On Friday, it became official.
In one of their biggest matches of the season, a usual strength for the Gators turned into a weakness.
As they suit up for a match, opposite hitters Lauren Bledsoe and Callie Rivers don't know what to expect any more.
More times than not, there is someone else to thank for one's success.
Last season Kelly Murphy broke the school record for most triple-doubles in a career, this season she broke the school record for most triple-doubles in one weekend.
After running out to a 22-19 lead in the third set, the Gators allowed the Crimson Tide back into the match as the set went back and forth until sophomore outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel knocked down three kills to help No. 10 Florida (17-3, 11-2 Southeastern Conference) take charge and eventually win the set 33-31.
After falling two games behind the Southeastern Conference lead, Florida knew it had to win all of its remaining matches to get back in the race.
Since showing their imperfections against LSU, the Gators have been flawless.
