Gators Look Toward Next Year
Posted By Taylor Gaines On October 30, 2013 @ 1:50 PM In Florida News,Insider - Gators,NCAA | No Comments
When Will Muschamp announced that Kelvin Taylor would, in fact, start at running back on Saturday against Georgia, I begin to think about how quickly this Gators season turned on its head.
Taylor was a guy who was nearly red-shirted before the season, and now he’s starting in the eighth game of the year. Nobody planned for it to go this way. But I believe now, with Taylor the starter, the Gators have truly begun to look toward next season.
Sure, he’s earned it, with 172 yards on 28 carries this season, a 6.1 yards-per-carry average. The true freshman has been one of the few bright spots to a dark, injury-riddled season.
But inserting Taylor in the starting lineup represents a shift toward developing future prospects for Florida.
It will be fun to watch the young guys feel their way into the game as the season winds down, but I wouldn’t expect too much success.
What does everybody else think?
