Kirby improves to 7-3 vs top 10 teams in his career. Kirby avenged his loss to # 10 Auburn by beating # 4 Auburn 2017 and Kirby had the lead against # 1 and # 2 Alabama. Kirby has beat # 2 Oklahoma and # 9 Kentucky and # 9 Florida and Kirby even beat # 8 Auburn Kirby’s inaugural season. # 7 Notre Dame earlier this season and now # 6 Florida downed by Kirby who was # 8 coming-off two games against unranked opponents where Kirby started slowly. Not tonight. Tonight Kirby did everything we all wanted him to do. Thank you Kirby. Good job. Thanks for letting our guys play. Dan Mullen did not expect that. It was what we HAD to do.
Florida was 2 of 9 on 3rd Down Conversions 1 on a penalty on us to us 12 of 18. Let us pass the ball more Kirby and return punts and kickoffs. It works.
3 in a row over Florida for Kirby who lost his first time. And this will be 3 years in a row SEC Championship Game the first time an SEC East team did that since Steve Spurrier did that for Florida when he first got there.
How about that sack by Jordan Davis ?
7 catches for 132 yards and a TD and a 2-points conversion by Lawrence Cager. Sweet.
Dan Mullen continues his LOSING RECORD All-Time vs The SEC at 42 wins 44 LOSSES.
We returned a PUNT Dominick Blaylock and we returned a KICK-OFF Brian Herrien – both of whom will play in the NFL. I have Florida 0 for 3 on 3rd Down and Jake Fromm 8 for 11 on 3rd Down Conversions. THIS is what I said we had to do before the game.
This is what we’re talking about.
Now don’t take the foot off the pedal. This game is NOT over.
We have to get the ball out in space and no way better than to turn our jets loose on punt returns and kickoff returns with our fast studs taking it back against our # 1 Rival.
We have to change it up and pass on 1st Downs. Throw the football. Florida will be Kirby. You start slowly today and we will boo again.
Don’t play our lesser players while holding our better players on the bench Kirby.
Boy do I hate having the # 75 Passing Offense all 4 years of you Kirby so far.
Instead of telling us what you are going to do Kirby then not doing it except playing well on defense how about you go do it Kirby.
Kirby was supposed to destroy Florida 2019 with Kirby’s far better talent because of superior recruiting. That is not how we feel game day. Game Day we feel Kirby didn’t want to play the game in Jacksonville because it hurts his recruiting and we feel that Kirby will insist on running the ball today and fair catch every special teams’ play so we can run the ball every down.
I want to pass the ball and use 2nd stringers on special teams who absolutely will return every kick.
What Kirby has been doing leading-up to this game has been TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. He better come through today because we just have to have this now after blowing it against a 3-5 team who Florida beat obviously. Last game Kirby was looking pretty crappy against Kentucky in the last game until 6 minutes before the fourth quarter still with just failed drives. All failed drives until 6 minutes before the 4th quarter to another CRAPPY TEAM Kentucky.
I am tried of the excuses frankly.
Win. I hate Florida.
