Welcome to Chomp Chat, SEC Country’s daily Florida podcast with reporter Zach Abolverdi and Gators broadcaster Jeff Cardozo.
The Florida football team will face multiple tests in the fall under first-year coach Dan Mullen and his staff.
Vegas projects the Gators to win eight games this season, which would double their victory total from last season. They will likely be underdogs against rivals Florida State and Georgia, while their matchups against LSU, Mississippi State and other SEC opponents could go either way.
In the latest edition of Chomp Chat, we discuss the 2018 projections for Florida and give our take on the three toughest tests for Mullen in Year 1.
Here are the topics on the show Wednesday:
- It goes without saying that FSU and UGA fall into this category, but which game will be harder for the Gators to win? They face the Seminoles on the road, but a neutral-site matchup against the Bulldogs will be no cakewalk.
- Mississippi State or South Carolina? We debate whether the Bulldogs or Gamecocks deserve the No. 3 spot as Florida’s toughest test on the 2018 schedule.
- The Gators signed softball coach Tim Walton to a 10-year contract extension on Wednesday. Walton has won seven SEC Championships and two NCAA titles at Florida.
