Quincy Wilson cut right to the chase.
Before a question could be asked, the UF junior cornerback and former standout at Fort Lauderdale's University School let reporters know how Saturday's matchup between No. 19 UF and No. 14 Tennessee was going to play out.
"We have a message from DBU to Tennessee," Wilson said as he stepped foot into Florida's Indoor Practice Facility. "Have you ever seen a duck pull a truck? Ducks don't pull trucks. Nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck. Florida Gators are going to win, simple as that."
While possibly not the direct source, the analogy Wilson referenced appears in the '90s TV show "Martin": "If I tell you a duck can pull a truck, then shut up and hook the sucker up."
Ducks and trucks and metaphors aside, Wilson looks at recent history and sees the game playing out in Florida's favor.
The Gators have won 11 straight in the rivalry, dating back to a 16-7 win in 2005.
The rivalry has gotten closer in recent years, though, with Florida having to rally from double-digit deficits each of the last two years to win by one point (28-27 in 2015; 10-9 in 2014). The Volunteers, who are the preseason favorite to win the SEC East, are favored to win the game in Knoxville, which is slated to start at 3:30 p.m. on CBS and will host ESPN's College GameDay.
So why is Wilson so confident?
"I know what type of players we have on our team," he said. "I know what everybody can do, what we show in practice, how hard we go.
"I know that we can't be stopped."
So far this year, Florida hasn't been stopped. The Gators defense leads the country in average yards allowed (), average points allowed and total sacks (18), but those numbers come against a trio of teams in Massachusetts, Kentucky and North Texas -- not necessarily the stiffest of competition.
Saturday, Wilson said, is a chance to prove the numbers aren't a fluke.
"We're going to go out there and play Gator football," Wilson said, "and win."
