UF defeats UAB 36-7, ending Gators' five-game skid

In the stands, chants for Chip Kelly came from the UF student section.

On the field, the Gators were busy settling for too many field goals.

UF kicker Eddy Piñeiro delivers one of best games of his career

About one month ago, during Florida’s game against LSU, UF kicker Eddy Piñeiro missed an extra point. The Gators lost by one.

Looking back now, Piñeiro said he was glad he missed.

“That miss was the biggest blessing in my life,” Piñeiro said on Saturday.

Pineiro said he used it as motivation to...

Whether it's Chip Kelly or not, new Gators coach must clean up McElwain's monumental mess

A word of advice for Chip Kelly, Scott Frost, Dan Mullen or whoever the poor soul is who inherits the smoldering tire fire that former Florida Gators coach Jim McElwain has left behind:

You better be an offensive genius, a defensive mastermind, a relentless recruiter, a strength and conditioning...

Struggling Gators playing for pride when resurgent UAB visits the Swamp Saturday

UAB was supposed to offer a breather for coach Jim McElwain’s Florida Gators.

Veterans would make short work of the Blazers and younger players would get a chance to strut their stuff in the Swamp during mop-up time.

Until recently, this had become a tradition on the third Saturday each November...

UF punter Johnny Townsend snubbed for prestigious award

Johnny Townsend is the nation’s second-leading punter and might be the Florida Gators’ MVP, but that was not enough to sway voters for the prestigious Ray Guy Award.

Townsend was not among 10 semifinalists announced Thursday for the award given annually to college football’s top punter.

Townsend...

No. 8 Gators rout North Florida 108-68 for second straight 40-point win

UF sharpshooter Egor Koulechov stole the show on Monday night.

Three days following the Gators’ season opener, everyone else joined in as the nation’s No. 8 team made quick work of overmatched and exhausted North Florida.

Playing their fourth road game in six days, the Ospreys (0-4) did not stand...

For Gators, Chip Kelly is a big fish, but can he survive in the Swamp?

Chip Kelly checks one box and only one box if indeed he becomes the next head coach of the Florida Gators.

Don’t get me wrong, the box he checks is a VERY big box, but it’s still only one box.

Kelly, who is considered a serious candidate for the UF job left vacated after Jim McElwain was fired...

UF linebacker David Reese emerges as Gators’ leader during difficult season

UF middle linebacker David Reese did not plan to do it or even want to do it, but somebody had to do it.

Reese’s tough words for his teammates after some of them had quit during a dispiriting 45-16 loss Nov. 4 at Missouri were bold coming from a 19-year-old.

“I feel like this is something that...


11/15/2017 04:55 PM
UF's Egor Koulechov moving past his dazzling Gators' debut

UF coach Mike White does not know what Egor Koulechov will do for encore following his 34-point debut Sunday against Gardner-Webb.

“I don’t think he’s going to be caught up on how...


11/14/2017 06:55 PM
Gators focused on strong finishes with two home games left this season

UF interim coach Randy Shannon said the Gators have found motivation beyond making a bowl game.

“At this point, guys are not thinking about bowls or we cannot go to the bowl,” Shannon said. “The only thing they’re thinking about is coming back to the Swamp, two home games that they can go and play...

UF newcomer Egor Koulechov leads Gators to rout of Gardner-Webb

All shooting guard Egor Koulechov could do was smile.

He was not alone on Monday night.

A UF fan base starved for excitement and offense lately was treated to plenty of both during the No. 8 Gators’ 116-74 season-opening win against Gardner Webb.

With the school’s football program piling up losses...

UF QB Feleipe Franks shows improvement coming off bench at South Carolina

Back in August, Florida Gators quarterback Feleipe Franks braced himself for the twists and turns of his first college football season.

Suspensions, injuries, five straight losses and a head coaching change have left the 19-year-old’s head spinning...

UF center T.J. McCoy injured at South Carolina, further decimating Gators' O-line

UF center T.J. McCoy sustained an injury to his left foot Saturday at South Carolina to leave the team’s offensive line searching for more answers entering the final two games.

UF drops fifth straight game with 28-20 loss at South Carolina

This time, the Florida Gators — those of them who remain — showed fight but still couldn’t score an elusive win.

Three things we learned during Gators' 28-20 loss at South Carolina

Three things we learned during Gators' 28-20 loss at South Carolina

1. The drop-off on defense has been farther and faster than expected.

Growing pains were expected, but the Gators have gone from a top-10 defense to one barely inside the top-50. UF has given up 115 points during the past three...

UF defense struggles during loss at South Carolina

Late in the third quarter, linebacker Vosean Joseph caught an interception on his back shoulder after making a smart cut in front of a South Carolina receiver.

But for every impressive play Joseph made, there seemed to be one that hurt Florida. Just a few drives earlier, Joseph was out of position...

Gators would be better off if they'd kept Will Muschamp, signed Lamar Jackson

Running off at the typewriter. …

As the failing, fading Florida Gators get ready to play Will Muschamp’s South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday, who would have ever thought that three years ago we’d be saying, “You know, UF would have been much better off it had just kept Muschamp.”

Yes, the recently...

Former UF coach Will Muschamp looks to hand Gators fifth straight loss

This week, Will Muschamp cashed another check from UF, his former employer.

On Saturday, Muschamp — $787,500 richer — looks to deliver some payback.

Florida arrives looking for a new head coach almost three years since it fired Muschamp the day after he lost to South Carolina, his future employer.

Sharp-shooting Gators guard Egor Koulechov quickly winning over fans

Days in Israel started early for 13-year-old Egor Koulechov. Much work was to be done.

Koulechov fancied a future in basketball, but realized it was a long way off.

“I was really bad,” he said.

But Koulechov also was determined, and so was his father, Michael.

“I remember between like 8th and 9th...
