Editor's note: We're breaking down the Gators' two-deep depth chart every day for the next two weeks. We'll cover every position as well as offer a glimpse into the future. You can read the whole series here.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- For a team that was desperate for playmakers on offense last season, the Florida Gators have growing hopes for 2014. Enthusiasm has been building since spring football ended, and it's not just because starting quarterback Jeff Driskel is healthy or the young receivers and running backs have another year of experience and maturity.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Fresh faces were everywhere at Florida this spring. A poor season in 2013 brought a clean slate. A new offense brought opportunities at every position. A large group of redshirt freshmen and true freshmen brought a much-needed infusion of talent.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Progress. It's what Florida fans expect to see this fall. It's what they hope to see in Saturday's spring game. Everyone is under much more scrutiny after the Gators' 4-8 record last season, but mostly the microscope will be on a brand-new offense that has been installed in just 14 spring practices.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Thanks to a new offense, the Florida Gators are expecting some serious improvement this fall. Every player has hopes and dreams of better statistics. The most realistic chances to double or even triple their production?
Schedule: The Gators' first spring practice is Wednesday. It's open to the public and free, along with seven other practice sessions. Spring football concludes Saturday, April 12 with the annual Orange & Blue Debut, which starts at 1:30 p.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Four catches. It doesn't get much worse than the nearly complete absence of production from Florida's tight ends last season. Four catches is practically invisible, although some of the blame can be shared with a passing offense that ranked No.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Signing day is one of those rare times in which every college coach celebrates a win. And for a Florida program that suffered through seven straight losses to finish a miserable 2013 season, a win is somehow more than a win.
