UF coach Dan Mullen wants mild-mannered Gators to mimic The Hulk

Dan Mullen did not turn green like The Hulk. But at one point Monday, the 46-year-old coach looked at the cameras to grimace, growl and briefly unleash the monster within.

Mullen hopes his Gators will try to transform themselves, too, and turn from mild-mannered college athletes to unstoppable...

Gators' 2019 football schedule released

UF’s first meeting with Auburn since 2011 highlights the 2019 football schedule, released Tuesday by the SEC.

UF QB Feleipe Franks still moved by Hail Mary to beat Tennessee

Last season against Tennessee, UF quarterback Feleipe Franks enjoyed a moment the 20-year said, “still gives me chills.”

Franks also does not want his 63-yard game-winning Hail Mary against the rival Vols to define him.

The spectacular heave to Tyrie Cleveland stands out among big plays for Franks...

Blasphemy? UF coach Dan Mullen calls Rocky Top 'catchy tune'

By the time Saturday night’s visit to Tennessee kicks off, UF Dan Mullen will have “Rocky Top” ringing in his ears.

“I’ll be whistling Rocky Top by the end of...

UF rolls to 48-10 win over Colorado State, Gators get special teams boost

Dan Mullen danced in the locker room even though his Florida Gators’ offense stumbled on the field.

The scoreboard Saturday read: UF 48, Colorado State 10.

Mullen, though, knows the real score. His team has a long way to go.

“We’ve got a lot of things to work on, a lot of things to work on,” Mullen...

UF fans should be thankful Gators are light years ahead of FSU — and lay off Feleipe Franks

Be forewarned, Florida Gators fans, you are entering a no-complaining zone.

There will be no moaning, groaning, bellyaching or nitpicking in the wake of Saturday’s 48-10 victory over Colorado State.

I don’t want to hear how the offense looked pedestrian for much of the game.

I don’t want to hear...

UF special teams unit shines during Gators’ win over Colorado State

Coach Dan Mullen’s repeated emphasis of special teams paid off Saturday afternoon.

With the offense struggling, the Gators found alternative ways to score during their 48-10 win over Colorado State.

CSU’s first offensive possession ended when Rams punter Ryan Stonehouse mishandled the snap on fourth...

Three things we learned during Gators' 48-10 win against Colorado State

Three things we learned during Gators' 48-10 win against Colorado State:

1. Coach Dan Mullen plans to stick with quarterback Feleipe Franks.

Mullen made it clear after Saturday’s win Franks is not on a short leash. Mullen plans to stick with his choice at quarterback through thick and thin.

Dan Mullen, game's top coaches know challenges of debut seasons at new schools

Urban Meyer cried at LSU, Nick Saban lost to Louisiana-Monroe and Kirby Smart did little to make fans forget Mark Richt at Georgia.

All three big-name coaches had to navigate challenging debut seasons at big-time programs. Each would weather the storm and play for a national championship soon enough,...

UF receiver Trevon Grimes pushes to help Gators’ offense

Trevon Grimes knows sacrifice.

The 6-foot-5 sophomore from Fort Lauderdale gave up a potential career at Ohio State to come play for Florida, a school with arguably a far smaller chance of reaching the College Football Playoff semifinals. He knows about not getting attention from his quarterback....

UF QB Feleipe Franks to let his play do the talking

By Monday, UF quarterback Feleipe Franks was pretty much done talking.

Franks kept his comments short and not always so sweet. The ordinarily affable 20-year-old’s media availability lasted fewer than three minutes.

What more, anyway, was there to say about Saturday’s humbling, humiliating loss...

UF's struggles on defense becoming a dangerous trend for Gators

Last season was supposed to be a fluke for the Florida Gators’ defense, a one-season stumble never to be repeated.

Instead, the Gators’ defensive struggles are becoming a trend, born of bad habits and inferior recruiting during three years under former coach Jim McElwain.

The collapse of the Gators’...

UF DB Chauncey Gardner-Johnson contrite following Kentucky guarantee

Chauncey Gardner-Johnson likes to talk, both on and off the field.

On Sunday, the Florida Gators’ loquacious defensive back was forced to listen.

Three things we learned during Gators' 27-16 loss to Kentucky

Three things we learned during Gators' 27-16 loss to Kentucky:

1. The Florida Gators are still too soft.

One grueling offseason and a head coaching change could not wash away years of neglect. UF’s players emerged from Nick Savage’s strength program stronger, leaner and presumably meaner than a...

UF falls to Kentucky, Wildcats snap 31-game losing streak against Gators

UF coach Dan Mullen figured the Gators’ win streak against Kentucky had to end, calling it on Monday, “the nature of sports.”

Sometimes, nature can be cruel.

Mullen could not have expected a nation-leading streak dating to 1986 would end during his first season and first SEC game as Florida head...

31 and Done! After Kentucky ends streak, ‘Gator Standard’ is clearly sub-standard

It seemed only fitting that new Florida Gators coach Dan Mullen’s first game against Kentucky on Saturday night came on the night the Gators celebrated the 25th anniversary of their 1993 team — a team that beat Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, won a school-first Sugar Bowl and, yes, showed...

Gators without LB David Reese, pass rusher CeCe Jefferson against Kentucky

The Florida Gators will face Kentucky Saturday night without two defensive starters.

UF QB Feleipe Franks looks to build on breakout performance when Gators host Kentucky

One game cannot erase an entire, miserable season.

One win can, however, ease four decades of historic futility.

After a breakout performance against Charleston Southern, UF redshirt sophomore quarterback Feleipe Franks can move on, confident better days lie ahead.

Meanwhile, Kentucky coach Mark...
