“Pretty cool, innit it?”

With Florida’s win in Baton Rouge yesterday, Jim McElwain became the first coach in SEC history to take his team to the championship game in each of his first two seasons.  So you’ll have to forgive him if he’s a little pissy about the backstory to yesterday’s game.

Cue the theme to The Twilight Zone.

Wait a minute…

Georgia players escape being busted for a game and a Gator won’t be making the trip?  What universe is this, anyway?

Danielson on the Cocktail Party

Gary Danielson certainly has his share of flaws, but I appreciate his game analysis.  Here are a few early observations he has about Georgia-Florida.

He sure loves Eason’s arm.

He’s right that neither of these offenses qualifies as dynamic.  Barring a weird turn of events — my usual caveat about turnovers applies, as always — this won’t be a high scoring game.  Can the Gators shut Georgia out, though?  I guess that’s up to Jim Chaney.

Florida has those terrific corners, so I expect to see plenty of single coverage.  That’s a recipe for disaster if the Dawgs decide to come out in power formations and run the ball, because it’ll be an invitation to throw those safeties into run support and clog the line of scrimmage, something that’s been a winning approach throughout the season for opposing defenses.

Of course, with the way this season has gone, Chaney will probably find a way to do just enough on offense to have the game come down to special teams play.  Winning!

“That’s not what we want Georgia to be all about.”

You’ve come a long way from the Celebration, baby.  Though I’ll believe it when I see it.

“Are you trying to lead me in to saying the word?”

Uncle Verne, for the win:

“Verne, what’s that game called?” analyst Gary Danielson asked during an in-game promo during the CBS SEC broadcast over the weekend for this Saturday’s game.

Lundquist, retiring from calling football after this season, referred somewhat off script that it used to be called: “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.”

Danielson replied: “Last year, what can they do to you?”

“What are they going to do fire me?” Lundquist said.

Now if he’ll only say something derogatory about Michael Adams this Saturday…

“Other than that, we’re in pretty good shape.”

What’s the over/under on how many of Florida’s defensive starters nursing injuries don’t return this Saturday?
