    Heggie played 52 of 71 offensive snaps Saturday and Mullen said in today's presser that he graded "champion" (one of three OLs). He apparently injured his hand a few weeks ago and has a cast on the left hand. He's not been named the starter yet, but he's about to unseat Fred - possibly by the UGA game.

    Here's one of his plays where he destroys an LSU defender:

        Johnson was practically the reason for the INT, because he was tossed aside almost immediately by his assignment, who ended up pounding FF chest right as he was making his throw.

          Yep, and Mullen pretty much said as much in the press conference. Says Franks was throwing it away due to lack of time, but the hit caused the short throw. Franks got hit A LOT.

          Heggie is flat out a BEAST. Johnson, not so much. Time for him to sit.

          With 52 snaps there's a reason the OL play was much improved.

            That was a man’s block right there.

              It's hilarious. He destroys that guy. No way Fred can pull....and block like that!

                That was a huge cast. It was the kind that started just below his elbow and then flared out to a bell at his hand.

                OL (and DL) use their fingers/hands all the time. That cast was a real disadvantage out there but he still played well.

                It felt like he played most of the second half.

                Happy for his success.

                Alex.

                  Every snap that Heggie is at RG is one less snap that FJ is there. Let's try and get Fred's # of snaps to zero.

                    Holy carp! Do you guys believe this? We had 72 freakin offensive plays!!!!


                    Oh, and good on Heggie. I saw the cast and was impressed with what he was doing. I have no problem with him replacing Fred.


                    Related question - I see where I can read the entire roster, but is there somewhere that indicates starters and such? Reason I ask, is I'm not aware of seeing McCoy in a long time, nor hearing his name. I know some on here were looking for him to take a spot on the bench as well.

                      McCoy is injured. Not sure what the injury is, the team isn't reporting it...but he reported it on twitter. It appears he's out. Earlier in the year the depth chart had he and Villano as "or" in the 2nd team spot. Now it's just Villano's name.

                        Baffling.... Fred's been here for about 8 years it seems and yet looks as lost as the day he arrived.

                            He is a difference maker

                            Now if we can just get Ivy to take his head out his @$$ and pay attention, we may have something here.

                                Most offensive lineman relish the opportunity to get downfield and shove a DB into the first row of seats...or at least bury an undersized LBer into one of the painted on emblems on the field....

                                  He only blocked like 2-3 guys before he ran into the rb and then went downfield and blocked 2-3 more.

                                    Could we start with at least stopping with all the illegal procedures? He KNOWS the fking count but still can’t manage to wait for the snap. :facepalm:

                                    He plays GUARD, as in next to the dude that snaps the ball. I played guard back when if there was any movement even tilting the ball they called it. It ain't rocket science. FOCUS

                                      Thats an interesting spin. First he held a linebacker (pretty obvious w that left arm extension as the LB broke free and hit Peeeeeerine, who broke the tackle regardless, then piled into a few of the people who actually made the tackle as they were taking Peeerine to the ground.

                                      Its a hard thing to do, to teach kids not to just chase the block they missed but it isnthe kind of thing you should learn in middle school.

                                      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.

                                      The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
