Florida 2021 Season Preview

Florida begins the year as the No. 13 ranked team in the country but there are a lot of questions surround the Gators after finishing 8-4 a year ago and losing multiple key starters. Premier among those new starters is Emory Jones, who takes over under center for record-setting quarterback Kyle Trask, who is now in the NFL. Jones has waited three years for his shot and will finally get it.

“It has been hard, but it’s all been for a reason,” Jones said. “That’s what I’ve realized over the past years. I have been playing a little bit, so that keeps me going. I’ve just been watching the guys in front of me do their best and watching how they move and how they operate and it’s definitely just helping me.”

Unlike Trask, Jones is a dual-threat and has been used on occasion by Florida as a change of pace QB.

“I think he understands it,” Mullen said Monday. “You look at his playing time and experience throughout the years. Everybody says this will be his first time playing the first play of the game, but to say he hasn’t played in a lot of big moments in a lot of different games, big difference.”

Florida will also have to find some new playmakers, with tight end Kyle Pitts and receiver Kadarius Toney both becoming first-round picks.

The Gators open the season in state against Florida Atlantic and South Florida. They also close out the season

“I love playing the in-state (teams),” Florida coach Dan Mullen said. “People love national matchups and national matchups are fantastic. … On a local stage, it is great when you see guys who played against each other or together in high school on the same field in The Swamp. … Individually, throughout the team, there are going to be some bragging rights for guys who they’ve played with or against in the past.”
