JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Florida's defense was statistically pretty good this season.
The Gators ranked in the top 25 nationally in scoring defense, passing defense, and total defense. They were second nationally in third-down defense.
But Florida had compiled those numbers while going 6-6, including 0-4 in an October that included the two teams that will be playing in the BCS National Championship Game later this week. So how much did those stats and rankings really mean?
