The 2010 Florida Gators football season sure did go downhill quickly didn't it? This is a season we just need to get through, put behind us and move on. The Gators lost to Mississippi State on Saturday, our Homecoming Game, in embarrassing fashion by a score of 7-10. "We're not very good right now," said Urban Meyer following Florida's loss. We have now lost 3 in a row, including 2 at home ... yet somehow still have a chance to win the SEC East and play for the SEC Championship.
The Bulldogs got out to a quick 10-0 lead and kept it through the first half. The Gators just couldn't get anything going offensively - it didn't help that Andre Debose, someone I had high hopes for, left the game in the second quarter on crutches with a high ankle sprain. That combined with extremely poor offensive line play had the Gators playing from behind the entire game. We finally got on the board near the end of the third quarter on a 5 yard run from Omarius Hines.
This was a weird game all together though. The Gator defense didn't play all that bad (you'd think if you can hold an SEC team to only 10 points that it would be good enough for a win). The Bulldogs only completed 4 passes the entire game for 33 yards. However, the rushed the ball at will on the Gators 49 times for 212 yards. The Bulldogs never turned the ball over and kept the lead in time of possession.
The Gators looked like they were going to take the lead late in the 4th, but Demps fumbled the ball near the 10-15 yard line - something the Gators haven't been able to get control of the entire season. Hines led the Gators in rushing with 6 carries for 58 yards and a touchdown. Frankie Hammond Jr. led the Gators in receiving with 5 receptions for 69 yards.
From here we have a bye week, then head to Jacksonville for the annual Florida vs. Georgia game.
