The formerly top-ranked Florida Gators fell to the No. 2 spot in the AP Poll following their 23-20 victory over the upset-minded Arkansas Razorbacks.

Based on the recent play of both the Gators and the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, Florida's drop should not be surprising at all.

Granted, the Gator defense has been nothing short of phenomenal this season, but the offense is struggling to keep pace.

The poor play of Tim Tebow and the offense has forced the defense to pick up the slack in 2009, a trend that Florida cannot afford to continue.

While the defense has only surrendered four touchdowns and an average of fewer than nine points per game, Arkansas proved that Brandon Spikes and Co. are not invincible.

However, despite its struggles, the once-explosive Gator offense has the ability to put up big numbers again this season.

There are four major issues for the Florida offense that can easily be fixed.

If Coach Meyer is able to solve and/or deal with these problems effectively, the rest of the SEC would be wise to take cover.
