With the brief spring practice season and the annual intrasquad scrimmage in the rear-view mirror, the Gators will now head their separate ways this summer.
In the wake of another disappointing, but all too familiar, John Brantley performance on Saturday — 4-of-14 passing, 45 yards, no touchdowns; the only thing missing was an interception — people are already looking to stir up a quarterback controversy in Gainesville.
After a spring full of closed practices, Saturday’s Orange and Blue Debut was slated to be the Gators’ first chance to show how far they progressed under coach Will Muschamp.

After helping lead Florida back to the Elite Eight, Larry Shyatt is returning to his former home.
Jeff Demps isn’t practicing with the football team this spring, but he is by no means out of the running for a starting spot in Florida’s backfield.
I hope Florida fans enjoyed the Gators’ low-post dominance Saturday more than UF’s players and coaches seemingly did, because they won’t be seeing much of it next year.
