Florida Gators concerned about Mathieu

LSU sophomore cornerback Tyrann Mathieu has the full attention of Florida coach Will Muschamp.

“Just an electric guy on the field,” Muschamp said of Mathieu. “[He] plays with great energy; tough, hard-nosed, great blitzer. Has just a knack for getting the ball off people as far as strips are concerned and interceptions. Just one of those guys that shows up in the right spots regardless of what’s being asked of him.”
The New Orleans native is being mentioned for Heisman consideration.

The Gators are right to be concerned, as reports. Mathieu leads a deep Tiger defense with 35 tackles, four pass breakups, an interception, 1 1/2 sacks and four forced fumbles.
To put that last number in perspective, the whole Florida Gators defense has forced four fumbles or the year.

Mathieu has two fumble return TDs.

Les Miles explained the force that is Mathieu in a way that only we can, reports:

"We saw it in camp, that aggressiveness and want to compete even in high school,'' Miles said. "That allowed us to be very comfortable and anticipate that he’d be that kind of player in college. What happens with guys that make those kind of plays routinely, they envision each play as an opportunity to make a great play and if it just happens they are put in that position, they saw that great play they were about to make even before it ever happened. And I think there are few of those. Patrick Peterson certainly was one. I think there are a number of guys on our team who see it that way. But I don’t know that anybody predicts that until you get them on our campus and see it routinely. Really in the first year he showed he was that kind of player.,' he was quoted as saying.

Still, Florida with the speedy Demps and Rainey, will find a way to produce. Look for punt returns and flea-flicker trickery to put 14 points on the board. After that, it'll be all smash mouth football, which Tigers coach Les Miles prefers anyway.
Prediction: LSU 24, Florida 17.
