GAINESVILLE -- Call me a pessimist, but I don't think Percy Harvin is going to play on Saturday. It's a simple question today, folks. Can Florida beat Alabama without Harvin?
The Gators will certainly have a chance. UF beat FSU 45-15 in the pouring rain and Harvin didn't catch a pass and only rushed for 13 yards on six carries. Who carries the load if Harvin can't go? UF coach Urban Meyer has talked about moving Louis Murphy inside to slot receiver and starting either David Nelson or Carl Moore on the edge. Nelson has improved dramatically in the last month and is now a viable full-time option for the Gators.
Sorry for the late post today. I had to drive back to Tallahassee this afternoon and pick up my car. (It broke down on Saturday in Tally ... in the pouring down rain.) Anyway, I crunched some numbers this weekend on the Gators' opportunistic offense and wrote about it in the newspaper on Monday. Here's the link if you missed it ... CLICK ME!
