Alligator Army's Andy Hutchins was at Kyle Field Saturday for Florida's 20-17 win over Texas A&M in the Aggies' SEC debut, and says the Gators notched the biggest win in coach Will Muschamp's tenure. Hutchins says this was a different UF team from 2011's bunch:
After the game, Muschamp noted that this Gators team did what the 2011 team might not have. "Last year, I don't know, man," Muschamp said. "I don't know if we win that game." I don't, either, but I suspect that Florida fans realized today or will realize shortly that these Gators strongly resemble the team we were going to eventually get in the Muschamp Era: A hard-running, hard-working, adjustment-acing squad that does not kill itself with mistakes. Florida fans were waiting for that team to show up, and for Florida to win a "big" game to prove it.
Jeff Driskel acquitted himself well, with several nice throws in the face of relentless Aggie pressure, and the Gators' talented defense held elusive QB Johnny Manziel in check after he found plenty of first half running room.
Meanwhile, new SBNation blog Good Bull Hunting managed to make an appearance on ESPN's College Gameday before Saturday's game with a hand-crafted sign. They'll have more from College Station, including video of A&M and Florida fans, soon.
