      Its not like that at all. If you watched Florida at all this year, youd know that their defense won a lot of games for them. They played in a lot of carefully measured games and along those lines there werent a lot of big plays. Who is the one responsible for giving up the big play a lot of the time? Thats right, its the safety. Dont get me wrong, UF had a good DLine and that helps but that doesnt change the fact that when there was a play to be made, Nelson made it. The only time I remember seeing him whiff was in the NC game when Pittman scored that TD....but when that happened a lot of UF fans were stunned because Nelson would normally make that play. Im a little worried that Nelson just had a good year last year...that it was the highwater mark for him but if last year is an indication of the kind of player he is, he is definitely someone we'd want and no, Meriweather isnt as good as Nelson...again going by what we saw last year.
