Florida: A loathsome offensive (team) you can't stop watching

GAINESVILLE -- Cover your eyes...or don't. 

The GatorNation's mindset right now: somewhere between Stockholm syndrome and a revolution. 

  

Some fun facts...

* Georgia Tech has more passing touchdowns than UF.

* Michigan has -69 yards rushing the past two weeks, but the Wolverines still average just one-fourth of a yard per carry less than the Gators. On a related note, Brent Pease and Al Borges both protect the quarterback with the exact same (in)efficiency.

* Wake Forest has as many offensive touchdowns as Florida.

* The Gators are barely better at kicking field goals than Purdue or Virginia Tech, while barely worse than USC, FAU or Kansas. 

* Florida has two four-game losing streaks since 1990 -- both under Muschamp

* Florida’s red zone offense is less than one percent better than the self-proclaimed schematic genius’ (Mr. Charlie Weis).  

* The combined record of UF’s four wins: 15-23.

* Florida has allowed as many rushing touchdowns as Boston College and Louisiana-Lafayette.

* UF has more penalties during its four-game losing streak than seven teams in the country have all season.

* Florida’s meat-grinder attack has allowed 40 more tackles for loss than Stanford’s smashmouth offense. Also, UF has more negative yardage than Kansas. 

Yup, Amanda Bynes has a better 2013 resume. Oh, and UF still has two top-12 teams remaining on the schedule. Seriously, it’s almost impressive how bad Florida has been this season.

Ready to eat

GAINESVILLE -- Florida travels to South Carolina this weekend to face an eagar and revenge-minded No. 11 Gamecocks bunch. 

The two teams will square off at 7 p.m. on ESPN2, the Southeastern Conference announced Sunday.

In 2012, Florida destroyed Steve Spurrier's team 44-11 despite gaining just 183 total yards.

Gators, a burning carcass of [enter any bodily fluid or function really], appear prime for a return beatdown. 

Plus, South Carolina's sophomore tailback Mike Davis -- the SEC's leading rusher (1,058 yards and 10 touchdowns) -- seems quite motivated to face Florida's leaky rushing defense (or something like that). 

Davis was once committed to UF before a well-documented recruiting saga ultimately led him to South Carolina.
