EXCITING TIME: John Brantley on his first career start as Florida's quarterback on Saturday: "I've been waiting three years. I'm very excited for this moment to come."
He added he will be nervous on Saturday but "If you're not nervous, something's wrong." He'd love to throw a deep ball early but joked he might, "Throw it out of the stadium," he'll be so fired up. NEW FEELING: C Mike Pouncey has always played with his twin Maurkice until this season. Saturday's season opener will be the first football game Mike hasn't played without his brother. Maurkice left for the NFL and is starting at center for the Pittsburgh Steelers in preseason after being taken in the first round of the draft.
