The Florida Gators are in a rut.
If losing three straight games for the first time since 1999 and dropping their first homecoming game since 1988 weren't enough, the Gators are also unranked for the first time under head coach Urban Meyer.
"We're not very good," said Meyer, stating the obvious after losing to Mississippi State 10-7.
However, despite Florida's struggles, they still control their own destiny in the SEC East race and going into a bye week, the Gators could very well turn their fortunes around.
Here's why Florida should be grateful that they get to lick their wounds this weekend.
