GatorNation links: Florida media day

Florida coach Will Muschamp and his players spoke to the media on Thursday, and GatorNation was there.

Michael DiRocco writes: The Gators say they are still haunted by a winless October in 2011, but they're now using it as motivation for 2012.

Derek Tyson writes: Florida coach Will Muschamp says he’ll never promise playing time to high school prospects, only opportunity.

DiRocco’s notebook: UF kick returner Andre Debose has the school record for kickoffs returned for touchdowns, so he’s none too happy about the new kickoff rules.

Tyson writesInsider: Thanks to a surge of verbal commitments, the Florida Gators have moved into the No. 2 spot in the ESPN class rankings.
