Trip Thurman plays through shoulder injury to bolster Gators' offensive line

GAINESVILLE — Florida offensive lineman Trip Thurman had a choice to make, even if it really was no choice at all.

Senior Day never gets old for Gators tight end Jake McGee

GAINESVILLE — Jake McGee is not much of a crier, and Senior Day should be no different for the Florida Gators' tight end.

"If I do, you guys can get on me a little bit," he said.

GAINESVILLE — Out in Big Sky country, the time Montana State University took on Emmitt Smith and the Florida Gators still reverberates.

UF free safety Marcus Maye may be Gators' most versatile playmaker

GAINESVILLE — Marcus Maye lines up about 15 yards away from the line of scrimmage, but a big play always is within reach.
