Thoughts on Bama-UF-- a fight for focus
This just in: We have video evidence that Leigh Tiffin can make a kick.
The Tide are still boo-hooing over whatever it is they did to lose to Arkansas. Tiffin appears on his way to becoming the scapegoat for whatever happens to Bama's season from here on out.
Meanwhile, Tide starting kicker Jamie Christensen is nearly recovered from a nagging groin injury and may play against the Gators this week. Yep, that's right, a groin injury-- Christensen wouldn't have had the balls to make a game-winning kick last week either.
It appears Tiffin may have seen his last shot at blowing a game for awhile.
In the Swamp, the Gators are trying to focus after last week's sluggish win over Kentucky. Urban Meyer and Co. will be trying to avenge an embarassing 31-3 loss to Alabama last season.
The pattern is the same going in. The Gators were outscored 21-0 in the second half by Kentucky last season, but held on to win before heading to Tuscaloosa.
Don't look for the same this go-'round.
This one goes to the Gators-- 34-21.
I love Monday predictions.
