Videos: Jim McElwain, Will Grier address Gators' progress in fall practice

Sure seems like there's a frontrunner to be Florida's starting quarterback...

After another day of fall practice on Monday — one abbreviated by lightning, which automatically means that Florida will lose a game this fall because of a lack of preparation, I'm told by the We Needed An Indoor Practice Facility In 2009 Super PAC — Jim McElwain and a few players met with media to give status updates on fall practice.

I'll add some quotes from the interviews shortly, but the specific takeaway from the interviews as they existed is this: Since August 5, when fall camp formally began, McElwain has met with media four times, with duos of offensive and defensive players meeting with reporters on those same days. On Monday, Will Grier became the first Gator to be the sole representative of a side of the ball this fall — even Vernon Hargreaves III hasn't done such an interview.

Maybe that's an intentional tip of the hand; maybe someone else just got held up; maybe Treon Harris will get his own solo interview on the next pass. But Grier without an "and" attached to him stands out on the list of interviews from this fall.
