    Maybe, as long as we keep winning.

    He may have made a pact with the team and that’s why the defense is playing better.

    If so, we might not know until after the season. Wouldn’t want to jinx it.

    And we knew going into this game, they had to be at their best. Nothing special about UFs Special Teams

    the reality is the Gators are turning the corner....coach Napier will have a championship team in 2 years...just like Urban....the GATORS are back!!!! Now crush Vandy and the holes and an 8-4 season with a win in a bowl and we're 9-4...just like urban...the future is bright...and with a top 10 class coming in...

    We are not yet who we will/want to be, but we sure as hell aren't who we were when Billy took this job. I'm thrilled with the giant leap forward on D. That was a real, "no doubt about it" FLORIDA GATOR DEFENSE we saw tonight. Of course, we did leave lots of points on the field in the second half, and there is plenty of room for improvement on O overall. But the running game is beastly and the cure for the passing game is more time and reps for AR (he really needs to come back for his own sake next year) and the already excellent WR class that will arrive in '23. If we take the momentum from these last two games forward, we should finish strong both on the field and on the recruiting trail. The days of being able to take the Gators lightly, by anyone, are numbered. Billy is a gem, both as a coach and as a Human Being We are beyond lucky to have him. GO GATORS!

    Napier and company are turning it around, big time. Solid improvement all around as the season progressed. AR is a C+, but if we can get him to a B+ or A, we will kill people. He needs to see the field better, but he is a first year starter, so this is to be expected, and I have high hopes for him, especially since he is a solid person that I think we can count on. Special teams really need to improve, but the D has shown incredible improvement. All you guys poking fun at big Dez need a giant helping of crow. Remember Billy talking about the D early in the season and saying roughly "...If one guy doesn't do his job or is out of position.." then we get beat? I think we know who that '"one guy" was.

    I for one, am super excited about our direction, particularly given all the over all off field program improvements.

    Go Gators!!!

    Beggars can’t be choosers. It would have been nice to put together a nice 2nd half offensively also.

    2 c'mon man's for a question that needs to be asked??? No greater fan than I, but...
    "Florida’s special teams unit has been bad all season and they may have hit rock bottom in week 11. Florida had two botched field goal attempts, a fumble on a punt return, and a 48-yard fake punt pass for a touchdown to allow the only points of the game for the Gamecocks. I noticed that Adam Mihalek’s extra points were coming in very low, so I was not surprised to see one blocked."

    Should that not be a question asked at his press conference?

    It's a valid/honest question. No one should negative rep that.
