Fulwood standing out at Gators spring practice
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – We've spent a lot of time this spring talking about who's going to play quarterback for the Gators next year. But with Demarcus Robinson off to the NFL and Antonio Callaway still suspended indefinitely, the more pressing issue is who's going to be catching those passes. So far the Gators have been practicing without five of their top six reception leaders from a year ago. "I think Ahmad has taken some strides," said McElwain. I think he's a guy that I would circle and say that he's been standing out a little bit."
McElwain: Florida-Georgia is what college football is all about

I'm just glad he's our quarterback and looking forward to seeing how he progresses this week." If Georgia wins on Saturday they would end up in Atlanta if they close out their SEC schedule with wins over Kentucky and Auburn.
