Florida's offense inept in loss to MI

Florida's offense inept in loss to MI

At the Michigan team meeting Friday night, the eve of the No. 11 Wolverines' 33-17 rout of No. 17 Florida, Harbaugh read his team a two-page, single-spaced typewritten letter from Anthony Riddle of Jackson, Michigan, a half-hour west of the Michigan campus.

The year is only going to get longer unless the Gators resolve their quarterback dilemma or find some kind of spark to revive a dormant offense.

Speight finished the game with 181 yards passing, 1 touchdown, and two interceptions. But Speight started the second half and orchestrated a 10-play scoring drive that gave MI the lead, 20-17. Speight was briefly pulled for John O'Korn, who didn't do much better before the starter was put back in. But when the defense and special teams are as predictably and unflinchingly dominant as they were, 24 points by Alabama feels like 50 by anyone else.

Florida linebacker Cristian Garcia (43) blocks as cornerback CJ Henderson (5) returns an interception for a touchdown while Michigan's Jack Dunaway (88) pursues in the first half Saturday in Arlington, Texas.

It is a bit interesting that Harbaugh went with O'Korn and not freshman Brandon Peters, who impressed during spring football, and some thought would win the job outright. After connecting with wideout Josh Hammond for a 34-yard gain on his first pass of the game, Franks couldn't do much else.

At the time of going to Press, the trains of Central Railway (CR) and Western Railway (WR), were almost normal. As many as 10 teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) were deployed to rescue people.


It was one of those kinds of days for Florida, which saw its quarterbacks sacked five times and lost time of possession by almost 10 minutes. No. 11 MI never trailed again in a 33-17 victory against No. 17 Florida on Saturday at AT&T Stadium. Four Michigan rushers were able to compile 215 yards on the ground against a team that has an extremely stout defense year in and year out. Disappointed in the lack of being able to run the football...it was very bad disappointing, I'll tell you that. "We got a lot of things to work on and we'll get it cleaned up and we'll be better next week". By then, promising young receivers and defensive backs should be hitting their stride at the college level and handing out more pain than they're feeling.

Before we get into this, it's important to note the situation. Otherwise I wouldn't say it was an issue. "It was better than anything I could have told the team".

The Florida Gators are coming from a 9-4 record and they nearly got to where they wanted, but they lost to Alabama in the SEC title game.

FLORIDA: It was really hard to judge the Gators with their leading returning receiver Antonio Callaway and top returning rusher Jordan Scarlett among 10 players suspended for the opener.
