- Penalties continue to be a concern for Florida heading into Saturday's game at Miami. The Gators were flagged eight times for 60 yards against Toledo, including a holding penalty by WR Quinton Dunbar that negated a TD run by Solomon Patton on a reverse play. Of Florida's eight penalties, four came on defense, including three offsides penalties. Florida LB Ronald Powell was whistled for one of the offsides penalties. "We've got to eliminate it from me to the next guy," Powell said. "We can't be the best team defense we can be if we make dumb mistakes like that. I'm responsible for it." - The Sports Xchange

Strengths: Powell signed with Florida after being rated by recruiting services as the No. 1 overall prep prospect. He appeared in all 13 games and started once (Appalachian State) as a true freshman in 2010, recording 25 tackles, including 2.5 for loss. He won the starting BUCK role in 2011 and emerged as one of Florida's top threats off the edge, recording nine tackles for loss and six sacks among his 32 stops.
Weaknesses: Looked every bit of the ascending star in 2011 but missed all of last season after twice tearing the ACL in his left knee in 2012.
