A look at the Troy Trojans...
Florida Today asks the question that is now on every one's (well, at least my) mind; Is Troy going to be Appalachian State?
Troy is a decent team. They lost last week to the Fighting Darren McFaddens 46-26 last week. And last season they played FSU and Georgia Tech tough. Of course, Troy will try to use their history of playing top teams close, but I think LB Marcus Richardson is giving his team too much credit.
If the Gators lose to these guys, I'm having a panic attack. And there will be no Alligator Army Tailgate next week in Gainesvegas. Thankfully, Urban is looking out for my health.
Troy is having some trouble on special teams. While punt coverage was good, the punting overall was uneven, and they allowed a 90 TD return versus the Razorbacks.
In that same article, it is reported that QB Omar Haugabook is a little banged up. However he is well enough to play Saturday.
Florida's prep for Troy will involve looking at a 4-3 front and a spread attack that is more pass than run. Of course, this happens as CB Markus Manson is wheeled off the practice field with a sprained ankle. Markihe Anderson, who missed the Western Kentucky game, may see time Saturday as he recovers from a bum knee. Meanwhile, I'm looking to see if Ryan Smith might have a year of eligibility left.
