auburn... with really fast and dominant D's.

I agree with you Joe, those games are too important and against too tough of teams to have a freshman mistake occur. It could in fact change the outcome of the game. I only want to see Tebow throw against LSU and Auburn if we have a comfortable lead.

Really? I don't see that at all. I think Tebow is a much more physical powerful runner. He is pretty good at making people miss but usually goes right at guys and will use the stiff arm alot where as VY always tried avoided contact and tried to make everyone miss all the time.

The Chris Leak love-hate affair continues in Gainesville. He's tops in the nation with 12 TD passes, but with less than 12 minutes to play in a 26-7 win over Kentucky, he was greeted with chants of "Tebow ... Tebow." He wasn't perfect Saturday, but make no doubt: Leak's making a serious case for the Heisman and the Gator faithful need to give No. 12 a break.

I knew we'd be hearing alot of this after the game. And I think its taken out of context big time. The main reason the crowd boo'd when Leak came in is because Tebow was the one that marched them the whole way down the field on that particular drive and wanted to see him finish it off. IMO anyway.

I don't care, you don't boo when your starting quarterback comes in. I wanted to see tebow throw it and get a td pass but when Leak came in, I knew he'd get the td for sure. Guess what, he did. The second time Tebow was given the chance but underthrew a wide open CI who would have made it in the endzone. Then the coaching staff went back to chris. What that should tell fans, is that the coaching staff doesn't have full faith in tebow's passing/performance in the end zone.

Couldn't agree more. I wasn't defending the crowd in any way. I'm just saying thats the way I saw it as I was watching the game. I took it as they were booing Meyer's decision, not Leak himself. But there is no reason to be booing at all IMO, you support your team no matter who's on the field.

Here's something that should make the fans of both quarterbacks happy: The coaching staff is working on a plan that would have Leak and Tebow on the field at the same time.

"As (the rotation system) goes on, maybe we'll put Tim and Chris on the field at the same time," Mullen said. "We didn't do it last week. We might try to come up with something this week."

But hey, if you ever need a babysitter and you and Ash want to go to the game, drop them off here on your way to the game and I'd watch the kids for a couple hours.That's a very generous offer Steve. I just don't think you realize what you're asking for :lol:

I went to the UF-Bama games yesterday in Gainesville and, although the outcome was not what I had hoped for, I had a blast! It was not only my first time at a game in Gainesville, it was my first time in Gainseville off I-75.

I wanted to take this opportunity to compliment the people of Gainesville and the UF faithful for how classy they were toward myself and my girlfriend yesterday. I have been to many Bama games both in Tuscaloosa and on the road over the years and I've encountered some rather belligerent and obnoxious fans in my time, but the UF fans could not have been nicer to us. We tailgated before the game with a group who took us in as one of their own, offering us food and drink and just a great time. The people inside the stadium, while LOUD, were equally courteous. It was a great experience despite the Bama loss, probably the best I've had at any of Bama's road games.

You guys have a great program with some awesome, first-rate students and fans. You should be proud.

We definitely need a complete game performance. Our defense has been unbelieveable in the 2nd half this year, I didn't realize til I read it this morning that they've only given up 13 points in the second half all season. And 10 of those were in the Tennessee game, so the lone TD was on a trick play. Our defense also out-scored Bama's offense Saturday. :D

It appears Florida's offense will receive a speedy boost heading into Saturday's game against the nation's No. 1 defense.
True freshman wide receiver Percy Harvin is on target to return after missing most of the past three games with a high ankle sprain, UF (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Florida_Gators) coach Urban Meyer (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Urban_Meyer) said Monday.

Junior (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Junior) free safety Reggie Nelson was named the SEC (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Southeastern_Conference)'s defensive player of the week for his performance in UF (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Florida_Gators)'s win over Alabama.
Nelson sealed the victory with a 70-yard interception return for a touchdown with 4:19 remaining in the game. Earlier in the fourth quarter, he recovered cornerback Ryan Smith's fumble (following an interception) that helped set up a touchdown that gave the Gators a 21-13 lead.
Nelson also had five tackles and deflected a pass.
"He played exceptional," Meyer said.

FIngers crossed......


Tailback DeShawn Wynn's sprained knee may not prevent him from playing in Saturday's game against LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University), Florida coach Urban Meyer (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Urban_Meyer) said in a press conference Monday.

"There's a chance he'll play," Meyer said.

Wynn's knee was referred to as "a little sore," after being "very sore" Sunday night, Meyer said.

Wynn's performance in Florida's 28-13 win over Alabama earned him a grade of champion. Wynn played his best half of football, Meyer said.

"Obviously Wynn is a big part of the running game," said quarterback (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=quarterback) Chris Leak. "I think DeShawn will be ready to go."

The Manning influence

Meyer said starting quarterback (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=quarterback) Chris Leak has benefitted from spending time with Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning at the Mannings' passing camp this summer in Louisiana. Leak was invited by Archie Manning to work at the camp.
"What wasn't a strong point for him is becoming a stronger point," Meyer said. "I've learned a lesson. I'm going to send a quarterback (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=quarterback) every year to go watch the big boys doing it.
"You can count on Tim Tebow being in New England next year. He's going to go. Certainly, we're not allowed to pay for him, but he's going to go watch Tom Brady operate the (Patriots') offense. I think that's a better way to learn, watch the big boys do it. The Mannings helped Chris Leak this summer."

I think we'll do what is unexpected, I think we'll come out strong in the first half and score the first points. It's just a hunch I have. With gameday being in gainesville, and homecoming, and last weeks slow start, I think a spark will be ignited. Especiallly with Harvin in the game. Meyer said the biggest problem was they didn't get the ball to the playmakers. I think this will be on the staff's mind and they'll make sure they do it this time...especially with Harvin.

But the Miami Herald has an article (http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/sports/colleges/university_of_florida/15672886.htm) that hints that he may play this weekend!


The coach said Thomas did not actually engage in team drills.

''He worked out a little bit earlier -- not with the team,'' Meyer said. ``He's just trying to stay in shape.''

When asked if Thomas might play against LSU, Meyer responded: ``I don't have a comment. That's no one's business. I don't know.''

Florida has historically barred suspended players from all team activities -- even conditioning drills on an adjacent practice drill.

But Thomas has officially returned to team functions despite the fact that his suspension remains in limbo.

If Meyer's input does not factor in Thomas' decision as he says, the tackle would have to meet with school officials this week to resolve his status for the LSU game.

There is speculation that Thomas could return for the game considering he practiced Tuesday and has already missed two games.

5 picks in five games this year, two taken back for a TD.
No other numbers on him, the article just says he's fast and can jump and that he's a good kid.

The article ticked me off a little though at the end when I read that USC came in a took one of Nease's OL'men. Meyer's doing a great job of keeping the kids close, but the OL could use someone good enough for an offer from USC.

Thomas/Wynn/Harvin Update

http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061005/GATORS01/210050365

Something seems really fishy about this whole Thomas deal.


Thomas readies for return
Two injured standouts may be OK for LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University)
Although senior defensive tackle Marcus Thomas remains under indefinite suspension, it appears the coaching staff is getting him ready to play for when he is reinstated.

Thomas, who failed two drugs tests this summer, stayed on the practice field with his teammates for the duration of Wednesday's workout. At the end of practice, while his teammates filed out of the main practice gate, Thomas exited a side gate and was driven in a cart back to the locker room. He was wearing a white jersey, the same color the veteran defensive players wear in practice.

Good Running Back News

In Wynn's absence, sophomore Kestahn Moore has moved up as the starter at tailback.

"Moore has had a very good week and so has (true freshman) Brandon James and Markus Manson," Meyer said. "Manson has done a nice job. We'll be ready to go (at tailback)."

These guys took a sod pallet (for you city folks, thats the wood that pieces of sod comes on) to gameday. They had a guy wearing just shorts paint his entire body... head to toe... GOLD. The drew an "8" on his chest (in this case we would do a 12 for leak), gave him a gold painted football, lifted him above thier heads standing on the pallet, and had him do the hiesman pose staring straight at the camera for like 10 minutes. It was legendary.

Ocaligator has volunteered to resurect this display in honor of Chris Leak.

I have ordered the leather helmet from a company in Texas and we are going to paint it bronze and put the F on the sides.

We have the bronze body paint and a UF wrestler Leak look-a-like to be our "statue". He is bringing 6 of his friends to hold up the pallet that will also be painted bronze.

Or at least trying to. I think he should point out the mid season swoon the basketball team had. (when they started to believe their press). Once they got back to working hard and not reading the papers is when they made their run. Then remind them there is no playoff in FB, so don't swoon!!

Leak is putting up his best numbers under Urban and Tim Tebow is icing on the cake. Having Thomas back in the lineup was a big part of getting the W because we had our pass rush back. He should also help against Auburn's run game

As far as getting through the schedule, if they do make it all the way, I will dub Florida '06, one of the greatest teams in history...But I do not want to get ahead of myself.

Auburn is next and they have a lot of chalkboard inspiration (A loss at home against Arkansas, near loss to the cocks, and talk about LSU being a better team than Auburn) to come at us hard next week. These 2 next games for the Gators may have gotten even tougher due to both teams losing this past week (Auburn and UGA), but if we beat both, it will be cruise control to the SEC championship against Arkansas and an easier track to the NC game.

He was supposed to be the end all for FSU, but hurt his knee. Very similar athletically to Tebow, and he ended up being a fullback, and could have played LB.

So far, so good for Tebow, though.

No, Tebow was. He's quite the gym rat. He enrolled in the spring so he could participate in Springs practice. When he got to school he started working out with Brandon Siler (MLB) and DeShawn Wynn (RB) and got huge. Meyer stepped in and had the Strength Coach adjust his workout routine and diet to keep him down around 230-235 range. :D

Herbstreit said Florida and with their schedule, even though he doesn't think they will, if they run the table they shouldn't be worried about #1 because they should be the clear cut #1.

May then says if they played each other that Florida would have no answer for USC's receivers and the Gators D isn't that good. WTF?

I cant stand May, he has been on USC's jock all year and refuses to admit that they might not be what they were the last couple seasons. I love watching Lou Holtz say Cal and ND will beat USC :) May would rather spit on his mother than give ND props so Holtz being a homer balances the show.

I'm biased though, anyone who hates ND and loves USC cant be someone I like.

Behind the play of its secondary, Florida is tied for third in the country with 11 interceptions, and has allowed just four passing touchdowns in six games. It's a big reason why Florida ranks second in the nation in scoring defense at an average of 9.5 points per game.

I don't have a problem with people doubting the Gators. But to say their defense isn't that great when they are now the 2nd ranked scoring defense in the nation is just ridiculous. I'll be the first to tell you there is plenty of football left and I'm not getting my NC hopes up.
