Notebook: Driskel's surgery scheduled

GAINESVILLE -- Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel will have season-ending surgery Wednesday on his broken right fibula.

The junior sustained the gruesome injury in the first quarter of No. 20 Florida’s 31-17 win over Tennessee on Saturday.

“That’s part of the game, but it’s very difficult to deal with,” coach Will Muschamp said.

“It really hurt for him, his family and us as a football team.”

Muschamp said doctors would insert a metal plate in Driskel’s leg. The recovery process is roughly 4four to six months.

Redshirt junior Tyler Murphy filled in admirably (218 total yards, two touchdowns) and will make his first career start on the road at Kentucky (7:00 p.m., ESPNU).

Murhpy said it was difficult to see Driskel go down and said UF’s injured incumbent starter told him: “It’s your time, now.”


Muschamp updated the statuses of the rest of Florida’s hobbled starters. Cornerback Marcus Roberson (knee) and right tackle Tyler Moore (ankle) both missed Saturday’s victory but are expected to play against the Wildcats.

Tailback Valdez Showers (ankle) is doubtful.

Reserve tight end Colin Thompson will miss “one or two weeks” with a stress fracture in his foot. 


Sophomore linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. was named the SEC's Defensive Player of the Week after Saturday's standout performance against Tennessee. 

Fowler had three tackles -- all for a loss -- a sack and two forced fumbles. 



"I actually didn't know that [redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman] was starting until right before we ran out of the tunnel. I didn't know who he was. I don't remember seeing him on film. ... I didn't know he didn't make it to halftime. I thought he played the whole game. I couldn't really tell the difference [between Peterman & backup Justin Worley]. I really don't care. When the quarterback is in the game I just want to hit him."

--- Fowler Jr. on Tennessee's quarterback quagmire 


"Turnover are like points. Six turnovers in a game is a lot. I wouldn't be suprised if we get candy or something."

--- Fowler Jr. on Florida's defensive effort against the Vols 


Redshirt freshman Skyler Morhinweg is Florida's backup quarterback. Freshman Max Staver will slide into the No. 3 role. ... Cornerback Brian Poole will be suspended for the first half against Kentucky after being ejected for a targeting penalty in the fourth quarter versus Tennessee. ... CBS invoked its six-day window for Oct. 5 games --- including the Arkansas-Florida matchup. The Gators will host the Razorbacks at either 3:30 p.m. (on CBS) or 7 p.m. (on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU).

I guess Tenn "gave" UF those turnovers...right?

No, but UF gave Miami of Florida that game a few weeks back.

Be careful Colin, the obsessed cane loser might blow a gasket. Going on 3 weeks now, and he's still harping on that lucky win the canes came away with.

Gatr maggot's view of history:

- The Japanese gifted the Pacific theater to the US.
- Napoleon gifted the war to the Russians.
- Axis gifted WW II to the Allies.
- The Confederacy gifted the Civil War to the Union.

What do they all have in common with you, Gatr Trash?


7 - 8. Never forget.

I predict 10 posts before noon from the resident 42 year old virgin. 42 years old and obsessed with the gator blog. No need to say anything more.

While channel surfing for hot chicks in the stands at other games, I came across that UF vs MOF (Miami of Florida) game. How do the Gators roll up 400+ yards while MOF could barely log 200 and still lose?

Obviously something was afoot, the fix was on.

The gator chomp is what the meth-heads do when they need another fix.

Chomp chomp, maggots.

7 of 8. Never forget.

"How do the Gators roll up 400+ yards while MOF could barely log 200 and still lose?"

That's easy. The Gatr Trash sucks. From coach to QB to AD.

Doesn't take a pedophile voyeur Professor of Veterinary Medicine at the state's largest public diploma mill to answer that one, Gomer.


"Baton Rouge, LA (FOX51) — One Auburn fan who visited Baton Rouge never got the chance to see the big match-up. That’s because he was behind bars after he allegedly stole a truck, kidnapped a woman, and hit several parked cars."

Keep it classy, maggots.

I didn't realize MOF gave up 400+yards to the 106th ranked offense. Obviously the Gators gave that game to MOF. Even I know that and I'm just a..

Ha! Ha! You gaytor fans suck. And now that my re-hab group meetings scheduled for today have all been canceled, I'll be posting here all day!

Will someone please post on our blog?

Insults, knock-knock jokes, anything. Please?

Resident 42 year old virgin.
That is very funny indeed.
Sid The Subhuman Cane Moron has said he is 43 years old and lives in a rec room of a house with no plumbing. A stinky loser.
But you are wrong in predicting just 10 posts, this loser doesn't have anything else to do.

"Sid The Subhuman Cane Moron has said he is 43 years old and lives in a rec room of a house with no plumbing."

Sid does not live in Trailerville. You are mistaken. Those with no pluming infest Trailerville.

Doesn't take a pedophile voyeur Professor of Veterinary Medicine at the state's largest public diploma mill to know that, Gomer.

A University of Florida veterinary professor was arrested Friday afternoon on charges of video voyeurism for allegedly using a camera pen to secretly record images of the bodies of students on campus, according to an arrest report by the University Police Department.

Don A. Samuelson, 65, of 6415 NW 56th Lane, was charged with several counts of video voyeurism of someone age 19 or older.

UPD police Chief Linda Stump on Saturday said the investigation is continuing.

UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said Samuelson is on administrative leave.

"In a situation such as this one with serious allegations, the appropriate action to pursue would be termination," Sikes said, adding that part of the ongoing investigation involves whether other women may have been video-recorded.

The arrest report lists three incidents from April through Aug. 30 in which Samuelson is accused of using a camera pen with an integrated thumb drive to record images of areas of women's chests and thighs.

One of the women became aware of the recording as it was occurring on Aug. 30, police reported.

Samuelson confessed to the allegations, the report states, saying he did it for his amusement, entertainment, sexual arousal or gratification.

The camera pen was seized from Samuelson's office by police with a search warrant.

In an incident around April 10, Samuelson pointed the camera pen toward the woman's chest in the V-neck of her shirt, police said. Around June 6, Samuelson is accused of recording images of an area of a woman's chest. On Aug. 30, the report alleges, he recorded images of a woman's chest and her upper inner thighs.

I wonder if Erin Andrews wears jorts?! She's hot like the chick in my morning group-session I've been trying to bang.



Did the Gatr Trash puppet major in Instagram, Vine or StarCraft?

Bitter response in 3, 2, 1......

Damn! Just dropped my cig on my new Ed Hardy douche-cape with the low cut neck (the one I shaved my back and shoulders for). At least I got the coffee stain out of my True Religion jeans.

Hey stupid cane fan. Check out the below link


10 posts before noon? Boy, that was wrong. More proof that the 42 old virgin is a degenerate loser. What's wrong, did you pop your plastic girlfriend?

Told you so, this sid the moron cane is one big loser

Wow, the Gatr Trash has to dig pretty deep. 5 years back. Meanwhile, the UFraud makes headlines everyday.

Up-jort pedophile voyeur professors.

The list goes on and on and....

C'mon, Gatr Trash, bring up Shapiro. That is timely. How about, maybe, Warren Sapp's drug tests. That is only 20 years old. I mean, Hernandez's drug tests are only 5 years old.

Those who live in smelly trailertrash mobile homes should not be casting stones.

Ownership has its privileges.

You are OWNED.

..like our stadium! Oh wait a minute, bad example.

Hey internet nerds, no one cares about your fake internet rivalry anymore.

Go follow college football or piss off.

Awwww, Gatr Trash. Your crap skewwwl doesn't own its stadium either. It is owned by the state's taxpayers.

I know. You live in ignorance. You went to UFraud for 7 years of undergrad and learned nothing. It's not my fault.
