Florida Gators Football Tickets - Overview
3/13/14: The University of Florida has a history of great (college) quarterbacks. The names on the list are familiar to college football fans: Tim Tebow, Chris Leak, Danny Wuerfle. Even the 'Old Ball Coach' Steve Spurrier played for the Gators in the 1960's and won the Heisman Trophy. The Gators have Jeff Driskel slated as the starting QB again, but they need to give him some help to become the elite QB he was drafted to be. That starts with getting the offensive line in shape. Every QB is better with a strong O-line. He could also use some help at the skill positions. They certainly have talent on the roster, now it is just getting them ready to play.
3/6/14: Gator Nation may have lost four of the past five games against the Florida State Seminoles, but they do own the all time lead in the series at 34-22-2. The rivalry will continue between Tallahassee and Gainesville, as the two schools agreed upon an extension through 2018. Traditionally, they alternate home games, and that will continue. FSU will host in 2014, 2016, and 2018, while the Gators are at home in 2015 and 2017. This is pretty much a formality at this point, but the Noles want to keep the Gators on the schedule, and it is good for the state as a whole when they meet around Thanksgiving every year.
2/27/14: The Gators have a lot of rebuilding to do and a lot of trust to regain from their fans and boosters. They will have a new look in the secondary next season, partly due to players leaving for the pros. Another, Cody Riggs, transferred from UF to Notre Dame. He is a grad school transfer so he can join the Irish right away and play in 2014. Riggs played 40 games for the Gators, primarily at cornerback. He projects to be a safety in the NFL, so he may have transferred so he could get more experience at that position while in college rather than have to learn the spot in the pros.
2/20/14: UF football is still incredibly popular, particularly in the state of Florida. Even though they fell to 4-8 last season and have been lapped by rival and National Champion Florida State, and even though they are getting taunts set to the diction of 'Its great to be a Florida Gator" with "Its great to be a four and eight-er", they are still the most popular program in the Sunshine State. But they have seen attendance fall, particularly among students. A lot of it is students wanting to watch multiple games or be in the comfort of their own homes. But they are not alone. This is a trend nationwide. Of course, winning fixes everything.
2/13/14: UF had a pretty good recruiting class this year. That should not be very surprising, despite the fact that they ended up at 4-8 last season. They lost a few recruits to Florida State, but did manage to flip one of theirs. They did end up with a top 10 class. The other news coming out this week was the financial terms of UF's game with Michigan at Texas Stadium in 2016. The school will pick up $6 million for the game and does not have to buy unsold seats. It will also be the first time that the Gators have had a non-conference game at home since 1991 (though they will be the home team).
2/6/14: Despite Florida resident's individual preference - whether that be UF, FSU, Miami, UCF, or other - it is good for both college football and football within the state of Florida when at least two of the Big Three are strong. That has not been the case for a few years, but UF may be jump starting their rebuilding to compete with FSU sooner rather than later. Gator recruit Will Grier, a QB already enrolled in the school, was named Parade Magazine Player of the Year. Grier will compete with incumbent Jeff Driskel for the starting position, but may end up being redshirted for a year. In any case, it is good news for the Gators to get a quality QB recruit in the door.
1/30/14: The Florida Gators football program is not dead. It may have seemed that was last season when the Gators missed the bowl season for the first time since the early 90's. Not to mention that they fired their offensive coordinator, have lost several players to transfer, have lost their best two cornerbacks to the NFL, and at least two prized recruits have decommitted from their pledges. That being said, The Gators have commitments from four players in the top 100 recruits. The fact that they are Florida and play in the SEC (and just as importantly, the weak SEC East) can still pay dividends.
1/23/14: It has been a bit of a strange trip for head coach Will Muschamp. He is relatively young and at one time was considered one of the top minds of all college coordinators. The University of Texas thought so highly of him that they named him the coach-in-waiting to succeed Mack Brown. However, he took the UF job three years ago and has had a bad season, a great season, and a miserable season. Enough that Gator fans want him out. It is very interesting because had he stayed at Texas, then he would be the head coach and so many other coaching changes would not have happened.
1/16/14: Finally, some good news for UF. It has been a tough few weeks as five players left the program, offensive coordinator Brent Pease was fired, and the Gators not only missed out on playing in a bowl game, but also had to watch in-state rival Florida State hoist the crystal football as the National Champions. So this is nice for the Gainesville crowd. Cornerback Jalen Tabor, the number 15 recruit overall, has flipped his commitment from Arizona to Florida. Tabor may have a chance to play right away, as the top two CBs on the Gators declared early for the NFL draft.
1/9/13: The tough offseason keeps getting tougher for Gator fans and the team as a whole. Word came out this week that the second highest rated running back in the country, Dalvin Cook, decommitted from Florida and will enroll at rival Florida State in the spring. The Gators are depending on young players and a strong recruiting class this spring to rebuild the program. Five players have left the program via transfer since the end of the season. Additionally, the Gators two top cornerbacks are declaring early for the NFL. However, this is the Gators, and they will be back.
1/2/14: For decades the Gators' offense was a threatening sight and seemed to able to score at will. That has not been the case for the last two years as the Gators have posted some of the lowest offensive stats in all of college football. That may change soon enough, though. Florida hired Kurt Roper as offensive coordinator last week. Roper was the architect of the Duke attack, which has been surprisingly effective for the past few years. Roper replaces Brent Pease, who was let go after two seasons. On a positive not, Roper coached Peyton Manning when he was at Ole Miss.
12/26/13: Gators head coach Will Muschamp announced that Coleman Hutzler will return to Florida's coaching staff as the special teams coordinator and director of player personnel. Hutzler had previously been on the staff in 2010-11 assisting the defense. He spent the last two years in New Mexico coaching special teams and outside linebackers. Hutzler worked with current Gators defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin in his previous stint in Gainesville, and Gators fans have to hope that they can keep the defense playing at a high level (and more so that the offense can turn it around next season).
12/19/13: The Gators are still trying to recover from an injury plagued and disappointing season where they won just four games and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1990. It will get a little bit tougher, as five players announced they would be leaving the Gators football program. The five players were mostly subs and redshirts who may be looking for chances to actually play. The good news is that it does free up some scholarships. That may help head coach Will Muschamp bring in some fresh talent to compete in the SEC and with rival Florida State.
12/12/13: University of Florida finished their season two weeks ago with a blowout loss to the rival Florida State Seminoles (who are going to the National Championship Game). The Gators fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease immediately following the end of the season, a move that was widely expected considering the Gators struggles on offense for the past two years under Pease's leadership. Interestingly, Pease was hired away from Boise State, who are now looking for head coach since Chris Peterson left the program to take over at the University of Washington. No word yet on the Gators next offensive coordinator.
12/5/13: UF's season is officially over after getting drummed 37-7 by FSU last Saturday. The Gators finished the season with only four wins on the season and suffered their most embarrassing defeat ever by losing to Georgia Southern at home two weeks ago. The good news is that the Gators will avoid GA Southern next season. The battle of Florida was not a battle at all. UF kept it interesting for about 20 minutes with excellent defense, but simply could not hold of the power FSU offense forever. With two quick TDs at the end of the first half, the Noles essentially put the game away.
11/28/13: If the Gators alums and boosters were mad that they lost at home to Vanderbilt for the first time since 1946, one can only imagine how they feel about losing, at home (no less) to Georgia Southern last Saturday. There are a lot of excuses to be thrown out, such as all the injuries the Gators have sustained. However, Gator fans have never been accused of being patient, and this could easily be the end for head coach Will Muschamp. UF will not make a bowl for the first time since 1990 and only have one game left this season - the rivalry game against Florida State (who is ranked #2 in the country and in line to play for the national championship game).
11/21/13: The University of Florida football team is on the verge of missing a bowl game for the first time since 1990. The Gators are 4-6 after losing to South Carolina 19-14 last Saturday, and have to beat both Georgia Southern and Florida State to be bowl eligible. To be fair, UF has been decimated by injuries and had to start third string freshman QB Skylar Morningwheg against the Gamecocks. The Gators took a 14-6 lead into halftime but could not muster anything more. Gator fans are getting increasingly frustrated with head coach Will Muschamp, but he is likely safe for another year.
11/14/13: There are a lot of unhappy Gator fans around Gainesville these days and that may mean that head coach Will Muschamp's job is on the line. The Gators are in the midst of a terrible season. They lack the talent of past years and have been decimated by injuries. However, the Gator faithful does not tolerate losing to Vandy, particularly at home. The Commodores beat the Gators for the first time in their last 22 attempts past Saturday and for the first time in Gainesville since 1945. Florida is stuck on four wins and has to beat either South Carolina or Florida State (and Georgia Southern) to be bowl eligible.
11/7/13: The Florida - Georgia game was one of the premier games on the NCAA schedule for years. It even earned the nickname "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" for the revelry that took place in Jacksonville, Florida before, during, and following the game. Neither team was ranked in the top 25 so this one lacked the luster of past years. Georgia stormed to a 20-0 lead, but Florida rallied. However, it was not enough, as the Gators lost 23-20. UF is now 4-4 overall and 3-3 in the SEC. The Gators host Vanderbilt the Saturday and will try to salvage their season.
10/31/13: The Florida Gators had a bye week, which gave them some time to recoup after losing at Mizzou and falling out of the top 25 for the first time this season. The next game is a big one as UF heads to Jacksonville for the traditional neutral site game against the rival Georgia Bulldogs, who are also unranked. Florida's biggest problem has been on offense this season. The defense is still very good, but the offense just cannot seem to move the ball and score points against good defenses. This year's game against the Bulldogs may not have the hype as past seasons, but will always be a fierce rivalry and an experience to visit for college football fans.
10/24/13: The Florida Gators have a great history and tradition, but it looks as though they have simply been living off of that for this season. UF does have a very solid defense, in fact they were ranked number one in the SEC going into their first road game at Mizzou. However, Missouri racked up 500 yards of offense in the 36-17 win in Columbia. The Gators loss dropped them out of the top 25 and likely puts them out of contention in the SEC East with two conference losses. The Gators are now 4-3 on the season and 3-2 in conference play. UF has a bye week before heading to Jacksonville to play the annual Cocktail Game against Georgia on November 2.
10/17/13: The difficult 2013 season continues for the Florida Gators. The team lost to Miami in the second week of the season, then lost their starting quarterback for the year, then lost their best defensive player. Last Saturday, the Gators went to Baton Rouge to face the LSU Tigers and try to get some revenge from the blowout there two years ago. But backup QB Tyler Murphy and the offense simply could not get anything going and lost 17-6. The loss will surely knock them down in the polls and makes their quest for the SEC East title a bit tougher. The only consolation is that the Georgia Bulldogs also lost, leaving Mizzou in the top spot for now.
10/10/13: The Gators continue to roll through their SEC schedule; this past week the defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks 30-20 at home. The Razorbacks fell to 0-2 in the SEC in the loss, and is worlds away from where they were just a couple of years ago. UF QB Tyler Murphy threw for 240 yards and three touchdowns in the win. Gators wide receiver Solomon Patton had a big game with six receptions, 124 yards, and two touchdowns. The schedule for UF gets more difficult this week. The Gators travel to Baton Rouge to face the LSU Tigers this Saturday.
10/3/13: It has been 27 years now since the Kentucky Wildcats beat the Florida Gators - the longest consecutive streak in all of college football. That means that no players on either team were alive the last time Kentucky won this rivalry. Florida coasted to a 24-7 win in Lexington behind new starting quarterback Tyler Murphy. Murphy only had 156 yards passing and a touchdown, but it was all they needed. Florida improved to 3-1 on the season with the win. Murphy replaced Jeff Driskel who is out of the season with injury. UF goes back to Gainesville to host Arkansas this Saturday.
9/26/13: The Gators started their SEC schedule with another matchup against the Tennessee Volunteers. This was a great rivalry once, but that was 15-20 years ago, as Tennessee is a mediocre program at this point. UF won the game 31-17, though the Vols were able to cover the 16.5 point spread. The major news out of the game was UF QB Jeff Driskel breaking his leg in the first quarter. Driskel now requires surgery and is out for the season. The Gators will go with Tyler Murphy at QB, who is getting his first college playing time. UF heads to Kentucky this week.
9/19/13: The University of Florida football team had a bye week, which gives them some time to lick their wounds after throwing away a game against the Miami Hurricanes in Miami last week. QB Jeff Driskel has been getting a lot of grief from fans after the loss. Driskel got a bit banged up and the time off will help him heal and get the team back on the same page. The Gators sit at 1-1 and will begin conference play this weekend against the Tennessee Volunteers at home. UF needs to do a better job of holding on to the ball if they want to be competitive in the SEC this season.
9/12/13: The excitement around the UF football program has quickly subsided. The Gators visited Miami and were upset by the Hurricanes. UF out gained the Canes almost two to one and dominated the time of possession. Those advantages were wiped out by a myriad of turnovers, particularly in the red zone. The loss dropped the Gators to an 18th ranking and a long climb back up the rankings. The team starts their SEC schedule this week when they return home to host Tennessee. The Volunteers are 2-0 after paying for and destroying Austin Peay and Western Kentucky.
9/4/13: To no one's surprise, the Florida Gators rolled over Toledo in the opening game of the 2013 season. That brings UF's winning streak of season openers to 24 games. The Gators simply toyed with the Rockets, easily winning 24-6. That being said, the Gators typically schedule lower tier teams for the first week or two. There were plenty of open seats at the season opener, a trend that troubles university administrators. Next week will get more competitive, as the Gators travel to Coral Gables to face the rebuilding Miami Hurricanes. Miami has a strong offense, but still has question marks on defense.
8/29/13: The Gators will open their season this weekend by hosting Toledo. Toledo is obviously not in the same realm as any SEC team, but they could be the winner of the MAC. It is also a departure from the long standing tradition of scheduling tier two teams for the first two weeks. While Florida should have no trouble beating Toledo, they may have more challenges the following week when they head to Miami to play the Hurricanes. Miami is a rebuilding program, and would like nothing more than to beat the Gators and establish themselves again as a respectable program.
8/22/13: UF is going to have a big challenge this year. They were much better than advertised last season, having played their way into a Sugar Bowl birth (where they were embarrassed by Teddy Bridgewater and the Louisville Cardinals). This season, they start out ranked 10th. That is remarkably high in a division with South Carolina and Georgia. The Gators hope to improve on last year's unexpected season, but it will be more difficult this time, as everyone will be waiting for them and ready to give them their best game - and that includes Florida State.
8/15/13: It has been another tough week for Gator football, but at least this one did not include any arrests, or possible homicides or racial rants by former players. This time it actually happened on the field. Wide receiver Andre Debose tore his ACL and will be out for the entire season. Debose was one of the highest ranked players at his position when he came out of high school. He has never lived up to his potential, but was expected to be a major contributor this season. His absence will mean that someone else must step up and give QB Jeff Driskel a target to throw to.
8/8/13: It has been a tough summer in Gainesville. It appears that former coach Urban Meyer (or his staff at Ohio State) tipped off the NCAA on possible minor violations; one former player is facing murder charges, and another made a hateful racial remark at a concert - the video of which has him on personal leave from his pro team. To make matters worse, recruiting has been average, but not great. The Gators still have talent on the roster, but they will need a big year to make everyone forget about all the problems this summer.
8/1/13: The Gators reached into the belly of the beast to grab a recruit - albeit for the 2016 recruiting class. Tre Jackson, the son of former Gators' star Jack Jackson, committed to UF. It is significant to get a legacy signing - even if it is two and a half years away. What is more intriguing is that Jackson attends Laboratory University High School, which is a high school founded by LSU and sits on the LSU campus. Perhaps it was not a good idea to commit to one of LSU's biggest rivals when there are still three more more seasons to play in Baton Rouge.
7/18/13: Gators head coach Will Muschamp finally showed some personality (aside from screaming profanities and spitting on the sideline). When asked about Ohio State tipping off the NCAA about a possible rules violation, Muschamp thanked the Buckeyes for their assistance, and added that the school certainly knows about NCAA rules - a clear shot at the tattoo scandal a few years ago that led to their probation and Jim Tressell's dismissal. While Ohio State is not an SEC team, their coach, Urban Meyer, previously coached Florida, and there are still a lot of Gator fans mad at him for leaving.
1/24/13: The UF football program may be taking a big hit this offseason, as several underclassmen have declared for the NFL draft and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is leaving the program to take the same position with the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks position came open when defensive coordinator Gus Bradley accepted the head coaching position with the Jacksonville Jaguars. So basically it was a trade. The Gators defense was much better than expected, and led the team to the Sugar Bowl, where they were exposed by the Louisville Cardinals - ironically led by former UF DC Charlie Strong.
1/10/13: There were more than a few respected 'experts' who picked the FSU Seminoles to fall to the Northern Illinois Huskies in the Orange Bowl. That did not happen. But virtually no one expected the No. 22 Louisville Cardinals from the Big East to upset No. 4 Florida. That did just happen. UF seemed lethargic and uninterested in the game, and quickly fell behind. The Gators tried to throw in some trick plays, but the Louisville defense was strong enough to hold on to the lead. Gators coach Will Muschamp said after the game that the team was outplayed and out-coached.
12/27/12: Like rival FSU, the Gators have several talented juniors who may declare for the NFL draft early. Sharrif Floyd, among the top defensive tackles in college football, could be a first round draft pick, while safety Matt Elam is a first team All American and will certainly get the interest of a few pro teams. Meanwhile, the rest of the team is preparing to face the Louisville Cardinals in the Sugar Bowl on January 2, 2013. The Gators are heavy favorites, and no one want a repeat of the Florida-Cincinnati thrashing from a few years ago.
12/20/12: Florida may be making preparations to play Louisville in the Sugar Bowl on January 2nd, but that is not stopping Will Muschamp and company from building for the future. The Gators signed three junior college transfers, who will presumably be with the team next season. Offensive linemen Tyler Moore (a former starter at Nebraska) and Trenton Brown signed, as did defensive lineman Darious Cummings. The three are expected to enroll in classes in January and be available for service in the 2013 season. Getting big men in the trenches is vital in the SEC, and it looks like the Gators have found a few monsters.
12/13/12: The Florida Gators have stopped complaining about not having a shot at the BCS Championship and are directing their efforts at preparing for the Sugar Bowl. The number three ranked Gators will play the twenty-first ranked Louisville Cardinals on January 2 at the Superdome in New Orleans.The Gators are coming off of an unexpected 11-1 season with the only loss coming at the hands of the Georgia Bulldogs. UF is heavily favored in the match up, and many fear this could be the same type of Sugar Bowl as a few years ago when Florida routed Big East Champion Cincinnati.
12/6/12: Due to the inexplicable unfairness of the BCS standings, the Florida Gators are headed back to the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. The Gators finished second in the SEC East, behind Georgia. Georgia took Alabama to the final play in the SEC Championship Game, before falling 32-28. But Georgia's second loss counts in the computer rankings (even though Georgia beat Florida earlier in the year), so the Bulldogs got shut out of a BCS game and instead will go to the Capital One Bowl in Orlando. Florida will face Louisville on January 2 in the Sugar Bowl.
11/29/12: For all the good tidings beating archrival Florida State brings, UF fans are cringing that they will be left out of the National Championship. The Gators have one loss and have played one of the toughest schedules in the country. But that one loss was to Georgia, who sits one spot ahead of UF in the BCS rankings. Georgia and Alabama will play in the SEC Championship Game this Saturday, and the winner will likely face Notre Dame for the BCS Championship. If NCAA football had a playoff, then UF would likely qualify, but as it is, they may be forced into the Sugar or Capital One Bowls.
11/22/12: The computers love the Gators, primarily because of their strength of schedule and wins over South Carolina, Texas A&M, and LSU. UF has had two cupcake games in the past two weeks, and barely beat University of Louisiana-Lafayette at home. But now comes the big final exam, as the No. 4 Gators head to Tallahassee to face arch-rival No. 10 Florida State. A win could give them an outside shot at making the BCS Championship Game. A loss shows they are overrated, and probably earns a ticket to the Capital One Bowl. UF will have to figure out some offense if they are going to be in this game.
11/15/12: Maybe SEC teams are smarter than the rest of the NCAA. UF rival FSU was decimated in the press for starting the year against two 1-AA teams (even though one game was a last minute scheduling adjustment after West Virginia pulled out). But UF just hosted University of Louisiana-Lafayette and now hosts Jacksonville State. The Gators also hosted Bowling Green in their opener. Perhaps since it is mid/late season, no one cares, but the effect is still the same. In any case, this is merely a warm-up game before UF travels to Tallahassee to face FSU in the final regular season game of the year.
The Florida Gators play Division I college football for the University of Florida. The Gators play in the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference. The 2011 season will be Will Muschamp's first as head coach of the Gators. Florida plays its home games at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, FL.
