GAINESVILLE -- A few minutes to kickoff here at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. New scoreboards are impressive. The band is still mediocre. A few observations before we get going...
--As reported by this blog a few days ago, sophomore safety Will Hill is starting ahead of Ahmad Black.
--Tight end Christopher Coleman is on crutches. As if UF had some surplus of tight ends.
--Second-string middle linebacker Brendan Beal is wearing a neck brace. He's not playing. Guess that makes freshman Jon Bostic the No.2 man on the depth chart.
--Can't find receiver Carl Moore on the sideline. Moore is suffering from an injured back with no real timetable for a return. Not good.
--There are recruits here despite this being a ho-hum season opener. Pretty sure I saw QB Trey Burton cruising the sidelines.
