    We definitely have loaded up on DL, so we're getting ready. :)

    I hope to see some common sense in our offense. It has been missing in years. Predictable playcalling will make OL look much worse than they are.

    I hope to also see faster developing plays. Our pass and run plays develop so slowly. This was the case under Meyer as well.

    ArtDeco great comment, do we have a thinker who can turn the lites on our QB, Grier is ready to start if SOS was the HC.

    Well at least we know they are getting worked hard.

    @pat_dooley: I peeked in at Gator offseason workouts on practice field. They are brutal. One guy was crying.

    These sessions are hard... very hard... immensely hard.
    But six and a half months from now, when they are on a hot Florida Field... they will know that six and a half months earlier, that they have paid the greatest price to even be there.
    And, in most cases, they have paid a higer price that the player across the line from them.


    And those who are potheads have a harder time working that hard and... keeping their food down.
    Don't ask me how I know....

    I just hope our offensive line moves forward...literally. It will be a step forward from recent years.

    No, he isn't. Gators are off the charts with this Grier stuff. Love the kid, but my goodness -- think about the competition he played against and just look at him. Looks to me like he physically needs at least one year to develop. I hope I'm wrong and he is the phenom we all want him to be right now. But that's not likely.

    I'm not sure QBs need the same level of physical development as most players. I think if he's mentally ready to play he should be able to play - he has the physical talent.

    But you're point on level of competition is a big one. Not too many true frosh QBs ready to play at this level and I suspect most that are come from big time programs where they played against elite HS competition.

    Grier appeared to show nice poise and adjust well to speed of the game at UA (as much as you can tell from that ridiculous rotation they ran) so that's a good sign, but it's light years difference from small school North Carolina to the SEC. It's going to take some time for him to see the game well at this speed and get comfortable with it. Plus learning the offense and adjusting to college life.

    I'm hoping they simply learn to block consistently

    We have literally a ton of new OLs (between freshmen and redshirt freshmen), 3 athletic QBs, 3 RBs well over 200#, some young receivers who can hopefully get separation and a new thinking OC. Can't wait to wind them up and see if we can get rid of the taste of '13.
