    It sucks losing a winnable game, but need I remind all three fans on this site (thanks, Mom) that pre-season pundits predicted this game to be a loss for the Gators. The statistics show that the defense is an absolute liability for the Gators. On offense, the Gators have the #3 most efficient offense in the nation this week, but the defense is #75 of 76 this week, #72 of 76 teams cumulative to this point!

    In terms of offensive efficiency, the rankings would be as follows (points per play):
    1. Alabama
    2. Coastal Carolina
    3. Florida
    4. BYU
    5. Texas
    6. Houston
    7. Virginia Tech
    8. North Carolina
    9. Ole Miss
    10. SMU
    The bad news is that in terms of defense inefficiency the rankings would be as follows (points per play allowed):
    1. Ole Miss
    2. North Texas
    3. Kansas
    4. Texas A&M
    5. ULM
    6. Missouri
    7. East Carolina
    8. Southern Miss
    9. Virginia Tech
    10. Navy
    11. Louisville
    12. TCU
    13. Temple
    14. FSU
    15. Vanderbilt
    16. Texas Tech
    17. Oklahoma
    18. Louisiana Tech
    19. MTSU
    20. Arkansas State
    21. South Alabama
    22. Western Kentucky
    23. Houston
    24. USF
    25. LSU
    26. South Carolina
    27. Charlotte
    28. Virginia
    29. Tulane
    30. Florida
    The combined offensive and defensive efficiency rankings are as follows:
    1. Georgia
    2. South Carolina
    3. Alabama
    4. Kentucky
    5. Tennessee
    6. Florida
    7. Mississippi State
    8. Ole Miss
    9. Texas A&M
    10. LSU
    The official NCAA statistical rankings for Total Offense in SEC are as follows:
    1. Ole Miss 2
    2. Alabama 3
    3. LSU 17
    4. Florida 18
    5. Texas A&M 19
    6. Mississippi State 25
    7. Georgia 34
    8. Missouri 36
    9. South Carolina 48
    10. Kentucky 56
    11. Tennessee 63
    12. Arkansas 66
    13. Auburn 67
    14. Vanderbilt 75
    The official NCAA statistical rankings for Total Defense in SEC are as follows:
    1. Georgia 2
    2. Mississippi State 12
    3. South Carolina 18
    4. Kentucky 23
    5. Tennessee 31
    6. Texas A&M 39
    7. Arkansas 43
    8. Auburn 48
    9. Missouri 53
    10. Vanderbilt 58
    11. Alabama 65
    12. LSU 71
    13. Florida 72
    14. Ole Miss 76
    All of this analysis really does show how much the defense is hurting Florida; however, there are some comparisons that show how there is hope for Florida. Texas A&M's schedule was front-loaded, so expect their statistical rankings to increase. Texas' talent and expected offensive/defensive performance are comparable to Florida's, and Texas's stats have gone from being top-3 to middle-of-the-pack.

    Florida will learn a lot about its ability to compete for the SEC East and a CFP playoff spot in its next two home games against LSU and Missouri--two teams heading in opposite directions--before the Gators meet up against Georgia in the WLOCP.
