    Welcome to the Gators!!! I have a very strong feeling this will be your coming out party. I am expecting several catches from you on Saturday including a key play or two. I just have this gut feeling this game will introduce you thoroughly to the Gator Nation and to College Football and everyone will know who you are when this game is over.

    With all the tweets and talk about you in practice--I expect Saturday to be your game.

    Would be nice. But it's hard for a first-year WR to learn all the other things a WR needs to know besides just catching the ball. I'm not sure DR is there yet. But I sure hope you're right. We lost a lot of big-play potential when Debose went down, it would be great to see DR fill that spot.

    I hope we don't I hope we smash run the ball down their face and get up so we don't have to use the riskier passing plays.

    I would be shocked if he has some sort of a great game. Ideally, you just want him to get his hands on a couple of passes to see what he can do after the catch.

    Would be shocked if he gets more than 2 catches or targets. run blocking seems to be more important than ability to catch footballs the past 12 years. Granted, there are a couple NCs to show for it.

    I saw him working hard at blocking last week. That's a good sign

    Pease said that we use a lot of playmakers, so not expecting DR to get a ton of passes thrown his way. Driskel looked sharp with his throws against Toledo, really only missing one throw (Dunbar in the end zone). If Miami presses then DR and others will have chances downfield, assuming we can pass protect, which was a huge problem in the last half of the 2012.

    He must have gotten the ball to somebody last week. He completed 17 of 22 passes with one egregious drop (Patton).

    We all know D Robinson will be a great one. So does Miami. He will be fighting the normal challenges of a D1 defense plus the fact Miami knows he's a super UF weapon. If they focus on him and he runs good routes without catching a ton of balls...because we will take advantage of what they ardently defend....his super value will be the combination of his blocks down field, the defenders he pulls with him, his YACs and his number of catches. He is and will be great in numerous ways.

    Will Pease call the plays to allow the OL to give JD enough time to throw Robinson the ball??
