About Nick de la Torre

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.

    Florida has three players on the SEC teams 1 through 3. That calculates to only 3 out of the best 72 players in the conference are Gator players. I don’t buy that at all. I know Muschamp did not do the job on Offense recruiting or developing the talent he had. But I will bet you the family car Florida will have some offensive players that will surprise all of us as the season progresses. The current offensive Coaches are far superior to Muschamp’s group. They will find a way to develop some offensive player THIS YEAR. Some of these so called professional sports journalists will be eating some crow at the end of this year.

      The most accurate source for predicting the fate of the 2015 Gator football are the professional betters. These guys are not fans of one team or another. These guys are objective, detached and generally correct. They must be if they want to survive professionally. Hopefully, the future will be more positive. Time will settle that one. But this year 5-7 with losses to Georgia, FSU and 4-5 game losing streak after a win against Kentucky appears likely. By the way, before the ECD start attacking me personally with the usual vitriol be aware that this is the prediction of a major Las Vegas gaming house. But, of course, they know nothing about predicting these things.
