    The #10 Florida Gators are coming off a stinging 24-17 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs. The unranked Vanderbilt Commodores are coming off a 24-7 loss at South Carolina. The Gators check in at #10 in the first College Football Playoff poll with their SEC East title aspirations all but gone, but the Gators can finish strong and play into a New Year's Six bowl by winning out--starting with Vanderbilt. Florida is favored by 26 points, with the over/under at 48 points.

    The Commodores are among the bottom feeders in both offense and defense, and are down to their second-string quarterback, Deuce Wallace. The Gators need to come out angry and take out some frustration on the Commodores and work out some flaws before finishing out their SEC East schedule.

    Fun fact: the Commodores have 13 players from the state of Florida, with multiple athletes from St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale) and Cardinal Gibbons (Fort Lauderdale).

    Not that it really matters, but my score prediction is 32-10, Gators.

    More Jones. Less Trask.
    Sorry, but it is time to begin looking ahead.

    Too early to switch QBs. Trask is one of the top QBs in the nation, so only a fool would bench him.

    Snore...We are so much more talented than this Vandy team, but we are uninspired—again! We look like what our record indicates: Better than a lot of teams, but not elite.

    I’m not talking about how he is performing here and now. I am concerned we begin to look ahead...2 main considerations:
    (1) Trask is “fine”—good enough to get us about where we are now (and for all his “ok” moments, don’t tell me he doesn’t, in his own way, have as many “let down moments” as the player he replaced, Felipe Franks. He was a godsend in terms of saving SOME kind of season when Felipe went down, but NEITHER was or is going to take us where we aim to go). Which brings us to
    (2) Emory Jones: If we have “a future” currently at QB, it is Emory Jones—we not only need to keep him interested, we need to begin to more aggressively develop him.
    Now: tell me that these last few minutes of the 2nd quarter fill you with hope and optimism for the future of the Gator offense. “OK Won’t DO!”
    Our standards have GOT to be higher than this—and I don’t care WHO or WHAT you compare it to!

    I’m actually barely watching this now. We will win, albeit in uninspired fashion—but there will be no further sign of further development, or for that matter any real hope for or interest IN making that happen...With all the weapons already available on offense, the lack of interest in aggressively developing our best hope at QB concerns me.
    Mullens has forgotten more than I know about coaching college football, so I MUST be missing something.

    Are you watching the same game? Trask already has as many yards against Vanderbilt in the half as your buddy Joe Burrow had all game against Florida. No coach is going to pull starters in the first half. We will probably see Emory Jones in the fourth quarter if the offense keeps running on schedule.

    Finally got on track here.
    Now: Vandy cannot move the ball on our D. We are now up 4 TDS. Any objection, or arcane reason I cannot fathom why we can’t give Emory Jones the better part of a half in which to relax and operate? Of course, if the answer is, “‘cause he just hadn’t shown enough in practice, etc., well, then in the long run we really ARE in a bind, aren’t we?

    The site is lagging. Ignore duplicate posts. Too lazy to fix it.

    I guess our standards are different. I am looking towards our building a Championship program. I can see that we are not at all on the same wavelength here, so instead of arguing angrily I will concede that if season after season of “close, but no cigar” is anyone’s idea of satisfactory, we are THERE—but I gotta feeling there are a WHOLE LOT of Gators who feel EXACTLY as I do...
    Funny: I was under the impression that that was Mullens’ standard as well...hope that was no misperception on my part.

    Takeaways:
    1. Vegas points. The Gators covered the 48-point over/under and 26-point spread, and then some.
    2. Offensive football points. The Gators exceeded their 30.8-point game average and pitched their third shutout of the season (UT Martin, Towson, Vanderbilt). Florida totaled 560 yards of offense, including a 25/37 363 YDS 2 INT 70.3 QBR 165.9 RAT performance by Kyle Trask. Emory Jones threw a nice ball to Jacob Copeland in what could be a preview of next year's key connection. Trask and Jones completed 67.5% of their passes combined to 11 different receivers for 410 yards. The rushing offense is still alarming, considering the fact that the top 5 rushers were not running backs: Kadarius Toney 39 YDS, Emory Jones 34 YDS, Kyle Trask 25 YDS, Freddie Swain 28 YDS, Lamical Perine 13 YDS, Malik Davis 7 YDS, Nayquan Wright 6 YDS, Iverson Clement 5 YDS, Dameon Pierce 3. YDS. The Gators are outscoring all opponents 203-66 in the second half and 108-28 in the 4th quarter. The Gators have also scored > 24 points in 13 of 14 games (Georgia, 17 points). The Gators boast the #31 passing offense, #3 in the SEC.
    3. Defensive football points. The Gators kept Vandy below their seasonal averages of 17.0 PPG and 125.9 rushing YPG. The Gators bottled up Ke'shawn Vaughn and held him to 28 yards rushing and 14 yards receiving. Note 1: Trask rushed for 25 yards on a sprained knee. Note 2: Vaughn rushed for 56 yards last year against the Gators and had 75 yards receiving. Florida returned to form with its "havoc rate" by forcing 3 turnovers, including two interceptions by Dovovan "Stingy" Stiner, and a fumble caused by Mohamoud Diabate that was returned 80 yards by Jon Greenard. Diabate registered three sacks in relief of the injured Jeremiah Moon, who will be out for the remainder of the season. Shawn Davis registered six tackles (four solo), and a couple highlight reel gems.
    4. Special teams points. Evan McPherson missed a 40-yard field goal. Freddie Swain is consistent, but not flashy as punt returner. He averaged four yards per return in four attempts. Backup kicker Chris Howard made two PATs and now has 4 points to his career.
    5. Overall points. The Gators are now 41-10-2 all-time against the Commodores, including 22-2-1 in Gainesville. The Gators are 4th in the nation with 14 interceptions.
