Florida Gators offensive line will have a new look in 2013

The 2012 season was a battle with inconsistency for the Gators offensive line. On one hand the team finished third in the SEC in rushing offense, averaging 188.1 yards per game, and often times ran all over their opponents with ease.

Dunbar hoping for more

Quinton Dunbar didn’t always understand what it took off the field.

That’s no longer the case. The redshirt junior has changed his mindset and could be headed for the breakout season the Gators have been waiting for.
