At the tail-end of their last season with the Gators, both tight end Jordan Reed and linebacker Jelani Jenkins suffered at the helm of injuries. However, their setbacks didn't sideline the two for this year's Pro Scout Day at UF. Both discussed their performances Tuesday as well as their decisions to hang up their orange and blue jerseys in exchange for a shot at the next level.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Now that Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease has had time to review and reflect upon his first season, he realizes there were times last season when young quarterbacks Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett may not have grasped as much as they let on.
They were in a tight battle to become the starter in an offense that featured different terminology and plays from...
First Practice: March 13
Spring Game: April 6
After a nice bounce-back season in which Florida went 11-2 and was a possible BCS Championship contender, the Gators have been gutted of experienced talent.
This doesn’t mean Will Muschamp’s squad can’t overcome this, but it’s something that must be dealt with if Florida wants to be in contention for the SEC crown in...

When Billy Donovan was darting around college basketball courts in a Providence uniform during the mid-'80s, his Friars never earned better than a 6-seed in the NCAA tournament. They never won a Big East title, regular season or tournament. There was never a target on his team's back, nor the subsequent pressure that came with it.
This, of course, came before Donovan'...

After going 7-6 in his first season, Will Muschamp certainly raised some questions. In year two, Muschamp improved to an impressive 11-2. Year three will be the most telling as Muschamp has now been through three recruiting cycles and a lot of the inherited talent has moved on. As impressive as the 11-2 season was, it ended on a down note with a 33-23 loss at the hands of former...

Spring practice is about growth and improvement, but it also allows the Florida coaching staff to try some players at different positions. This year will be no different, as head coach Will Muschamp announced those changes on Tuesday afternoon. The Gators will try to improve weaker spots on the roster by moving players from some of the stronger positions.
Will Muschamp admits it on a routine basis -- he’s young but old fashioned. Part of that is why he knows the Gators have an important part of the defense to rebuild this spring. It’s the entire middle. The Gators lost both of the starting defensive tackles, inside linebackers and safeties following last season. There’s talent on the roster, but the Gators need to develop depth this spring.
This weekend is about regaining momentum for No. 13 Florida. Head coach Billy Donovan and his players called it a big game just because it’s the next one, but the Gators have an opportunity to put the disappointing performance at Kentucky behind them this weekend in Nashville. It starts with a rematch against LSU on Friday at 1 p.m.
