    • I think it is time to give Malik Zaire a try. Franks isn’t ready for prime time this year and we need to stop the bleeding. We had 6 seconds left before the half within Piniero’s field goal range but he takes his time lobbing a throw downfield to run out the clock instead of zipping it to the sidelines to get a quick few more yards closer. He has little situational awareness.

      Give him another year of development before he is ready. McElwain shouldn’t have listened to the uneducated fans who wanted to see that talented arm before it’s ready.

    • We lost to LSU by 1 and TAMU by 2 in a 1 possession games. We could just as easily been 5-0 in the SEC. Your logic cuts both ways.

    • Why Florida has it’s worst record after 6 games since 2003:
      Will Grier WVU
      32-41, 352 C, 5 TD
      Feleipe Franks UF
      17/26 129 YDS 2 INT

    • Felipe Franks is too raw to develop quickly enough to play QB for any Power 5 team except maybe Rutgers or Kansas. Not only does he not go through his progressions, he has no pocket awareness. I believe it was still the third quarter when he saw the pass rush starting to break through the O-line. He was deep in the pocket and had enough time to throw the ball away, located a check off, or even hit an open receiver down the field. (if there was any?) Instead he runs forward directly into the defense hoping he can break through for a decent gain, but of course he has no where to go. Sorry but that means that the QB has a low football IQ. Like I have written before he needs to transfer to an FCS school and see what he can do against lower level defenses. We can criticize the coaching staff all we want but the real problem is that such an undeveloped QB was recruited by Mac in the first place. Let this be lesson to all those college football recruiters in Power 5 conferences and even in the American Conference. Bad decisions on who to recruit and who to play at QB has haunted this team since Tim Tebow finished his senior season.

    Who: Texas A&M (4-2, 2-1 SEC) vs. Florida (3-2, 3-1)

    When: 7 p.m.

    TV: […]

    • ”…they’re probably going to have 900 yards of offense.” -Coach Mac.
      ”Florida’s defense appeared stuck on the field for long stretches in last Saturday’s 17-16 loss…” -Gatorsports.com
      And considering Texas A&M is averaging around 72 plays per game, while Floirda’s offense is only averaging around 50+ plays per game, well, something’s gotta’ give. I’m hearing Han Solo’s famous line in the movie, Star Wars. ”Never tell me the odds!” Because the odds are totally against this depleted Gator team.
      So, ”Come on, Gators, get up and go!”

    • These are ridiculous. Why can’t we have any traditions any more? First, they got rid of the traditional block F and replaced it with the silly looking slant heavy metal font F. We no longer have any traditional uniform look. We are trying to out-Oregon Oregon. I don’t think even Oregon would wear something this stupid. Sure makes me want to not make the long drive to the game. The likely beating by tamu is one thing, but to have to look at these is another. And, next year they are raising prices and the home schedule is terrible. I see a lot of empty seats in the future.

    • Yikes that is some ugly uni’s.

    • I LOVE THE ”AWAY” BLUE PANTS AND WHITE TOPS! All-time best looking Gator uniforms ever, in my opinion. Great recommendation, F.Gator. Especially your, ”A little orange goes a long way.”

  • The Gators’ third-year coach is scheduled for his weekly news conference at 11:45 a.m.

    • ”Considering the Gators have had to rally from a deficit in all four SEC games this season…” ~Gatorsports.com.
      That says it all with regards to this ’17 Gator offense, and its coaching. Florida should be able to take an early lead in at least one S.E.C. game, and keep it. But they haven’t, yet . Maybe we (Florida Football fans) should accept that we’re just going to be a mediocre football program in a powerful conference (S.E.C.). But I’ve read that Coach Mac can make a mean P.B.J. and B.B.Q. sauce!

    • U.F. coulda’ folded-up their arms, felt sorry for themselves when Del Rio got hurt, (like some of the negative Gator fans), and let the ‘Dores get back into game. It was close, but they didn’t do that and I’m proud of this Florida Gator Football team! Some Gator fans won’t ever ”enjoy the journey”, and that’s TRULY DISAPPOINTING for the players that bust their butts for 6 days a week, and for 4 years as players that are only here for 4 years.
      ”3rd and long” for the Gator ‘D’ does need work, as it’s been troublesome for the 1st 4 games. But I’ll give credit when it’s due… U.F. is 3-1! CHOMP UP THE L.S. who TIGERS! GO GATORS!
