An interesting stat --
The Gators have played the Tide 5 times for the SEC Championship. EVERYTIME the team that scores first goes on to trail at half and ultimately lose the game
You have a source on your Harvin news? I've heard doubtful all morning but nothing definitive.
Here's another interesting stat for you: Florida has only trailed in one game all year, the Ole Miss loss.
I think these teams are VERY even. They both have great offenses and great defenses. I think the team that scores on defense/special teams/whatever wins the game. Field position will be very important. I wouldn't make a big deal out of the fact that Alabama will control the clock though. The Gators have lost the time of position aspect of the game in most games this season.
With that said, I'll make the homer pick and take Florida to cover, with or without Harvin.
(Watch out for Deonte Thompson if Harvin doesn't play. He was a HUGE athlete recruit who plays WR for Florida and looks to play the role of Harvin if he doesn't play.)
Not definite I guess, but pretty telling. Agree on Thompson though. Watch out for Demps and Rainey running
