    When will the Gators gaze into that crystal ball again? Not if they can't find their man at QB.


    The Gators enter this season coming off their 2nd consecutive SEC Championship. "New look" is the term being thrown around by many around Gainesville. The Gators lost a host of playmakers on offense and defense to graduation and two others departed early for NFL riches. Gone is John Brantley who produced two SEC Championships after the departure pf Tim Tebow. His career may never get the respect it deserves because he had to follow up one of the best players in college football history. It's on to the next one though in Gainesville.



    Florida will use a two QB system for the beginning of the year. Jordan Reed and Angelo Crowell were rated as almost equals coming out of Spring Practice. Coach Meyer stated "We will run with both of em til we find a guy that wants to take the job and lead like Leak, Tebow, and Brantley have done. A lot of tradition at this position here. One of these guys needs to step up and take it."

    The Gators came out rusty and mangaed to beat Souther Miss 31-19. Southern Miss held the Florida offense to 204 total yards and to -28 rushing yards. The Gators must revamp their offense and get it going before they travel to Nebraska to play that great defense.

    On the first play from scrimmage All-Everything DE William Green sacked the S.Miss Qb. On the second play from scrimmage the Gators OLB crushed a crossing WR and put him out for 9 weeks. Next play incomplete pass which forced a punt when this happend.

    Andre Debose 81 yard punt retrn TD (my first one on this game).

    A. Crowell was able to find Desmond Parks twice for scores in the first half before giving way to Jordan Reed. Reed lost a lot of yards on offense today and may be taking a back seat to Crowell. He did manage to hit F. Hammond for a score in the 4th quarter.

    On defense the gators were led by brandon Beal and J. ross with double digit tackles. The most exciting player may have been dime back Keith Ortiz who had 5 tackles a sack and a pick on the last play of the game. He had a nice day covering kicks and punts and Meyer was heard praising him in the locker room

    Piss poor effort Crowell threw three picks first half . Reed stormed us back but with 8 drops and another fumble or two inside the 20 yard line you can't win. Their players broke 2-3 tackles sometimes to get first downs or scores. Oh well it's gonna be a f'n long season in Gainesville.

    The Gators got their medicine last week. They healed up got better and pulled off an upset in Lincoln, Nebraska.

    Florida 23 Nebraska 20

    This game was a defensive struggle with both defenses playing lights out, making big hits, and setting the tone on a rainy day in Lincoln. The Gators and Huskers would trade FG's early on.

    With the score 6-3 in favor of the Huskers, John Ross (Florida's player of the game) would pick off QB Spano and return it 25+ yards for a score. The Huskers would fight back and make the score 13-10 on a TD run by their RB making the score 13-10 Huskers. The Gators went on a methodical drive and Anthony Crowell moved them down the field hitting desmond Parks a few times and the drive culminated with a Crowell to Debose diving TD reception. Gators up 17-13.

    The Gators were able to get a stop and force a punt getting the ball back with 3:30 to go in the game. Mike Gillislee was able to grind the ball and clock. Crowell would have to throw the ball on two third downs to keep the drive going. Nebraska's D would stand up though and force a 3rd and long that the Gators threw an incomplete pass with under a minute to go.

    Urban Meyer knew it was time. The Gators picked up five star recruit Fontenot in the off season. Meyer said when he signed that Fontenot may be the most important signing because of the defenses that the Gators faced it was important to make drives account for something.

    Fontenot got his chance and bombed a 53 yard FG to put the Gators up by 7. Nebraska's coach used his time out wisely and gave his chance to tie with 50+ seconds left, it only took two plays as a Gator safety missed a tackle and the Nebraska Wr raced into the endzone with 30+ seconds to play. PAT good tie game! Who thought that 30 + seconds would be too much time. The Gators hit two post routes to get the ball down the field calling TO's after each. Then Crowell took the ball and centered it on the field on the Nebraska 33 yard line. Meyer waited to 3 seconds left to call his last TO.

    Fontenot would trot out onto the field the snap was good the hold was good and the kick . . . . . . was goooooooooooooooooood Oh myyyyyyyyyyy! Hold the phones there's a flag on the field. Running into the kicker on the defense penalty declined ball game.

    Fontenot hits two 50 yarders in the last minute to salvage a win for the Gators!

    Hey great game, that drive that chewed up most of the 4th quarter was real big, hitting that 50yarder was even bigger! I coulda sworn I had that FG blocked. (n)

    Florida 34 Tennessee 10

    The Florida Gators have won two huge games back to back on the road. After narrowly escaping Lincoln with a win, the Gators would go knocking in Knoxville. The Gators knew they could not turn the ball over and give All-Everything RB David Oku a lot of touches. Well, mission accomplished.

    1st Quarter

    The Gators received and drove the ball into the redzone. Anthony Crowell tried to force a post route that was not on time and was picked off. Tennessee would drive the ball for a FG.

    End of the first 3-0 UT

    2nd Quarter

    The Gators exploded for 21 points in this quarter. The Gators drove the field and Mike Gillislee punched one in from 5 out on 3rd and goal. On the ensuing drive Tennessee QB Rozier would take of against man coverage and instead of getting out of bounds he gets popped ball's loose Freshman McCoy scoops and scores it from 46 yards out. Big momentum shift.

    Tennessee would score its lone TD on a beautiful throw from Rozier to Rogers from 49 yards on a 9 route. with 42 seconds left to go in the half. Anthony Crowell was handed back the keys and drove the field and found Freddie hammond Jr. behind coverage for a 44 yard strike with 1 tick on the clock.

    Nukeese Richardson was an untied shoe string away from scoring the kickoff, luckily he tripped and the half was over.

    3rd quarter
    Mike Gillislee punched in his second TD on a 1 yard run

    4th quarter
    41 and 50 yard Fg's from Fontenot to put the game out of reach.

    Reserve Rb Barnes broke a run for 44 yards to put the Gators on the Vols 5 with 1 minute and some change left but Meyer sat on the ball and kneeled it.

    Tennessee was able to connect on 1 more deep pas to Richardson before he was ran down and tackled to end the game.

    Player of the Game

    Mike Gillislee 23car 145 2 TD
    season high 51 yard run

    A. Crowell 8 of 12 171 yards 1 TD 1 INT

    UF 38 UK 22

    Florida puts on a show on homecoming weekend in front of some blue chippers.



    The Florida Gators got started early cooled off and then mashed the accelerator again in the 4th quarter. Anthony Crowell had a career day passing for 283 yards and 4 TD. He did turn the ball over twice, but he showed alot of growth. On the first drive of the game he was able to hit Desmond parks for a 49 yard TD pass. After a UK FG set up by a Crowell Fumble in the opponents red zone. Andre Debose dazzled the crowd with a 99yard KOR TD. After the Gators traded TD's with UK Crowell was able to hit Debose on a 61 yard scoring strike with 34 ticks on the clock. The Gators have been able to beat the buzzer to end halves and in one case a game a lot this season.




    LSU TIGERS COME TO TOWN NEXT.

    The Gator defense found it's groove. UF 21- USCe 7

    The Gators defense held South carolina to 205 yards only 6 coming on the ground. The USC signal caller was 16-37 with a TD but was picked off twice. The lone TD came in the 4th quarter.

    The score was close because of 3 UF turnovers. The Gators only managed 65 yards on the ground. Anthony crowell was 21-29 1 Td i Int. He was sacked 4 times. Mike Gillislee managed only 59 yards on 27 carries but scored twice. TE Desmond Parks had another great game with 113 yards receiving.

    [​IMG][/IMG]

    Brandon Beal had the most stops with 6. william green had a sack as well as Omar Hunter (also had INT). T. Andrews had 3 TFL's but was lost for 10 weeks due to injury. next up for the Gators:

    Florida 24 Georgia 3

    The Florida Gators defense came up big. They were all over the field and contained UGA's passing attack enough to hold the #17 Bulldogs to 3 points. The Gators had constant pressure on the Georgia QB's (Aaron Murray knocked out of the game and is out for 10 weeks, sorry bout that Drunken). That pressure led to 5 interceptions. Coach Meyer was proud of the effort, "The defense had their best weeks of practice leading up to these two games and it showed. They prepared like winners and the outcome matched their efforts."

    Anthony Crowell continued to be effecient throwing 2 TD passes. He didn't try to force throws and hit the hot routes against the heavy Bulldog blitz.

    With the game 17-3 and very much undecided, Brandon Beal would pick off a pass and return it for a score which put a few nails in the coffin.

    Georgia was able to move the ball down the field into the redzone, but Beal would be Johnny on the Spot and come away with his second interception.

    The gators did receive a commitment following that game from an unnamed player.

    Florida disposes of Auburn and clinches the SEC East crown.

    Andre Debose took a KOR back.

    John Ross set the tone with a rib breaking hit to ff and the Gators would recover he would also have an interception in the 1st quarter.

    The Gator Oline struggled to give Gilleslee room to run and Crowell time to throw.

    Gators need a whole lotta help if they want to get in the BCS picture.

    Florida outlasts Ole Miss.

    Ole Miss outplayed Florida, there FG kicker would miss 3 fg's inside 40 yards on the day. That was the difference. Ole Miss was stingy on defense and held down Gillislee and the rushing attack. Crowell and Reed had some success through the air but also threw 3 picks or so combined.

    Andre Debose had a break out game catching 10+ balls and going well over 100 yards receiving. Desmod Parks caught another TD.

    L. Fontenot was able to hit a 17 yard FG as time expired to keep the Gators undefeated in the SEC.

    Florida also gained a verbal commitment from the top WR in the country.

    Florida finishes undefeated in the SEC (regular season) despite 2nd half collapse. After only allowing 9 first half points, Vandy would score 21 more and come within 8 points of the Gators.

    Anthony Crowell threw the ball well and Mike Gillislee ran with purpose.

    Parks, Hammond, and Lawrence all played well.

    Florida loses Thorpe Watch List Safety M. Williams for 3 weeks and hopes to have them back for the SEC Championship game.

    Florida wrapped up its season with an expected win against fsu qb Anthony Crowell threw for over 300 yards and multiple scores. Desmond Parks hauled in two td's to cement himself as the Mackey Award winner.

    Florida gives it away in the SEC Championship game.

    Florida rode the young QB's coattails to go undefeated in the SEC and notch a big win in Lincoln Nebraska.

    Anthony Crowell had a the confidence of his teammates and Gator Nation. Why wouldn't he, he led this team back to Atlanta to face the #1 Crimson Tide.

    However, the fairy tale ended last night. Crowell would come out hot hitting two deep balls to put the Gators up by 14 and then the interceptions happend. The early success gave made him and offensive Coordinator sdid overconfident. They tried too often to hit the big ones and it cost them a SEC championship. The turnovers killed drives and kept the Gators from putting the game away and in the 4th quarter it prevented them from tying the game.

    Next up for the Gators a rematch in the Fiesta Bowl against Nebraska.
