Fall Practice Breakdown
Curiosity should be at an all-time high when Florida begins practice this morning. The Tim Tebow era is over, and John Brantley's time has begun.
The questions are endless. What will the Gators look like without one of the best players in college football history? Will the spread option still be a vital part of coach Urban Meyer's offense? Will the Gators operate out of a pro-style offense built around Brantley's strengths? Can the offense do anything it wants and be successful behind possibly the nation's best offensive line? And on the other side of the ball, will an inexperienced but fast, talented defense remain among the nation's best?
Unfortunately, you won't get a hint at any of the answers until the opener against Miami Ohio on Sept. 4 because all practices are closed. What's left are speculation and guesswork based on spring drills and history.
We might as well start that speculation and guesswork here with some lists for you to peruse while you remember what it was like to look at practice.
