The devastating loss to Kentucky has prompted several friends (and others) to contact me through social media and ask me how many games I think the Gators will end up losing this season.
Looking at the schedule, my response was that they could go 0-8 in the SEC (just like Tennessee a year ago) and could very well finish 2-10 on the season, the only remaining win coming against Idaho.
The fact that no one seemed shocked by my response tells you where this program appears to be following the mess we saw on the field last Saturday.
Florida lost both lines of scrimmage to Kentucky, and when you look at what’s ahead, that could happen over and over and over again over the next two months.
What I’ve been telling my friends (and others) is they should forget worrying about wins and losses and how bad the final record is going to end up, and focus on whether the Gators are showing some progress, even if it’s just a little, from week to week. If the Gators manage to do that, at least it will give some hope for the future. If the Gators are stagnant, it’s not going to be good.
So, I’m predicting there will be a little progress this week in a game that likely will go down to the wire. So, let’s just call it a very shaky pick.
Prediction: Florida 31, Colorado State 30.
