Live at The Swamp
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- And the winner for the most creative (and efficient) tailgater I saw during my drive into Ben Hill Griffin Stadium this afternoon goes to ... the man riding the scooter with a cooler as a seat. That cooler, by the way, was equipt with stereo speakers that were blasting ACDC tunes. Nice.
Anyways, I'm here at The Swamp, where Tim Tebow will have one less thing to worry about this evening when his Gators take on LSU. The talk around these parts is that Florida's offense has been unimpressive of late. Um, right. A Heisman quarterback in Tebow. A shifty kick returner in Brandon James. A dynamic (and apparently healthy) wide receiver in Percy Harvin. Oh, and the unit puts up 36 points per game. Sounds like a really pathetic bunch.
As for LSU, the biggest burden falls on the shoulders of freshman quarterback Jarrett Lee. Running back Charles Scott can only rush for so many yards. At some point, Lee is going to have to show he can provide some balance to the Tigers offense on a consistent basis if LSU expects to continue winning in the SEC. Florida's pass defense ranks No. 18 in the nation in pass defense, so Lee certainly will be tested this evening.
For those of you who will be tuning in tonight, what are your predictions? LSU has won three of the past four meetings between the two schools. Will they come out on top again? Or will the mystique of the Swamp carry Urban Meyer & Co. to victory? A second conference loss likely would quell both the Gators' SEC and national title hopes.
