Dante Fowler Jr. hopes to feast: On opposing quarterbacks that is. He's leaner and meaner and ready to go. He's also gone a hockey season without having McDonald's. (Jesse Simonton, Miami Herald)
Gators more disciplined under Will Muschamp: When compared to Urban Meyer, yes, but the pace is the same. But I somewhat agree with the author in that Muschamp wins because of a technicality. (Jonathan Czupryn, The Independent Florida Alligator)
Position battles still on: Some of these are more important (right guard, kicker, punter, safety) than others (running back, corner back) because of depth and a committee approach, but it just goes to show you that opening day depth charts aren't the end all be all. (Nick de la Torre, GatorCountry)
Sophomores ready to lead: I guess it's time (maybe a year early, but circumstances are different this time) to see whether or not the consensus No. 2-ranked recruiting class was worth the hype. (Edward Aschoff, SEC Blog/ESPN)
Adapt or die: Again, it's all about whether or not they Gators can finish the year healthy. (Christopher Scammell, GatorCountry)
Another bowl prediction: Yet another one with the Gators in the Taxslayer Gator Bowl. (Garry Smits, The Florida Times-Union)
Michael Taylor ready to go: And win some games. (Morgan Moriarty, The Independent Florida Alligator)
A short injury list: And that is so exciting! (Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun)
Billy Donovan concerned about unknowns: Specifically an unknown level of consistency within the remaining team. (Kevin Brockway, Hoops Scoop/GatorSports)
Like 36 hours until SEC football begins! About time.
My top five Gators season openers since 1994: Why 1994? Because I was 10 years old and remember everything since... mostly.
- 1) 2008: Gators 56, Hawaii 10.
- 2) 1996: Gators 55, Southwestern Louisiana 21.
- 3) 2003: Gators 65, UAB 3.
- 4) 2001: Gators 49, Marshall 14.
- 5) 1994: Gators 70, New Mexico State 21
Bonus points for the second game of the 1997 season in which Central Michigan strolled into The Swamp and left defeated 82-6. We need to just annihilate people again.
