Redshirt freshman Ventrell Miller, one of nine players suspended last season for credit card fraud, is starting to have an impact at linebacker.

He’s had several big hits in the two scrimmages and came up with an interception in Saturday’s.

“Ventrell had a nice interception, a really nice play on an interception,” UF coach Dan Mullen said Monday. “Made some good plays, made some other mistakes.

“I try to keep in consideration he’s a guy that didn’t play last year as a young guy, sat out a year. He’s still getting used to being back in football.”


  1. It’s going to be interesting to see how much “talent” this team really has. Players have been so under-developed for years but with a new coaching staff and program, maybe we’ll start to see guys reach their full potential. We don’t have Bama’s roster yet, but I’m thinking its going to be a whole lot more fun this fall to watch than it has been.

  2. Can’t be much worse, Rog. I actually find myself wincing, almost as though I were in pain, when watching at times last season(and for several seasons before, though last was the worst). Almost anything would be better.
