    The Florida Gators come into this season looking to regain the SEC Title. Make no mistake about it folks, winning the SEC is the one and only goal of this team. Quarterback John Brantley is back, along with most of the offense. There are a few new faces on defense. Some of them will have to grow up fast if Florida is going to not only make it to Atlanta, but win there.

    Key Players (offense): John Brantley and the receiving corps. Brantley must minimize the interceptions (he threw 21 last year). If he can spread the ball around to his receivers, Florida will be very difficult to stop. Also, look for Chris Rainey to step into the "Percy" position and line up in the slot, at the X, and in the back field.

    Key Players (defense): The defensive line. This unit is lead by 3 guys who will play on Sunday - Jaye Howard and Omar Hunter are a load up the middle. Complementing them is true sophomore standout Ronald Powell. Florida's D-line must control the line of scrimmage with several early tests on the horizon.

    Offensive Playbook: Florida. Hopefully Brantley will shine in coach 2Bits' offense. Don't be surprised to see back-up Trey Burton get some carries, along with direct snaps to Rainey, Deonte Thompson, and HB Mike Gilislee.

    Defensive Playbook: 4-3. With the strength of this defense at D-line, look for Florida to play a lot of 7 man front with two safeties deep.

    Key Games: Miami, Tennessee, @Auburn, Alabama, @LSU, Georgia, @South Carolina,@Nebraska, FSU
