Here’s a couple of quick thoughts on Florida’s season-opening 65-0 win against the Eastern Michigan Eagles

What it means: Florida’s offense put on a show this afternoon in The Swamp, racking up 655 total yards. Quarterback Jeff Driskel threw the ball 45 times and 10 different players recorded a reception. Kurt Roper showed that he’ll be getting a lot of players involved in the passing game. The Gators also looked very strong running the ball. With the addition of true freshman Brandon Powell, the Gators have four productive running backs. As always, Florida’s defense looked strong as well. The pieces are clearly there for Will Muschamp and his team to make a run for an SEC Championship berth in 2014.

What I liked: The depth at running back. Matt Jones, Kelvin Taylor and Brandon Powell all scored today via the run. Mack Brown also exploded at times for some big runs and Florida proved to have one of the deeper groups of running backs in the SEC this season. They gained a total of 259 yards on the ground and showcased a dominant north-and-south style running attack. Powell can really be the X-factor of this group with his speed and can impact both the running and passing game for Florida.

Who’s the man: Demarcus Robinson. The sophomore wide receiver enjoyed a breakout game after a rocky freshmen season, catching six passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. His biggest highlight came on a 70 yard pass from true freshmen Treon Harris. Robinson showed strength and athleticism, going up to get the ball and shaking off a tackler on his way to the end zone. It’s obvious that Robinson possesses skills unlike any other Florida wide receiver. As long as he can stay out of trouble, he has the potential to be the team’s biggest offensive playmaker.

Key play: Treon Harris to Demarcus Robinson for a 70-yard touchdown. This play wasn’t vital to the outcome of the game as the Gators were already up 51-0. However, the play was a welcomed sight for many Florida fans, showcasing the Gators’ willingness to throw the ball deep and go for the big play. The fact that Robinson was the benefactor of a great throw from Harris made it all the more special. Florida fans will be hoping for more big plays like this throughout the season.

What’s next: The Gators take on a Kentucky team that has been impressive in his first two games. The game will be at The Swamp, so Florida will hold a distinct home-field advantage, but the Wildcats are not the same team as in the past. They are much more athletic and have shown the ability for several big plays throughout the game. It’ll be a good test for the Gators before eventually heading to Tuscaloosa, Ala. to face Alabama on Sept. 20.
