The front seven of the Florida defense wasn’t the run stopping unit the Gators were hoping for in 2011. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is hoping the added year of strength and experience changes that. The pass rush can also improve. The Gators added two freshmen that should help put pressure on the quarterback. The depth in the front seven is improved after the Gators return most players.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. The quarterback battle waged by Florida sophomores Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel during preseason camp isn't over. It's simply to be continued.
Gators coach Will Muschamp announced Friday that both Brissett and Driskel will play in the Sept. 1 season opener against Bowling Green.
"I met with both quarterbacks this morning,'' Muschamp said...
2013 defensive lineman DeMarcus Walker has made his decision and it’s not good news for the Florida Gators. On Friday night, Walker committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide over the instate orange and blue. The decision isn’t surprising as many had pegged Walker as a member of Bama’s class.
Walker was on many a Florida fan’s wishlist, but fit may have played a role in his decision...
I’ve always found it humorous when people complain about athletes being cocky. To play at a high level, you must have a certain amount of confidence. Whether that’s “cocky” or not doesn’t really bother me. Future Florida Gators basketball player Chris Walker has confidence, a lot of it.
When Walker committed to play for Billy Donovan at Florida, he guaranteed a national...
Florida's quarterback competition will stretch into the season.
Coach Will Muschamp says both Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will play in next weekend's season opener against Bowling Green.
Muschamp says he hasn't decided on a starter and hasn't determined how game repetitions will be split. But he believes ''both deserve the right to play.''
Any talk about the Florida Gators recently has revolved around the quarterback “battle.” Fans want to know who the starter will be even though it realistically has never mattered (at least initially). I don’t say that in a condescending, smack-yourself-for-thinking-there-will-be-a-true-starter way, but deep down everyone had to have known what was ultimately coming – that...
After countless scrimmages, practices, meetings and evaluations, Florida's quarterback competition remains a dead heat.
So coach Will Muschamp has decided to play two.
Muschamp said Friday that both Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will play in next week's season opener against Bowling Green.
''They both deserve the right to play,'' Muschamp said. '...
No. 23 Florida is going with Jeff Driskel at quarterback.
Coach Will Muschamp says Driskel will start Saturday's game at Texas A&M and could keep the job for the remainder of the season.
Muschamp picked Driskel over fellow sophomore Jacoby Brissett, saying Driskel's mobility was the key to the decision.
Muschamp says ''it will be Jeff's game to play. I...

With their kickoff of the 2012 college football season a week away, the Florida Gators go into their game against Bowling Green without knowing who will start the game at quarterback. The competition is between Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett. Driskell has been nursing a bruised shoulder since August 12 and has...
This is generally a slow time of year with recruiting news, although a few new offers have been handed out over the past couple of weeks. Last weekend, 2015 safety Hunter Dale (John Curtis Christian) visited the Florida Gators and departed from Gainesville with an offer in hand (his third) from head coach Will Muschamp. What is happening around the state with recruiting and jamboree action?
