LEXINGTON, Ky. — For all the wackiness of major college football over the last four weeks; for all the parity infecting (or invigorating) the Southeastern Conference; for all the commotion and demotion and promotion in the national polls; nothing has really changed for Florida.

The Gators, despite two losses, are in the same position today as they were before college football decided about a month ago to jump head first into a blender and hit frappe. Win out and Florida is in the SEC championship game.

The Gators knew as much before they even finished off Kentucky on Saturday. Florida beat the upstart Wildcats 45-37 but before the game was even over Florida’s SEC East Division rivals had already opened the door for another Florida run to Atlanta. South Carolina lost to Vanderbilt and Tennessee lost to Alabama. So, for one week anyway, Florida (5-2, 3-2 in SEC) is eyeing a straight line to it’s second straight BCS bowl game.

“We’re back,” Florida receiver Louis Murphy said. “I still feel like we shouldn’t have lost to LSU. I know that’s what’s in my head.

“We should have beat them and we came out today and showed that we could beat Kentucky. I think we’re bouncing back and we’re going to go on a nice big run.”
