Tagged: Ready to give up!
Speaking of the Gators, Saturday in the Swamp proved the old cliche about football being a game of inches. No. 21 Florida found out the hard way, as Eddy Pineiro’s missed extra point was the difference in the Gators’ 17-16 loss to a woeful LSU team. Florida was full of mistakes — powered mostly by a sterile playbook — but the Gators were upended by a special-teams mistake in a game they should have won.
Dooley sums it it pretty good:
“The bottom line is that missed kick isn’t why Florida lost the game. The Gators had multiple opportunities and could generate nothing on offense after two touchdown drives. We can point to the Knucklehead Nine as a big part of the reason or the injuries to Tyrie Cleveland and Luke Del Rio and a million other things. Those are just excuses.”
