    I'd also add that covid was not limited to Gainesville and every other team in the country dealt with the same situation so why we ended up at the bottom of the pile is still a valid question.

    As for the DL - digging the bigger players and thought of carter at DE. Cox can come in on obvious passing downs but the next time that guy sets the edge on a run will be the first. Until he shows he can be a 3 down player, play him for 1 or 2 downs.

    So nothing about the actual scrimmage and just pumping on feelings?

    I sure hope the defense improves because its hard to imagine it could get any worse. I'd expect our DL is handling our OL at this point and take that as a good sign. Very interested to actually hear about how the 1's vs 1's are going in those scrimmages. We haven't really recruited really well at OL and having to move Gouraige to LT isn't ideal. White is going to have to workout at RT and Harrod Im guessing will be the depth. We are lacking in depth so any injuries will be a blow. Thats mostly what I am hoping not to hear about from scrimmage reports tbh.

    Hmm. Trying White at RT would be interesting. Wondering if he moves well enough for a tackle. Always assumed he would be a career interior guy.

    A slight correction. A “dirty” defense is what Mickey Andrews used to produce at FSU. The hope is that our defense will be “nasty”.

    Cox in the dime? Odd to me, but who knows.

    Mullen has apparently called out Cox to be more consistent. Not sure if that was an evaluation, or, just motivation.

    Last year Cox standing up in a dime was a recipe for him to fail covering somebody, while having him with his hand in the dirt on 1st down was a recipe for him to lose containment. The guy was a one down player last year that only functioned in obvious passing downs - yet he played 3 downs.

    If his capabilities do not change it is on the coaches to only use him at the right time (put carter/dexter on the edge for containment). Watching was painful last year and we should not see a sequel.

    Yep. Kid has a bunch of development necessary to be a net asset instead of a net liability. Hopefully he expands his skill set over the next 5 months.

    Gouriage has been slated for LT since he got here and White is a C/G, he's never going to play Tackle. Where are you getting this stuff from?

    Braun could play T, but right now he's the starting RG with Delance starting at RT. Harrod and Tarquin are the backups at T, and there's quite the mix of interior backups - Equakan, Moore, Mincey, Leonard, McDowell, Simonds, etc.,. In addition to the starting 5, we have another 7 OL that played for us last year and 4 more that will be on the roster next Fall.

    IMHO, if Braun could play tackle, he would be our RT. We have the OGs, not the OTs.

    Did the players mention whether the no tackle rule applied to just the gators?

    I hear the offensive line is the best in decades. Of course that might change by the time we get to fall

    Poor tackling not related to lining up incorrectly AND late.

    Fair point. Only time I remember was a linebacker blitz and he drifted back to cover space but not the receiver (LSU game maybe?). Fair point - maybe he can do this but he really needs to beef up to set the edge which makes this ability even tougher.

    Did the LB blitz or drop into coverage? And was it Cox?

    I think Cox is large enough to set the edge, but does he have the will to do it? Or will he continue to attempt to shoot around the blocker?
