Florida's new offense won't be complete without a top-flight WR

Since then, the Gators have qualified for 29 bowl games (they've only missed going on a bowl trip four times since 1980) and won two national titles. The 2014 season, that ended in seven straight...

Sophomore receivers adding depth

Quinton Dunbar and Solomon Patton provided most of the playmaking for the Gators at receiver last season, but there wasn’t much depth behind them. This spring showed that things will change during the 2014 season. Florida’s trio of sophomore receivers will all be heavily involved in Kurt Roper’s new offense.

Georgia Southern stuns Florida 26-20 in Swamp

Kevin Ellison ran for two touchdowns, Jerick McKinnon had a huge score late and Georgia Southern stunned Florida 26-20 Saturday in what will go down as the worst loss in school history. No lower-division team had ever beaten the Gators, who won their previous seven games against Football Championship Subdivision teams by an average of 45 points. So this was a shocker, even though...

Pease happy with options at receiver

The weapons are there for Brent Pease. Florida’s second-year offensive coordinator is comfortable with the playmakers he has to work with after an offseason search for a more dynamic passing game. The emergence of redshirt junior Quinton Dunbar is a big part of it, but the addition of freshmen Ahmad Fulwood and Demarcus Robinson gives the Gators a deep threat this season.

Dunbar hoping for more

Quinton Dunbar didn’t always understand what it took off the field. He put in the effort expected of him on the practice field and spent the necessary time in the playbook, but when it came to the weight room, he only wanted to do the minimum. 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.

Which freshman receiver will emerge for the Florida Gators?

(Photo credit: Kim Klement – USA Today Sports) There is no question that the Florida Gators passing game has struggled mightily over the past few seasons. One of the main reasons for those struggles has been the lack of production and playmaking ability from the wide receivers.

Dunbar: Too Talented Not to Win

Sophomore receiver Quinton Dunbar was adamant Thursday that the Florida Gators of 2011 had too much talent on the field not to produce at a higher level. Dunbar believes that a new attitude has started to enter in the ranks and the 2012 version of the Florida Gators will be a lot different team.
