The Florida Gators basketball team is gearing up for the SEC tournament, and the baseball team kicked off their season last weekend. But what we are all waiting for is still 194 days away.
August 31, 2013, the football team will kick off against Toledo to begin another season.
Despite a disappointing showing in the Sugar Bowl, year two under Will Muschamp should be considered a huge success. The Gators called on the experience of their veteran players, solid defense and special teams in 2013 to finish the season 11-2.
However, the Gators will have a very different look in 2013. Gone are veteran leaders on defense Sharrif Floyd, Jon Bostic, Jelani Jenkins and Matt Elam. As well as the sure-footed Caleb Sturgis, who's accuracy and kicking power changed the way that Brent Pease would call plays on offense.
Is it too soon to give you a game-by-game prediction of how the new-look Gators will fare in 2013? Probably. But that doesn't mean we can't have fun with this way-too-soon look at next season.
