Kelvin Taylor takes out frustrations over playing time on Twitter
Florida Gators running back Kelvin Taylor is not happy about the lack of playing time he got in Florida’s 30-27 loss and he took to Twitter to let everyone know.
Taylor, who got the starting carries at the beginning of the game, finished the night with just two carries for zero yards. The sophomore running back was expected to get a much larger portion of the carries tonight with Matt Jones banged up by a knee injury.
Perhaps the most questionable instance where Taylor wasn’t on the field was on the Gators’ final scoring drive. Florida had four chances from the three-yard line to punch it in for a touchdown, but opted to hand the ball off to true freshman Brandon Powell, a faster back at 5-foot-9, 177-pounds.
Under those circumstances, it’s Taylor’s frustrations are understandable, but it’ll be interesting to see how the carries are dispersed next week against a weak Missouri run defense.
