Florida Gators fans can’t be happy with the way their team played last year. It’s not every year that the Gators have a losing record, or miss out on a bowl, but last season was that year. The team will be looking to get back on track in the 2014-15 college football season.
Read on to see five bold predictions for Florida in 2014.
The showdown, like always, will be played in the final game of the regular season. The Gators stood no chance against the Seminoles last season, but things will be different this time around. Florida State will still win, but Florida will play its rival very tough.
Florida will go from four wins to 10 wins in just one season. Considering the Gators have a very tough schedule, that is saying a lot. They will take on Alabama, LSU, Missouri, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida State and others. Florida actually brings back its QB, though, which will go a long ways all season long.
Jeff Driskel has had his fair share of ups and downs in Gainesville, but this will be the season that he finally puts it all together. Having a different offensive coordinator could help. It better for the sake of Will Muschamp’s job. Driskel probably won’t be the most dominant QB in the nation, but he will lead Florida on important drives and also win the big games for the team.
The Gators are going to have to upset someone big if they are actually going to win 10 games. I am going to say they will lose to Alabama and Florida State, and beat everyone else. That would be quite the achievement for a team that lost eight games last season. It was only two seasons ago when Florida won 11 games, though.
I’m going with the home run here and saying that Florida will finish in the top 10. Okay, I guess the actual home run would be winning the championship, but that probably isn't going to happen. If Florida does win 10 games, and if Driskel becomes a star, there is no doubt that this team will finish in the top 10.
