Battle of the Titans

Saturday’s Florida-Missouri game matches the two starting quarterbacks with the worst passer ratings in the SEC.  Should be epic.

      I’ll never cheer for the gators, but let’s just say the sooner Mizzou gets their 2nd loss the more breathing room we have.

    Given how poorly Tennessee’s pro team has drafted since Jeff Fisher left, we could call this “The Battle of the future Titans”.

    Look who has the highest completion % at 70%; now he has the least yards…but that is another debate.

      JT…That’s called having a great running game.

      Go take a look at the Boise State QB’s % when we played them in Atlanta. His were mostly over the centr for 5-10 yds, just like HM, but it was good enough to mention him in the Heisman runnng.

    It’s almost incomprehensible that Missouri vs. Florida can be more epic than LSU vs. Florida. But, in defense of The Driskeling, he has a higher epic Total QBR (45.9 / #12 out of 13) than Mauk (36.5 / #13 out of 13)

      That Eastern Michigan D can skew the results (plus that game vs UK where he had 3/4th of his pass yards because the ‘Cats couldn’t cover Robinson.)

    If Florida can get out of it’s own way, they’ll beat Missouri pretty good. Florida’s defense should make Mauk miserable. Also, I just get the feeling that Florida is hungrier than Missouri…there is so much fan pressure in Gatorland to win. I’m not sure Missouri has the same culture.

      No way! FU sucks this year! They only got by UK because the refs helped them. I’m convinced that if the pass into the endzone in the first OT had failed there would have been a pow-wow at midfield with Curles announcing that “there was no play as the clock had expired” before the snap, giving FU yet another chance at it.

    I could br wrong, but I don’t think Mauk’s rating was that bad prior to playing us.

  9. I’m more concerned with Kentucky in the east race. If the team we just beat makes it to the SEC championship then there is something bad wrong with all of us and I don’t want to be there anyway. I’m not interested in an east title banner just to get beat down in the SECC game.

      There is a chance Uk could, a big COULD, lose all of the rest of their games. As long as we beat them, I am not too worried about what else they do. I sure was glad to see them beat Spurrier though.

        +1. Kentucky is going to fall back to earth starting this weekend. It’s going to be tough for the Mildcats to get bowl eligible.

        We were the highest-ranked team they’d beaten at home since they took down Bama in 2010–when they also lost to UK.

    What’s interesting about those stats to me is how Dak is getting all the love, but Dr. Bo is statistically equal. In true Dr. Bo fashion he has 2 more INTs, but he has 1 more TD. The Egg Bowl could be classic, and five years ago if Ole Miss and Miss St. had been our rotating West opponents for this year, we would have been overjoyed. The times they are a changin’…

      Absolutely. What a year to be a college football fan in Mississippi, unless you root for Southern Miss. To my memory, we never had a situation like this in Georgia, even back when Tech was in the SEC. Anybody recall such dual success for the Georgia teams?

          But I do think that in the days of Bobby Dodd at Tech and in the SEC, there were a couple of high win numbers that met at the end of the year.

            I thought so, too, but then I went back and looked and found:

            Looks like a 7-3 record ain’t what it used to be. I remembered some of those as good teams.

    If UF loses to Mizzou after the way we killed Mizzou it will be Will’s Mississippi State moment. MSU got the Zooker and Mizzou will get Will. The UF fans are in tar and feather’s mood. Foley is loyal to a point and that point is when the fans start calling for his head.
