GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- On more than one occasion since he became Florida's head coach, Will Muschamp has made it clear he has about as much use for the star system created by recruiting services as a linebacker that doesn't like to get his jersey dirty.
He prefers the eyeball test and developing a relationship with potential recruits.
Still, four games into the college career...
When Florida Gators running back Mike Gillislee (Florida’s first 1,000 yard rusher since 2004) graduated in the spring, it seemed there would be nothing to worry about, because it was clear who his heir apparent was at the position. Despite the arrival of highly touted freshman Kelvin Taylor and Adam Lane, it was always Matt Jones’ job to lose. Jones served as Gillislee’s backup...

Florida is coming off a 24-7 win against the Kentucky Wildcats. Arkansas fell last week to No. 10 Texas A&M by a score of 45-33.
This is the first meeting...
No. 18 Florida is methodical, deliberate, calculated and predictable. Some might even say the Gators are boring to watch.
They're running the football nearly 70 percent of the time this season, an effort to wear down opponents, keep the clock ticking and conserve their defense.
It's old-school football - simple, keep-away philosophy - and the Gators (3-1, 2-0 Southeastern...

According to ESPN The Magazine’s “Franchise Issue,” college football and basketball is all about the Florida Gators.
Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease understood the situation. He was dealing with a quarterback preparing for his first career start and wanted a way to clear Tyler Murphy’s mind. He didn’t want the junior quarterback dwelling on his preparation before the night game at Kentucky, so he came up with a creative plan to keep Murphy’s mind from being only on football.

There was a lot to like about the 27th win in a row for the Florida Gators over Kentucky. There were also a few things that need some work. We take a look at those inside on the message boards at FightinGators.com.
Florida head coach Will Muschamp called Arkansas center Travis Swanson the best center the Gators will face this year. On Tuesday, senior defensive tackle Damien Jacobs called Swanson and the Arkansas offensive line dirty. The Gators are preparing for a physical offensive line on Saturday, and after their early film study, Florida knows it has to be smart after the whistle.
Bob Redman has been working for or writing about the Florida Gators going on 19 years. He has attended most and watched all of the Florida games since 1985. Here is a look -- prepared specifically for HI.com -- from the FightinGators.com managing editor as the Gators head into the showdown with Arkansas on Saturday in The Swamp.
The Florida Gators have placed a premium on the offensive line recruiting for the class of 2014. With Dontae Angus, Taven Bryan, Travaris Dorsey and Nolan Kelleher all listed on the offensive line the Gator coaches have plenty of options. With Taven Bryan expected to start on the defensive side of the ball that leaves the Gators with three offensive linemen and looking for more.
The Florida running game struggled to start the season. Matt Jones was battling back from a viral infection and the offensive line was banged up, struggling to put the healthy unit on the field. As the Gators prepare for Arkansas this Saturday, they have their healthy offensive line with Jones off his best game of the season. The healthy offensive line has jumpstarted Florida’s rushing attack.
One player in the middle of the Florida defensive line can’t fill the loss of Dominique Easley. The versatility of Jonathan Bullard could fill some of the role. The Florida staff used him some at defensive tackle during the first three games with Easley on the field, but after Easley's season-ending ACL tear last week, Bullard played more reps than before at defensive tackle...
