Kentucky's skill players, namely Randall Cobb and Derrick Locke, will probably run for enough yards to give you heartburn from your pre-game meal. The Gators defense has been fantastic this season, but they have not faced a singular talent like Cobb.

On offense, UF has to do something in the first quarter. Maybe it doesn't really matter, but it will if UK jumps out to an early lead or Alabama does the same next week. Because I'm a bleeding heart, I can't blame the players for offensive short comings. It starts with Urban Meyer and Steve Addazio. They realized last week that Jeff Demps needs the ball as much as his little heart can take. But they also need to let John Brantley open it up and allow Carl Moore, Deonte Thompson and the Omarius Hines Bandwagon make plays. It's great that Brantley has no picks. But I think part of that is due to the offense not taking chances. This is game four. Time to let the kids sink or swim.
