Sunday Morning Comes: Florida

First off, let's give the credit where it's due. Florida was the better prepared, better coached, and hardest playing team on the field yesterday. In a season where Georgia has lived off of rushing the ball, special teams, and an opportunistic defense, they got what they needed to win from only one of those three things.

It is hard to understate the value of having David Andrews go down in the first quarter. Our offense looks very different without him the game, and even with him inured, but back in the game in the 4th quarter, we looked much more efficient at everything we wanted to do. That was an offense game changer. Give the offense some credit, even though we're not built to come back from that kind of deficit, we made a good effort at it.

Finally, Florida's offense absolutely handled our defensive line. I don't know if it's back to the drawing board for Pruitt and company or if it was just a bad game. I hope to rewatch it later on this afternoon. But it was clear from the drive that resulted in the fake FG TD that they were not afraid to run at our left side, and they did so with abandon. It looked like we didn't remotely consider the possibility that the Gators would install a simpler offense with Harris than they ran with Driskell.

I hate losing to Florida. We lost to the worst Florida team since Reagan was President. I've been worried about a rushing offense exposing us, especially if we weren't able to create opportunities and make that rushing offense play from behind. I thought that game would be the Auburn game. Instead it happened yesterday in Jacksonville.
