The Florida secondary has been a great uit this year. You would think giving up zero passing yards would mean big things, but when the other team also racks up 429 rushing yards things can get unsavory as they did. Florida senior defensive back Cody Riggs talks about the issues the guys had Saturday night in the 26-20 loss to Georgia Southern
Cody Riggs spent all but one play of the Missouri game sitting alone in the Florida locker room. After being ejected for a targeting penalty on the first play of the game, Riggs sat in the locker room while watching the game on a laptop. With family members that traveled all the way from Florida to Missouri to watch the game, the targeting penalty was especially frustrating to Riggs.
Things didn’t go well for the Florida Gators and Will Muschamp on Saturday against the Missouri Tigers. On the first play of the game, Cody Riggs was kicked out of the game for targeting. Basically nothing went well for Muschamp. Muschamp called the offense totally inept. He was disappointed in the run game, pass protection, and the offense in general. Muschamp described the time...
On the Missouri Tigers' very first play from scrimmage, Florida Gators safety Cody Riggs was ejected for targeting. The next play was a Tigers' touchdown.
Game time: 7 p.m.

"You guys like to run the ball a lot," Riggs wrote.
White's response: "I know."

Cody Riggs isn’t a traditional safety. His 5-9, 184-pound frame keeps him from playing in the box to stop the run as often as other safeties, but what he lacks in size, Riggs make up for with his knowledge of the defense and aggressive mindset. The Gators will need him to take one of the starting safety positions after losing both from last year, and Riggs is already turning heads in camp.
Jabari Gorman and Cody Riggs were on top of the depth chart at safety to start spring practice, but the goal was to build depth and add bodies capable of playing safety during the fall. An injury to Riggs gave extra reps to younger players, and while the Gators wait for three freshmen safeties to get to campus in the summer, this spring gave an opportunity for the returning players to win the job.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- No. 18 Florida will be without linebacker Jelani Jenkins and cornerback Cody Riggs at No. 23 Tennessee on Saturday.
Jenkins had surgery on his right thumb Monday. He injured it in the first series at Texas A&M and spent much of the game in a cast and sling. Coach Will Muschamp says Antonio Morrison will start in Jenkins' place against the Volunteers...
