While having six more cases of coronavirus isn’t ideal, the good news for fans of the Gators is that the game against Missouri is going to happen Saturday.

Head coach Dan Mullen already said the Gators will have the necessary players in order to take the field after being off for the past two weeks because of coronavirus.

I honestly feel bad for the Gators and fans of the program. Their last game was a loss to Texas A&M, and then all hell broke loose with coronavirus.

The game this Saturday against the Tigers will be the first time the Gators have been back on the field since Oct. 10.

That’s simply a brutal amount of time to wait between games.

Hopefully, Florida’s issues are behind them, and they’re ready to roll the rest of 2020. They’re one of the best teams in America. We need them playing!
