View from the press box: Football tidbits

There's only so much one can see when watching the Gators play on television. That's why Inside the Gators is returning its "View from the Press Box" feature for 2012 - a look at things that might have gone unnoticed during the broadcast. Here's what we saw Saturday:

* More than two hours before kickoff, a large group of recruits gathered at midfield to talk, take pictures and greet each other. At previous home games, commits Nick Washington and Ahmad Fulwood had hung out at midfield, but this group was much larger.

* Backup quarterbacks Tyler Murphy and Jacoby Brissett were out on the field early warming up with a few wide receivers.

* Injured defensive back Cody Riggs is still wearing a walking boot. For the first time this season, Buck linebacker Ronald Powell was on crutches. It was later announced that Powell recently had a "revision" done to his injured knee.
