    Hope to hear more from you Zach. Nice work.

    Zach, I know I said it before but, I really hope Champ didn’t just screw himself over with Denson. He got unfairly pushed aside for Dawson last minute interest as a bandwagon fan. We’re not even in Dawson’s top three. Would have offered Denson right in front of him to let Dawson know Florida Gators waits for no man.

    Zach, I am just curious why do some players choose one of the All-star games over the other? For instance, a guy like Kelvin Taylor would presumably have his choice. Why UnderArmour over Army or vice versa?

    Agree about Denson. Hope we are in better standing with Dawson than it appears from the outside.
    Looks like UF will ultimately have about a dozen future Gators in these two games. Nice.

    I hope we can get Denson… I just think he is going to be a beast at the next level from watching how strong he came on over the summer. I’m really starting to like our chances on Gilmore also, especially if LSU takes a loss this week. So, if we were to add those 2 plus Harris… then that is a boat load of talent entering the program….

    Zach,
    Saw your Tweet last night about Gilmore. Have you been able to speak with him about the tweet?

    Go Gators

    Love Ira Denson! Dude is SEC run-block ready NOW! What’s the hold up??? With all the future Gators/targets listed, St. Pete looks like the place to be on 1/4. Hope we open up the offense and begin to develop our passing game. What better time to do so than now, against ‘live’ action (see schedule)? There may be growing pains, but growth is the objective and growth often requires pain. Quick slants, quick outs, out and up, high/low combination routes, screens, quick check down to backs to get in space, perhaps some go routes or what would be great is an AUDIBLE vs. an over loaded box! Is that still allowed? I think my frustration comes from not seeing much progression in several areas. Let’s get better, MARKEDLY BETTER for the remainder of this year and the years to come!

    Lets petition Champ to give Denson his scolly already. HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN IN THE FOLD IF WE STOP WAITING ON kids. Take the man that knows what he wants in life. He will fight harder to get things done. Love the job the staff is doing but lets not let pride and stubborn behavior get in the way. It already cost us one lose on the field. Lets not let it cost us off the field as well. What do you think Zach.

    petition the coach to recruit a player…good one!
    would love to get Denson though

    Zach- since it’s looking like UF struck out on Dawson and might’ve burned bridges with Denson, is Denver Kirkland still a possibility? I haven’t seen him mentioned.

    by Phil

    Since the mysterious top three from dawson came out without us in it and the burnt bridge with denson, do we really need another guard ? What about taking a guy like trenton brown, and pushing a tackle to guard over the spring ? Any possibilities of that happening Zach ? Go Gators !!!!

    Are we too late with Denson? I haven’t heard that anywhere else, so I’d love some insight on the situation.
