Chauncey Gardner-Johnson on Gators’ streak over Kentucky: ‘It’ll be 32 after Saturday’

GAINESVILLE  — Florida defensive backs typically don't lack for confidence. That's certainly the case this week against Kentucky, which has a 31-game losing streak to the Gators.

"It's 31, right?" defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson said Monday. "It'll be 32 after Saturday."

"At the end of the day, they got some good players. They're disciplined. They play us hard every year. They coming in with a chip on their shoulder that they can beat us. It's going to be in The Swamp. So, at the end of the day, our team though is capable, and we know what's going to happen Saturday. We just got to go out there and play, execute our game plan and just do what we got to do."

The last guarantee I remember coming from the Gators didn't work so well. Remember when the ducks pulled the truck in Knoxville?

Regardless, coach Dan Mullen said the past is irrelevant to the SEC opener.

"I imagine someday the streak will be broken," Mullen said. "That's just the nature of sports, right? I don't want to be the one that does it."
