Trey Burton likes his role: Who wouldn't? Lots of touches. But he's got to do something this year because that Kentucky game was, at this point, so long ago. (John Boothe, The Gainesville Sun)

Joker Phillips gets to work: The receivers should have a better year. They've got a legit receivers coach (Phillips), an experienced quarterback (Jeff Driskel) and the same offensive coordinator for more than what seems to be like six months (Brent Pease). (Zach Abolverdi, The Gainesville Sun)

Ronald Powell is playing great: All reports are that he's back and better then ever after his two ACL surgeries. That would obviously be huge for the defense. Maybe the best news of this entire piece? Was the fact that I was reminded yet again that RoPo is only a junior, albeit a redshirt. (Edgar Thompson, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)

Tight ends vying for playing time: Kent Taylor and Colin Thompson are their names. Remember them. (Chris Harry, GatorZone)

Gators' have toughest schedule: According to Phil Steele's rankings, the Gators will play the toughest schedule in the country. That happens every year and is business as usual at this point. (Scott Carter, Carter's Corner/GatorZone)

ESPN's countdown top 25 players in SEC: The Gators have had two thus far: Marcus Roberson, No. 25 and Dominique Easley, No. 15. That's probably fair, but someone's name is really "Ha Ha." Seriously? Haha. (Edward Aschoff, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Johnny Football: Seems to be in a little hot water, which is somehow trying to get to a boil with only smoke. But how stupid is this kid? He has very little common sense and/or situation awareness. It's just funny at this point.

Movie Review: We're the Millers = Hilarious.
