Vols and Gators in close contest for Reverse Mr. Universe; Gators lead 17-7

Verne Lundquist said it right just before breaking for halftime: The first half of this game would break mirrors. Just when you think it can't get anymore frustrating against the Gators, we run into the 2013 version in which they look like they've never played football before and yet, still, somehow, we look even worse. We're competing for ugliest of them all, sometimes even on the same play, for instance the one where Nathan Peterman lost grip of the football on a pass and launched a wobbler practically straight into the air that was grabbed by a defensive lineman who had a straight shot to the end zone for six but decided to fall down after 20 yards or so because he's the ugliest of them all, darnit.

The Nathan Peterman in his first start at the Swamp experiment has been an unmitigated disaster. It appears that we'll see whether Justin Worley can do any better against the vaunted Gator defense in the second half, but he's looking at a 10-point hole.
