It doesn’t take long for perception to change. When you looked at
Florida’s SEC schedule before the season, you thought one thing. Two
weeks into the season, you think another.

That’s what college football is ” an ever-changing
landscape. Since Tennessee and LSU didn’t play this week, we’ll skip
them but here’s a look before the season and now at UF’s other six
opponents. Remember, it will change in another two weeks.

Mississippi

Before: Sleeper team that has some good athletes but an unproven quarterback.
Now: Jevan Snead is the real deal. He was throwing lasers against Wake Forest. But Ole Miss can’t play defense.

Arkansas

Before: Bobby Petrino has a way of making the passing game work and Houston Nutt didn’t leave the the cupboard that bare.
Now: A trip to Fayetteville doesn’t look so bad. The Hogs have come close to a pair of embarrassing upsets.

Kentucky

Before: The Wildcats will take a step back this year and not make a bowl game.
Now: That defense is as good as Rich Brooks said it would be and he seems to have found a quarterback in Randall Cobb.

Georgia

Before: One of the most talented and hyped teams in the country. Let’s see how they handle a difficult schedule.

Vanderbilt

Before: Good coach, mediocre talent. Vandy has a way of losing the close ones.
Now: Maybe the Commodores have shaken off the losing mentality. Nashville has become a little more dangerous.

South Carolina

Before: This might be the year Steve Spurrier gets it done. He has a great defense and three quarterbacks.

Now: The culture of losing remains in Columbia. Turns out Spurrier has no quarterbacks.
