Florida Opens As a 4.5 Point Favorite


Underdogs (Via GatorCountry)

According to our own Matt Jones on twitter, Florida has opened as a 4.5 point favorite over the Cats for this Saturday’s game. I guess when you have won 28 games in a row over your opponent Vegas will tend to give you the benefit of the doubt. Still, I doubt anytime over those 28 years the spread was as close as this one. The Cats were underdogs last night against the Gamecocks and managed to come out on top. I got a feeling they will do the same this Saturday under the lights of the new CWS.

What do you think of the close spread?

    Lets remember this record of loses should have been broken last year but that no call/ missed call screwed our Cats out of that game.Maybe it’s me but in last nites game both that holding call in the pass and the failure to call an late hit out of bounce after calling one on the Cats didn’t add up. I wander whom the Refs were for last nite .I guess to be honest after these bad and no call may this win so sweet and it being Steve S. team was the best.Matt i hope someone reminds the Cats of that no call last year that cost us the game.It is so nice to see our football program moving in the right direction . I know the Brooks years were good too. But to have the interest in our program by top players year after year is beyond what we have seen in the pass.We need this win agaisnt Florida to open doubters eyes as to what direction this program is going. Add an win over Tenn later and the statement is clear.

      The fact we let Robinson catch for more yards in one game than he probably has in total since { more than he possibly has in his career}, the fact we drop an easy int {probably pick 6} had much more to do with us losing the game. We sound so stupid to say that 1 second lost the game, all we had to do was knock the pass down. The 1 second had nothing to do with the fact we did not make the play. Plus even IF they did back them up 5 yards there is no way of knowing if we would have stopped them on the next play, we did not stop them on that play and many others. Have heard enough about that stupid 1 second. And talking about the USC game refs, you sound more stupid…..2 of our touchdowns could have been called back but the refs missed it, can’t see everything. Keep wandering Bob and maybe you will get there.

      I don’t like to look backward at games and have too many what ifs so i won’t dispute either of your points, but I do believe this team will score plenty on Florida next week, and if we can pressure up the middle on D I am confident we can win the game. Cats by 10 in a game that isn’t that close. It’s a BIG coming out party and announcement that we can compete in the East. SEC isn’t as out of reach this year, and we have plenty of playmakers on both sides of the ball.

      GBB – it’s possible!

      “Probably not”, you make some good points however, the 1 second difference would not have backed them up 5 yards. The game would have been over because time expired on the game clock not the play clock. Also, you can make an argument without calling people stupid. It actually says more about you than the person you make reference to.

      Professor, you need to study up on college football. The fact of the matter is there is no game clock in overtime, only a play clock. So yes the delay of game penalty would have resulted in a 5 yard penalty and a repeat of the down. There are many reasons we lost that game, the one that really bothered me at the time was the fact that CMS seemed to slowed the team down on our final possesion in regulation. Towels was actually moving the ball well, and the staff took their foot off the gas. Play the game to win, not to go to overtime…especially in Gainsville.

    The spread sounds about right. Will likely drop to 3.5 or 3.0 before kickoff.

    Florida still has the overall “talent” edge on the Cats, but by considerably less so than the past. Coupled with a home-field advantage and the “transitions” that the Gators are currently undergoing, it should be a 7-point-or-less outcome either way.

    The Cats’ offense will need to be just as efficient as they were in Columbia (4 for 4 in the red zone) and eat more second-half clock to keep the defense off the field.

    If we can just go 1-1 over the next two weeks, we’ll go bowling, I think.

    If we will play the 2nd half like the 1st (last two games) there are very few teams that should beat us.

      Leuther, how does it feel to be 0-2? It’s been a while since we’ve been there. Refresh my memory. No really, go ahead.

      Careful, Leuther. I know it’s been a tough weekend for you, being 0-2 and the third best team in the state, but your emotional outbursts are exposing your true colors (that are obvious to everyone on this site). 😉

    Professor it would have NOT been the end of the game. It most certainly was the play clock that expired because we were in overtime and there is no game clock in overtime. So apparently you aren’t a very good “Professor”

      Thanks, I knew that but was not going to waste the time to respond as obviously they knew nothing about the situation. The Professor, probably from Louisville based on the comments. I called Bob stupid, nope I said he sounded stupid, based on his use of words….he wanders instead of wonders and the many other stupid words used.
