Mississippi State pick-six highlights a difficult first half for UF's red zone offense

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Oh, boy. It might be a long night.

Mississippi State back-up free safety Johnthan Banks returned a Tim Tebow interception 102 yards for a touchdown with 27 seconds left in the first half on Saturday at Scott Field to cut UF's lead to 13-10. The interception came three plays after UF's Chris Rainey blocked his second punt of the season.

The punt gave UF excellent field position-- the State 7 with one minute left in the half -- but UF failed to convert. UF was 0-4 on converting red-zone opportunities into touchdowns during the first half. That statistic is much more than a trend for the Gators' offense, it's a problem. In four and half Southeastern Conference games, UF is 6 of 24 in converting red-zone opportunities into touchdowns. You read that correctly, 6 of 24!

TWO PICK SIX'????

Joe, let's drop the love for the "Thundercat" and just start calling for Adazzio's head, mmkay?

hey Jo are you sure you didn't step on a MSU player when you got out of your car the other day? Tebow shatters rushing record next week vs UGA

Cant wait till Teblow plays the CANES for the NC

Canes for NC????? Hmmm

I can't wait for Tebow to play tight end in the NFL and then maybe the Gator offense will not be so pedestrian
Sarasota, you guys kind of lost last night

Notice Sarasota Cane isn't on the blog today talking trash..hmmm nothing to say. Think the loss yesterday says it all. Goooo Gators!!
