    Gator Tales #242: CB Kaiir Elam and Football Roundtable

    While most of the SEC was sidelined over the weekend, Kyle Trask and the Gators took center stage on Saturday night against Arkansas and Feleipe Franks, and once the dust settled in The Swamp, the Gators rolled 63-35 and vaulted Trask into the upper echelon of the Heisman race.

    On today’s show, host Adam Schick gets to know sophomore cornerback Kaiir Elam and finds out what it’s like going up against what is possibly the nation’s best offense every day in practice (1:52).

    Then, Adam welcomes FloridaGators.com senior writers Scott Carter and Chris Harry for a roundtable discussion about Trask’s rising star, the state of the Gator defense, the impending start of Florida basketball and history’s most underrated players in the PAT (19:52).

    Gator Tales #241: WR Tre Grimes, Football Chat and “Gator Great” Chris DiMarco

    When you look at the way 2020 has played out on the gridiron, almost everything has changed relative to expectations, from the schedule, to the opponents, to the number of people in the stands and much more. But one element that stayed constant both before and after COVID upended our world was Florida’s need and desire to beat Georgia and rise to the top of the SEC East. That happened this past weekend in Jacksonville, putting the Gators in the driver’s seat for Atlanta and beyond in year three under Dan Mullen.

    On this week’s show, host Adam Schick welcomes senior receiver Tre Grimes to discuss the triumph over the Bulldogs and the match-up against Arkansas and his former roommate Felipe Franks (1:55).

    Then, FloridaGators.com senior writer Scott Carter stops by to take a deep dive into where Florida stands at this juncture and the challenges awaiting them as the new top dog in the division (18:52)

    Finally, with the first ever November Masters upon us, we’ll catch up with former Florida golfer and PGA Tour veteran Chris DiMarco (44:55).

    Gator Tales #239: OL Stewart Reese and Missouri Preview

    After an unexpected two-week hiatus, Florida returns to action this weekend to take on Missouri in The Swamp. And while we know we’ll see the Gators in throwback jerseys and helmets, we know much less about what to expect on the field.

    On this week’s show, host Adam Schick chats with offensive lineman Stewart Reese about how the team has handled the COVID disruption and how a Florida kid ended up at Mississippi State… and then back in the Sunshine State (1:36).

    Then, FloridaGators.com senior writer Scott Carter joins Adam to assess where the Gators stand entering a grueling, seven-week sprint to the finish line (24:22).

    Gator Tales #238: COVID Update and “Gator Great” Chris Leak

    We knew this season would be unlike any other, and that’s certainly proven true at an early juncture for the Gators. Following their loss at Texas A&M, the football program suffered a COVID-19 outbreak that caused the team to pause all activities and delayed both the LSU and Missouri games.

    On today’s show, host Adam Schick chats with FloridaGators.com senior writers Scott Carter and Chris Harry about the latest developments within the football program, the opening of practice for men’s basketball and much more (1:28).

    Then, Adam opens up the GATOR GREATS vault and shares an exclusive chat with former QB Chris Leak about his early life and post-UF career (34:42).

Great insight, not tech savvy.

The show is great but turn your ringers off when taping! That ping is deafening.

Wright w/ awesome attitude

Adam, Thanks for the interview with Wright. His perspective, faith, attitude is ideal, but rarer these days. I loved the humility and trust. You did a superb job with all your well-stated questions. Thanks!
