Saturday Selections: Florida-Tennessee thread

Live (or soon to be) from The Swamp...

The Gators and Volunteers kickoff in roughly four hours at 3:30 p.m., CBS - SEC Game of the Week. 

UT hasn't beat UF since 2004. Since then, the Gators have won a pair of BCS National Championships, while the Vols are on their fourth head coach. 

Really. 

ICYMI: My advance on today's game. Against UT, Gators out to fix problems in the red zone.  

Gator

*****UPDATE*****

Freshman wideout Demarcus Robinson has been suspended for today's game for violating team rules, the school announced a short time ago. 

Robinson, a heralded prospect, has yet to catch a pass in two games. The 6-foot-2, 201 pound WR has been targeted three times. 

*****UPDATE NO. 2*****

Tennessee announced redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback. Helluva place to have your first career start. 

PICKS

I hope y'all are paying attention 'cause I'm making fools money with these picks.

Scoreboard: 13-6 ATS, 1-1 selecting Florida games

This week's six-pack:

LSU (-17) vs. Auburn 

Texas A&M (-27.5) vs. SMU

Georgia Tech (-6.5) vs. North Carolina

Mizzou (-3) at Indiana  

Georgia (-32) vs. North Texas

And finally, Florida (-17) over Tennessee. 

It's a fat number and one UF likely can't cover -- SO TAKE THE UNDER (47.5) -- but why am I picking the Gators?

Tennessee has limited depth -- on both sides of the ball. A quarterback battle the week before playing one of the nation's top defenses? Not good either. When Rajion Neal is your top offensive threat, you're in trouble. 

Enjoy the game, everybody.

In Will we trust!

All U have to do is score 21 Tennessee!

Can I get 400$ coach?

Gators announce starting cornerback Marcus Roberson (knee) and right tackle Tyler Moore (ankle) are OUT for today's game. Both players were hurt in the loss to Miami.

Also, scat-back Valdez Showers will miss the contest after suffering an ankle injury in Wednesday's practice.

Kyle Koehne is starting at RT

Hahahahahahahaha ...they need driskel on defense. That kid is prone to ints. Well, doesnt matter now he has an excuse.....he is done!

He hurt his gator pride not his ankle. Lol

I see 3 wins lol. Well at least U got rid of driskel. Lets see how long murphy lasts with this oline

With that oline murphy is going down too. Maybe purifoy can play qblmao.

Wait they might actually score....hold.

Just proves my point. Sec offenses suck...make the defenses look good lol

Murphy's law: lmao

Put some red noses on them and all those turnovers we can and we can dub this the circus bowl lmao at sec...why do ooc teams score more on sec teams than sec teams?

Wow, all day long on the Gator forum on a Sat. That is unbelievably sad! It must REALLY suck to have no life! Pathetic!

Ask driskell he has no life now! Got his leg broke by Tennessee lmao.

Tennessee wouldn't even stay in gville lmao. They are staying in Ocala? Probably because all the trailer parks were full.

Look at the brightside...driskel wont be throwing anymore ints! Bwahahahaha but dont get happy yet. Your oline still sucks and murphy picked up where driskel left off lol. Im gonna look up that turnover to td ratio....be back soon!

Espn just called murphy a dropoff at qb .lol

And you are a dropoff at humanity, less than a human being, a despicable Miami Moron cheering a player going down to injury and spending your Saturday afternoon posting crap on the Gator blog.
Sidcane is a Moron by definition and subhuman in intelligence.
