Fun With Stats (& more UF-ARK tidbits)

Saturday marks UF’s third straight conference game against a first-year SEC coach -- Butch Jones (Tennessee), Mark Stoops (Kentucky) and now Bret Bielema.

To whit: Bielema is 36-8 (.818) lifetime when facing an opponent for the first time.

Florida and Arkansas have just nine meetings all-time.

South Plantation High standout Alex Collins became the first tailback in SEC history to rush for at least 100-yards in his first three career games. Also: Collins leads all freshman backs in the nation with 597 rushing yards.

The Razorbacks are the only team in the SEC with a 100-yard receiving game and a 100-yard rushing game from a freshman.

Arkansas’ seven 100-yard rushing performances are the most in the SEC in 2013. No other team has more than three.

A battle of the kickers? Advantage Razorbacks.

Will Alabama case force NCAA to investigate? Or surrender?

On Thursday, it was word from TideSports.com that assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris was placed on administrative leave for providing a loan over the summer to star safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. The report also says Harris was found by the Alabama compliance department to have ties to a sports agent.


Every week there's a new report out about this outlaw program. All the $EC homers want to say Nick Saban is the best coach ever....NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND, a great coach would NEVER have this kind of mess following him at every turn.

This should be a good game, gradually more difficult than the one before. Arky has a potent scoring offense for sure but a great defense will beat a high scoring O most of the time. On the other hand Arky has given up a bunch of points while our O is starting to wake up and move the ball better without the slew of turnovers JD has been know for. No doubt we can score a bunch against them.
The kicker is another deal altogether, when you long is 33 yards that is pretty weak. In his defense the dude is only a freshman and has room for improvement.
Go Gators!!

Toledo and UM are the best teams U have faced this year.trying to justify arky as a good team like U did Kentucky? Tennessee?lol...smoke and mirrors baby....smoke and mirrors....

How about this for fun with stats?
