Via Florida Gators press release
Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp announced Tuesday that the format for the 2013 Orange and Blue Debut on April 6 will be a unique open practice for fans instead of a game, due to numerous injuries which has left the Gators with just six offensive linemen. The format will be similar to the previous 14 practices the Gators have conducted this spring, with some special additions to enhance the experience for fans.
Before, during and after the practice, Muschamp will address the crowd to give them an inside look and an explanation of some of the drills and scrimmage situations the team will be running. The team will still have several 11-on-11 scrimmage periods, but there will also be periods of special teams and individual work mixed in that will closely resemble a normal Gator football practice.
The Orange and Blue Debut will air live on FOXs Sun Sports statewide from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m..
Fans living outside the state of Florida will be able to stream the event live online via www.FOXSportsFlorida.com (CLICK HERE)

The Gator offense struggled throughout the scrimmage in all facets scoring just one touchdown in the 60 minutes (clock running) of team action.
Coach Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators held their annual Orange and Blue game earlier today with some slight modifications. Numerous top tier recruits were in attendance to watch the Gators take the field for the last time until the late Summer months.
The hangover has ended. The college basketball world has moved on from the Florida Gators’ loss and so must we. We may not want to completely, but it has to happen eventually, so we might as well pull off the band-aid and realize that for the third-consecutive season, the Gators fell just one game short of the Final Four.
Without the Gators to spark our interest over the final...
