    Welcome to the 96th edition of the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party! The #8 Georgia Bulldogs enter this neutral-site game as 6-point favorites over the #6 Florida Gators. The Dawgs have won two in a row and have a 60.9% chance of winning according to the ESPN FPI metrics.

    The Dawgs lead the all-time series 51-43-2, with a 2-game winning streak under Kirby Smart. Georgia's offense is ranked #11 in the nation; Florida's is ranked #19. The Georgia offense favors the run in 60% of their plays, but they are averaging 234.4 YD passing and 236.9 YD rushing--against zero top-25 defenses. South Carolina and Notre Dame each held Georgia to 4.7 YPC and 175 rushing YD. The Georgia defense is ranked #4; Florida's is ranked #17. Georgia holds opposing offenses to 181.0 YD passing and only 85.7 YD rushing--with their only top-25 offense being #22 Notre Dame. Georgia has not yet faced any other top-50 offense!

    If there were ever a year where the Gators should win despite being the underdog, this is it. Florida has a healthy Greenard and Zuniga on defense, and Toney on offense. I expect Georgia to play better than they have earlier in the season, but not enough to overcome a healthy Gator team. I predict a 31-21 victory for the Gators.

    Here is a snapshot of the Georgia Bulldog season this far:
    • @ Vanderbilt 30-6. UGA 156 YD pass, 323 YD rush. Vandy 109 YD pass, 116 YD rush.
    • vs Murray State 63-17. UGA 292 YD pass, 269 YD rush. MSU 261 YD pass, 23 YD rush.
    • vs Arkansas State 55-0. UGA 388 YD pass, 268 YD rush. ASU 177 YD pass, 43 YD rush.
    • vs #7 Notre Dame 23-17. UGA 187 YD pass, 152 YD rush. ND 275 YD pass, 46 YD rush.
    • @ Tennessee 43-14. UGA 288 YD pass, 238 YD rush. UT 273 YD pass, 70 YD rush.
    • vs South Carolina 17-20. UGA 295 YD pass, 173 YD rush. SC 155 YD pass, 142 rush.
    • vs Kentucky 21-0. UGA 35 YD pass, 235 YD rush. UK 17 YD pass, 160 YD rush.
    Here is a snapshot of the Florida Gator season this far:
    • vs Miami (neutral) 24-20. FL 254 YD pass, 50 YD rush. UM 214 YD pass, 87 YD rush.
    • vs UT Martin 45-0. FL 312 YD pass, 231 YD rush. UTM 140 YD pass, 54 YD rush.
    • @ Kentucky 29-21. FL 300 YD pass, 138 YD rush. UK 267 YD pass, 140 YD rush.
    • vs Tennessee 34-3. FL 313 YD pass, 128 YD rush. UT 151 YD pass, 88 YD rush.
    • vs Towson 38-0. FL 262 YD pass, 160 YD rush. TU 183 YD pass, 65 YD rush.
    • vs #7 Auburn 24-13. FL 266 YD pass, 132 YD rush. AUB 145 YD pass, 124 YD rush.
    • @ #5 LSU 28-42. FL 311 YD pass, 146 YD rush. LSU 292 YD pass, 218 YD rush.
    • @ South Carolina. 38-27. FL 200 YD pass, 154 YD rush. SC 170 YD pass, 217 YD rush.
    Georgia has slightly better performances against common opponents Tennessee, South Carolina, and Kentucky. Here are the total yardage ratios:
    • UFL vs UT ratios, SC, UK: 1.85, 0.91, 1.08
    • UGA vs UT ratios, SC, UK: 1.53, 1.58, 1/53
    • UFL - UGA ratios: 0.31, -0.66, -0.45
    The scoring ratio comparison merely shows that Georgia performed better statistically against common opponents, despite Georgia having a loss in a game where they statistically outperformed the opponent 1.53:1.

    Whoever wins this game wins the SEC East. Really hoping it's the Gators. Also, I want another crack at LSU.

    What this tells me is that Gator QBs can perform well for half a season before injuries or steroids, or when being coached by a good QB coach (at Florida or elsewhere after transfer).

    Throw away the stats. They SAY that we go down. Throw away recruiting rankings. Same deal.
    I don’t KNOW what’s gonna happen in this one—but this one’s a GUT -game—and MY “gut” tells me we can take this one.
    I MEAN that. The analytics be DAMNED! With our defense ESPECIALLY getting fully healthy at the right time, and just enough “extra-added” returning to the fold on offense, and Kyle Trask deeply slumbering his way past midnight into pumpkin PARADISE somewhere over the rainbow, at this point I’ll actually be surprised if we DON’T win.
    How bout THAT?!!
    Mr Bummer, “glass half-empty” “they’re out to screw us!” “DRU2012” (ever THINK about that handle?) is sticking his neck out here and now, of all times and places...
    If I’m wrong, I can easily go back to being “the voice of doom”, after all.
    But sometimes, there comes a time...
    GO GATORS!!!

    I can’t WATCH anymore “buildup”;
    It. Just. Doesn’t. Matter.
    Far as I’M CONCERNED, this one is decided NOT out there on the streets in front of the hype and the cameras;
    NO! It is already being confronted in the motel parking lots and back alleys of Jacksonville! We’ll see the RESULTS of that contest on CBS in the 4th quarter!
    See y’all there—and GO GATORS!!!!!!!!

    Sure do.
    Came out flat, sorry to say—I wmexoected them to be ready for this one...Knew this’d be a close one, given the two teams’ nature’s—and a “3-zip” deficit was somewhat to be expected...I woulda picked our reptiles to rally and keep it close there; that they “gave when it counted” instead is a bad sign: Maybe we don’t HAVE it after all...and if a field goal is all we can respond with NOW, of all times, frankly is just “more of the same: we have GOT to get this thing KNOTTED before the Half—period.

    Let us simply concede that this team was NOT READY TO PLAY TODAY—and STILL HASN’T awakened!
    This is one where Dan Mullens MUST begin with himself and his staff when analyzing what happened here.
    Unless there is a MASSIVE adjustment that TURNS THE WHEEL AND TURNS THE WORM HERE, y’all can FORGET whatever magic we might have seized from thin air THIS season and begin to assess WHERE WE ARE HEADED AFTER ANOTHER “PRETTY-GOOD-BUT-NO-CIGAR”-SEASON LEAVES US WASHED UP ON “Pat ourselves on the back”-Beach once more.
    Frankly, that first half was practically unwatchable, and either we turn this one around PRONTO or I personally WILL NOT be watching this one into the 4th.
    I am SICK OF “being almost ready”.

    ...Oh, we are going to do incrementally better as far as our overall record will reflect: We won’t “lose TWICE” to UGA this time...If we play with any pride at ALL WE WILL WIN OUT AND GRAB THE TOP “ALSO-RAN BOWL”-placement—but SO WHAT???
    This was the year for us to seize the SEC East—anything less is slipping back to the pack, to mediocrity.
    How about bringing in Jones for this quarter? Yes, the officials are messing with us, but that’s not why we are down—that is all on our once again moribund offense AND Defense. Nothing from our star rushers; they are back, but they aren’t BACK, ya know???

    Oh, that does it...if THAT’S a catch I give up (they gave them that last one—they will give him this one too).
    Forget it, boys: unless things change drastically and soon, we will NOT be coming back. Up to our D right now—and they are DEPRESSED.
    We just folded for this one; they score here, it is over. (and Mullens’ off field comments after the half were LAME...:
    “I think we ‘re ok...we’re playing about as well as we can...I feel good...”
    If that’s the case, Dan, just wave the white flag, boyo...

    Trask finslly looking like a “freshman”...HAD to throw that away!
    That was our last chance, boys: The carriage turned into a pumpkin back in the first half, and, well, you know the rest of the story—only there’l BE no handsome princes coming around to fix everything after it’s all over.

    What I don’t get is why we don’t give Emory a try??? Kyle is having a bad day—there’s nothing else to say about it!
    Give Emory a shot...It is the only possible “magic” we might have left—and boy do we NEED IT—if not for THIS season, then looking towards the NEXT!!!

    Aw, I am not gonna watch anymore of THIS. We are already beaten: “Beaten in our heads since early in the game”.
    Dan, it is tome to look to the future:
    PUT IN EMORY JONES.

    If Jones gets his shot, I will watch...if not, I will not be back. COACHING LOST THIS ONE, my friends.

    Pathetic. Yeah, no td, but only cause they blew that play. We are already besten—you all can see it as well as I can.

    What a monumental let down by BOTH COACHING STAFFS, offensive AND defensive.

    We still are actually within striking distance—IF we had any offense!
