Week 12 Just when the Gators were riding on top of the world after being voted back to #1 in the polls, disaster strikes. The Gators knocked off visiting Miss St 28-3 but lost their star QB John Brantley for the season. He fell awkwardly after being sacked in the 2nd quarter and has a torn rotator cuff is the early reports. That means the Gators backfield is down to it's 2nd string now with Demps and Brantley both out for the season. The Gators had relied heavily on Brantley's arm and the WR corp to win games. Now the Gators will have to reevaluate their attack with redshirt freshman Jordan Reed going under center the rest of the way. Reed really isn't developed enough in either the passing game or the running game so the Gators may have to rely on their defense to win some ball games now.
