Florida Gators Football 2014 News and Updates
2/4/14 - With National Signing Day coming up, the Florida Gators have their hopes set high on three five-star recruits and a four-star QB Treon Harris. After finishing 4-8 (3-5 SEC), the Gators failed to become bowl eligible for the first time in 13 years and realized a losing record for the first time since the 70s. The Gators will lose underclassmen DT Dominic Easley, CB Loucheix Purifoy, CB Marcus Roberson and LB Ronald Powell to the NFL Draft, as well as seniors, Caleb Sturgis (No.1 kicker), Lerentee McCray, (No.7 DT) Sharrif Floyd, (No.2 safety) Matt Elam, (No.4 TE) and more. Florida finished 8th nationally in defense, so it will primarily be their offense they’re trying to rebuild this offseason. Keep up with the Gators and see which prospects they land after National Signing Day!
11/1/13 – Unfortunately for Florida, the Gators saw their starting QB Jeff Driskel go down with a season-ending injury in their third game of year. The usually dominant Gator football program, has fallen to both ranked opponents on their schedule thus far, most recently #14 Missouri. The offensive line that was supposed to be restored this season, gave up 10 sacks in Florida’s last two games; now 17 on the year, the Gators are tied for fifteenth most in the country. On the upside, RB Kevin Taylor has emerged as one of the best playmakers among the struggling offense. Carrying the ball 22 times for 126 yards combined in the last two games, Taylor has proved he can be relied on and should be given more touches moving forward. In one of the greatest college football rivalry games, Florida welcomes the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday to EverBank Field where Florida vs. Georgia tickets start at $75. A win against the Bulldogs (also 3-2 in Conference) would put the Gators right back in the mix of things.
