Florida Gators spring game open thread: Jim McElwain's 2015 season starts now

Here's how to watch the Orange and Blue Debut.

Florida's 2015 spring game, known as the Orange and Blue Debut, kicks off at 12:30 p.m. from the friendly confines of The Swamp on this alternately sunny and shady Saturday in Gainesville, and it should be a good one — relatively speaking.

Florida's 2013 spring game didn't really even happen, with Will Muschamp electing to put on a glorified scrimmage due to insufficiencies on the offensive line, and the 2014 spring game, despite a) being an actual game and b) showcasing some significant progress on offense under Kurt Roper, still ended in a tie.

The 2015 Orange and Blue Debut will, in fact, be an actual game, which is nice, and the chances of another tie are quite slim, especially given the untimed overtime period set to follow four 12-minute quarters of play with a running clock.

You can catch the Orange and Blue Debut on TV at an SEC Network alternate channel, if available, but you likely have a better shot of seeing it via online streaming of SEC Network+ through WatchESPN — just remember that you'll need a cable or satellite provider login to do so.

I'm going to be in The Swamp for this one, and I'll have tweets at @AlligatorArmy, and a recap shortly afterward. Feel free to leave as many observations (or questions for me?) in the comments as you'd like; I'll try to take into account what you want to know when I write the recap.
