Snell’s Slant: Gators trending upward, look out for Martez Ivey and Antonio Riles

By Shannon Snell – OnlyGators.com Featured Columnist

Eight months. It’s been eight long months since Ohio State hoisted the first College Football Playoff trophy, becoming the first team to go through multiple opponents to win the title. But put aside Urban Meyer’s success outside Gainesville, both last year and in his dominant win over Virginia Tech.

Now, on the heels of Florida’s big Week 1 win over New Mexico State (big in point total, not prominence), this should be a time when Gators fans rejoice. You may think I’m crazy for suggesting that or even roll your eyes and laugh at the assumption that Florida can be something better than mediocre this year, especially after being beat down as one of the worst teams in college football as of late.

Florida Gators practice update: Split squad day one leaves plenty to be desired from offense

It would be unfair to expect too much from the Florida Gators on their first day of 2015 fall practice, but head coach Jim McElwain had no problem letting it be known that there are some important areas in which the team needs to improve immediately with so few days to go until the start of the season.

Primarily, McElwain was displeased with how Florida’s quarterbacks and wide receivers looked while running routes on air (without defenders).

“It wasn’t great by any stretch of the imagination,” he said of the chemistry between the two units. “Pitching and catching is the one thing we got to consistently get better at. I think it will. I know it will. But at the same time, that’s something that, especially at those positions, I’m probably a little more critical.
