GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Injuries hit hard and hit often last season, and as the Gators prepare to open spring practice next week, they'll still be feeling some lingering effects. Florida coach Will Muschamp on Tuesday announced the Gators will open spring practice March 19 with nine players out of action because of injury, including three starters.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It's no secret the Gators are planning something big for 2014, something like turning a 4-8 team into a contender for the SEC East. To do that Florida needs several players to step forward.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Will Muschamp didn't sign tight end Colin Thompson to lead the team in receptions. He wanted him to be a physical blocker to help open holes for the running game and contribute in the passing game -- not catch 45 passes like Jordan Reed did last season.
