Football’s not hard, so (almost) each week we will bring you a grossly over-simplified piece called the Broken Down Volvo Keys to Victory.
It feels like it should be Auburn week, but thanks to conference expansion and a rejiggered schedule, it’s Vanderbilt that gets sandwiched slap-dab in between LSU and
Georgia South Carolina. This one is what some folks might call a trap game.
How do you avoid getting trapped by a trap game? There’s a reason coaches talk like coaches: “Take it one game at a time.” Specifically? Here’s how Florida beats Vanderbilt on Saturday.
- Do not do too many stupid things. It’s Vanderbilt, so you can probably get away with a handful of silly penalties and a turnover here and there. Don’t do what Missouri is doing in that picture, though. That’s bad. Vanderbilt is not good enough to beat Florida, but Florida is…
- Actually, that’s pretty much the long and short of it right there. Play your game. Don’t think you can just roll your helmet out there and win. All that stuff.
The only other thing the Gators can do to make Saturday a success is not get any players hurt or arrested. Say all you want about “one game at a time” but we’ve got a big one coming up next week.
