In the season long college football tournament, sometimes it is all about survive and advance. Today was the day as the Florida offense decided to put the ball on the ground four times and the Florida defense was so worn down in the 4th quarter that they could not see straight. The Gators 23-20 win over Arkansas was not pretty and it may cost them the No. 1 spot, but that doesn't matter. Your boys are 6-0 and Pasadena is still an attainable goal. Arkansas gave us all we could handle and more, and they might be the most improved team in the SEC. But the Gators played like defending champions, unwilling (at least right now) to let anyone take their crown.
It's a lovely Fall evening in most of Florida, so go out tonight and toast Tim Tebow for still being willing to take over games, your defense for propping up their injured captain, Riley Cooper for continuing to hang onto his football career, and Caleb Sturgis, who shook off Chris Hetland-itis and won the game. You can start thinking about Mississippi State tomorrow.
