The Gators have defied all odds this season. Not even the most diehard Gator fans saw a 5-0 start to the SEC schedule, with major road victories and second half comebacks.
At the start of the season, the quarterback and coaching situations were each being questioned. Both of these positions are now viewed as strengths that are heading the team in the right direction.
Will Muschamp’s style of physical play, modeled after Alabama and LSU, were being questioned whether it would succeed at a place like Florida, where the fans have grown accustomed to airing it out.
Jeff Driskel was in the middle of a battle with Jacoby Brissett that lasted through Fall practice. Throughout the battle Driskel was seen by members of the media as the clear number two behind Brissett.
Muschamp and Driskel have each proven their worth to a Gator fan base that is now welcoming the possibility of playing for an SEC championship. A possibility that would be a reality if the Gators can stay focused and win their next two games against South Carolina and Georgia.
If the Gators are able to win the next two, they would have mathematically clinched the SEC East title going into their final conference game against Missouri. Winning both games would take out the possibility of having to worry about tie-breakers or the need for another team to lose.
The Gators have complete control of what would become a special season. The next two games will determine how the 2012 football season will be viewed.
