This is just the seventh time since 1996 that Florida has passed for 350+ yards and rushed for 250+ yards in the same game. Florida is one of five FBS teams to accomplish this feat in 2022 and one of two teams
(Appalachian State) to do so in each of the last two seasons (Florida vs Samson 2021).

Ricky Pearsall’s 76-yard TD run is the longest rush by an FBS WR this season and is tied for the third-longest run by a UF wide receiver in the last 25 years. This was the longest since Josh Hammond’s 86-yard TD rush vs. Kentucky on Sept. 14, 2019.

NOTE:
A "special combined edition" of Gator Breakdown is airing on YouTube, Twitter and elsewhere right now--and it is actually one of the standout episodes, I think.
It is half-over now in its first showing, but you can of course catch it now on Twitter or simply watch it from the start anytime on YouTube.
I recommend this one for the further, in-depth discussion of all the things WE have noted along the way here before, during and after the game--and a few things we didn't really get to but bear noting.

I KNEW this one reminded me of a Spurrier-era game! (I even repeated that SS-line DURING the game : "...Hung half a hunnert on 'em!")

I can't believe the Defense allowed 400 yards against that team.
This defense featured a lot of new faces. We need these new faces to step up as we enter the SEC gauntlet. The defense was pretty good against Utah and even Kentucky, but not so good after that. There is no guarantee that fresh blood will fix the defense, but it might help.

Good "Point/Counter Point", guys.
BOTH of these are valid.
This season, in case anyone hasn't gotten it by now, is all about the PROCESS of "learn and grow"...
See it that way, and it at least all becomes more understandable--if not outright more BEARABLE.
And THAT makes all the subbing in "new guys" in the 2nd half yesterday that much more HOPEFUL a SIGN...not just OF that "learning and growing", but that it will pay off--and possibly sooner than expected. MUCH SOONER.
Like "in the course of this SEASON" sooner, folks.
Which in turn COULD mean our reassention among the CFB "Elite" just MIGHT potentially manifest a year EARLIER here after all!
No promises. Just settle back, wait and SEE.
Things are simply percolating along now...
All WE can do for the moment is just give it space, room to do its thing.
