In a rather lengthy press conference, Jim McElwain delved into a myriad of different topics revolving around his program.
The Kelvin Taylor incident from this past Saturday was thoroughly addressed and discussed. Interestingly enough, McElwain demoted Taylor from the starter at the running back position to a third-string standing behind two true freshmen in Jordan Cronkrite and Jordan Scarlett. This is surely a move motivated by discipline.
On an injury front, true freshman left tackle Martez Ivey will begin to practice. It was thought he may be ready by the start of conference play. Should he be available, it'll be a big boon for Florida from a depth and talent standpoint.

Vernon Hargreaves III is questionable for the Kentucky game.
The elite corner would likely be tasked with shutting down Kentucky's top receiver in Garrett Johnson. At this time, it's unknown as to whether linebacker Alex Anzalone will be able to compete versus the Wildcats. Anzalone injured the same shoulder he had surgically repaired earlier in this career. With depth precarious at the position, the Gators are holding their collective breath hoping the injury isn't severe.
After what McElwain termed as an "embarrassing" performance versus East Carolina, the Gators will face a team hungry to prove itself. Kentucky hasn't beaten Florida in football since 1986. The Gators will also be going up against a squad with a higher caliber of athlete than they faced last weekend.
One can surely bet Mark Stoops' team will be ready to play on Saturday.
