Granted, the Gators have an even more explosive offense and they also have the #1 ranked defense in the country. But have you seen the last couple games the Gators have played? They won, but not impressively and if not for a couple lucky calls, they might have at least one loss, maybe two! All I know is the Gators have not looked good and they could prime for an upset. The Dawgs have nothing to lose but a world to gain! They are not in the running for the SEC East or SEC title. They have already lost three games and aren’t ranked, but a signature win against the Gators on Saturday would be huge! It would help avenge last year’s whopping and get some revenge on Coach Urban Meyers he called two time outs in the last minute to prolong the agony for the Dawgs. Believe me, those time outs have stayed with the players and most everyone in the Dawg Nation!
On paper, the Gators should blow us out. But they play the game on the field and not on paper, so the Dawgs still have a chance. I am not naïve; I know the Dawgs are going to have to play an exceptional game in order to win. But a dawg becomes extremely scrappy when backed into a corner and right now I don’t see how we could be any deeper into a corner.
In case you were wondering, this will be the fourth time a Dawgs team has faced a #1 ranked Gator team. With one of the first three meetings resulting in a win, in 1985 the Dawgs upset the Gators 24-3! I was at that game and I am pretty sure no one was giving the dawgs a chance that year either. That is why it just might happen again!
