Rivals - Coots' Chances For Another Big Upset of Gators

AN ENCORE IN COLUMBIA?

South Carolina’s win over Georgia was labeled an upset for good reason, as the Gamecocks were 25-point underdogs according to some sportsbooks. There’s a difference between an upset and a fluke, however, and now Will Muschamp’s program will attempt to prove the second term doesn’t apply. It’ll have its chance to do so on Saturday, when No. 9 Florida comes to town for a game that carries miles more intrigue than it did at this time last week.

The 3-3 Gamecocks are heavy underdogs again, sure. But according to Chris Clark, who covers the team for GamecockCentral.com, South Carolina’s improved defense gives it a chance to put a scare into another SEC frontrunner.

"There is no doubt that this is a South Carolina team that’s playing better football than at the beginning of the season,” Clark said. “Georgia didn’t play its best game, but some of the mistakes and poor play were forced by South Carolina's strong defensive effort. The Gamecocks are pretty salty up front, and playing more true three-linebacker sets has seemed to create an uptick in production as well.

“Florida presents some unique challenges with its offense, and if USC can have another strong showing on that side of the ball, there will then be confidence that this defense is the real deal.”

South Carolina freshman quarterback Ryan Hilinski, who exited last weekend’s upset victory with an injury but is expected to play, giving fans another reason to keep at least one eye on Muschamp’s meeting with his former team. There are no shortage of storylines here, after all.

They scored 10 points on offense last week in regulation.

You can't win if you can't score.


UF not exactly dynamic offensively either

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


Unless Florida pulls a Kirby and completely craps the bed...

this is not a game uof5c will win.

Just like last week, they'll need A LOT of help from the opponent to come away with the W.

"Heavy underdogs"?

I'm pretty sure this is a less than a TD spread.

Let's not pretend like they are trying to win consecutive games as a 20+ point dog.

Teams that are a TD or less underdog win games all the time.


The spread was 9 points this morning...***

The coots may win but it would be because of the waether. No matter what, they won't win the East.

I’m not convinced that they are playing better than they did at the start of the season.

The Tarheels outgained them 483-270

The dawgs outgained them 468-297

You have to be lucky to win or even be in a close game when the stats are that lopsided. The other team has to make a lot of mistakes for you to have a chance to win.

The defense still gives up a ton of yards. The offense is capable and has shown brief flashes but lacks consistency. They might be fired up about upsetting UGA but this is basically the same team that they put on the field in week 1 in Charlotte. I do think they got a slight upgrade at QB though.

They owe their first victory over a top ten team since 2014 to an incompetent K Smart more than anything. I’m not convinced that Florida is a great team but I think the Gators win.

Keep in mind that road games are difficult for UF....

They struggled at Kentucky (who is bad this year)...lost at LSU...
But it seems to me that they don’t like to leave the state of Florida for a reason.

That being said....I’m not sure SCAR has the offense to do it.
But this has defensive struggle written all over it...and will probably be close because UF is not really a top 10 team, especially on the road.
