"We have to stop the run," Robinson said. "You know that they are definitely coming back home (after two road victories) and that's where you want to shine. You are always a little afraid, maybe it's a wolf in sheep clothing. But we know what they like to do."
Defensive end Jake Bequette understands that, too.
"They are a power running team," Bequette said of the Gators. "That's what they've been and that's what we are going to get. We know that."
The problem is that there is plenty of finesse in the looks Florida gives.
"They spread you and they move people and try to get you thinking that something is going away from you with motion and fakes," Bequette said. "Then, it's right at you, physical and strong. You look at the linemen in their stances. They are leaning forward. They are in an aggressive stance. They are coming right at you. That's what Coach (Urban) Meyer believes in and that's what they do.
"The thought is that you have to be physical. You have to meet them. The movement they give you probably is designed to freeze you and make you think about where the ball is going. If that happens and you freeze, then they are on top of you (with blockers). So you have to go attack them. You have to meet their physical blocks."
That's what the Hogs have done the last two games. Their defensive line has played well, both against the run and the pass.
"The defensive line has done a good job," Robinson said. "Some of that is some great preparation from Bobby Allen and Kirk Botkin during the week. We've had some pressures ready for certain situations. Our coaches have done a great job with our defensive front. Coach Allen has done a great job in the box of getting us the look of what is happening and then Coach Botkin has communicated that to players. Coach Botkin is also getting great feedback from players on the field and that's helped us in what we've called."
John L. Smith coaches the outside linebacker, the spot where Freddy Burton (base) and Jerico Nelson (jack) split time on the strong side.
"Coach Robinson has alluded to it the last two weeks that the front has really done their job," Smith said. "They are playing. What we have to do - and these are Coach Robinson's words - is we have to pick it up in the back row and we have to get it done back there to match those guys up front. We're going to get that done."
Smith also coordinates the special teams. How good is Florida punt return specialist Brandon James?
"He's real good," Smith said. "He's not had the year that maybe up to this point he was expecting stat-wise, but when you have somebody back there that special and that quick - Javier Arenas at Alabama and he probably have to be 1 and 2 in the country in whatever order you want to put them in, I don't know, but they're real good."
Do you focus on him in practice or do you still focus on what you do?
"We try to focus on what we do, which is to get down and cover," Smith said. "The biggest thing is to protect, get the punt off, get down and cover. We don't try to put a lot of emphasis on what does, it's more about let's get out there and execute."
Are you concerned about two missed extra points in two weeks?
"It doesn't concern me at all because it wasn't a miss because the kicker missed the ball, it was the holder not getting it down," Smith said. "That's just one of those things that happens once in a while. (Holder Austin) Tucker has been exceptional, so knock-on-wood that's the last one of the year."
Nelson has made plays in the hybrid defense, forcing sacks and big hits on ball carriers and quarterbacks. He made a big play against an Auburn screen last year, knocking a helmet loose. Robinson said his teammates noticed.
"That play ignited our defense," Robinson said. "Nelson has done a nice job in bringing pressure. He's done a good job in our zones. He needs to improve in our man coverages. We just have to make sure he doesn't get worn down. He's been very productive, though.
"The offense has to account for him. He brings energy to our defense."
Nelson just sees it as doing his job.
"Basically the way our defense is set up is for me to set the front, line up and make tackles if the ball comes my way," Nelson said.
Nelson said it's just a matter of being in the proper run fit and playing gaps.
"It's very important because they're a running team, inside power zone," Nelson said. "We've got to play our gaps so when the running backs hit the holes we can just gang tackle."
Do you look forward to playing Tim Tebow?
"To me I like a challenge," Nelson said. "To go into his house and try to out-do him in front of his crowd is something I take pride in."
Is Florida's offense down this year?
"They still have good receivers, but not like last year," he said. "The offense can still do different things because Tebow is in the backfield. He's a big threat, as are the running backs and his roommate, Riley Cooper, they have a good connection. We'll have to watch out for that."
How difficult is it to scheme for Florida's different looks?
"They'll come out in a Spread set and put a running back on each side and then have one motion back into the backfield to give a two-back set," Nelson said. "Basically when they motion we've got to make our checks and fill our gaps."
