Many SEC commentators have said this in so many various ways:
"When Anthony Richardson has a good day, the whole Florida TEAM looks good!"
But that isn't necessarily the case--and the fact that UF doesn't necessarily WIN every time that happens (witness the Tennessee outcome) ought to be a clue to what we actual Gator fans already know from bitter experience:
It is our porous DEFENSE that in the long run truly stands between what is developing into a dominant, AR-led offensive juggernaut and competing for Championships.
OR, to put it another way:
Players do their jobs, defense at least holds its OWN, and we WIN some of these closer games (LAST season's game against Mizzou we LOST, 23-to-24, after all)--and the FPI numbers rise accordingly.
As a result then, the actual "cause-and-effect" flow can be interpreted to read in either direction.
