iT'S 7:26 and Patrick and Junor are playing like good boys.
Well , my beloved Number 18 Gators beat a Number Four Georgia team in football yesterday at the world's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party in Jax.. Florida was a six point favorite, which is absurd , but based on Georgia's quarterback not playing, and the back up hasn't taken a snap since high school or somethng like that. Some forecasters picked the Bulldogs. Anyway, the Offense played magnificently in the first quarter against one of the best D's in the country., with two quick touchdowns, then folded up their tents and went home. Leak, however did great , completing 15 out of 20 passes. For four quarters the offensive line protected Leak, but they always had somebody in the backfield to hold his hand, so maybe Coach Meyer fixed that problem. The only time he was even hurrried was a sack when he was alone back there and they of course blitzed. Leak gave up his bewildered foggy stare that he's sported for the last month for a silly grin. I don't know what they had him on, but it worked. The D stopped Georgia every time it had to, pretty near. The final score was 14 to ten, so we didn't make the spread, but a win is a win, and four weeks from now nobody will remember the score or the stats. So now we've got Vandy, USC and the girls left... Gators are 6-2. Meyer is the first Florida coach to beat two top 15 opponents in his first year... Poor Ronnie lost again, his sixth in a row, hasn't won a conference game yet. Bet the AD of Illinois is having second thoughts, eh? The Zookster is 2-6. Don't know how Stevie-boy did, maybe they had a bye week--he was at 4-3 or something, I think. We get them at Columbia. Then a two week get-ready for the sisters in the Swamp, and if somebody else beats Georgia, maybe a trip to Atlanta...All in all a good week for the boys from Old Florida.
