Florida Gators Mid-Year Stat Review

Dan Thompson takes a look at stands and trends for the Florida Gators football team.

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

The Florida Gators are 7-1 and have more wins than their two in-state rivals (University of Miami and Florida State University) have combined (six) and sit-on-top of the SEC East – not much more you could ask for eight games into the 2019 season. Sure, Saturday’s game in Columbia, S.C. wasn’t always the prettiest, but […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. LSU Tigers

What we saw on Saturday in Baton Rouge, LA between the Florida Gators and LSU Tigers was the best football game of the year so far, but, man, was it a tale of two sides of the ball. We saw a lot of offense, including Dan Mullen’s best-called game all game season, matched with Florida’s […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Auburn Tigers

The Florida Gators have played six games in the 2019 season and have won all six of them – and you can’t ask for anything more than that. On Saturday, the Florida Gators beat the Auburn Tigers 24-13, improving Dan Mullen’s coaching record at Florida to 16-3, is 3-0 against the SEC West, and now […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Towson Tigers

I always say, “beat the teams you’re supposed to beat, the way you’re supposed to beat them” – and that is exactly what the Florida Gators did in their win over the Towson Tigers. Towson isn’t your typical FCS opponent – they are one of the top-10 FCS teams and posed a challenge for the […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Florida State Seminoles

I have said it several times this season, and no time has been sweeter than this time: “Beat the teams you’re supposed to beat, the way you’re supposed to beat them.” It was a helluva win for the Florida Gators, the eighth biggest (of 35) in series history, at 41-14 – and between us, could […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Idaho Vandals

“Beat the teams you’re supposed to beat, the way you’re supposed to beat them”. It is a mantra I have uttered countless times and something that for the first time in many years, I have been able to say numerous times in a Florida Gators football season. Sure, beating Idaho is not something worth bragging […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

For the second time this year, the Gators came from behind in a game that I, yes, yours truly, counted them out of. I even tweeted “this team has given up, it seems” after the team was down by 14 and then thought it again when they were down 31-14. But this team is different […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs

No one likes to read articles after a loss. We want to move on. We want to think it was just a blip on the radar and we’ve moved past it; that there is no need to look backward. But, I think we can learn a little bit from the Florida Gators loss to the […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Vanderbilt Commodores

The Florida Gators are bowl eligible seven games into the season and for the sixth time this season, they found a different way to win. So far, they have won through: big offense; special teams; defense; low-scoring away game; big rivalry game; and now come from behind. The mixture of these six wins are the […]

Behind the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs

The Florida Gators found their fourth different way to win this season. They’ve won by sheer domination (Charleston Southern), special teams (Colorado State), turnovers (Tennessee) and now, lockdown defense (Mississippi State). The Gators played aggressively, smart, and stout on defense – holding their third opponent of the season to less than four yards per play. […]

Crunching the Numbers: Florida Gators vs. Kentucky Wildcats

A famous philosopher named Robert, or @SECG8or, on Twitter said after the Florida Gators loss to the Kentucky Wildcats, “Mullen’s thumbprint on UF’s program is evident, but so is Mac’s (Jim McElwain) footprint.” You can see improvement in Feleipe Franks, in game-planning, and in special teams, but at the end of the day you have […]
