Florida dominating Kentucky 31-0 after 1st Q

GAINESVILLE -- Anyone still worried about an upset?

Florida dominated the first quarter against Kentucky on Saturday and finished the quarter with a 31-0 lead. It was a best-case scenario for the Gators, who entered the game with health concerns after several starters fell ill this week with flu-like symptoms, including quarterback Tim Tebow.

For some reason, I don't think Tebow is feeling too bad. He rushed for 79 yards on nine carries for two touchdowns in the first quarter. Running back Jeff Demps has 49 yards on five carries. Chris Rainey blocked a punt and recovered in the end zone for a score. For good measure, UF ended the first quarter with a 44-yard pass from Tebow to tight end Aaron Hernandez.

If you're counting at home, UF had eight rushing plays of 10 or more yards in the first half. Tebow completed 3 of 4 passing attempts for 75 yards. Running back Emmanuel Moody has 29 yards of total offense on two plays.

Jo, who is faster J.Demps or T.Holliday?

I hate the Gator's as much as the next UM fan, but I hope Tebow is OK! His neck got kicked really hard!

Mmmmmmmmmmmm, more humble pie? Yes please!

We are soooo three weeks ago!

Go 'canes!
