Game 2 vs UT-Martin: I can sum up this game in 1 word: CONFIDENCE!
Sure it was frustrating to see our offense get off to a slow start, but it was the best thing these players and these coaches could've done for this team. We got to see our offense runs plays, work through progressions, get valuable reps for a young O-Line, allow our RBs to get their motors revved up and build on their CONFIDENCE levels. Against Miami's defense, this offense didn't have a chance to run the offense as effectively as they'd hoped. Miami's front 7 were too good and disrupted anything we has in the running game. With UT-Martin, you got to see them build and create momentum with each series. This is the exact reason you pay these FCS teams to come in to be your proverbial "whipping boys" and allow you to work out the kinks and prepare for the daunting SEC schedule ahead. We're 2-0 on this young season. Let's build on that and watch our Gators build on this CONFIDENCE against a teetering Kentucky team.
