Florida has played two lesser opponents so far, with two routs (more or less). Some preseason questions have been answered, but there are still some unknowns headed into the SEC schedule:

WHAT WE KNOW
Tim Tebow is the real deal. He has dominated both games, whether throwing or passing. His passes have been decisive, strong, and on the money, He is a true dual-threat. He's also hard to bring down in the pocket, can escape pressure, and hasn't turned the ball over. What more can you ask?

WHAT WE DON'T KNOW
Can Tebow do it against tougher competition? His receivers have been wide open, for the most part, and Tebow hasn't had to face an SEC-caliber defensive line. When the pressure comes faster, and receivers are covered better, will Tebow rise to the challenge?

WHAT WE KNOW
The Gator defense is talented but inconsistent. They have looked great at times, swarming to the ball and creating havoc in the backfield. They've also looked clueless at times, giving up chunks of yardage and easy scores. LB Brandon Spikes is clearly the linch pin of the defense. He's going to lead the way in tackles as long as he's in the game. 

WHAT WE DON'T KNOW
Who else in going to step up and play consistent defense? LB Dustin Doe had another solid game vs. Troy, but has also made some glaring mistakes. Others have made good plays here and there but none are consistently dominating against lesser competition.

WHAT WE KNOW
Special Teams is going to win Florida some ball games this year. Brandon James is a special return man and will consistently give Florida excellent field position, and is a home run threat ever time he gets the ball. Punt blocking seems to be a UF specialty now. 

WHAT WE DON'T KNOW
How good UF's new FG kicker and punter are. They haven't had much work, but what we've seen is good. Consistency there, and UF's special teams will be its best ever under Urban Meyer.

WHAT WE KNOW
UF appears to be the best team in the East so far. South Carolina's impressive win at Athens may mean the Gamecocks could challenge for the East, but we're a long way from Atlanta.

WHAT WE DON'T KNOW
Is Tennessee any good? They've struggled in both their games so far, albeit against stronger competition than Florida has faced. Is Georgia as good as they played against Oklahoma State, or as bad as they played against the Gamecocks? The picture will get a little clearer starting next week.
