GatorNation links: At SEC media days

Michael DiRocco writes: Mike Gillislee has never started a game, rushed for 100 yards in a game, or carried the ball more than 59 times in a season. But the senior running back is convinced he’s about to turn in one of the greatest seasons by a running back in Florida football history.

DiRocco writes: Florida coach Will Muschamp is able to do something that a lot of college football coaches can't -- laugh at himself. Muschamp did a lot of that when he saw the video that College Station, Texas, mayor Nancy Berry did in response to a comment Muschamp made about playing at Texas A&M.

DiRocco writes: Muschamp maintains his belief that buck linebacker Ronald Powell will get on the field in 2012 despite suffering a torn ACL during the Gators’ spring game.

Video: Muschamp talks with Mark Schlabach about having one of the strongest defenses in the league, but knowing Florida must rely on offense to carry the load this year.

Chris Low writes: Muschamp made it clear Wednesday that he's a fan of keeping the annual Florida-Georgia clash in Jacksonville every year.

DiRocco writes: The decision of Florida tight end A.C. Leonard to transfer will hurt. Redshirt junior Jordan Reed is the only tight end remaining on the roster who has caught a pass in college.
