Congratulations to the Florida Gators – the players, coaching staff, and the fans – for a thorough whipping on the rival, the Georgia Bulldogs with a 49-10 score. Guess what? Tim Tebow just scored yet another touchdown!
No excess celebrations. A lot of excess incompetence demonstrated by the Georgia Bulldogs’ offense, defense, and even the special teams.
Gators fans appreciates the Bulldogs defense for laying down and assisting Tebow getting his name back into the Heisman Trophy discussion along with Percy Harvin.
I expect Florida now will play Alabama in the SEC title game. That winner will probably play Texas (if they slide by Texas Tech) of the BCS title game. If not, Penn State will be there.
As a Georgia Bulldogs fan, I painfully admit that UGA is a top, second tier team and not an elite college football team. Both Alabama and Florida exposed Georgia as frauds in the national title picture.
Yes, preseason polls are as good as toilet paper and the only poll that really matters is the final poll in January.
Georgia’s next opportunity to become an elite NCAA football team will be 2009, if Matthew Stafford (1) returns for his senior season and (2) improves his performances in games that matter the most.
Coach Mark Richt is a great coach and an awesome human being, but his choice of an early onsides kick that failed was one factor that set up his team to lose and to lose badly.
I won’t be surprised if an improved Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets squad defeats Georgia. I wouldn’t consider it an upset at this point.
Let’s not discuss Georgia’s placekicker’s “issues” with field goal attempts. Pitiful.
Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford, after playing like a prime time player in the LSU victory, took ten step backwards in the showdown versus the Gators. Against Florida, Stafford lacked field vision, often forced passes into double coverage, and threw numerous, needless interceptions. Stafford led zero touchdown drives. That is inexcusable. Did Stafford lose some of his NFL stock?
At least forgotten backup Joe Cox, who never lost a high school game at Independence High School in Charlotte, NC, led the offense on a touchdown drive.
Stafford proves again that he is no Real McCoy. The Real McCoy is Colt McCoy, quarterback of the Texas Rangers, who plays at a high level consistently in this 2008 season. While Tebow does not have the traditional quarterbacking style that predicts NFL potential and success, Tim Tebow is a real team leader and does whatever it takes to help his team win.
Georgia’s Swiss cheese defense laid down for Florida all day. What an embarrassing performance for Bulldogs’ fans!
At least in the Alabama loss, Georgia played a respectable second half. Georgia played horribly in all four quarters in Jacksonville.
Tim Tebow accounted for five touchdowns, Percy Harvin scored twice, and the No. 5 Gators thumped the Bulldogs 49-10 Saturday in one of the most anticipated matchups in the history of this storied rivalry.
Florida (7-1, 5-1) pretty much shut down Knowshon Moreno, took advantage of Georgia’s numerous mistakes and avenged last year’s 42-30 loss in which the brazen Bulldogs used a massive end-zone celebration to energize their entire team.
The Gators won for the 16th time in the last 19 meetings, and this one was one of the most lopsided of all the one-sided affairs. Florida’s largest margin of victory in the series was a 47-7 win in 1996.
