BEST OF MAXIM
You know someone is a team player when they take a massive hit to make a play. Reed miraculously held onto the ball, after a hit which would surely draw a fine from Commissioner Roger Goodell had they been playing in the NFL.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. There is a quiet calmness over Lerentee McCray as he stares at the TV screen. McCray is in the Gators locker room about to dress for practice.
On the screen is No. 34 for the Gators. That would be him. As a replay of Floridas 37-20 win over Tennessee three days earlier plays on the TV, ESPN announcers Brad Nessler and Todd Blackledge discuss McCrays impact on...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- No. 14 Florida fullback Trey Burton missed the Gators' 38-0 victory against Kentucky on Saturday because of back spasms.
Coach Will Muschamp said Burton awoke with the problem Friday and had shooting pain every time he stepped on his right foot.
The Gators (4-0) hardly missed Burton against Kentucky, and Florida has a week off before playing No. 2...
Florida’s faith in Jeff Driskel balloons with each win. The staff’s confidence in the sophomore first fired in the season opener against Bowling Green, when the Oviedo native racked up more snaps at quarterback than Jacoby Brissett. It continued in College Station, Texas, when he was named UF’s starting quarterback. This week, he joined Sam Robey and Sharrif Floyd in the coveted...
Jeff Driskel accounted for two touchdowns, helping No. 14 Florida beat Kentucky 38-0 Saturday and extend its winning streak to 26 in the series.The Gators (4-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) also recorded their first shutout in conference play since a 52-0 victory against Mississippi State in 2001.
The Florida Gators had a slow start in the first quarter but got it going in quarters two and three on Saturday. In the end they rolled up 38 points and gave up none in the process. Here is the game in pictures and we will contiue to update the gallery.
Both sides are doing their best not to think about the 25-game winning streak Florida has over Kentucky heading into this weekend. The Gators have won the last four matchups by at least 34 points and haven’t been threatened by the Wildcats since 2007. As Kentucky heads to Gainesville this weekend for another chance at ending the streak, no one involved in the streak wants to acknowledge it.
With the season looking hopeful so far with back-to-back road wins to open up their SEC schedule at 2-0, the Florida Gators are ranked 14th in the nation and returning to Gainesville to play the Kentucky Wildcats.The Wildcats' season so far has been a shade of grey.One week they look like a convincing SEC team beating up on the likes of Kent State, and the next they struggle...
Denny Courson and Keith Kaczorowski of the Gators and More show talk Gator football with 'Hollywood' Bob Redman. The Gators surprised a lot of folks with the way they won in Knoxville last week and now there is a new perspective on this team. After two hard road wins, the Gators are back in The Swamp this weekend to take on the Kentucky Wildcats. Listen as we talk about all of that here.
Shortly following the Vols embarrassing 37-20 loss to the Florida Gators, former Tennessee great, Leonard Little, tweeted that there is a formula to winning in the SEC, and it's quite simple... "Run the ball downhill and play good defense. That's it."
While the idea hardly seems novel, it is something more teams need to take to heart... especially...
The Florida Gators are busy helping their issues in recruiting numbers on the offensive line. Thursday they got a commitment from Nebraska transfer Tyler Moore. Moore was a four-star and 15th ranked offensive tackle in Scout.com’s 2011 class. He along with Maryland transfer max Garcia help add some needed help and maturity to a squad that has landed only six linemen in the last three years.
The Florida Gators opened up with the SEC contests in their first four games and that usually means some hard play on the field. With that hard play comes injuries and the gators are a little beat up right now. At 4-0 and with the big 38-0 victory Saturday against Kentucky, the Gators could use some time off.
The Gators remain undefeated this season as they prepare to welcome Kentucky Saturday. The Wildcats are coming off an upset loss to Western Kentucky and as Florida defensive lineman Omar Hunter puts it, "they have nothing to lose." Cody Jones and Amy Campbell discuss the upcoming match up and Florida's focus this week.
