    I want to see Anthony Richardson excel, along with Ricky Pearsall. And Nayquan Wright and Lorenzo Linguard have monster years!

    On defense, I want to see turnovers, defensive scoring, and limiting opponents to less than 10 points per game average (hey dream big, expect much!)

    Cut down the penalties on both sides of the ball. Line up quickly and correctly on Def.

    Fewer penalties. Improved defense. As few injuries as possible.

    Top of the ridge
    Large drop in number of penalties
    Better defensive play and play calling
    Attention to the details each game day, each series, each play

    I would like a defense that is disciplined and far less penalties. Plus a strong OL with Lingard getting a lot of playing time.

    AR to stay healthy all year
    Young guys that have shown out in practice to get lots of PT and grow (Shemar James, Devin Moore, Trevor Etienne, and I'm sure we'll have more)
    Special Teams to actually impact games

    Just two things: to see the team progressively improve as the year goes on and to see mistakes corrected rather than repeated every game.

    That's all.

    I want retro early 90's Florida defenses that actually scared opposing teams, I want a running game that leads to chunk play after chunk play

    It's all good. Ditto.

    1. I would love to see defensive backs break on the ball. (I miss the old days when they intercepted more - no hesitation)
    2. Love to see better red-zone offense! TD's vs Kicks
    3. Love to see the team just drive down the field and score. Instill their will relentlessly.
    4. Love seeing our defense create havoc. Disruptive, fumble creating sacks machine.:eek:
    5. Special teams: Blocked kicks and punt and pick off returns with major chunk yards.
    I'll leave it at that. Don't want to be too greedy!:rolleyes::p

    Go Gators.;)

    Fundamentals. That and limited penalties. If the staff can make that change, everything else is gravy.

    Good gosh, thought provoking. Don't know. Cannot separate what's fair and reasonable with what I want to feel inside.

    I want to win all the games we're favored in....And at least one where we're 'dogs.

    In other words: No more underachieving.

    This is huge! I hate seeing the same boneheaded mistakes. Yes, learn from your mistakes and grow as a player!

    Is it just me, or have the Gators, in the past, mostly played up to their competition? In other words, play teams like Samford and allow them to staye in the game, instead of pulverizing them!
