    ..a real team player and a guy who has kept his head down and worked hard:

    **************
    Leading the way, however, was running back Mack Brown. Not a new face, but maybe an anonymous one. Brown has toiled in orange and for more than three years, amassing just 40 career carries, despite once having four-star recruiting status. Still, Muschamp said he wasn't at all surprised at Brown's performance.

    The redshirt junior was Florida's workhorse on Saturday, rushing for 25 times for 112 mostly tough yards and two first-half touchdowns. He drew the starting assignment because sophomore Matt Jones is still recovering from a viral infection.

    Brown's reaction to possibly losing the starting nod next week against the in-state rival Miami Hurricanes?

    "You know what, we need [Jones] back, man," Brown said. "We've got about four to five backs. You need a lot of backs in a season. Can't wait to see Matt Jones back. Really can't wait to see him."

    When the players line up to come out of the tunnel during Florida's pregame introductions, the starters get to lead the way. Of all the new faces at the front of the line, Brown might have been the most emotional.

    "You lose a lot of confidence over the years, not playing," he said. "The last time I started was my senior year of high school.

    "I had tears in my eyes. I felt like I was useless the last couple of years."

    Mack ran well today. had some moves in the hole too. showed some versatility. after today, I would think he'd have the confidence to really make matt jones work hard to keep the starting position. Mack made one mistake - not picking up the blitz from the corner on driskel's fumble.

    all the backs had some good runs.

    Class act. Good to hear this after some no-so-good-Gator stories lately.
