Florida -vs- Tennessee: No Contest.

There has been a lot of hype over today's SEC tilt between Tennessee and Florida. Most of that quasi buildup comes from first year Vols coach Lane Kiffin and his press conference prediction of a UT victory over the Gators. I caught myself being a little intrigued by this game until I considered that the Vegas line is Florida by thirty points. More than four touchdowns. The game is being played at the Swamp in Gainesville, the Gators still have Tebow, and Tennessee is re-building. They are not "built" yet by any stretch. I'm not sure I would take Florida and give up the full 30, but they will nevertheless handle the Volunteers without ever missing a beat. Forget the hype, throw out the expectations of a great SEC clash; this one will be over before the first quarter ends.
