Writer: No One Has A Feel For Florida This Year

When it comes to the 2011 Florida Gators, no one seems to know what to expect from them.  That includes the national media and preseason prognosticators.  And that includes Pat Dooley of The Gainesville Sun, too:

“… I remember when no preseason magazine would consider not having Florrda in its top 25.  Several have this summer.  It’s another example that people just don’t k now what to expect from Will Muschamp’s first year.  When was the last time we went to Hoover for SEC Media Days and had to think really hard about whether or not to put any Gators on the All-SEC team?  You know there will be some on the postseason team, but in the preseason we don’t really have a feel for who they will be.  This is the Year of the Unknown at UF.”

The Gator defense has plenty of talent, even without star corner Janoris Jenkins (who was dismissed from the team this spring).  If Charlie Weis can maximize the under-developed or under-utilized talent he inherits on offense, the Gators could surprise. 

But that gets back to Dooley’s point — When was the last time a Florida team had to surprise anyone?
