Mike Bianchi is annoying, and I'm semi-ashamed of myself for starting a post with those two words. However, he did deliver one of my all-time favorite lines when Florida beat Georgia in 2010.
Beating the Bulldogs is like riding a bicycle. The Gators never forget how to do it.
Florida's loss to Georiga in 2011 was only the fourth in the last 22 meetings between the teams. And considering the talent disparity on the two teams -- this was UF's fourth loss in a row; UGA went on to play in the SEC Championship -- the final score of 24-20 can almost be considered a moral victory for the Gators. But Will Muschamp is no Lane Kiffin. Florida doesn't play for moral victories.
Just for fun, let's take a look back at what made the 2010 game so freaking great.
But back to 2012. Georgia enters the season as the favorite to win the SEC East, and rightfully so. The Dawgs have the SEC's best QB, a nice group of running backs and a killer defense. Florida, on the other hand, has plenty of questions on offense, but the defense should be almost as good, if not better, than Georgia's.
So we could be looking at another classic. Despite Georgia probably being a better team (too many questions for Florida right now to say otherwise), the Dawgs certainly aren't strangers to falling way short of pre-season expectations.
Crazy things happen when Florida and Georgia meet, but it wouldn't be crazy if Florida upset SEC East-favorite Georgia in 2012.
