Sustained success is expected at Florida. The school has the facilities, the money, and the tradition to be a Top 10 program every year. This isn’t a team used to losing, but losing is where the Gators have been recently. The 2021 and 2022 seasons were the first back-to-back losing seasons for the Gators since 1978 and 1979. They now go into 2023 in year two under Billy Napier, knowing another losing season would see them go back-to-back-to-back for the first time in almost 70 years. Surely, that can’t happen?
The Gators have a home schedule that should allow an easy route to seven wins if this is anything like a true Gators squad. Games against McNeese State, Charlotte, and Vanderbilt should be gimmes, while they would think at least one of the Arkansas and Florida State games should be winnable.

The biggest problem Florida has is optics. Florida has been bad at a time when Georgia has been the best team in college football for three years, and Tennessee has become the most exciting offensive team to watch in the country. This team needs a rebound season, one where seven wins are the minimum requirement, and at least one of those has to be over a major SEC opponent.
