Williams nabs two INTs in scrimmage

A few notes from today's scrimmage before I go donate platelets...

GAINESVILLE -- Converted safety Justin Williams, a redshirt sophomore, is adjusting well to his new position, according to UF coach Urban Meyer. Williams had two interceptions this morning [Wednesday] during the Gators' scrimmage.

How thin are the Gators at safety? Williams has only played safety for four days and already he is second string.

--Lawrence Marsh, a redshirt sophomore, appears to be a starter at defensive tackle after the first week of two-a-days. Marsh lost some weight over the offseason and coaches are pleased with his progression.

--If you're counting at home...That's Marsh and JUCO transfer Troy Epps at the tackle and nose tackle positions.

--Defensive end Jermaine Cunningham practiced today for the first time in over a week.

--Offensive lineman Jason Watkins recently had a mild concussion, according to the coaching staff.

--South Miami alum Javier Estopinan hasn't been getting many reps at DT over the last week. He'll probably start the season on special teams (punt defense). Estopinan was a starter last year but is recovering from his third ACL tear.

--Defensive end Duke Lemmens and linebacker Lorenzo Edwards both have pulled hamstrings, according to defensive coordinator Charlie Strong.

--With Percy Harvin out, running back/receiver Brandon James has apparently taken over as the Gators' multi-talented offensive threat. Meyer lauded James' effort during the scrimmage and says James and intimated that James could play a larger role this season than just a return specialist.

ANSWER TO THE TRIVIA QUESTION: Of the 10 players Gator Clause polled during media day, only true freshman defensive end William Green knew the capital of Montana.

Thanks Goodman!

Question.. How is Moody doing?
Holding on to the ball??

Does this mean Green will be starting?

Yeah, in the geography bee.


If Percy is still limping then it must mean he is still having problems. This is a HS injury that doesn't seem to get better, do you expect him to be ready for the 1st game?

No. I said this a month ago. I'd be surprised to Percy plays for more than five snaps against Hawaii.


Lawrence Marsh and Troy Epps as the starting DTs? Wow.

Gators in for a lot of shoot-outs this year.
