From one of my favorite Gator blogs, Orange and Blue Hue:
… And for this squad, one Saturday lies circled on the calendar: November 1, 2008. When they travel to Jacksonville, they have the opportunity to exorcise the demons of last year’s loss to the hated Bulldogs. An SEC East title would be within striking distance. A national championship berth? Certainly plausible. Maybe even another Heisman on the horizon.
But with a loss, there will be talk of Florida’s lost swagger, of only two wins in the last five years. Fairly or not, critics could question Tim Tebow’s ability to lead a team to the promised land. Lindsay Scott’s ghost could haunt this team.
In a sense, the psychology of this year’s WLOCP is huge. I’m not sure it can be underestimated, in fact. It’s as big as the first games in the series that Spurrier coached. Win again this year, and Richt’s legacy as a head coach grows immensely – which is saying a lot for a guy who’s already accomplished much.
