    Talking points: Alabama brings Gators to reality with 31-6 blowout

    "All season, Florida has been saying some variation of, “We’ll we’re winning, so who cares about anything else.” And all along there have been obvious flaws in those wins. Those finally cost Florida in a 31-6 loss at No. 1 Alabama. “We have hit reality,” linebacker Brandon Hicks said...

    Carter: Gators Anxious To Get Back To Work After Humbling Defeat

    [I]TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – "Since Urban Meyer arrived at Florida in 2005 and rebuilt the football program into one of the nation’s elite, he hasn’t had many nights like Saturday here at Bryant-Denny Stadium. In fact, you can count on one hand the number of lopsided defeats the Gators have suffered...

    Nick Saban whiffed on chance to hire Urban Meyer in 1990

    "The University of Toledo hired Saban as its head coach in 1990. If the Saban-Toledo link sounds unfamiliar, that is because Saban bolted after one year to become Bill Belichick’s defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns. Anyway, Saban was trying to assemble a staff at Toledo and Meyer...

    Gators Looking for a Big Week for WR Corps

    "Florida wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni says he likes it when there isn't much attention on his group of players. He is pleased with where they are now and says they continue to improve each week but he hopes they can just keep doing their thing on the practice field without any added...

    Scot Brantley: It will be a slugfest

    "At stake is the manhood of the guys up front. Alabama thinks it can run up Florida’s gut. The Gators are going to have to prove the Tide wrong in order to beat them Saturday. It begins with the Gators going into Bryant-Denny Stadium and proving they aren’t going to be intimidated." Read...

    Gators say lack of preparedness cost them last year’s SEC championship

    "There’s no telling now if Florida would have won last year’s SEC championship if the Gators had been more prepared, less distracted. Alabama had a darn good team. But, it’s clear this week as the two teams set up for a rematch that the Gators don’t think they gave their best effort...

    Xavier Nixon OK with move from left tackle to right — really?

    "Marcus Gilbert informed the media Tuesday he is moving from right tackle to left for the rest of the season. That means, of course, Xavier Nixon has lost his job as Florida’s left tackle. Nixon, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound sophomore, has played left tackle his entire life. Everyone knows left...

    Ask Aschoff 9/29

    "We’re moving right along with recruiting this year. Florida had a pretty productive weekend, getting a lot of top prospects in for the Kentucky game. A lot of the guys on campus and in the stands were from the 2012 class, but there were a few 2011 guys making appearances. Most notably were St...

    Reidel Anthony: What UF must do to beat ‘Bama

    "This is Big Game week, and like everybody else in the Gator Nation, I’m completely psyched about seeing what’s going to happen in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Saturday night. Can Florida beat Alabama? Unless these Gators can answer that question “yes,” then it can’t happen. Personally I think...

    What happens in practice will determine how Gators play Saturday

    "It’s almost like a puzzle. Fans see the finished product in games like the one the 7th-ranked Florida Gators (4-0, 2-0 SEC East) played last Saturday night when they destroyed Kentucky, 48-14 with their best offensive game of the season. Coaches see the improvement in practice and then they put...

    Perspectives have changed for Florida's offense

    "The thought of Florida’s offense having success against the Alabama defense seemed rather preposterous even a couple of weeks ago but perspectives have changed. The floundering Florida offense had an element of polish and explosiveness to it against Kentucky, while Alabama’s defense struggled...

    Forget the defensive line for a second, Gators secondary has something to prove

    GAINESVILLE -- "For good reason, Florida's defensive line is receiving most of the attention this week as the Gators prepare for No.1 Alabama.
