Florida Gators Preview 2014 Record 7-5

See the Latest Odds


Overview: The Florida Gators have had two rough years in a row, but they are to good of a program to continue playing like this. Last year they improved on their previous year and finished 7-5. The Gators have made some changes this offseason and their biggest was hiring head coach Jim McElwain, who will try to get Florida out of their slump.

 Offense: One of Florida’s biggest problems was they were primarily a defensive minded team. Jim McElwain who is an offensive minded coach will try to even it out this year. The biggest battle for a starting job will be at quarterback between Will Grier and Treon Harris. Treon started six games last year throwing for 1019 yards with 9 touchdowns and also adding 332 yards on the ground with 3 rushing touchdowns. Now that Matt Jones has left, running back Kelvin Taylor will be the lead running back. Last year he rushed for 565 yards and 6 touchdowns while splitting carries. Wide receiver Demarcus Robinson will likely be the number one receiver. He caught 53 passes for 810 yards and 7 touchdowns.

 Defense: Despite Florida’s struggles their defense has been good. The Gators have arguably one of the best secondaries in the nation. Led by Vernon Hargreaves III who has been and All-SEC cornerback twice. Jon Bullard decided to return for his senior year and will be a tremendous help for the defensive line. Florida's defense should have another solid year.

 Special Teams: Florida’s kicker will likely be Austin Hardin who was 7-10 last year in field goals. Jonny Townsend will likely be the punter he averaged 42 yards a punt on 29 punts in 2013.

 Overall: The Florida Gators are on the rise and took a big step forward with hiring Jim McElwain. If he can fix this offense, Florida will be a hard team to beat. The Gators should be solid on defense and better on offense, but they continue to have injuries and that is their biggest problem. I think Florida will continue to improve and finish the season with a 9-3 record.
