LSU vs. Florida 2012: Gators fans react to 5-0 record

The Florida Gators are 5-0 despite having slow starts in all five of those games. They are finishing strong and proving there isn't a team in the nation they can't compete with. That's not bad for a group that came into the season with a bit of uncertainty, planning to run a two-quarterback system.

All of that is just about forgotten now, especially after the Gators pulled off a 14-6 win against the LSU Tigers Saturday. Like Andy Hutchins at Alligator Army wrote Sunday morning, it's the best win of the Will Muschamp era.

Let's get down to the important stuff, though. This is the SEC, so at the end of the day, the discussion goes back to defense. Here's Hutchins:

I guess a stingy front seven plus a stingy secondary equals an elite defense? Or maybe the qualification for that is being yet to give up more than 20 points in 2012? Or is it giving up no points in the fourth quarter and one touchdown in the second half? Can someone tell me what, exactly, makes an elite defense, or do I just get to tell you that Florida's is that and have you believe me?

Whether you believe him or not, after Saturday, LSU could tell you how it feels.
