Hammond, Hines see the field

Early in the season, it looked like Florida's three promising redshirt freshmen receivers (Frankie Hammond Jr., Omarius Hines and T.J. Lawrence) were going to have a chance to contribute this season and give the Gators some much-needed depth at...

Ask Aschoff 11/4

High school seasons all across the country are winding down, which means recruiting will begin to pick up again. Early enrollees will have to start making up their minds and official visits will be heating up. Rivalry games. Early...

Gators got first-hand look at Orson Charles

Oh, what could have been. As I watched from the Jacksonville Municipal press box Saturday, I couldn't help but be impressed with one guy in red and black. Most Gator fans have to have been thinking the same thing when...

More Tebow under center coming?

Two games in a row now, the Gators have had success in the red zone with quarterback Tim Tebow lining up under center. The Gators scored a touchdown from the formation against Mississippi State two weeks ago, with Chris...

Big bag o’ recruiting candy

Recruiting guru Edward Aschoff hands out a big handful of candy for your Halloween gorging pleasure.

Georgia prediction time

I've been going over this all week, and I've come up with two very plausible scenarios for how this game will play out Saturday in Jacksonville. Here's the first one: Florida's red-zone woes continue, the Gators turn the ball over a...

Dunlap starting to turn it on

Before the start of the season, junior defensive end Carlos Dunlap was talking big about the things he planned to do this season. He wanted to set the UF season sack record. He wanted to be a dominant player...

Ask Aschoff 10/28

Wow, I guess my Wii Tennis skills got more people interested in the mailbag this week! So many questions, so little space. Keep them coming guys. I'd also like to take the time to give props to "Jack," who...

Solomon Patton has a good feeling about Dunkley

Mobile, Ala., Murphy receiver, and Florida commit, Solomon Patton hasn’t interacted with many uncommitted recruits this season, but he’s developed a good relationship with Pahokee receiver Chris Dunkley. The two have communicated a few times this season and each...

Gators seem loose, relaxed

Florida may appear to be playing and coaching tight these days, but Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer were relaxed and smiling through their Monday press conferences.

Gators early leader for Union County junior

He's only a junior, but Union County's Lonnie Gosha could be one of the top defenders in the state of Florida next year.

Why not recruit the Magnolia State?

Just call Mississippi "no man's land" for Florida. The Gators haven't signed anyone out of the state since the Ron Zook era — and those guys played at community colleges. What's so wrong with my home state? Is the talent...

Ask Aschoff 10/22

I usually begin each edition of "Ask Aschoff" with a shout out to my readers and the great questions you ask (almost) every week. Things will be different this week. I figured I'd give myself a pat on the back....

Mississippi State prediction time

Scott Field isn't on anyone's top 10 list of toughest places to play in college football, but it's been a nightmare venue for the Gators, who haven't won there since 1985. They're 0-4 since then.

Where are the playmakers on defense?

Much is being made about Florida's lack of playmakers on offense. But what about that UF defense? Those guys aren't making a lot of plays, either. A year ago, during Florida's amazing run to the national championship, the defense's...

The latest recruiting rankings

The new Rivals.com team recruiting rankings came out Monday and yet again Florida fell in the rankings. After having one of the top classes in the country a few months ago, Florida fell to No. 5 and is now...

They are what they are

At about the same time last season, a loss to Ole Miss seemed to unite the Gators and send them speeding off in the right direction after some early-season struggles. Will a near-loss to Arkansas on Saturday have a...

WR commit happy with UF offense

Fans might be stressing over Florida's conservative offense, but wide receiver commit Solomon Patton said he's fine with what he's seen so far. And he's a receiver for crying out loud. "I still like the stuff they’re doing now," Patton...

Ask Aschoff 10/15

I wanted to get a good amount of questions for the mailbag so I took a few from last week and this week. Not much else to say, so on to the questions! Is there any indication which of the...

Arkansas prediction time

I've been hearing the comparisons all week between this season's Arkansas game and last season's Ole Miss game, that staggering upset in The Swamp. Certainly, there are similarities. Arkansas is from the Western Division and is led by a...
