2007 Opponent Previews

From Lindy's, one of the annual magazines on NCAA football, 2007 season preview:

11. FLORIDA
Rebuilding toward another big run
Welcome to the first year of the rest of your career, Urban Meyer. He became the third coach this decade to win a national championship in his second year at a school. For an encore? Cut him a bit of slack. The university can't win at everything. The Gators are just too dang young to repeat as national champs this year, but everyone could be chasing them again in 2008.
THE GOOD NEWS: Quarterback Tim Tebow, a Heisman candidate before his first start, already owns the campus. Now it's his offense, too. It will be one of the strongest in the nation with Tebow, WR Percy Harvin, WR Andre Caldwell and ? well, somebody at tailback.
THE BAD NEWS: Like Ohio State's Jim Tressel before last season, Meyer must replace nine starters on defense. Unlike Tressel, Meyer hasn't had years to groom his replacements. Expect some shootouts in The Swamp. Hey, just like the old days!
OUR CALL: There's a lot of revenge waiting out there. Trips to LSU, Kentucky and South Carolina means Gator Nation will be lucky to get a return trip to Atlanta (aka SEC East title) in this rebuilding year.
