Happy Tuesday, Gators fans.
Since the big win over Ole Miss, I thought about one quote in particular from Will Muschamp’s final press conference — shortly after he was fired. He said, “Don’t let that new guy tell you he ain’t got no good players.” He was right.
Florida’s got good players, and those guys are finally executing at a high level — something that didn’t happen with Jim McElwain’s predecessor. That effort doesn’t look like it’s going to stop soon and coach McElwain is saying all of the right things.
Here are five things every Gator fan must know today:
- McElwain doesn’t think Florida is going to be a one-hit wonder. He’s confident that his Gators will continue playing well. Just look at some of those quotes.
- Florida is now a championship contender under McElwain. Should Florida fans be thinking about a potential championship this season? It’s not out of the realm of possibility.
- The Florida-LSU game time announced. Don’t look too far ahead, but this one should be a fun one.
- Florida’s offensive line has made tremendous progress. This was supposed to be a glaring weakness for the Gators, but the unit has played well thus far.
- A 3-star running back de-commited from Florida. He had been committed to UF since March.
