The total transformation of the Florida Gator football program in a just a year's time has been remarkable. Give head coach Will Muschamp all the credit in the world.
This time a year ago the Gators had just lost two straight games, to Alabama and and LSU and they lost badly in each of those games.
Now to think the Gators are the No. 2 team in the country is mind-boggling.
But you have to ask, have the BCS computers seen the Gator passing game?
Probably not, but a victory over LSU gave the Gators a huge boost statistically and perception-wise.
Yet, after the LSU victory, some readers of this website commented the Gators are not yet elite. However, after six games of the 2012 season the BCS computers, coaches and human pollsters believe the Gators are the second best team in the entire country. Better than an undefeated Oregon and better than an undefeated Notre Dame.
Those same readers will probably ask, again, have you seen the Gators passing attack?
Does it exist?
In the same tone he commented regarding the premature aspirations for Mike Gillislee's Heisman campaign (hashtagged on Twitter #Gilly4Heisman), Muschamp does not want the early BCS hype.
In fact he detests it.
"It has absolutely nothing to do with anything in our season right now," said Muschamp Monday.
But coach Muschamp is not a dumb man. He knows this is a BCS capable team, and an SEC Title is not out of reach.
"We have one goal, and that’s to play South Carolina on Saturday. Really nothing matters other than playing South Carolina and preparing ourselves throughout the week. It’s a long season."
