Riley has a simple explanation for Strickland's improvement. i; "He knows the system better, Kiley said. "Believe it or not, he listens to me.

Ron Olesiek, Leroy Special to the Palm Beach Post GAINESVILLE The Defensive core dominated Florida's first spring scrimmage, rushing passes and stuffing the running game. In all, the Gators rushed 25 times for minus 19 yards. That included six sacks. Each quarterback threw one touchdown but also one interception. In all, Tim Olm-stead, Jesse Palmer and Doug Johnson combined for 19 completions on 53 attempts. "They have to get better," coach Steve Spurrier said. "They are a long way off being where they can be as quarterbacks, but that's why we practice." Andrea Szulszteyn UM football: Senior defensive end Derrick Ham will miss the rest of spring practice after tearing a pectoral muscle. Coach Butch Davis said Ham will be out for 10 weeks. Wide receiver Omar Rolle is still day-to-day with a separated shoulder.
