    He was running behind a Jimmy Fuller line, what more could you ask for?

    I can say that I enjoyed the game but the mistakes were huge on Florida's part. Against a good team those kind of mistakes will cost you a game.

Much credit to the Hurricane coaching staff - especially Manny Diaz and Brian Enos. Their freshman QB Darren Williams did not look at all like a freshman starting his first game. In fact, an argument could easily be made that he demonstrated more poise than 3rd year QB Feleipe Franks.

    As for Florida - they won and are 1-0. That's the best thing I can say about them. They persevered through 4 turnovers which put the defense on the field for 13 minutes more than the Miami defense in triple digit heat index conditions. That's almost a whole quarter!

    Florida's offense and defense both made mistakes --- but those 4 turnovers had the biggest impact on the outcome of the game.

    I also feel the play calling was a bit suspect at times. Why didn't we go back to Toney in the game? Why not stretch the field with all the talent we have in our WR group? Puzzling. I can only surmise that Coach Mullen was trying to work around the mental shortcomings of Franks.

    Can't help but feel the 10 sacks last night wouldn't have happened if not for the transfer LB Jonathan Greenard #58. He was simply amazing.

    Ultimately what happens the rest of the season with this team depends on one person - Feleipe Franks. And to some degree Coach Mullen for how he handles that position.

    Franks has a ton of physical ability - but where he falls short is between the ears. I wonder if he'll ever be the kind of QB that could take his team to the playoffs. Based on what I saw last night - clearly the answer is no.

    Gritty season opener with an in state rival at a neutral site in triple digit heat index night --- and we got the win.

    It wasn't the domination win I was hoping for but happy to start the season off 1-0.

    Go Gators!
    Undisciplined...poor tackling...suspect QB play...and suspect play calling. Yes, you are 1-0, but UF has a long way to go to challenge in the SEC East. Good luck...beat UGA!!

    Miami is not good and will struggle to be a .500 team this year, even in a terrible ACC Coastal Division. There just isn’t much talent there. With that said, they played about as well as they could have minus the botched punt.

    Florida definitely had more talent and that was the difference in the game. However, they have no chance in the East this year. They will definitely beat some teams and will probably win at least one of the games against Auburn, LSU and UGA but will most assuredly drop a game to someone they shouldn’t, like UT or Missouri. They are just way too undisciplined and Franks is way too inconsistent. The penalties were not just a product of first game of the year against a rival.

    Apparently, Miami fans were quite unhappy after the game - assaulted the UF band director!

    UM - continually reinforcing the stereotype.

    Reminds me of 1992 when we were accosted by UM fans after the NC game for no reason. Thug U!

    I know Dan Enos is considered a QB guru, but I was not impressed with his debut as OC.

    A very important win for Florida. The old saying applies... " a W is a W". They have a lot to improve on... and I suspect they will improve.

    We looked everywhere for a few Miami fans after the game, but they either went home or took off their colors.

    I watched the game.

    Yes, it was kinda ugly. But through the years, I have to keep reminding myself that 1st games are often poor indicators.

    I would think these 2 teams will improve moving forward.
