Your Daily Gator don’t stop believin’.

Brad Crawford, who writes for the Florida Sports247 site, takes a preseason ninth-place ranking for the Gators and runs with it.

9. Florida Gators

NCAA.com: “Yes, the Gators have to solve rival Georgia. But Florida has gone 10-3 and 11-2 in Dan Mullen’s first two seasons, including a pair of New Year’s Six wins.”

247Sports take: We’re on the Florida bandwagon too, picking the Gators as our surprise final four team next season largely due to Kyle Trask’s return as one of the SEC’s top-level signal callers. For the first time in years, the Gators don’t have to worry about protection being an issue with a front that should be able to dominate at the point of attack. Mullen has the program moving in a noteworthy direction and the next huge leap comes in 2020.

If Trask doesn’t win the Heisman, it’ll likely be because Florida’s offensive line does as a group.

    I really don’t get all the Gator hype. They lost a ton of talent on defense and never had any rushing attack last year. They’ve recruited better but not at the Bama, LSU, and UGA level. I think there are a lot of questions and holes they need to deal with. The schedule is easier but they have some tough games to deal with. FTMF!

  2. Kyle Trask couldn’t even beat out Franks. Either Dopey/Sideshow/PortalMaster Dan isn’t as good at evaluating talent as everyone thinks he is, or Trask isn’t a QB that was good enough in practice to show his coach he was a better option than a pure turnover machine.

    Either way, FU doesn’t scare me in the least … and Towel Boy is still on the FU coaching staff.

    Many of you are not old enough to remember him, but to me Trask is Dusty Bonner 2020. Excellent at short passes but isn’t a stretch the field guy.

    Mullen cleverly left the Handbags room to improve their rushing attack against UGA next year. 19 carries for 21 yards isn’t exactly encouraging, espe ially when one considers the UGA defense might even be better than last year’s smothering edition.

    It’s the same thing as last year. Every Handbag replacement, adjustment, or returning player will be a homerun, and every UGA counterpart will be a disaster. Maybe we should call him Coach Gus Mullen, except Gus 1.0 has actually won a couple of division titles, an SEC title, and a game against Kirby Smart.

    Given our questions on offense, it wouldn’t be going out on a limb to pick FU to knock off UGA, or to win the East this year, but win the SEC and make a Final 4? That has to take a huge helping of Gaytorade. But after reading the delusional group on their 247 site, it may be a requirement to get a job there, doesn’t seem they are much for reality or objective discussion.

      Kirby will “NOT” let the lizards win the cocktail party. The offense may have some early kinks to work out, but they will be humming by the time the cocktail party hits. Zeus will be loose this year. I’ve just got a gut feeling about that, and Pickens & Co. will be a high flying circus act by then.

    Hey Rev Dawg, you’re good people. If it seems I have hate in my posts for the slimy mud lizards it’s from the hate in my heart. Here’s one for your count and I just ain’t feeling the acronym today.
    Fuck those motherfuckers!
