    We've got the power, speed and talent to easily put the Gators away.

    Just give us a good game plan, situational awareness and good play calling. No wood choppin'.

    Piece of cake.

    @Lighthorse

    I can agree with us having more talent overall at key positions but I can't quite grasp piece of cake because of Trask. He reads coverages well and throws well. If Franks was still the QB, I'd be on the piece of cake side. Having 4 receivers with 20 or more receptions with still 5 games left is quite impressive and not easy to defend. Our pass rushers and DB's will have to play well. I still believe in chopping wood but not stubbornly. It will take that to limit their possessions as it would if we played Bama, Clemson, OU, or OSU.

    @KBP

    Trask has been impressive, agreed. Likewise his receivers. I cannot forget, however, that Trask is the backup quarterback. And Mullen has used the third string QB quite effectively. At least as well as we used Justin Fields last year.

    What's most impressive is Dan Mullen's ability to adapt to almost any situation -- with creative matchups, routes, substitutions, playcalling, you name it. It's called creativity, you know, imagination.

    I'm concerned that imagination, that ability to coach in real time is comething that Kirby smart has not demonstrated in many cases. Cases where the goin' gets tough. Against the big boys. Have we seen Kirby (or whoever makes decisions) choke when he should be calling an outside run or a blitz?

    I'm pulling for Kirby and James Coley and Dan Lanning to step up this Saturday. If they don't, we can forget Auburn or LSU or the Tide. We can start thinking about next year, perish the thought.

    Step up, Kirby!!

    It should be a great game. Both teams have very good defenses, with Ga's likely slightly better.

    Both have good but not great offenses, with Ga having a slight statistical edge. I think both defenses will hold the offenses in check, and 24- 27 points wins the game. This is for the East Championship. Can't wait...

    If we start with a failed run up the middle I will lose it. If Florida starts with a flea flicker I will lose it.

    Yep, this is definitely THE game and should be heavily watched across the country. The winner here takes the East and the winner of the SEC Championship game likely goes to Atlanta. Season is FAR FAR FAR from over, but we have to pull out all of the stops and use every trick we can.

    No wood chopping is right! It's time to light the fire with the stack of wood we've got!

    Go Dawgs!

    There is no piece of cake here. Looking at trends we have been trending down all year offensively. Hot Rod was off in the SC game, and had no attempts against UK. Fromm has not been what we expected to this point. Our coaches have not come close to getting the most out of the talent that has been assembled here. I have been disappointed to this point.

    UF on the other hand has been steadily improving, however they have stumbled at times, most notably against UK, SC played them tough, with fair officiating that game could have been different. The Gators are coming to fight, if we can't or don't respond it could be a long day and get away from us.

    Worst part for me is I don't know what to expect, kinda like the Richt days, who is going to show up. Is it the team we know we can be or is Kirby going to trot out the same machine. Part of me can see a team like we were first half of the SECCG last year, dynamic, part of me sees the team that came out against SC, predictable, unable to adjust. Just ****! Either way, been a Dawg Lover for 50 years and that's not going to change. This game boils down to COACHING, who will be prepared, and who can get the most out of their team.

    @MobileDawg I'm telling you -- and I'm telling myself -- not to worry.

    We have a championship caliber team. I believe Kirby will step up this week and do some real coaching. On the field.

    Earn his $millions! It is on him.
