Change of possession

It’s too soon to know if Florida has improved itself in the change of head coaches, but judging from Jim McElwain’s comments on the first day of practice, it’s certainly mellowed.

But the 6-foot-2 Grier, a decorated high school quarterback from Davidson, North Carolina, took the first snap of the spring Monday. Although many outsiders viewed it as an indication that Grier has an edge over the 5-foot-11 Harris, McElwain acted as if he didn’t even know Grier would get the first snap.

”I didn’t know, did he?” McElwain said. ”Did he take the first snap? ”I didn’t (see that). I didn’t. Somebody had to I guess, so he must have ran in there first. Good for him, nice job.”

Regardless, the spring will give McElwain a chance to evaluate his players, devise an offense and have at least a better idea of what to expect in the fall.

”There’s some base principles you’re going to get in no matter what,” he said. ”I think the big part for us is just the discovery of what guys do best, what guys need to work on and hopefully then in turn not put them in situations to not be successful. It’s kind of like `In Search Of’ with Leonard Nimoy. You know the old show Leonard Nimoy used to have? `In Search Of.’ That’s what we are this spring.”

You think Boom even knows who Leonard Nimoy was?

    Do we have any reason yet to hate this guy? Other than he is at UF?

    Agreed, of course. He seems like a good guy so far. My question was a little tongue in cheek… He is no Corch or Boom, that’s for sure.

    I like him also. I have no desire to hate him. It’s like the Office of President of the United States. You should respect the office even if you don’t like the person occupying it. It follows that you should hate UF even if you like the person leading them.

    No, I don’t think Muschamp knows who Leonard Nimoy was…

      Lol!! I was gonna say he probably does know who Nimoy is but after that I’m leaning more towards not a snow ball’s chance in hell.

    I wonder if Paul Johnson knows who Leonard Nimoy is…
