Snell’s Slant: Jim McElwain needs to take a hard look at the Florida Gators offense

By Shannon Snell – OnlyGators.com Featured Columnist

Just two weeks ago, I had no doubt in my mind that the Florida Gators would handily beat both Vanderbilt and Florida Atlantic. But I had no clue that either game would have been so close or so ugly to watch. I knew at some point during this football season that Florida would eventually struggle.

I mean, this is Jim McElwain first year as a head coach in the SEC, and he inherited a program that was short on explosive playmakers and leadership. That’s recipe for disaster. The thing is … the Gators started the season white hot behind the arm of unknown quarterback Will Grier and a bunch of young inexperienced guys in the skilled positions. For all it’s worth, everyone knew the defense – led by Jonathan Bullard and Vernon Hargreaves III – would be good, but it’s exceeded expectations.

But then something happened. Grier was suspended, injuries have started piling up, and this team doesn’t resemble anything near what I it was a month ago.

Florida Friday Final: Morrison, Davis help Gators prepare for defensive showdown with Vanderbilt

We’re back with Florida Football Friday Final, where OnlyGators.com takes a last look at the No. 10 Florida Gators as they prepare an important showdown against the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday at 12 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida.

Florida (7-1, 5-1 SEC) and Vanderbilt (3-5, 1-3 SEC) will do battle in a game that could decide the SEC East for the Gators or prove that the hosts are not yet where they need to be either within the division or college football as a whle

Updates: Prep good but Florida Gators offense must improve against tough Vandy defense

No. 10 Florida Gators football (7-1, 5-1 SEC) is not taking the SEC East rival Vanderbilt Commodores (3-5, 1-3 SEC) lightly while preparing for a pivotal showdown at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday at 12 p.m. With a victory over Vanderbilt, Florida would clinch the division title for the first time since 2009 and advance to the SEC Championship Game, where it would hope to win a league crown for the first time since 2008.

Head coach Jim McElwain met with the media Wednesday to provide some updates on his team through the week’s midway point. Unlike last week (you know, when UF wound up routing Georgia 27-3), he was pleased with the Gators’ preparation for the Commodores and provided some positive injury updates ahead of the division showdown.

Six quick hits: LSU, Fournette run over Gators 35-28; Florida still in control of own SEC destiny

The No. 8 Florida Gators (6-1, 4-1 SEC) faced their toughest test of the season Saturday night at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Not only did the No. 6 LSU Tigers (6-0, 4-0 SEC) pull out a hard-fought 35-28 win, it became the only remaining undefeated team in the Southeastern Conference and left Florida with plenty of questions to answer as it enters the latter half of the 2015 campaign.

“That was a heck of a college football game. It was a lot of fun to be a part of. It was a great crowd. Two really good football teams. And that team that came up on the strong end of it, they deserved to win. They took it to us,” UF head coach Jim McElwain said after the game. “But I’m going to tell you what, I’m really proud of our football team. This Gator football team is a good football team, too, don’t forget. They handled themselves in a great way.”

Before that goes down though, let OnlyGators.com breaks down seven of the most important takeaways from the Gators’ first loss under McElwain.
