The SEC Football Media Days started Monday with Florida. Coach Dan Mullen is entering his fourth year as the head coach of the Gators. He lost tight end Kyle Pitts and wide receiver Kadarius Toney to the first round of the NFL Draft, and his starting quarterback, Kyle Trask, in the second round.
Mullen says his team has enough depth among receivers to make up for the lost production. As for the defense…
Senior defensive lineman Zachary Carter looks forward to a more normal season this year, saying last year was tough for everybody.
Despite going 8-4 last year, 8-2 in the SEC, the Gators lost to Alabama in the SEC Championship game and were crushed by Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, dropping them to 13th in the final AP poll. Senior linebacker Ventrell Miller says because of how last season ended, they have a chip on their shoulder.
Mullen still has high expectations.
The Gators open at home against Florida Atlantic September 4th. The Gators’ first conference game is two weeks later at home against Alabama. Florida visits Mizzou November 20th.
