Video: Florida WR Solomon Patton Returns Kickoff 100 Yards Against Mizzou

Florida’s offense gained just 61 yards in the first half against Missouri. But if the Gators can get a few more special teams touchdowns, they might escape Columbia with an upset win. Senior wideout Solomon Patton returned the opening kickoff of the second half over 100 yards to bring the Gators to within three of the Tigers – 13-10. Patton wasn’t even touched.

Florida football: Gators lose second straight game

Florida entered the game with hopes of regaining control of the SEC East, but those hopes were quickly forgotten as Missouri dominated the...

The Tailgater college football week 8 picks

College football week 8 picks Most of our picks last week converged, meaning we would either sink or swim by the results of the Saturday games. Luckily for all of us, most of those choices came through, highlighted by Missouri’s upset of Georgia. Ultimately, though, I pulled even with Zach in the overall standings after I laid the points with Texas A&M and fell for the decision...

Louisville vs. Central Florida: Predicted Impact Players

Offense – With recent news of junior wide receiver DeVante Parker suiting up in pads for practice this week I think it’s safe to feel pretty good about his availability against Central Florida Friday night. Since Parker does nothing but catch touchdowns, I’m pretty certain he’ll be very effective for the Cards. Since going down with a shoulder injury in the first quarter...

Bill Murray is a Gator fan because he filmed Caddyshack in Florida

Bill Murray, the famous actor, made an appearance on ESPN and picked the Florida Gators over the Missouri Tigers. He claimed it was because they shot the film Caddyshack in Florida and he loved the weather. He also said he filmed a movie in Missouri and it rained the whole time. He also beat the heck out of Lee Corso dressed as a Seminole and picked Clemson to beat FSU. We love you...

Rookies Murphy, Snell taking it all in with Bulls

When Erik Murphy heard his name called by Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver in the second round of June's NBA draft the first phone call he received was from Gar Forman a standard call to receive for any draftee. But the second call Murphy received was a bit more surprising. "Jo called me Joakim (Noah)" Murphy said during today's Bulls Day at Comcast SportsNet....

Muschamp disappointed in both sides

There wasn’t much that went as planned for the Gators on Saturday. Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy missed practice until Thursday this week but played through a shoulder injury. While the offense struggled to find its rhythm, the Florida defense couldn’t hold up its end of the bargain. The Gators gave up 500 yards for the first time since 2007.

Donovan wants more from Finney-Smith

The Gators have started to take more transfers in recent years, and every time Billy Donovan decides to add one to his team, the same thing happens. During the year the player is sitting out because of NCAA rules, the hype builds. Players suddenly gain expectations outside the program that aren’t what is expected out of him by the coaching staff and his teammates.

‘Inept offensively’

Will Muschamp wanted to see positive strides on the offense, but they haven’t come this season. If anything, the offense has gotten worse. The Gators have tried to create yardage different ways on the ground or through the air without any success. Florida has a bye week to figure out some changes on offense before facing Georgia, but as of now, there isn’t much to build on.
