Look I know that the first game against Miami(OH) was a disappointment , but you people need to chill, I'll tell you why. Look everybody for the last two days said ,'' you guys suck'', or ,'' ya'll offensive line suck balls'', and ,'' you guys gonna lose 3 or 4 games'', uh, no we not. Ok lets address the first issue the offensive line everybody keep talking about , look we didnt have an experience line out there, only James Wilson was starting at the same position he started last year out of the whole offensive line. Marcus Gilbert move from left tackle to right guard to fill in for Carl Johnson absence, and Mike Pouncey move to Center for his brother and he made some mistakes it happens people ,like you never had a bad day before. Our best offensive lineman in my opinion , Xaxier Nixon was also hurt and so was his back up Matt Patchan and Maurice Hurt was not there either so Jon Halapio took his spot and he was a freshman also. Look watch our offense dramatically change when we Carl Johnson, Xaxier Nixon , Maurice Hurt come back and we put Marcus Gilbert in his right position.
As for John Brantley , look he made some very good throws but the wide recievers drop the ball, like the one when Deonte Thompson drop the ball in the endzone. I just think he was too nervous it happens thats why I was happy we didn't play a good team first, but dont put all the blame on him he didn't get much help from the running game because the offensive line wasn't there either so it didnt open up the play action and all that other stuff they ran. Just look at 2008 for example we have the best offensive line in the country no one was missing so it open up the passing game that made Percy Harvin and Louis Murphy affective and even we didn't have Percy Harvin for the Alabama game in 2008 we still put up 30 because we hd an experience and talented offensive line that we run ran all over Alabama and that open up the passing game and that famous jump pass to Riley Cooper. Ya you can't win without a talented and experience offensive line, period.
Now as for our defense , I was really impress because we basically had a bunch of new guys and freshmans out there . Honestly the gators give me that since of last year Alabama team, the Crimson Tide offense wasnt that consistent till late, but they had alot of depht in the defense. Just like us we have a new offense that will get better and a very deep defensive talent with speed. So what if we gave up 12 points to Miami(OH) , Alabama gave up 14 points to a FIU team last year and last time I checked they the defending champions that everyone is hunting for . Look at this way we only allowed 4 rushing yards and Alabama was #1 at rushing defense and we gave up 208 passing yard and , Alabama gave up 214 yards to FIU last year and FIU was a really bad team last year they were 3-9 and we whooped them 62-3 but we were not that good as Alabama at stopping the run we allow FIU to get 53 yards , Alabama gave up 1 yard rushing against FIU. Thats why Alabama dominated the SEC because they can stop the run , what do SEC teams beat you with? Uh I'll tell you thats running the ball and if you can't stop the run you wont win. Do you now know why I compare this defense to the 2009 Alabama defense, if not, I'll explain it a little bit more.
We didn't have our hard-hitting , Will Hill , that didn't stop us. A true feshman came and took his place an play absolutely well he look like a linebacker. Now lets see we loss Brandon Spikes , lets see Jon Bostic took care of that he had 5 tackles and an interception and if anybody actually took the time to look at my ''Defense'' article Isaid that Jon is gonna surprise you gator fans this year. We lost Joe Haden but we have Moses Jenkins and Jeremy Brown , we see much of Moses , but Jeremy sure look fresh getting that interception. We had the most freshman play the first game then anybody in the nation which was 15 freshmans. Ole Miss had only 6 freshman play but they still lost to some FCS team that tells you alot about our freshmans, on defense our freshmens made 34 tackles out of our 65 total tackles . So chill because Urban Meyer said everyone will be back for USF except for Moses Jenkins , but I think we will be alright , so gator fans forget this game and get ready for a great future from the Florida Gators.
