Florida will not emerge as the number one ranked team in the country next week. Nevertheless, I think they may be the best team in the country right now. After their embarrassing loss to Ole Miss, something snapped inside Tebow and his teammates (click here to see what Tebow said after the loss).
Since that loss, the Gators put up 51 points against the number 4 team in the nation (LSU) and 49 points against the number 6 team in the nation (Georgia). I think the Gators are likely to win their remaining regular season games. Their last big test will likely be Alabama in the SEC championship. If they beat Alabama and if there is no more one undefeated team in the country, then they will deserve a shot at the title. We’ll have to wait and see.

P.S. That being said, I think Texas Tech’s victory tonight over the Texas Longhorns may be the best game I’ve seen all year. Unbelievable.
