More chances to come for Florida's Thompson

Nobody was more down on Deonte Thompson for his dropped touchdown pass last week than Thompson himself. He makes that catch in his sleep, a deep pattern where he uses his speed to race past the defender.

Thompson will get a few more chances Saturday against Troy, and nobody has lost confidence in him. He remains the Gators' best option down the field. Florida coach Urban Meyer has reinforced that to him, and he's also reminded him how important it is that the Gators get big plays from their "X" receiver if this offense is going to take off and match its productivity from a year ago.
