Florida Bold Prediction No. 4

In order for Bold Prediction No. 3 to happen, some Crimson Tide players will have to make a lot of tackles. Neutralize the Florida quarterbacks and Dan Mullen’s offense can still produce, and even score, but it can’t be explosive enough for an upset.

The Alabama football player most suited to take Emory Jones and Anthony Richardson to the ground is Will Anderson Jr. Will might be somewhat slowed against the Gators. Suspecting that Nick Saban will, at least part of the time, assign a linebacker to ‘spy’ Jones or Richardson, the prediction is the Tide’s top solo tackler in the game will be Henry To’o To’o or Christain Harris.

Florida Bold Prediction No. 5

Simple and easy is this one – Will Reichard will not miss. The PAT streak continues. If a field goal is needed in the game, a new, made streak begins.

Florida Bold Prediction No. 6

This one is a three-part prediction, structured in ‘or’ possibilities. JoJo Earle will return a punt for a touchdown OR JoJo Earle will have receptions for 100 or more yards OR JoJo Earle will make a touchdown reception.

Teammates and even Nick Saban are praising Earle’s practice performances. If any one of the three-part, JoJo predictions comes to fruition, I will celebrate in next week’s post with a JoJo musical reference.

Bonus Prediction

After Saturday, Dan Mullen will still be ‘zero-for-Saban’ as a head coach. The record will go to 0-11.

Next. Crimson Tide built for Saturday's chess game. dark

Saturday afternoon cannot get here soon enough. The most  ‘chomping’ in The Swamp will come from the Alabama Crimson Tide.
