62-3: Like a Hot Knife Thru Butter

The roughly 91,000 faithful citizens of the Gator Nation who showed up at The Swamp tonight had a lot of pent up enthusiasm to unleash on not-so-unsuspecting Charleston Southern.

Everybody knew where the W would end up.

So, this was more like a family reunion than anything else.

Sadly, some folks were missed. Percy Harvin comes to mind.

But, for the most part, a lot of fondly familiar folks were there in their ORANGE AND BLUE!

Timmy T was his usual awesome self, throwing for one and running for another. He was sidelined before the half to give his back-up John Brantley some valuable time on the field. And, his performance was encouraging enough that . . . dare I say it . . . there just might be life after Tebow?!

But, let's not think about that before it's absolutely necessary.

The only thing yours truly didn't like about this game was that our offense was so brutally efficient that they rarely spent more than 2 minutes at a time on the field. On the flip side, CSU had a surprisingly effective offense of their own. This meant the Gator D actually had to work.

So, there was one little bit of disappointment. The Bucs got on the board with a field goal before halftime. But, even that was somewhat tolerable, since their kicker John Paglia is a native of nearby Ocala.

Bottom line: The college football season couldn't come fast enough this year! Looking forward to some of the real match-ups to come later in the Gators' schedule!!

Side line notes:
* FSU & Miami - Really, who cares anymore?
* TTU - Disappointed. Couldn't catch the game down here. Probably had something to do with the opponent, but not saying anything more on that subject given who the Gators played . . .
* Ditto re UCF vs Samford.
* Condolences to my buddy David and all the other Navy fans out there. I thought y'all were gonna pull that one off in Columbus . . .
* Ditto to ye Syracuse fans.
* Clemson - um, I think they played, right?
