Gators Cruise in opener 73-14 over Toledo GAINESVILLE - The My Dick era got underway in Gainesville today to the tune of a 69-point victory over the hapless Toledo Rockets. Things got started early for the Gators when Quarterback Jeff Driskel capped off the opening drive with a 22-yard touchdown run off an option keeper. Later in the quarter Mack Brown took a draw play 36-yards for the Gators second score on the day. Near the end of the first half Brown found the endzone again, this time from 4 yards out. Toledo answered with a 26-yard touchdown toss to cut the score to 21-7. It looked as if Toledo might have captured momentum when UF’s ensuing drive into Rocket territory was suddenly brought to an abrupt halt as Driskel threw his second interception on the day. However, any hopes Toledo had of a comeback were quickly dashed when Valedz Showers ended the half for the Gators with a pick-six and then Quinton Dunbar took the 2nd half kickoff 96 yards to put the Gators up 4 scores. The rest of the second half was much of the same as Florida was scoring on both Offense and Defense. Most of the 4th quarter was played by the Gator second string O and D, but it didn’t seem to slow them down. On the day Driskel quietly went 8-18 passing for 179 yards and a touchdown, but he also rushed for 64 yards and 2 scores. Senior Mack Brown added 154 yards and 3 scores on the ground. After the game, Coach Dick stated "I'm proud of how we played, but that team might have trouble making the FCS Playoffs. The real season starts next week with our conference opener." On the year the Gators move to 1-0, while Toledo drops to 0-1. Next up for Florida is a conference showdown with Mississippi St. PS I don’t know if there’s a scoring cap, but I really didn’t intend to run it up. I pretty much kept it on the ground in the 4th and had my entire second string subbed in.
