That, folks is everything that went right for Georgia in a 49-10 Florida romp that send most of the folks in red and black headed to the parking lot long before the final horn sounded.
Florida's dominance was keyed by a defense that held firm against Georgia scoring opportunities in the first half and took the ball away from the vaunted Georgia offense throughout the second half. For the second week in a row the Gators had two scoring drives of ten yards or less.
Florida's performance was so thorough that John Brantley threw more touchdown passes (1) than projected first round draft pick Matthew Stafford. It was so complete that Emmanuel Moody's 71 fourth quarter rushing yards were six more than another player listed as a likely No. 1 pick come April, Knowshon Moreno.
Florida got an 88-yard interception return from Joe Haden, a 64-yard interception return from Ahmad Black and a 20-yard fumble return from Terron Sanders. Those three guys are all sophomores.
The Gators also got a none-too-subtle measure of revenge for Georgia's storming the field last year, calling a pair of time outs in the final minute to make the Dawgs and their few remaining fans hear and view the Gators' celebration. It was practically perfect in every way and it makes the Gators the best one-loss team in the country and the team no one wants to face with the National Championship on the line.
Florida can't relax. The Gators must beat Vanderbilt next Saturday to clinch the SEC and return to the SEC Championship Game. In the meantime, Gator opponents can just hope that something derails this runaway train that has scored more than 200 points in the last four games.
