...And I'm guessing there's a better than 50% chance the ''real'' name isn't here. This is just a compilation of names I've seen other places, and few I found on my own based on arbitrary criteria. Because you can bet Will Muschamp is casting a wide net. So why shouldn't we?
Following Gators football is a little painful right now. So maybe this is a good time to spend your Sports Betting Dime on Gators in the NFL. There were 17 former Gators that played in the NFL week 10. 13 of them were starters. Sharrif Floyd made his first start at nose tackle for the Vikings. In the same game, Jordan Reed caught an 11-yard TD pass for the Redskinsto putting them up 17-14 over the Vikings. Riley Cooper scored two TDs for the Eagles, one was a 45-yard touchdown pass. The four Gators on the Browns, Chiefs, Patriots and Jets were on bye this past week.
In this episode, the guys discuss the current state of Gators football, and hand out some midseason grades with the team on bye this week. They also make some SEC and National Championship predictions.
Heading into the bye week, the Florida Gators are in serious danger of missing out on bowl eligibility. Assuming a win over Georgia Southern, they need to win one of their remaining games: against Georgia, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and Florida State. In all but Vandy they will likely be the underdog, and Vandy just beat Georgia.
So, what's wrong with 2013 Florida Gators football?
At G1, we love to participate in just about every fantasy sport you can imagine. For the last several years, I've been writing a fantasy column on this site for college fantasy football. In lieu of that column this year, I am running an 8-team SEC-only league at CBS. We all hated to pay CBS for the privilege of using their shitty fantasy product, but literally no one else let us use the players names and configure the league in this way.
Default CBS rules are 14-man rosters, start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, K, DST. I kept those, but I set a roster limit of 2 QB and 2 DST. This is because with 8 teams and only 14 'real' SEC teams, I didn't want the 5 man bench being used too much to horde these two scarce positions. In particular during challenging bye week scenarios (unlike the NFL, college teams have two byes and they take place from week 1 to through the fantasy playoffs!)
Anyway, we did an untimed draft that began about Aug 1 and ran through about Aug 20. It was sort of timed, as I tried to set the time limit to 24 hours, but CBS' shitty fantasy product struck again and the time limit was 38 hours. A few picks were, unbelievably, autopicked.
It's important to enter the football season with a little perspective on how the SEC teams stack up, in order to set expectations but also to gauge the value of a win and the appropriate amount of despair for each loss. With that in mind, here are my preseason SEC power rankings.
