Florida Gators QB Trey Burton On Georgia's D: 'They Were About To Tap Out’

GatorZone.com's Scott Carter shares thoughts from Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer and others on how the Gators' newfound tempo boosted their offense against Georgia. Apparently Corch got the whole idea to run an up-tempo, no-huddle offense from watching the Oregon Ducks storm up and down the field with little regard for common courtesies, then had WR coach Zach Azzanni help install the thing due to his experience working with the Central Michigan Chippewas' track meet offense.

Burton saw some of the same signs of fatigue in Georgia’s defense Saturday.

"It’s awesome,’’ said Burton, who rushed for a career-high 110 yards and scored two touchdowns. "It’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever done on offense. We try to snap the ball as fast as we can. It wears the defense down. In the first half, they were done. They were about to tap out.’’

Not that Florida is anywhere near as proficient at running an up-tempo offense that's anywhere near as well-oiled or as fast as Oregon's, but look at it this way: Oregon's opponents prepare for that high-speed buzzsaw for a week in advance or more, and still they end up looking like they've been doing nothing but reading Gregg Easterbrook. How nightmarish would it be to find yourself in the middle of a no-huddle bombardment with no real warning beforehand?

I'm just trying to find an excuse for the Dawgs defense being so unprepared for the change, I guess.
