Per Cus's recommendation, here is the new shlinks thread. I begin with a hype video. Sure to titillate some and annoy others. Courtesy of social media via the Miami Herald.

Most people are optimistic in August. I couch my optimism with deep-seeded cynicism and bitterness all the time.

RB depth is a good problem to have.

10 Early Standouts & Observations with newcomers.
https://247sports.com/college/florida/C ... 120475737/
10. TE Lucas Krull - Very rusty, but they like his frame.
9. RE Andrew Chatfield - getting reps at the crowded Buck position, but don't be surprised if he gets playing time in ST, back-up time.
8. S Amari Burney - Big, physical guy who will play nickel and safety. Has looked good so far.
7. OL Chris Bleich - He is a mauler and should get playing time as the OL has been underwhelming at times.
6. RB Dameon Pierce - Strong guy w/ low center gravity, could end up the main competition for Scarlett.
5. CB Trey Dean - Key back-up and has the frame the coaches will want to develop into a starter.
4. LB David Reese - The freshman runs like a DB and should get time in the rotation.
3. TE Kyle Pitts - This could be the true competition for Lewis as he's looked legit and could be a major mismatch in coverage.
2. WR Trevon Grimes - Has really progressed and could see many red zone snaps. Learned a lot from the next and top guy on the list.
1. WR Van Jefferson - I'm just going to post the entire write-up as it'll make you salivate if you have any optimism left in your orange & blue heart.
It's clear at this point that after a terrific spring and a good start to fall camp Jefferson is a definite starter for Florida. In all probability he's the team's No. 1 receiver this fall. He's just so fluid in his routes and has such soft hands. He's one of the most naturally gifted receivers we've seen at Florida in a few years. He reminds us to some degree of Demarcus Robinson, though he seems much more polished and a bit more smooth. He'll play a massive role for the Gators this fall.

20 Bold Predictions for the SEC in 2018.
https://247sports.com/ContentGallery/SE ... 120436179/
Here are a few from the article.
20. Bama will lead the conference in scoring.
19. Kentucky's Snell will lead SEC in rushing.
16. Florida has QB issues throughout.
This one isn't very bold, I know. Feleipe Franks isn't the quarterback the Gators want him to be just yet and reports indicate Kyle Trask has largely out-performed Florida's incumbent starter during the early stages of fall practice. Freshman Emory Jones is a distant third, but there will be pressure to play the four-star if September turns ugly at the position. We've heard throughout the offseason about Dan Mullen's abilities as a quarterback whisperer and we think he'll be in a tough spot throughout in terms of sticking with a hot hand under center. Quarterback play will be the primary issue keeping the Gators away from being a threat in the East.
Ah, fuck you.
15. Georgia will lock up the East by Nov. 10th.
10. Tennessee will upset a Top 25 team. Either WVU, or Florida (if they are there by then). Okay.
6. Georgia will lose a road game, but will have no problems beating Florida, Tennessee or Auburn. But could drop one to USC, Mizzou or LSU away. Again, fuck you, dude.

Best and worst case scenarios for Gators in 2018.
https://www.gatorcountry.com/feature/fl ... s-in-2018/
Best: We lose to UGA, but go 10-2 and snag a New Year's Six bowl game.
Worst: Hoo boy. Here we go. They lose to Tennessee, Mississippi State and LSU. They also lose to Georgia, FSU and South Carolina. And they limp into post-season at 6-6...but it could also be worse, because they might lose to Drew Lock and Mizzou.

I'll thank you to stop promoting such axioms as "They haven't seen us play" as I have numerous sources who say Mullen sucks at recruiting because he's not recruiting like Kirby Smart.
