We’re back with Florida Football Friday Final, where OnlyGators.com takes a last look at the Florida Gators as they prepare for their first road contest under new head coach Jim McElwain.

After a sub-standard performance in a win over East Carolina, Florida Gators head coach Jim McElwain met with the media on Monday and Wednesday to preview the team’s upcoming road contest against the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Lexington, Kentucky.
McElwain provided injury and depth chart updates but also addressed some of what the Gators have done well, particularly with young players that have stepped up over the last two weeks.
Though things will undoubtedly continue change for the Florida Gators throughout the 2015 season, especially with players coming back from injury, the team released its second depth chart of the season ahead of Saturday’s game against the East Carolina Pirates
The contest will be head coach Jim McElwain‘s second with the Gators, and it will all go down inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at 7:00 p.m. and air live on the ESPN2.
Here is Florida’s second official depth chart release.
It did not take more than a couple series on Saturday in Gainesville, Florida, to make it obvious that the Florida Gators (1-0) would run roughshod over the New Mexico State Aggies (0-1) in the teams’ season opener at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
The Gators had little issue scoring in the contest, like they did against Eastern Michigan and Eastern Kentucky a year ago, but Florida’s offense was being New Mexico State through more than pure athleticism but rather scheme, confidence and efficiency. That put a big smile on the face of new head coach Jim McElwain, who met with the media after the game to offer some praise and criticism for his squad following its first game of the 2015 campaign.
