Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

Does the old football adage that "good teams are built from the lines out" apply to the 2013 Florida Gators?

Offensive line hold the key?: They probably hold the key to the offense, but this Gators team will ride it's defense as long as it can for as far as it will take them. But not having Xaiver Nixon around is addition by subtraction as far as I'm concerned. (David Jones, Florida Today)

Trenton Brown makes teammates feel small: That tends to happen when you're a 6-foot-8, 363 pound offensive lineman. (Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun)

Players talk about Brown's size: Some of these quotes are pretty funny. (Jason Lieser, GatorBytes/The Palm Beach Post)

Open practice recap: Jeff Driskel looked as comfortable as he's ever been, Demarcus Robinson stole the show and D.J. Humphries held his own against Dante Fowler Jr. and Ronald Powell. (Zach Abolverdi, The Gainesville Sun)

Gators trying to eliminate penalties: Yeah, the only difference between this article and the one I wrote a few days ago is well, I wrote one a few days ago. (Michael DiRocco, GatorNation/ESPN)

Loucheiz Purifoy can do it: He's ready to accept the challenge that we talked about yesterday. (Jesse Simonton, The Miami Herald)

Recruiting mailbag: Dalvin Cook is awesome. (Zach Abolverdi, Gator Prospectus/GatorSports)

Little League World Series: So excited that it's back. The Tennessee-Connecticut game last night was pretty good. And just think, there is at least one future MLB Hall of Famer playing on one of the United States' teams.
