Opponents Are Covering the Spread

No fullback to knock down blitzing linebackers or corners. Receivers forced to block linebackers. Eighteen sacks, most given up in the SEC. The Gators have one touchdown in games against quality teams (Tennessee and Alabama), that coming on a trick play. It has become painfully evident that Urban Meyer's spread offense isn't working and may never work in the SEC, where the players are bigger and run faster than they do in the Mountain West or Mid-American conferences.
