        Since he had a solid game against Virginia, I figured I'd put this in here.

        White working toward a starting job on O-line in 2020

        A. White figures to play a major role on next year's offensive line. He can certainly push for a starting spot at guard, where he already looks like one of Florida's most athletic blockers pulling into space.

        B. Florida's line seemed at its best when White was in with the starting lineup in Monday night's Capital One Orange Bowl win over Virgina.

        C. "It was good to compete for a job, but it wasn't just me," White said humbly after the Orange Bowl. "It was all the other freshmen that are also trying to work themselves into starting roles."

        The true freshman has a point. The Gators had nine first- and second-year players working on the O-line in bowl practices, and they'll add one or two more for spring ball and likely one more for the fall.

          Gonna miss this for a while. RIP Ed. 11-2 sure is a great season. In all honesty, I'd feel better about if I felt that we were on the cusp of that next step. Right now, I feel like we've peaked and hats off to Mullen. He did that in short order. All in all, it is a great season and it is great to be a Florida Gator!

          Thanks for all you do C2. Try to stick around during the offseason. Happy New Year to you and all Gators!

            The next step is the toughest of all.

                You're right, it is. Maybe CDM can't take that step, but maybe he can.

                I think he can but that is a TOTAL team effort from the VERY top down.

                  Just think about where Saban and Alabama wound up, what #13? LSU rose to the top this year, but not so next year. We need to beat UGa. Who else is there but us?

                    The timing is setting up for Mullen to take the next step. Now is the time.

                      This is on SDS today, they gave our players rings for the Orange Bowl (note: we didn't give players rings for the 2009 Sugar Bowl):

                          Any sign of an East championship trophy?

                          did we write Orange bowl champions on the stadium?

                            We appear to be getting comfortable as a tier two program.

                            Can’t wait to see the Orange Bowl victory painted on the walls in the swamp next to the Birmingham Bowl .........ugh

                              1. I’m so ferking tired of the slanted F.

                              2. I’m so tire of seeing @cover2 getting 70+ Likes for his 2 cents.

                                that italic font sheet needs to die a slow painful and miserable death. It's freaking awful. Our end zones disgust me.

                                  Total agree. But how do you feel about Cover’s 70+ likes? Makes you sick to your stomach too, right?

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
