- First off, I have to give some credit to John Brantley. He was battered like a load of catfish and still kept playing. Did he play well? No, he didn't. But when you can't put pressure on your foot enough to walk it's just as hard to plant it and throw a good ball. His coaches felt he was their best option and he gave all he possibly could.
- Now that that is out of the way, we have to give credit to Murray for something similar. He refused to leave the game. When he returned after being helped from the field he was definitely off. But he played through the pain and the incompletions and it paid dividends late.
- Like Tyler said, the sound we heard was Richt's balls clanking together on those 4th down calls. But Bobo's decision to go for the pass on 2nd and 9 as we tried to run out the clock was just as big. We knew we'd have at least one guy in 1 on 1 and he trusted his QB and a receiving corps that had delivered play after play the whole game. That did everything but seal the deal and put the gators back against their own endzone.
- Samuel took it from there with the help of the offensive line. Smash mouth. "We're going to run this down your throat so line up and try to stop us!!"
- Back to the defense. As honored as I was to watch that in person Saturday night, it was nearly as joyous on the television rewatch. If Jarvis Jones can get Nat'l PotW honors for 5 tackles, 4 sacks when he was being held every other play...I'm glad he feels he's not ready for the NFL.
- It was across the field from our end zone seats the other night and I thought it was a safety then. Now I'm just sure of it.
Big hugs for Kasyn!
