    Mullen Discusses Cox's Arrival, Departures of Huggins and Banks
    UF Scott Carter / Senior Writer
    Florida head coach Dan Mullens hopes newcomer Brenton Cox Jr. can get waivers from the NCAA and SEC to play immediately.
    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – In what has been a summer of online verbal sparring beyond even the normal standard between Florida and Georgia fans, the Gators' quick addition of former Bulldogs linebacker Brenton Cox Jr. turned up the volume last week on social media.

    Not much changed Monday after UF head coach Dan Mullen said the program is trying to get Cox waivers from the NCAA and SEC to be eligible to play this season. Cox played in 13 of 14 games a season ago at Georgia and finished with 20 tackles, a sack and two tackles for loss.

    A five-star recruit out of Stockbridge, Ga., Cox was offered a scholarship by UF coming out of high school but chose to sign with Georgia over the likes of Alabama, LSU and Ohio State.
    "We're definitely going to apply for a waiver for him and see," Mullen said. "We feel good about it. I think if you look at all the previous scenarios that are out there around the country, we feel we have a good opportunity."

    watched the press conference and was disappointed that nobody asked about any position changes due to the loss of two members of our secondary this week.
