There wasn’t much debate that the Florida defense won almost every area of Saturday’s open practice, but there were still individual players on the Florida offense that had good days. The Gators showed the ability to run the ball against a stout front seven, and while the passing game will need work before the opener on September 1, head coach Will Muschamp remains happy with where his team is.

One player that has definitely been through the highs and the lows of Florida football is senior offensive tackle Xavier Nixon. The Fayetteville (NC) native started off strong in 2009 when the Gators went 13-1 and he finished with a freshman All-American season. Since then the Gators have struggled and he has struggled with his health and play on the field. That should change in 2012.
TCU added their third highly regarded transfer on Friday when former Florida Gator wide receiver JaJuan Story chose to transfer to the Frogs.
Jacoby Brissett saw more time and reps at quarterback in the last week while Jeff Driskel dealt with his shoulder injury, but Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease doesn’t think that gives him an advantage. The two sophomores continue to battle for the starting job as the Gators will hold their second scrimmage of the fall Friday afternoon. Pease doesn’t see a leader at this...
