Florida starting offensive tackle Tyler Moore is going to miss the rest of the season with a broken wrist. The Gators already lost starting left tackle DJ Humphries and tackle Chaz Green to injuries earlier in the year, so they are dealing with a very thin offensive line. Considering Moore suffered his injury while riding […]
This Florida Gators fan is clearly nuts for football. In fact, he was so focused on the game (or camera) against Georgia that he didn’t feel the peanut shells just casually sitting there on his head, courtesy of the fan behind him:

Florida returns to The Swamp this weekend for it's homecoming game against Vanderbilt and junior defensive tackle Darious Cummings talks about the team's outlook on the rest of the season.
