The Florida Gators have succumbed to the Rule of Three.
When it rains it pours unfortunately. So now that Matt Jones is out for the year, that means that you could fill a pretty good team (I'd say what, 6-6 in the ACC) with injured Florida Gators. Scratch that, they'd finish behind Clemson, Florida State and Miami for sure, maybe Virgina Tech and possibly Maryland.
So what's that? Music City Bowl or AdvoCare Bowl?
Sounds good to me.
We can now just get this week over with, yes? Please? Enough is enough.
Play No. 1: Tyler Murphy gets sacked again
It's weird on this play as the left side of the offensive line holds, but the right side falls apart. Usually it's the other way around, but hey, I guess they just wanted to join the suck party.
Anthony Johnson isn't really even all that good, I don't think. He's not going to be one of the top interior linemen will face throughout the year, but on this play (and a lot of others) he was good enough.
At the time of the play action, Jon Halapio is holding his own. For the most part. A big push by the both of the them at the same time has created some separation and that's never really a good thing for an offensive linemen.
A result of that separation is the swim move that Johnson puts on Halapio. That swim move allows him the time and space to get passed Halapio and on his way to Murphy.
Play No. 2: Loucheiz Purifoy gets burned by Odell Beckham
A quick play-fake and a look to the right is all it takes for Purifoy to get burned on one-on-one coverage. It's not a bad burn except for the fact that everybody else on the play did their job and last year Purifoy doesn't get burned by anything at all.
I'm guessing because Zach Mettenberger looks to the other side of the field for so long that Purifoy just thinks that the ball isn't coming his way. Maybe it has to do with going up against the Gators' offense in practice where this play wouldn't happen because either Jeff Driskel or Murphy would check down or run instead of scanning the entire field?
It's all good though, Purifoy made up for all that by not tackling.
Play No. 3: Bad Purifoy yet again
On 3rd and 17 of all times...
The defensive line gets no pressure. Not even a little bit.
To top things off Purifoy allows the defender to get some separation after Mettenberger looks quickly to the other side of the field.
At least Kelvin Taylor looked good. We've got that going for us.
