First, it was “the spread offense will never work in the SEC”.
Next, it was “the spread offense looks unstoppable – Tebow for Heisman”.
Last night it was 312 yards of offense and 17 points.
Ole Miss provided the template to defending Meyer’s offense. Last night we saw what happens when a team has the players on defense to implement the game plan successfully. That being said, we should be careful to read too much into the results from last night. How many SEC defenses combine great team speed with big tackles that can stand their ground and stop the run up the middle that’s the Tebow trademark?
Well, there is the one that the Gators will face this week in Baton Rouge. A second loss for the Gators would certainly make the SEC East race interesting. The key after that will be if there’s any other team in the conference that can pin that third loss on Florida.
One thing I’m curious about this morning – do you think the fans in Gainesville or Tuscaloosa are more bummed out from yesterday’s results? I’m guessing the latter.
