    When so many players leave and join each season, it’s hard to build a team. We’ll see how they grind.

    You can’t coach depth.

    I’ll take right where we are going into a bye week before Georgia. All our goals are still achievable by just winning our remaining games.

    This team obviously has some critical flaws that have to be overcome with recruiting. If heart and desire could take you to the top, they would be on an express. What great effort they gave in Baton Rouge. Fourth quarter, on the road in the SEC, shows the cruel reality of your depth and talent. Injuries really caught up with the Gators on Saturday night in one of the worst possible places.

    The SEC East is still in our grasp and Georgia obviously can be beat in Jax. I’m OK with loving a gutsy team that can pull off the stunner. It’s just doing that consistently that may be a problem this season in some of the biggest games against top talent.

    At least Dooley is not a professional pot stirrer like Mike Bianchi. That’s Orlando and this is Gainesville. That’s my issue.

    I am surprised sometimes at the seen-it-all attitude and perspective. After all, these guys have great access to the coaches, players and team and yet seem to have immunity for any kind of enthusiasm. With retirement months away, does it really matter? I don’t want a cheerleader writing the articles. Just a bit more of a Gator fan so I can relate to the perspective.

    I don’t get it. If it’s enthusiasm for the Gators that brings everyone to this site, why would you go negative? This is Gator sports, not the national or state news. Look how biased new sites are today. In that light, why isn’t this site more biased for the Gators?

    Doesn’t get much better than this StLGator, does it? As long as we stay undefeated everything is possible.

    An early loss in this caliber of game will not hurt the vanquished team as much as one late in the season. A win really turns up the buzz around that SEC program.

    There’s nothing like an undefeated season where every game builds the anticipation and stakes going forward. We’ve won in Baton Rouge with less talented teams and have loss with more capable ones. I like the attitude and focus of this year’s team.

    Gators 21-17. Gators will be ready but Vols play better than expected by most odds makers.

    The execution of the Gator offense was at a high level in the fourth quarter. UT has a better idea of what to expect from a Trask-led team.

    I agree on Jones as the change-up. He also needs the PT. Trask obviously doesn’t.

    This became my “go to” Gator news and forum site when Spurrier coached at UF. I’ve always gone out of my way to support Sun advertisers when visiting Gainesville and attending UF events.

    I’m sure it wasn’t a local decision, like five years ago when corporate all but abandoned the forums. They had a huge following on here before that “tweak” to the site. They still don’t seem to get it, so many years and other competing Gator news and forum sites later.

    That left local reporters and Gator news at no charge. I think the reporters are worth it – but not on my budget when the news is available from so many other sources – without a subscription fee.

    Agreed that someone else should drive if they can’t get the Gator offensive machine to perform to its full potential.

    Not unusual to see this site do dumb things to the run the loyal away.

    That was a major slugfest with hitting hard enough for a late season rivalry game. I’m quite happy to come out of Orlando with the win. Defense played to my high level of expectation.

    One thing I did see that was encouraging for our offense was the play of the line throughout the game. Overall, the 4th quarter play of the entire offense was very good for execution and timing. If we pick up there next week we will be fine.

    Miami has a good team, especially the defense, and will wreak havoc in the ACC this season.

    Toney is a threat to score with every touch. He’s even more effective as a change up, when everybody else is getting touches and yards.

    I believe Coach Mullen when he expresses optimism about the offense and especially the starting line. We all know how key that is to a great year for the Gators.

    My hope is that UF crushes Miami in this game and any enthusiasm for revitalizing this series.

    We are just getting back into South Florida and drawing some of the region’s best recruits. Why legitimize the UM program by letting them play us and SEC competition?

    That’s a less about for me with Franks. He’s one of the proven assets coming into the huddle. In year two we look for more consistency and better execution from Franks and the offense. Nothing fancy, especially early in the season, but they’ll deliver.

    I’d like to know more about Miami and what we can expect. There was a good article in the Herald last week that I should have linked.

    Talk about a highly anticipated season!

    Some of this is new territory for the Gators with Coach White still sorting out the players, leaders and forging a team.

    The Florida-Kentucky rivalry will be especially interesting with the Gators taking a player personnel approach that is very familiar to the Wildcats. The Cats usually have starting talent falling off the bench. They get to the tourney- but are beat by a better team.

    I think we can do better because of the position/player personalities and dynamics at UF this season.
