The Florida Gators spring “practices” have come to a close for the 2015 season. Now all that’s left to take care of is the small matter of the spring game, affectionately known as the Orange and Blue Debut.

There only one little problem.

Jim McElwain and his staff have a serious shortage on the offensive line.

With a medley of guys hurt, and declaring early for the NFL Draft, and just simply a lack of depth, there’s a layer of difficulty surrounding not only the offensive progression but the ability to host a full fledge spring game as well.

In an effort to remedy that while still giving fans something worth coming to see, McElwain says that the team will most likely run with four 12 minute drills and a running clock. He does note though that this information is subject to change and he and his staff continue to find the most appropriate way to handle Saturdays scrimmage.

GatorCountry previews the first spring game in Jim McElwains tenure at Florida and give fans a fast of what they can expect.

We also tackle the actual tackling that’s taking place among the offensive and defensive line drills.

You can watch the video below for a full analysis on the subjects. We will have a final spring ball wrap up following the Orange and Blue game.

That game kicks off at 12:30 pm and can be viewed live on SEC Network+ and WatchESPN.

You can see replays of the spring game on SEC Network. Check your local listings for times.
