Grading the Florida Gators position groups after fall camp

GAINESVILLE -- Fall camp is over. Players are recuperating. Let's grade the team entering its practice-run game week...

Grades based on experience and depth.

OFFENSIVE LINE … B+

Florida’s only known commodity on offense, the line returns four starters, including a few potential All-Americans. Mike Pouncey, a three-year starter, moved from guard to center for his senior season. Tackle Marcus Gilbert is a returning starter as well. Guards Carl Johnson and James Wilson will have no problems running the option. Sophomore tackle Xavier Nixon started the Gators’ last five games in 2009. There is also plenty of depth beyond the likely starters, including tackles Matt Patchan and Kyle Koehne, guards Maurice Hurt and Jon Halapio and center Sam Robey.

QUARTERBACKS … C+

Starting quarterback John Brantley has waited patiently for his chance to lead the Gators. The redshirt junior has a great arm and he’s been effective in mop-up time over his two-year career, completing 71 percent of his throws for 645 yards and 10 touchdowns (one interception). He hasn’t started a game since high school, however, and road games in the SEC are tough on any seasoned veteran. UF’s depth at quarterback is thin. The back-ups — Trey Burton of Venice and Tyler Murphy of Connecticut — are both true freshmen.

RUNNING BACKS … C

The Gators can’t rely on their former quarterback/first-down machine anymore. Bruising former All-American quarterback Tim Tebow led UF in rushing for three seasons. Will UF have a featured running back this season? Who’s the short-yardage option? Who gets the ball on the goal line? Redshirt senior Emmanuel Moody has never lived up to his potential due to injuries. Junior Jeff Demps is fast but small. Can he carry the load? Sophomore Mike Gillislee could even contribute now that Chris Rainey has moved to receiver.

RECEIVERS … C

Florida always seems to have at least one returning star at receiver. Not this season. Everyone is unproven. Start with redshirt junior Deonte Thompson. He’s caught a lot of balls in practice from quarterback John Brantley over the years but little else. Next is redshirt-senior Carl Moore. The former JUCO transfer has done nothing at UF. Redshirt freshman Andre Debose is an unknown quantity as well. The same goes for bulked up redshirt sophomore Omarius Hines. There’s potential here but nothing is proven.

TIGHT ENDS … D

It doesn’t seem like UF did much in the way of preparing for life after Aaron Hernandez, last year’s tight end and the team’s leader in receptions. The Gators’ projected starter at this position is a redshirt freshman, Jordan Reed of Connecticut, who was initially recruited to UF as a quarterback. Reed’s back up is true freshman Gerald Christian of West Palm Beach Dwyer. Little used defensive lineman Earl Okine has been asked to help out in a pinch. Fullback T.J. Pridemore could be used in certain situations.

DEFENSIVE LINE … C

Finding a consistent pass rush among UF’s current defensive ends could be a challenge this season. Senior end Justin Trattou has been a third-down specialist until now. Senior end Duke Lemmens has recorded two sacks throughout his career with one start. Junior William Green is an unproven talent. Junior Lerentee McCray is a former linebacker. Freshman Ronald Powell was highly recruited but, well he’s a freshman and this is the SEC. Depth at defensive tackle — Omar Hunter, Jaye Howard, Terron Sanders, Lawrence Marsh and Brandon Antwine — could help.

LINEBACKERS … B-

Replacing former two-time All-American Brandon Spikes with either redshirt-freshman Jelani Jenkins or sophomore Jon Bostic could come with growing pains. Senior strong-side linebacker A.J. Jones, a three-year starter, provides experience. Speedy Brandon Hicks is back at weak-side after a strong finish to 2009. Depth is a concern. Sophomore Dee Finley is a converted safety. Senior Lorenzo Edwards has never started a game.

CORNERBACKS … B-

Must replace three contributors to either graduation or the NFL Draft, including All-American Joe Haden. Junior cornerback Janoris Jenkins is now a veteran starter but there is still plenty of room for improvement. Who starts opposite Jenkins? Moses Jenkins is the senior who has patiently waited his turn. The Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson grad is long-time special teams contributor. Redshirt sophomore Jeremy Brown returns from an injured back that sidelined him for two years.

SAFETIES … B

The back line is easily the Gators’ defensive strength. Strong safety Ahmad Black is a three-year starter with a reputation for consistent tackling and excellent awareness. Free safety Will Hill is long and athletic with plenty of speed but positioning has been an issue in the past. Freshman strong safety Matt Elam practiced at nickel back during the preseason. Depth is concern beyond Black and Hill. Sophomore free safety Josh Evans is inexperienced.

SPECIAL TEAMS … B+

As usual, Florida will feature some of the best special teams players in the country. Punter Chas Henry likely has a future in the NFL. Kicker Caleb Sturgis has plenty of leg but could work on his accuracy from last season. Return specialists are many with receiver Chris Rainey likely getting the first crack at replacing Brandon James on punts and kick offs.


OVERALL … B-

Harsh grades for the offense Jo but it's hard to argue with them. But you are grading the units on depth alone. Granted it's the biggest factor but I don't think you can just ignore talent and coaching. Those things do affect the final product.

There are some seriously athletic guys who are very hungry in the UF WR group. They also will be catching passes from a guy who has been grooming for this day for quite a while. I don't think anyone will question JB's ability to chuck it. Last year Greg McElroy was in basically the same position that Brantley is in this year. How'd that work out? I'm not saying UF is headed to Glendale but don't tell me that Brantley can't be very effective this year. IMO it's shortsighted to grade the QB group on depth alone because just about every program in the nation is screwed if their #1 goes down. it's more about how good your #1 is. I get it, being a starting QB in the SEC is no easy task especially out of the gate. But just as McElroy did it I see no reason why John Brantley, who will be standing behind a very good Oline, will not be able to be just as good or better. McElroy did struggle at times but was very good when he needed to be. I think all Florida fans would agree with that.

I'm far more worried about the RB's than I am about the WR's. We could see a healthy balanced group that is very productive or we could see an injured ineffective group that once again lacks a dependable power back. As great as Tebow was, he had a long term effect of hurting the development of the RB's and the WR's. He did make some impressive throws, but he also made some unimpressive ones and was quick to tuck and run. Brantley will definitely have more targets this year than Tebow had last year. DT, AD, Rainey, Moore, Hammond Jr...and maybe Dunbar, Dunkley, and Alli. Somebody better step up. Somebody will step up. Just an aside, will Urban try to "hide" Debose until October 2nd?

In the end it's all about balance for the Gators offense in 2010. The backs will get far more opportunities. Tebow had a lopsided 217 carries last year. There is very good talent at every position. There is no reason why this offense can't be very good.

The B- grade seems fair overall but I'm looking for an A- grade when all is done. Atlanta in 2010 is a great goal for this team. Winning in Atlanta that is. Nothing short of New Orleans (BCS title game location) will do in 2011.

Daniel that grade is about right due to you all having a lot of players with little experience in real games...Sometimes you have to be REALISTIC on your team expectations not OVER CONFIDENT OR ARROGANT on past performances.

Wow, I wonder what a bad team's grades would look like?

Dumb, dumb, dumb . . .

Just be honest is all.

Jo, as always nice work! Grades are a little harsh, but its the SEC, we have tough standards.

Daniel, nice post (unusual on this site...) I think I am less worried about the RB's and more worried about our play calling. I can't take seeing Demps get arm-tackled as he tries to run between the tackles. Hopefully they get him in space more effectively this year and use our bigger backs up the middle.

And as always Canes fans, thanks for hanging out on our site. I know yours is a little depressing these days and we're glad to have you!

GO GATORS!!!

Really harsh grades... I'm feeling a Tennessee of '99 season, P. Manning leaves, T. Martin steps in finally beats Florida, beats FSU for the Title... What u think Jo?

So w/ a B- grade then you'd rank UF around 20 in the preseason poll? Otherwise your grades make ZERO sense.

QB's>c+, RB's>c, WR's>c's, TE's>d, & u girls r ranked 4th & these grades r from ur local CHEERLEADER.
U'all play ALABAMA (in last years game BAMA called the dogs off)) in the 5th game of the season & then the nation will get ur true rankin (in the 20's).

13? BWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Almost 1500 AP voters know what we all know here...the canes are marginally relevant this year!

Cheer up angry canes guy, that beats being completely irrelevant.

It's monday morning cane tards. Fire up that fog machine and get busy.

CANES play any1, anywhere..

September 26, 2009.... Virginia Tech 31, Miami 7

It's a cane thang...u wouldn't understand

not even a single A-

how would you grade Bama's running backs?- B+

The backline is easily the Gators strength...so I give them a B. Cmonnnn man! (c) Tom Jackson

Good thing you aren't the Canes beat writer or else their report card would like some FCAT score's...F's across the board

didn't you mean Cooper City FCAT scores eric?

Hey Joe,

I like the critical eye on this. We have many question marks here so I think it's worth being conservative in evaluating both sides of the ball.

The biggest question mark will be DC. Can Teryl Austin scheme like Charlie Strong? Can he make half-time adjustments? This will make or break us in the SEC.

All,

Grades are based on experience and depth. Not grading potential here. Obviously, John Brantley doesn't have C+ potential! When I started the grades, I asked myself what an 'A' would be. I thought, 'A' stands for All-American. UF has had plenty in the past. This year, they're aren't any returning All-Americans, so B+ was the highest possible grade...Just because the tight ends received a 'D' grade does not mean they'r terrible. It just means that the projected starter is a redshirt freshman who has never started a game in the SEC and played QB in high school. Who knows, he might turn out to the be the next C.I., but for now we don't know anything about him.

-jo-

Grades are based on eperience not depth? Then why does it say "after fall camp?" This should be something before camp/the summer. But if it is a "grade after camp then I ask how can you accurately grade something you really know nothing about? You didn’t have access to any practices, you didn't see who emerged or went hard, you aren't aware of possible position moves (the o-line b/c of injuries) so therefore you didn't see anything for yourself. It's all speculation and assumptions.

RB's are a C huh? 2009 stats:

Demps 7.5 ypc
Rainey 6.5 ypc
Moody 6.5 ypc
Gillislee 8.6 ypc

Not sure I agree with your grade when every back averages a first down in 2 carries.

Joe,

According to your grades, UF's overall grade was actually a 2.5... which is a C+. Now I am pretty sure that a C+ is just above average right? So we could suffice with Florida's current talent level (according to you), they will end up barely in the top 25? Typical, average football team right? I would be real interested in seeing what grades you would give the Canes!

Who cares what U would give the Canes? Shannon will be fired at year end (or before) and "Mr. Whipple" will take over the dregs that are left.

lol GatorBud. What a bunch of hype that team is. The dolts think they have talent. They're good but the are VERY average at wayy too many places to make any noise. It's why they are preseason #13. These clowns talk up a bunch of nonsense like they are going to do something. They are not. We've been hearing that from them for a while now.

"Grades based on experience and depth."

Okay.

Ur head cheerleader/reporter gives the GAYtors an over all grade of c+.
U have a flip-flopin head coach, ur 3rd defensive coordinator since the end of last season, 3 arrests so far (30 under urbie), 1 player kicked off the team so far, 2 have transferred so far, ur HOF inductee (Emmitt Smith) 4gets 2 mention his alma mater..
ITS GONNA B A LOOOOONG SEASON GAYTORS SO KEEP THE PROZAC, A STRAIGHTJACKET & THE PADDY WAGON NEARBY..

Jo,

I thought the Gators led the SEC in rushing in 2009. How can you give them a "C" grade? Even without Tebow, they will get 150 more carries over the entire season. I think they deserve better than that.

________________________________________________

It's a preseason grade based on experience and depth. Jeff Demps is fast, but can he carry the load for UF? Emmanuel Moody has the potential to be a complete back, but his career has been affected by injuries. Mike Gilislee showed flashes of his potential last season and in the spring but he's still relatively unknown. Last season, Tebow -- by himself -- provided the base offense. We just don't know what to expect. Hence, the 'C' grade. It doesn't mean "average," so much as it means "unknown."

It's a cane thang...u wouldn't understand

Please don't grade my team. Uhhhhhh, I can't remember their name.....

....that's right, the $eminole$. Dadgumit!

If I only looked at the grades and tried to guess which team you were scoring I'd assume you were talking about a team just cracking the top 25 (maybe).

The only way these grades are fair is if every worst case scenario is played out, from mass injuries to every talented player with limited experience performing below expectation.

If that is your assumption just say so otherwise the entire exercise is pointless. Perhaps you'll be proven correct...even a broken clock is right twice a day.

plenty of places to point your finger

Dont the TE line up on the O-line?

Someone better do their homework. It is ludacris to give the Gators a B- or C+ as a rating. But when all is said and done, they will prove how stupid you are.

These grades are certainly doomsday scenarios. But if only grading on experience and depth, then these would have been the same grades going into Fall camp as they would be coming out of it. That is, if only basing on experience and depth (a freshman is a freshman), then no matter what took place during camp is irrelevant. Every team with several freshman at a position will always get a "D" or "F" on this scale regardless of potential (a 1-star recruit coming in vs. a 5-star recruit who had an outstanding fall camp is meaningless in this grading system).

Cleary, the best (funniest) comment so far is that Alabama's running backs would receive a B on this scale....

I think the point Joe is making is that it is difficult to render an opinion on unknown commodities, hence the low marks.

The one thing we should feel good about is that we didn't get hit with any catastropic injuries in camp (so far) -- like the CI injury of last year. Could you imagine if we had that beast running across the middle in '09?

Your grade has nothing to do with reality. USA Coaches poll #3, AP # 4. After we beat Bama we will be #1. Very stupid,to you they are unknowned commodities. The Gators are loaded again, sorry you can't see that,you will soon. BTW our O Line is an A plus for starters!!!!!!!!!!!

Joe why are u explaining anything to these homers....

Emmitt Smith is on line 1 & he wants 2 know what college he went 2.
Mercy harwin is on line 2 & he wants 2 know if any of the current GAYtors remember him..
Urbin myers is on line 3 & wants 2 know if he can go vacation after the 5th game against ALABAMA (wink, wink)...

Ted Bundy's ghost is at the foot of your bed laughing hysterically.

CANES play any1, anywhere.

Look at your breatheren Jo...turning on you like a lynch mob. Why? Because you didn't suck up to their ridiculous expectations.

Nebraska 62 Turds 24 (in a NC game no less)

Alabama 34 Turds 13 (in a SEC championship game no less)

Yes, those are actual scores in MEANINGFUL games...not some regular season game when one of the teams was in a down streak.

You should be rubbin' something else there Turd.

You nailed it chico, relevant games...something you haven't played in for a while.

Hey Angry Canes Guy, how many ACC championship games have you guys played in! Lemme guess...

...ummm, let's see, rhymes with hero....

....less than 1, more than -1...

....resembles a goose egg. Dang, it's on the tip of my tongue....

...arrggghh, I think I know, I think I know...DON'T TELL ME....

Hate to interrupt your thought, but when we were in 5th grade I boiled my soiled undies and made Angry Canes Guy drink the tea. I also made him write the letters G-A-Y on his t-shirt and walk around school sucking his thumb.

I take full responsibility for his foul behavior as an adult.

C'mon AGC, it's not too late to turn away from the dark side, I did.

Feel all better now Turd since you vetted 5x in a row about pure garbage? See, it doesn't matter what angle you take, you're done. In relevant comparisons 28 > 26 and 5 > 3. No matter that it took you 59 at bats to win your very first...well, anything...and that you have continued to underachieve in spite of your zillion dollar athletic fund, your stacked cement tomb full of fools, your legacy of cheating coaches and jailed players and the pathetic reality of when yet another disappointing season ends, there's nothing to look forward to but rows and rows of fat food joints and double wides. Futility is a drink you invented, and all your failed attempts to put real teams down will always end up being mocked. In the final analysis, you are, and will continue to be...losers.

No matter what time I come on here the same cane loser is here. Look clown your team has done nothing in how many years? You can't win a basketball conference. You consIder yourself football elite but you can't fill your stadium or afford a coach that is more than a lifetime assistant coach. Randy Shannon would never get hired at a major college program. Fact. Your biggest accomplishment lately is that espn documentary which shows what a dirty program was when you were winning. Doesn't it show Randy giving out payouts?your best days are behind you. Miami currently sucks.2 and 3 star players aren't going to dig you out of the acc cellar.your school president doesn't care about football. The facts are all staring you in the face. In simple terms canes suck.

watch out for infection

Gator fans, in my professional opinion, angry cane is a hapless stocker like myself. It tears at his very soul that you are having success and he is not. This is his twisted way of exerting control. I used to do the same stuff...and look what happened to me!

..I'm also here to remind everyone (cough, cough, Angry Cane, cough, cough) that my alma mater won the NC in 1991. Angry and his brethen always leave us out of the footnotes in their rants.

Did I read this article right? FAU is 16th in home ticket demand!? Hurricanes are 65th -- LOL

______________________________

The answer to your question is a resounding NO...you DIDN'T read it right. The article was about tickets PRICES, NOT demand, as you purposefully spun it. That doesn't come as a surprise to anyone though as you have tried to spin EVERYTHING about your program, from the lack of success, to the arrest rate of your criminal athletes, to the mental viability of your whacko coach, to the love interest of your blow boy wee Timmy. Why would we expect you'd do anything different with this article? Of course, there's always the possibility that your reading comprehension mimicks that of your online degree from Keiser College.

Whatever the reason, it's afe to say you're an envious loser, willing to lie and cheat to get your desired result. Geez, you must be a Gayturd...you follow the blueprint of your 'win at all cost' coach Urbie.

He's a turd fan. Of course his reading comprehension sucks.

Uh, oh, looks like someone didn't read the article! This is the FIRST sentence:

"College football fans – especially those in the Southeastern Conference -- should expect to pay more for game tickets in the SECONDARY MARKET."

That means ticket resale prices are through the roof -- a reflection of.....wait for it....wait for it....DEMAND.

Seems you guys mis-spun an unspinnable fact in an article.

LOL -- just like you 'spin' the viability of your program, your misplaced sense of persecution, and over inflated sense of worth in a world where you become more irrelevant as years go by.



He HAS been hired by a major college program dipshyt...5 time NATIONAL champion University of Miami.

Miami is a team that had tainted success(watch the movie clowns) for 20 years and now has fallen off the face of the earth. You are CURRENTLY irrelevant. You think having 5 championships makes you elite but it doesn't moron. Georgia, Illinois, California and Cornell have 5 championships.Tenn and Minnesota have 6. Are they elite?

Butch Davis keeps randys nads on his key chain for good luck.

I believe the topic on which the Angry Cane Guy is wishfully speaking to relates to face value prices. That study was done and released by the Oregonian, a publication in yep, you guessed it, Oregon.

By the way the Big 12 won the award for highest face value tix. SEC was third or fourth highest.

Hey Angry, I’m working to find the phantom poster on the UM blogs that is “terrorizing” everyone over there. Don’t worry Scully and I are on it. Haven’t found anything yet, but we’ll keep you up to date.

HA HA! These Hurricane dummies keep proving their dummy-ness. That rant above is hysterical -- all based on an incorrect read of the article in the Sun Sentinel.

It's bad enough to go on a ridiculous rant on someone else's blog, but to have the whole premise of your rant nullified due to your own poor reading skills!

That is worth the price of admission kids!

Keep it coming Cane-tards! This is almost better than the actual football.

28 > 26 HTH

The FACT remains you paid waaaayyyy too much for your education, where ever that was!

I have a feeling it wasn't UM, since all my UM friends are better at history and reading.

You are CURRENTLY irrelevant. You think having 5 championships makes you elite but it doesn't

Hey me again! Up here in my old haunt, U-dub. Polishing the 1991 NC trophy. I would like to take credit for being one and the same with that list of posters above. Funny thing is, I can't!

That ed-u-ma-cation didn't help much reading that Sun Sentinel article - did it?!

By root, do you mean show-up for games and support my team with private donations??

Check, Check.

Just wait until october when your beloved Saban gets the last of his teeth knocked out in Tuscaloosa. Maybe some day, Miami fans will have a team that can fight their own battles. Till then, they'll be forced to root for whichever SEC team lines up in front of the Orange and Blue...

Hate to get your orange & blue thong all tied up in knots, but you're only partially correct. We root for ANY team...SlEazy related or not...to gut you. Problem is, the OOC games you play are at Benny Hill and against teams with the SOS similar to Little Sisters of the Poor. For now, SlEazy teams will have to do!

What will the canes say when Ohio state burst their bubble early this year?

a. we are too young
b. it doesn't matter if we continue to lose, we are football elite just watch the movie featuring two life crew.
c. jacory had a bad hair day
d. mark nipple called a bad game
e. randy doesnt know how to call timeouts
f. we are a school that concentrates on academics not sports
g. not enough fan support
h. it was too cold and rainy, we are a warm weather team
i. the refs robbed us again
k. randy didn't clarify what the payouts would be so there was little incentive for the players

canes don't do excuses, we play anywhere anytime as long as the majority of our games are played against basketball schools......

"Maybe so, but Nicky has fire roasted Urbie's and eaten them as an appetizer."

Posted by: main entree coming soon!

Hey retard, Saban won last year but who won the year before? (Hint: the team won 31-20 on their way to a BCS National Title.) If I knew how to compute records as well as U fans, which it seems like you are light years ahead, I would say that head-to-head it's 1-1?
Its amazing that we actually have a conference game and appear in it yearly, too.

You need to see this great post on the Slantinel Turd blog..article on Urbie hitting the panic button.

Check it out:

Coach Meyer is an embarassment to the game. The guy allows criminals to not only stay on the team, but play. If it wasn’t for university rules suspending players, Meyer would never have a player sit out for anything. Beat woman up…that’s ok you can play. DUI…no problem. Drugs…here let me buy you some. Accepting $100k in cash from agents…hell Mike and Maurkice, you should have held out for $200k. Then when he loses a game because the officials couldn’t help them out with a win like so many other times, he starts his Fred Sanford imitation with the heart attack and hershey squirts in his pants, so people wouldn’t be so hard on him and feel sorry. He is a cheater, a loser and a king size turd.

Probably that we played the # 2 ranked team in the country, with one of the leading Heisman candidates at QB, ON THE ROAD in front of 100k+ roudy hometeam fans.

BTW genius..."j" comes after "i" in our alphabet...not "k"

You're reaching back to 2008 now moron? Don't you remember, you Turds defined that as the "past", which you define as "irrelevant". Plus, any W you had was clearly "tainted"...another of your favorite descriptions.

Hmmm....would you also say that 28 > 26? How about an easier one...would you also say that 5 > 3? Would you then also agree that you're a mental midget that just backed yourself into a corner? Do you know the meaning of "checkmate"?

Wow! Hateful people on both sides. Horrible. Childish. Like 5th graders. God bless....
