Junior-college transfer WR Carl Moore has said there was no hiding he
"didn't know anything" when he first enrolled in the spring. Moore said he was just
"running around" without any real precision in his routes.
After a summer of practicing every day with QB Tim Tebow, however, it looked like Moore was ready to contribute. But so far he's only caught two passes for 41 yards, although one of those catches was a momentum-swinging one against Miami in Week 2.
"I definitely want to be involved, " Moore said.
"It is what it is. It's not really too frustrating because I know I got to do what I got to do when I get in the game."
Moore sustained a hip pointer on that catch against the Hurricanes, but he said it was nothing that will keep him from playing.
"Carl Moore's going to be a little bit more involved," Coach Urban Meyer said.
"He's working his tail off."
D-line gets deeper
After missing the last six games of last season due to muscle deterioration in his back (it was a non-football related injury) redshirt sophomore DT Brandon Antwine could play Saturday against Arkansas.
"It's a heckuva deal," Meyer said of Antwine.
"There were a lot of people that thought he wouldn't play for sure this year. I've never heard of the injury."
Antwine would struggle to walk off the practice field last year, and he even had a wheelchair at one point.
Meyer also said sophomore DT Torrey Davis would travel with the team this weekend. Davis has had academic issues but has drawn Meyer's praise recently.
Apopka High alum Jaye Howard could also be in the mix for some extra snaps.
"He's a young player and still acts young," Meyer said.
"He's moved from inside to end. He's just got to settle down."
Backup LB Ryan Stamper is still questionable with a sprained ankle.
WLB Dustin Doe is already out for about two weeks after double hernia surgery. Brandon Hicks is going to take Doe's place, and Edgewater alum Lorenzo Edwards could also get some snaps if Stamper sits out.
UF defensive coordinator Charlie Strong is from Arkansas and has told Meyer, who was last in Arkansas 30 years ago, what to expect when the Razorback fans do their
"Woo Pig Sooie" chant.
"It's SEC," Meyer said.
"It's crowd noise, fired-up SEC fans."
