I don't want the Gators to come into this game thinking they have something to prove. I think that is the recipe for a tight game. And, really after last week I can't handle another one of those.
I am sure offensively we will see a more aggressive set of plays. I look for Nelson, Cooper, and Thompson to have better games at WR.
I am also hoping that Meyer wants to give Omarius Hines more playing time. I think this guy has an Anquan Bolden type body and will be a nightmare one on one to bring down.
And, I am looking to see more involvement from our TE Hernandez this week. I understand he was a little under the weather last week.
At RB, I think we have a three headed monster like Alabama does. Maybe not as physical but, just as productive and of course, with more speed. I look for Demps, Rainey, and Moody to have big games.
I look to see more from the defense too. I think they were bold over on some plays against Tennessee. Coach Strong says it was poor tackling. Whatever it is or was I want to see a much stouter defense this Saturday.
And again this year, I think we have the edge on special teams. Brandon James will be the record holder before he leaves Florida and the SEC in kick returns...maybe the record holder before he leaves this game. He could break one but, if continues to give us good field position like he did in the Tennessee game that could be the difference in the outcome. Caleb Sturgis came along in the kicking game and hit three fields last week. I think that position is now stable.
All in all, I think the Gators have too much for the Wildcats to pull an upset.
I want a big win. I want no doubt from the people in Tuscaloosa and Miami or at least no argument that Florida isn't deserving of the #1 ranking. But, then I am saying I want them to prove something aren't I?
