sniping teams i have attachment to is difficult at best, Joe... I like to think I'm reasonable. UT @ UF doesn't feel right to me. I expect it to be played tight- and just when i say that someone takes the scoreboard operator to task.
all the same, I expect UF by 10 (if not 14)- but i don't think it'll happen because of their O. QD, UT's QB, has a tendency to stare down passers and not check... i've seen him check off ONCE this season thus far... I've seen him throw into coverage (I'm NOT talking about one defender, either, but multiple) at least five times. I've made the comment each time "he won't get by with that against UF"... and i mean it. He won't. but, he's encountered nothing to discourage him from trying against the Sycamore's and the Jacket's. He threw two intercepts Saturday, but they were just boneheaded passes. all of this means, to cut to the chase: UF will have at least 14pts off t/o's, likely pick 6's. I don't expect any yardage for UT to come easy... I DO expect, however, that UT will get at least one score via special teams- a return either KO or punt. Fil-Aimes, Berry, or Calloway are all dangerous returners, even against the gator's.
