Orange....Blue: Pre-Season Practice Begins for the Florida Gators

The University of Florida football team began pre-season practice this week, and according to the local daily the Gainesville Sun, the team is aiming for perfection -- an undefeated season. Although the Gators have won three national championships, the team had one loss in each of those years.

Whether or not the Gators go undefeated, if the team wins the national championship, this season would continue the "embarrassment of riches" for Florida sports fans. Together, the basketball and football teams have won 4 national championships in 4 years. I'll settle for 5 (with or without a loss).

Darren,

I have not been as interested in a sports team since Danny White played for Frank Kush at Arizona State. The deeper story is what the UF athletic department and Urban Meyers have brought to the way they do business. Weird aside - his son can only be thankful that he was not named Suburban. Meyers has assembled a superb coaching staff, trusting them with most parts of the game. He concentrates on special teams. I can attest that, after having watched every game over the last four years, it has had a huge impact on their success. Game changers. Shock and awe.

Regards,
Roy

As a Gator "by birth," I am thrilled by Meyers' performance. He is a class act, and so are the players.

Danny White in college - that was a loooong time ago!

Darren,

I could be your daddy. Or maybe your grand daddy.
