KELVIN TAYLOR NEWS

This, that and the other

With the start of spring football practice now less than three weeks away, some random thoughts on the Gators: Much is going to be made of the quarterback competition between true sophomore Treon Harris and redshirt freshman Will Grier, but the battle for the starting tailback role could be just as intense. Some seem to think that Kelvin Taylor clearly will be No. 1, but Adam Lane...

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- His former boss was in Florida attending to his new job. Tim Skipper was in Colorado performing his job as linebackers coach at Colorado State. When Jim McElwain struck a deal to become Florida's head coach prior to Colorado State's appearance in the Las Vegas Bowl last month, Skipper and the rest of the Rams' coaching staff pondered their futures the way Will...

Gators aiming to cap frustrating stretch with a positive ending

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- They know what people are saying. They have seen it from fans on social media. They have been asked about it by the media. They have heard family and friends debate whether to go or sit this one out. When the Gators reported to camp nearly five months ago, not one coach or player stood up and proclaimed, "Birmingham Bowl here we come." The Gators desperately...

As Jim McElwain settles in, Gators try to stand out

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Offensive lineman Chaz Green is preparing for his final game at Florida. A fifth-year senior, Green has experienced all his 6-foot-5, 300-pound frame can carry at one time during his Gators career. Recruited by Urban Meyer, Green dressed for every game during Meyer's final season in 2010 but did not play. In 2011, Green started nine games and was named to the...

Does Will Muschamp Survive As Coach At Florida?

Entering the 2014 season many had Will Muschamp high on their list for coaches on the hot seat. After dropping to 3-3 after a disastrous loss to Missouri, in a game where the Tigers had 120 yards of offense but scored every other way imaginable, many felt Coach Boom would not finish the season. A couple of SEC wins, highlighted by the rout of Georgia, have calmed things a bit as...

Gators looking for back-to-back SEC victories in trip to Vanderbilt

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Gators arrived here early Friday evening for their game Saturday night at Vanderbilt.

Vanderbilt defeated the Gators on Homecoming at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, 34-17, snapping a 22-game losing streak to Florida. It was one of the low points of...

Florida finds confidence, identity in 38-20 win

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida found two things on offense Saturday that it had long been missing: confidence and identity. Maintaining both will be critical for the Gators down the stretch. ''A lot of our issues offensively have been confidence, have been timidity,'' Muschamp said following a 38-20 win against then-ninth-ranked Georgia on Saturday. ''For whatever reason, whether...

Florida Chomps Georgia 38-20: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

As a kid growing up in a Gator-friendly home, it pained my father to see the gators get their butts handed to them. Steve Spurrier changed all of that, once I got into college. Urban Meyer (although many Gator Nation members do not recognize him) continued the tradition and of late the play has been so poor, fans would have done anything to see Will Muschamp walk the plank in Gainesville...
