As you can imagine, the past 48 hours, and the last week of college football have been difficult ones for fans of both the New York Yankees and the Florida Gators. The Yankees, thanks to swarms of bugs, are now down 2 games to none in the ALDS. Last week, Florida played an uninspiring home game and lost to an Audburn team that they should have beaten- losing what should have been a statement game at home was doubly disappointing.
Yet both teams can redeem themselves very quickly- Florida faces #1 LSU in death valley, and it’s pretty much a make or break game. Win, and national championship hopes remain alive. Lose, and those championship hopes are dashed. Can the Gator Offensive Line contain LSU’s freakish Glenn Dorsey? Hopefully, the Gators will change their run/pass attack from last week’s lackluster performance. The Gators need to establish the run APART from Tim Tebow, and Ketsahn Moore should get more touches, in my opinion.
The Yankees return to the Stadium where they will rely on aging veterans Roger Clemens and Mike Mussina to salvage the season, and force a game 5 in Cleveland. If anything, hopefully the Yanks will be playing with a chip on their shoulder, and not go out with a whimper. In what seems like an annual occurance, the Yankee bats are flaming out just when it matters…..dohhh!
