Louisville transfer Jonathan Greenard’s excellent Gators career continued Saturday when he batted down three passes at the line, forced a second-half fumble and had two tackles for a loss. Where would this banged-up Gators defense be without him?
It’s time to start getting concerned with Florida’s run game. The Gators averaged 2.4 yards on their first 26 carries last week and only 3.5 Saturday. Those numbers didn’t matter against Kentucky and Tennessee, but they’ll be fatal next month against LSU or Georgia.
I feared I was being harsh a few days ago when I said comparing Tennessee to the Titanic was unfair to the ship. After seeing the Volunteers in person, I now wonder whether I was still being too generous. The Volunteers are one of the worst Power Five teams I’ve ever covered.
