    "Dillman said all of the injured have taken to the task of getting back as relentlessly as they played.

    “They’re competitors,” he said. “They compete every day. They have a passion. They love it. There’s just that driving force to get back out there and play. They’re like that. They’ve got that mentality of nothing’s going to get in the way and to get back faster and stronger than they were before.”

    Most everybody is healthy BEFORE spring and summer practices....after the summer practice is where injuries or lack there of, are what matters most

    Yes - thanks for posting !

    I for one am extremely optimistic that we will be a force to be reckoned with this season.

    Just yesterday I changed out my Gator flag out front to a brand new shiny version. It's the off season to some but for me the season runs 24/7 365 days a year.

    It's GREAT TO BE A FLORIDA GATOR!!!!!!!

    I wish them all the best as they recover.

    Still, you've got to admit that article was 3 pages of pure, devoid-of-tangible-information-but-feels-good, offseason fluff.

    I have a really good feeling about the upcoming season. We have a ton of players coming off injury, but we also have some fabulous talent emerging from redshirt seasons….in addition to the outstanding recruits we just brought in. These guys have the talent to make UF a top 10 team in 2014. Watch out….these guys will make us smile!

    Driskel sounds like a tough kid. Hope this year he realizes his potential and stays healthy. If that happens, then the offense will have been put back on track, because the kid has some great talent.

    We're undefeated and everyone's back healthy, running 4.3s. In full pads. Uphill. Into the wind. :D

    I kid, but I think LTG61 called it on this story... it's a feel good article that we shouldn't read too much into.

    Well, I saw more on the three wise men than actual information of our wounded. Many more wounded than Jeff.

    It really was sunshine pumping at its best. Nonetheless, it was a good read about how the three wise men work together.
