Regression to the mean is a beyotch, Gators.

The box score from yesterday’s Florida-Miami game is something to behold.  The Gators more than doubled the Canes in first downs, almost doubled them in total yardage, held Miami to 1-11 on third down conversions and ran up a ridiculous 38:20 in time of possession.

Unfortunately, Florida was also minus-four in turnover margin.  That tends to get you beat.

    Driskell showed us why the UF staff doesn’t throw the ball farther than 10 yards. It’s not a lack of WR talent or the O line giving Driskell time. Nope. It’s Driskell. Eventually he will make some bad throws and bad decisions.

    Florida has 6 weeks to sort things out. LSU folks. LSU. Gotta stay focused. Now, if the gatuhs want to drop a couple in the meantime, I’m fine with that. ;-)

  3. 3 straight years of pitiful offenses. They are so boring to watch on offense. Didn’t they hire the Boise State OC?

    Cue the “WAH-wah” trombone sound.

    Seriously, though, I do hope Florida finds some modest success to tide them over until Jacksonville. I want them to have just enough success that they don’t change a thing.

    You want that Gator offense in the game. You NEED that Gator offense in the game.

    Cue blaming the Florida’s offense instead of crediting Miami’s defense for the turnovers ( a familiar refrain to GA fans) in 3…2…1 .

    I just hope our defense figures it out before their offense does.

    I want to see Florida implode and the players quit similar to Auburn

      FU needs to be just good enough to not fire Muschamp for a couple more seasons so that recruits start to forget about them.

    I was expecting this post after that game yesterday Senator. You had been harping this all offseason and look what happened.

  9. What about the Gators going for 2 after their first score? What a dumb call by Muschamp. That put them down 8 for most of the game, a lead that felt insurmountable.

    I’d like some of that humble gator pie!

    Looking back , the best thing about this game was that Miami wasn’t very good. Florida didn’t lose to a good team like Clemson. It was a mediocre ACC team.

    Anybody seen Gator Mike?

    Sorry, Senator, but I have to correct your last paragraph. It should read:
    “Fortunately, Florida was also minus-four in turnover margin. That tends to get you beat. Praise the Lord.”

    It’s one thing to regress to the mean, but so far it’s been a regression to the other extreme for them. Here’s hoping they keep up the bad work.
