Florida’s offense is still a work in progress: The Gators’ offense is still looking for ways to up its production. Florida has only scored 20 points in their last six quarters of play. Some of Florida’s issues on offense have to do with the situation at quarterback, and with the Gators’ running back committee approach. On Saturday, Florida’s four running backs barely cracked 100 yards collectively (107 yards). The passing game put up 144 yards with 19 completions.

Gators need to play more physical: Florida was pushed around on both lines of scrimmage against Vanderbilt. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun)

One player was positively singled out by Jim McElwain: That was CeCe Jefferson, or as McElwain calls him, “Carl.” (Zach Abolverdi, SEC Country)

Luke Del Rio’s status for LSU depends on practice: Jim McElwain said that Del Rio could have played in an emergency situation at Vanderbilt, but that he had not done much at practice last week. He noted that whether Del Rio plays this week will depend on how much he is able to practice. (Ryan Young, SEC Country)

Young defensive players pushed into action against Vanderbilt: With injuries to starters on the defensive line, three underclassmen made their first starts, and several more saw increased playing time. (Jordan McPherson, Miami Herald; Ethan Bauer, Independent Florida Alligator)
