Saturday, October 01, 2005Florida-Alabama
The Game: Finally a good Florida-Alabama game. Ever since the mid 90s it seems like these two teams just haven't been good at the same time. Alabama is over its sanctions and Florida finally has some sort of organization in its coaching ranks.
The Players: Chris Leak hasn't thrown an interception yet and Brodie Croyle is rarely healthy at this stage of the season so it's a treat.
The Numbers: Kenneth Darby leads the SEC in running. The Alabama offensive line holds a similar size advantage to that of what Tennessee held over Florida.
The Line: Been sitting at Florida - 3.5 all week.
The Forecast: I've flip-flopped on this game all week. At times I think Alabama is going to win, at times I think it's going to be a Gator blowout. Here's my thing, if Alabama can run, they will do it all game. If the Tennessee game is any indication, the Tide will be able to run and win.
The Pick: Alabama 21, Florida 17.
