The first tailgate of the season is one of my favorite days of the year, especially when the weather turns out as nice as today’s looks to be.
And it’s even going to be better with this bad boy along for the ride.
One of the best, if not the best, warm weather beers I’ve ever drunk.
You’re Ellis Johnson and you know that Joe Cox is operating at less than 100%. Is there any way you’re not going to sell out to stuff the run until Cox shows you he’s a valid threat? Eight in the box, maybe even nine, right?
You’re Mike Bobo. You know that he knows. So you’ve got to do something to keep Johnson honest. Doesn’t that mean you’ve got to ditch the I and go with four receiver sets to back the safety out and give Samuel some room to run (not to mention give AJ single coverage to work against)? Or go to the wildcat to even up the blocking numbers?
You know, I was listening to yesterday’s ESPNU Podcast and came away with the impression that this weekend was chock full of games that would let us start taking the measure of a lot of D-1 teams – boy, have they been pumping Notre Dame at Michigan this week.
Then I took a look at today’s actual schedule. I’m a little underwhelmed, to say the least. If you stretch the concept to cover games like UCF at Southern Miss (and I do), there are maybe ten games that fit the bill. Maybe.
Of course, I could be missing what Troy will tell us about the Gators. You never know.
