First half: Despite losing Luke Del Rio to an injury, the offense was able to put up the kind of numbers Gator fans hoped for — 225 yards and 17 points.
Second half: Florida put together some impressive drives and the final dagger put Malik Davis over the 100-yard mark for the first time in Gator career.
For the game: Florida threatened 500 yards and that’s a good sign for the Gators considering how balanced they were with two different quarterbacks.
First half: It was not good. Vanderbilt came out throwing and Kyle Shurmur threw for 161 yards despite being only 9-of-20.
Second half: Florida cannot be allowing anyone to complete a pair of fourth-down passes with the game still in doubt. The secondary did not have a good day.
For the game: We wondered how Florida’s defense would be this year with so many losses and so little depth. The truth is that it’s not very good, certainly not good enough to carry this team.
Special teams B
First half: The punt coverage was finally good and both kickers were again weapons. But having 12 men on the field for a field goal try out of a timeout is bad coaching.
Second half: A short Johnny Townsend punt was the only blemish as Eddy Pineiro continues to boom kickoffs through the end zone.
For the game: We thought Florida needed to win special teams to win this game, but it really was a wash. Special teams were fine, but not much of a factor.
It was another win and there is nothing wrong with that. Florida imposed its will on Vandy offensively, but the big boy football is still coming up.
