  • Morning reads: Jeff Driskel’s injury to play a role in QB competition

     
    Florida's changing QB situation is currently this – Jacoby Brissett is the starter and Jeff Driskel will compete for the spot, health permitting. Or at least that was the situation as of Monday morning. After starting last week at LSU, Brissett is...
  • Charlie Weis calls RB Mike Gillislee a “team guy”

     
    With two seniors ahead of him at running back, Mike Gillislee has seen limited time this season. Chris Rainey has more than double the carries of Gillislee while Jeff Demps has five more after being limited with an ankle injury. But it was Gillislee who...
  • UF plagued by undisciplined penalties
