2011 Florida Gator Football Outlook

Into 2010 it didn't look good for gator football. Or sure they won there bowl game against Penn State 37-24 in the Outback Bowl. But 2010 was even like that at all. finishing a disappointing 8-5. They were blow out by Bama for the second straight by a combine score of 63-19. Also the gators lost 3 games at home last year losing to LSU (33-29), Miss. State (10-7) and South Carolina. With South Carolina paying the gators back from a 56-6 loss in 2008 in Gainesville, by beating Florida 36-14 last year. Then they gators lost to there arch rival Florida State in Tallahassee 31-7 ending there dominate 6 year run over Florida State. And with that being said the gators were still one win away from making a third straight SEC Title Game but did not show up against South Carolina in Gainesville on primetime tv and got beat down 36-14. Now the gators look to bounce right back into the thick of things with a new coaching staff with the Urban Meyer stepping down and Will Muschamp coming to Gainesville and starting a new offense with Charlie Weis as the offensive cooridnator. The gator offense comes into season having under performed in 2010 finishing a disappointing by Florida standards 10th in total offense. They come into the 2011 season not only needing a leader at the quarterback position, but they will most definatley have find good running backs to take a lot of pressure on Brantley and some go guys at receiver and tight end as well. The gators defense will need to step more in 2011 although they finished 2nd in total defense in the SEC the gators didn't stand up when the offense really need them to. They would give up big plays and long drive in there five losses and Georgia game that the gators won in overtime. But they were pushed around physically in those five losses as well. But the defense should be more experienced a looking to get better with a lot of young talent coming back with a year under there belt like sophomores Ronald Powell and Shariff Floyd and junior linebacker Jon Bostic and senior defensive end William Green which has been a disappointment so far. Also the gators must replace strong safety Ahmad Black who made plenty of plays for the gators. Sophomore Matt Elam will be looking to fill that role as he got in on nickel and dime packages last season. At the corner position Janoris Jenkins returns for his senior season at one corner position. The other corner position is wide open as you have (Sr) Moses Jenkins, (rSo) Jeremy Brown and (So) Cody Riggs although with high touted recruits in the 2011 freshmen class led by Marcus Roberson, Louchiez Purifoy, De' Ante Saunders and other high touted freshmen at other positions for this gator defense. So they gators very ready to see what kind have monster the will create with this new coaching staff because even though Ron Zook got fired he did leave Urban Meyer some players that won a national title in 2006.
