Gators pull away late in the fourth quarter in Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Final
UF 31, UT 17
Great two-yard touchdown run by quarterback Trey Burton from the Wildcat formation. The drive was highlighted by an excellent throw on third down from Brantley to Carl Moore and a 16-yard rush by Demps.

UF 24, UT 17
Blown coverage by safety Will Hill led to UT touchdown, a 35-yard reception by Justin Hunter.

UF 24, UT 10
RB Mike Gillislee scored his second touchdown of the game on a five-yard run with 12 seconds left in the third quarter. The five-play drive was set up by an interception by UF cornerback Jeremy Brown.

JEREMY BROWN'S INTERCEPTION
Tennessee was driving when Brown jumped the route of Vols receiver Denarius Moore and intercepted UT quarterback Matt Sims at the UT 40. It was Brown's second interception of the season and the d

UF 17, UT 10
Brantley found Frankie Hammond Jr. in the back of the end zone for a seven-yard TD pass with 4:31 left in the third quarter. It was Hammond's second touchdown of his career.

HINES' FAKE PUNT
Urban Meyer called for a fake punt facing fourth and 6 from the UF 39. The ball was snapped directly to Omarius Hines, who rushed for 36 yards. He broke two tackles on the play. Meyer is 8 for 8 on fake punts at UF. It was UF's first fake punt since Oct. 2008 against Arkansas.

HALFTIME BELOW
Florida had 94 yards of total offense in the first half and Tennessee had 69. Not exactly an exciting first half. UF running back Jeff Demps had 17 yards on 11 carries. Brantley threw for 75 yards, completing 6 of 10 passes. UT quarterback Matt Sims was 6 of 11 with one interception for 53 yards.

FOURTH OFFENSIVE POSSESSION
The drive stalled at the UF 42 when Demps was dropped for a three-yard loss on second down and Brantley had a pass batted down at the line by UT defensive end Malik Jackson on third down. Omarius Hines was wide open over the middle on the play. The drive's highlight was a 22-yard gain by redshirt freshman tight end Jordan Reed.

BOSTIC'S INTERCEPTION
UF linebacker Jon Bostic drifted into coverage on third and goal from UF 3 to intercept Vols QB Matt Sims. The play bailed out Janoris Jenkins, who fumbled a punt at the UF 40.

GATORS 7, VOLS 3, THIRD OFFENSIVE POSSESSION
Welcome to the game Robert Clark. Chris Rainey's replacement, a freshman receiver, made the play of the game so far for the Gators when he caught a pass over the middle and held onto the ball for a first and goal. Clark lost his mouthpiece was hit so hard but didn't lose the ball. Mike Gillislee rushed for a two-yard score two plays later. UF 7, UT 3.

VOLS 3, GATORS 0
Instead of using its all-everything punter Chas Henry to pin the Vols deep, Florida goes for it on fourth down at the UT 42 and fails to convert. Tennessee drives short distance to UF 32 and kicks 49-yard field goal (Daniel Lincoln) to take 3-0 lead.

SECOND OFFENSIVE POSSESSION
Florida running backs Emmanuel Moody and Mike Gillislee can't gain one yard on third and fourth-down plays from UT42 on UF's second offensive possession of the game.

FIRST OFFENSIVE POSSESSION
The Gators' first offensive possession of the game was dreadful. UF fumbled twice, including a poor snap by center Mike Pouncey that led to minus-15 yards on third. A penalty for illegal formation and the errant snap took UF out of field-goal range.

PREGAME BELOW
"Losers needed ... Got any volunteers?" read the best pro-Gators shirt I saw today while walking through the crowded campus of the University of Tennessee.

Located on the Tennessee River, the pregame atmosphere around Neyland Stadium is one of best the Southeastern Conference. The Vols Navy -- a large flotilla of party boats docked near the stadium -- is one of the best traditions in the south. The stadium itself is enormous and feels like being inside the Roman Coliseum.

The Knoxville News-Sentinel has a great stat in its pre-game advance story: Former UF quarterback Tim Tebow was 13-13 in coverting first downs against the Vols on runs of at least four yards on third and fourth downs. The Gators' offensive consistency has helped UF coach Urban Meyer win five straight against the Vols, including two in a row at Tennessee. One of today's major story lines: Can first-year Florida quarterback continue that consistency?

PREGAME NOTES

-Will Hill is warming up with the first-team defense.

-Lawrence Marsh is on the sidelines in shorts with his arm wrapped. Marsh supposedly cut his arm in practice on Thursday, requiring about 20 stitches.

-jo-UT 10, UF 10
Tennessee tied the game at 10 with a touchdown from Matt Sims to Denarius Moore. Moore's wheel route went for 49 yards. Gators cornerback Jeremy Brown was the defender on the play.

UF 7, UT 3
Kicker Caleb Sturgis started the second half with a 44-yard field goal after a 10-play drive. The drive was highlighted by an 18-yard run by Demps, a 12-yard run by Brantley, a great seven-yard run by Demps to convert on third and 3 from the UT 36. The bad: On third and 10 from the UT 29, Brantley had a pass dropped by freshman Trey Burton. Frankie Hammond Jr.

HALFTIME SUMMARY
Florida had 94 yards of total offense in the first half and Tennessee had 69. Not exactly an exciting first half. UF running back Jeff Demps had 17 yards on 11 carries. Brantley threw for 75 yards, completing 6 of 10 passes. UT quarterback Matt Sims was 6 of 11 with one interception for 53 yards.

I think there is racism working within the Miami Hurricanes.

How could you fire a coach who went 60-15; 34-11 within conference and won a national title?

Meanwhile the current head coach goes 22-18; 11-13 within conference; 0-2 in bowl games and gets a contract extension?

Something is fishy!

That is an outrage!

Still pretending to be a Canes fan that hasn't posted on here for ages. he must have really put a dent in your skull once, because you STILL refer to him and canesrule whenever somebody proves you wrong.

Now continue your imagined war because all signs indicate that the hamburglar is winning.

Posted by: its obvious who the "ill" person is | September 20, 2010 at 01:34 PM

Umm, the hamburglar is fictional, your racism is real. Your chance at ever getting a woman is fictional though. Your mom doesn't count, sicko.

Two guys he can't coach sharing info? I think I'll find something else to do Thursday nite.

Posted by: fake Canesjunkie, stealing yet ANOTHER canes fan ID in an attempt to start trouble on a Canes blog. | September 20, 2010 at 01:48 PM

I doubt it. You will be watching, just as you watch ALL Canes games, Curse Piggy.

There is no racist comments in here. People are just speaking the truth. The truth is your overhyped team and QB are headed toward another 4-7 loss season. I really hope you only lose 3 though, so you delusional people can pass it off as another year of "improvement". At the rate you are improving, you guys should be in the ACC title game in 2075.

Posted by: Fake Spencer Whipple, yet another ID theft by Curse Piggy, the same guy that thinks stealing bloody credit cards and using them for six MONTHS is okay. | September 20, 2010 at 01:52 PM

The worst of the racist comments were deleted by the Herald. This next batch will hopefully get cleared as well. In the meantime, your obsession with the Canes continues. You are trying to do to the Herald blog what you did to the Sentinel blog under Shandel. So sad that you had a Gator ban you, Curse Piggy. The irony was awesome.

Man, I cant even go to the Canes blog anymore. It is filled with Canes fans with a lot of hate. Their QB is great! Their coach is even better! What more could they want? I cant even stand to read through all their blog.

line by line loser. Does anyone read your whinig replies? NOPE. You're a punching bag chump. Your brain is obviously owned as you respond to every single insult line by line. Here's a line. Jacory sucks. And QUIT using my handle fakey.

I just read the comments on Eye of the U...LOL!

"All gator fans have loudly condemned that guy and he was instantly sent packing you delusional loser."

Liar.. He was doing that for SIX MONTHS before anyone did anything about it.

"Hornsby's legal timeline adds to the craziness of this case. On Oct. 12, hours after Slonina and Guilford died, Hornsby appeared in Alachua County Court and entered a deferred prosecution agreement linked to a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge he picked up during an April altercation.

Later that day, or early the next day, Hornsby visited Slonina's apartment and helped remove her belongings. By the end of Oct. 13, he had used the card in Jacksonville, starting a six-month string of use that ended with him in jail Friday."

In other words, he was a REPEAT OFFENDER, and you backed his actions just because of the team he was playing for.

http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/sports_bianchi/2008/05/gator-football.html

This is a theft. Granted, it’s pretty disrespectful to steal from the dead, but it does not compare at all with violent crimes like murder, rape or assault. You’re out of bounds on this one, Bianchi.

Posted by: Kristin | Friday, May 9, 2008 at 10:23 PM

Yeah, no Gator fans justified his actions. Took two seconds to prove THAT one wrong. Heck, one guy even tried to claim that because a former FSU player committed a worse crime, that this one shouldn't count. Hilarious.

I just read the comments on Eye of the U...LOL!

Yep, sure is funny when your racist troll attacks, huh? How sad that you whine when someone finally retaliates after three straight years of his lynching threats. You are a hypocrite.

Don't click this link, it tells the truth about the Gators!

Keep defending these criminals just as you defend the racist that attacks our blogs, hypocrite.

cane fan...

cUCKOO
cUCKOO

Clearly the hamburglar is gaining ground on this guy. Save the world Captain Courageous.

Posted by: Canes Outplaying Gators

No, you going back and forth is hilarious. Go get 'em Colonel Mustard on the gator blog with a keyboard.

Sad to see that so many Cane fans have nothing better to do than troll Gator sites.
Instead of just sitting on your 400 pound rear ends all day knocking on good teams, actually do something productive. I know that will be really hard for you all, but just try it.
At least you all might lose some weight in the process.

sorry monster, the cane troll's brain is controlled by imaginary terrorists. He's saving the blog world one delusional post at a time so we got that going for us. Remember, we support stealing credit cards from dead girls, we are EVIL.

Jacory loves you bro...He's going to throw a pick in your honor Thursday night. I can't wait to see him stand up at the line and point at the DB

Is Percy Harvin still in the NFL?

Gatard trash:

your best WR is off the team
your best RB is playing QB in the NFL
your best QB now lays for Auburn.

Tell us again how great your recruiting classes have been. Tell us why URban Liar blamed your problems on a young team when 20 of the 22 starters are juniors and seniors.

You are a joke UFelony. Just like your trailertrash campus and septic tank town. One more church and there won't be any street corners left.

Bible thumping ignorant 'necks.

Weak. Like your SOS.

The blog Pignis responsiblenfor there being 10x the amount of Canes talk as there is Gatard talk on this supposed Gatard blog.

Thank you, Curse Pig. I love talking Canes on this dump of a blog.

You can have a coronary now and die you fat slob.

Can duh U play a more than one team that is ranked this year and win?

so the ACC is better than the SEC. Okay.

Bible and nutjob preachers. Welcome to your college campus.

Please re-use your plastic silverware. Budget cuts you know.

Gatard trash, 2 titles in the past 14 years is marginally better. For all the garbage yountalk, you'd think you were USC.

But you are not football royalty. That is reserved for the Canes, Texas, Nebraska, Alabama and a few others.

You are not on that list Gatard trash. As much as you try, you just aren't. Uppity white trash will never be.

That's not me talking. That's college football history talking.

Now get back in your trailer home and get out of here.

ZERO undefeated seasons in 100+ years UF...ZERO!

Again thanks Jo for keeping this crap where it belongs! You're a trooper!

Please, please don't "fix" this blog!

Hello!! Rocky Top, Hello!! Anybody home????

C'mon angry, the SS Trailertrash monikor is getting old. You were funnier when you were Rocky Top!

Get that fire extinguisher charged up!! Your canes are playin' the blue-light-special time slot (Thursday night)!

So Urrrrrrrb says enough is enough and something will be done
He tells everyone that Hammond is kicked off the team, then he has learned so much that he is able to play again
FUs DUIs= No problem, nothing will happen
Matt Elam loves to drink even though he is underage and Urrrrb says a suspension will be coming......still nothing
Rainey tells woman its time to die and the football fans around the world know he will be in uniform withing 2 weeks because Urrrrrb will say he has learned from it
Urrrrb and the Buck Toothed Beaver deserve each other
So I guess enough never really never does become enough at the trailor known as FU

I can't wait until my Bulls whup you ugly Canes on November 27! It's gonna be a beatin' down in Miami son! You won't be ables to stop ares boys!

The Bulls coming on an FU site to talk about the Canes
