This is the GatorBait.net Hot 11. Marty Cohen, Thomas Goldkamp, Mike Hodge, Keith Niebuhr and Mark Wheeler have reviewed the first two games of the football season to vote on this edition of the Hot 11. It consists of the 11 most valuable players, in our opinion, to this point in the season. Each member votes on a top 11, then points are
awarded on a sliding scale: 1st place vote = 11 points, 2nd place = 10 points, etc... (Total points and 1st place votes in parenthesis).
Season Totals: 20 tackles (12 solo). 3 interceptions for 42 yards..
Comment: Black not only leads the team in total tackles and interceptions, he is a team leader of the defense and all but single handily kept the Gators in the first half of Saturday's contest against USF.
Season Totals: 35-of-56 (62.5%) for 285-yards with 4 touchdowns & 0 interceptions. 5 rushes
for -25 yards rushing.
Comment: If you would have been told before the start of the season that Brantley would be this low, you would have guessed it was because the Florida offense was struggling. You would be right. He has been a steady at best, inconsistent at worst. It is as though he has been playing it safe.
