Corral was running for his life!
I believe our biggest problem last year was not getting enough push/rush from the the front 4 or 5 linemen. The linebackers were constantly fighting off blockers that should have been dealing with the D line. The D line will be better this year. The linebackers will have more time and freedom to sniff out the short passes and runs. Also, the secondary will be improved at all positions. I'm glad Wilson declared. He always seemed to have a a very high opinion of himself w/o the play backing it up. Grantham needs to go. Mullen needs to step up and hire a real winner, like Spurrier and Urban always seemed to do. That said, these defensive players may play well in-spite of their coach's ineptness and save his bacon for more seasons to come.
I like Mike White. He's from a very influential sports leadership family and I liked his personality. That said, I don't believe he should be allowed to return for next season. I give him a pass for his first 2-3 years while he populated his squad with his players. For the past 3 seasons his floor/game decisions have consistently been questionable. Case in point, the decision to slow down the offensive tempo in the 2nd half yesterday. This was the year the Gators were going to sprint from one end of the court to the other. In previous 2 seasons, his season long offenses looked just like yesterday's. Though he has taken us to the NCAA 5? times we have yet to make it out of the first weekend. I'm ready for a change.
The cancel culture people are the under belly of our society. They stand for nothing except what they perceive is an affront to their sensibilities. I move that we strip all human being names from all streets, venues and monuments. God knows for sure that there has never been a person who lived a life perfect enough to deserve to be memorialized. That includes MLK, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, any of Christ's disciples, doctors, famous scientists, etc.
Football targeting, an act that has caused many serious injuries to the player being targeted, receives a 2 half suspension and 15 yard penalty to the offending player's team. Payne received a flagrant foul call, ejection from the game and he sat out the March Madness Va. Tech game. There has been no mention that he will be playing in the game against Oral Roberts. Sankey watched the game, saw what happened and reasoned that Florida took the necessary steps to punish Payne.
Sankey must have seen enough of Fulkerson's "physical play" (substituting the word 'dirty' would be acceptable) to justify not taking any further measures. To me it says, Fulky deserved what he got.
Fulkerson plays dirty and Omar, who has never done anything even remotely aggressive like that, had had enough. He was holding Payne, as usual, when it happened. Fully plays like and reminds me of Bill Laimbeer. Bill Laimbeer was a jackass.

Calipari waving at Howland instead of shaking his hand after the game was such a classy move.
It seems that if he has any coaching value there will be, at least, a consultant opportunity at UoA. In two years, Saban's ability to retool coaching careers will make Miles look as good as new.
Spoken like the x-NFL, All-Pro, future Hall of Fame QB you are. Most of Jone's passes were thrown behind what was (or could be considered) the second string O-line and to second/third string receivers, during mop-up time. His accuracy stat will improve this season if for no other reason than the defenses will have to honor his run threat which will give his receivers the extra step(s) needed to get open. Never agree with a Georgia Troll son it takes their mind off of their inferiorities and helps them temporarily forget the nightmares they have about us. They think they know what's happening in Gainesville. Fact is, they never do.
Gawd all mighty! Everyone has to start for the first time once! Emory Jones has already had more game time experience that 99% of first time starters. Couple that with his football pedigree, his QB mentor and the offensive weapons around him he will undoubtedly be successful. The only question is HOW successful.
The only reason Corral and Daniels have/will run is when/if their pass blocking fails. Emory will run by design.
I like Richardson too but Emory has spring and fall pre-season practices to get even more comfortable with the system and his receivers. He will make any defense crazy with his running speed, elusiveness and the natural broken field play-making skills he brings (who does that remind you of?). Tebow wasn't a great passer but because he could make the coverage stop and watch during play action his receivers got the extra step(s) of separation they needed to adjust to the off target passes he threw. That's what I expect will happen with Emory. Contrary to what the naysayers predict, Florida has a lot of quality passing targets (TEs, WRs and RBs out of the backfield) who will make life Hell for any opponent's LBs and secondary. We have too many offensive positives to be concerned about that side of the team. With a little defensive improvement I predict another 44-28ish result in Jax this year.
Gilbert has all the markings of a problem child in progress. Too much drama potential. Our TE room is more then well stocked w/o Arik. No worries.

He will not be missed. Our TE room has more than enough talent.
I heard it was his metal 3 wood she used to break the back window and pound on the car with.
I will not speculate about what caused the accident. What a mess. I guess it's good that it was his right leg. That's the one that is used for more stabilization and less twisting and weight transfer during the swing. Competitively, it's not good. That said, at 36 years old, Ben Hogan experienced severe leg damage after his car accident in 1948. He went on to win 2-Masters, 3-US Opens and a British Open with both legs wrapped in bandages and in constant pain. I hope Tiger has the desire to rehab and can win some more majors. Wouldn't that be a kick?
