What’s Going To Happen
Well this isn’t working out all that hot for the Gators.
The booting of head coach Jim McElwain and the move to Randy Shannon led to a scintillating 45-16 loss to Missouri, followed up by a 28-20 loss to South Carolina that was only interesting thanks to a late desperate touchdown.
And now there’s a real, live danger of the season going totally in the tank against a UAB team good enough to pull this off.
Winners of their last there games and five of the last six, UAB is going bowling thanks to Spencer Brown and a running game that’s getting him 100 yards on a regular basis, and an offense that’s shockingly amazing at keeping the chains moving.
This might not be the most explosive team, and there are massive holes in some spots – mainly on special teams – but this is an efficient, smart squad that doesn’t make a whole slew of mistakes.
And then there’s Florida.
Are the Gators going through the motions until Chip Kelly arrives? Do they just want to play this out, get through the Florida State thing next week, and be done with all of this?
The O line is terrible, the quarterback play a mess, and the team just can’t seem to catch any break other than when Feliepe Franks is throwing deep balls in lost cause situations.
Even so, the defense will rise up when it absolutely has to in the second half, the second half will keep the Blazer passing game from finding a groove on third downs, and the linebackers will hold Brown in check.
It’ll be a battle, but Florida will at least get a win. However, all it’ll do is show how far the program has to go.
