GAINESVILLE — Jordan Sherit's time at Florida is dwindling. Before the season started, he said he knew it.And in his team's 45-7 win over Kentucky on Saturday, he played like it.A graduate of Hillsborough High, Sherit led the Gators (2-0, 1-0 SEC) with two sacks and had five tackles in UF's rout of the visiting Wildcats (0-2, 0-1). And while much will be made of Florida's 45-point offensive revival, Sherit and the Gators' defense was just as dominant."I think our defense obviously gave us opportunities," UF coach Jim McElwain said, "which we didn't have last week."Those opportunities started on Kentucky's first play from scrimmage.As Drew Barker dropped back to pass, linebacker Alex Anzalone strolled through the offensive line unblocked and put Barker on his back for a 6-yard loss.Anzalone led the Gators with six tackles and added 11/2 sacks."Alex is a special player," McElwain said. "I'm sure glad he's healthy and playing at the level he's playing."On the day, UF held Kentucky to 149 total yards.And as for Barker, he struggled one week after putting up big numbers.In his team's season-opening loss to Southern Miss, the redshirt sophomore went 15-of-24 passing for 323 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Against Florida, he went 2-of-10 for 10 yards and three interceptions.Some of his difficulties could be attributed to Florida's talented secondary, like when junior cornerback Jalen Tabor jumped a screen pass in the second quarter or when junior corner Quincy Wilson grabbed a one-handed interception on a deep pass down the sideline.But some of Barker's other difficulties, like misfiring on a pass over the middle and hitting the waiting chest of UF safety Marcus Maye to open the second half, were not as forgivable. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops pulled Barker in favor of redshirt junior Stephen Johnson early in the third quarter.While Stoops said it was his plan to play Johnson all along, he also admitted Barker struggled.Regardless, things didn't get much better for the Wildcats after the switch, even as Florida pulled some of its starters.Jojo Kemp got Kentucky on the scoreboard with a 2-yard run with 4:27 left. However, the Wildcats threw as many interceptions (three) as completions and got sacked five times, leading to a feeling of satisfaction from Florida defensive tackle Caleb Brantley."Last week we were kind of flat," he said. "We played down to the opponent's level. This week, I don't feel like that was the issue."
