GAINESVILLE -- Florida has won 22 in a row over Vanderbilt, but players and coaches insist they are not overlooking the Commodores.
“They’ve got a lot of kids that are recruited highly by all SEC schools,” offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. “You see, these guys, they play with a ton of effort.”
James Franklin, Vandy’s third-year coach, has jump-started a dormant program into a legitimate conference foe. Vandy won nine games in 2012 and upset Georgia at home this season.
• Star defensive tackle Dominique Easley, sidelined with an ACL injury, reportedly withdrew from the school to rehab his knee and focus on April’s NFL Draft. Easley signed with agent Tom Santanello of Elevate Football in Boca Raton. A UF spokesperson refused comment.
