Here is a little Florida Gators football history lesson. Everyone pay attention.In the early 1980s, Wayne Peace led the Gators to respectability. Peace gave way to Kerwin Bell toward the end of the decade.Bell turned the reins over to Shane Matthews, when passed the torch to Danny Wuerfell.Wuerfell became Tim Tebow and Tebow has become Jeff Driskel.Now that I have your attention and all the good quarterbacks who have come through Gainesville in the last 33 years, let’s concentrate on the team Will Muschamp is fielding this year.The Gators turned everyone’s heads by finishing so strong in the SEC last season, to the tune of a Sugar Bowl invitation where Charlie Strong and his Louisville team proved how elite they were.This season, I believe the Gators could be better than last season, but the record will not reflect that. And a schedule in the SEC that won’t be easy. While the team avoids Alabama, LSU, Georgia, South Carolina and Missouri will give this team fits.Add Miami and FSU to...

Chomp! Chomp! 2013 Florida Gators Preview

Like a lot of seasons the Florida Gators are where they are used to be: ranked, one of three favorites for the SEC East and therefore a place in the SEC Championship, off a Top-5 recruiting class (meaning there's MORE great talent coming through). But unlike other seasons (particularly under a certain Mr Meyer and Mr Spurrier), there are still some massive questions around the...

Video: Florida Basketball Center Patric Young Shows Off His Serious Football Skills

Florida Gators center Patric Young, of course, loves playing on the hardwood. But his athleticism, combined with his 6-foot-9, 250 pound body, could be well suited for other sports besides basketball. Young realized this, and decided to take his talents to the football field. Young practiced with several Gators football players, trying himself out at numerous positions: quarterback...

Florida's Garcia, Thurman cleared to practice

Banged-up Florida is getting a little healthier on offense. Offensive linemen Max Garcia (back) and Trip Thurman (shoulder) were cleared to practice Monday, giving the Gators a couple big bodies back for fall practice. Guard Jon Halapio, who has a partially torn pectoral muscle, is still out at least another week. And running back Matt Jones remains sidelined while recovering from...

Gators Invade South Florida

One of the most fertile recruiting area's in the nation is South Florida. A territory, once thought to be impenetrable by anyone other than the Miami Hurricanes is being invaded by Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators.

Gators trying to be explosive

The Florida offense under Will Muschamp won’t ever be a high-flying attack. The Gators want balance, controlling the clock with toughness through the run game. There’s still plenty of room for improvement through the air, and Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease thinks it will happen this year. The Gators have a second-year starting quarterback and a maturing group of playmakers.

Gators get OL Max Garcia, Trip Thurman back to practice

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Banged-up Florida is getting a little healthier on offense. Offensive linemen Max Garcia (back) and Trip Thurman (shoulder) were cleared to practice Monday, giving the Gators a couple big bodies back for fall practice. Guard Jon Halapio, who has a partially torn pectoral muscle, is still out at least another week. And running back Matt Jones remains sidelined...

Confusion helps the Florida defensive line

Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease loves confusion. It’s the basis of his offense -- using pre-snap shifts and motions to confuse the defense and keep them off balance. When he’s looking at the other side of the ball in practice this fall, Pease sees some similar dynamics. The Gators have pieces on the defensive line that can be lined up in different areas to confuse the...

Muschamp happy with first scrimmage

The Gators got their first scrimmage of fall camp under their belt on Saturday in The Swamp. The Florida coaches tried to simulate a game day atmosphere as much as possible after spending the previous week of practice working with a hands on approach. The scrimmage provided some standout players, especially from the young players, but also showed areas that need improvement.

Notes on the Florida freshmen

The Florida coaching staff expected multiple players from the highly regarded 2013 recruiting class to push for playing time this fall. After the first scrimmage of the fall on Saturday, the Gators are seeing freshmen emerge at multiple positions, starting with Ahmad Fulwood and Demarcus Robinson, who will provide immediate help to a passing game that desperately needs it.
