Over the past decade, during the offseason Inside the Gators has run several Anonymous Player Departing Thoughts Q&A sessions with individual players. This time around, we've changed the format somewhat in that it isn't the traditional interview, but rather sharing offseason workout and player tidbits from a few different sources in a three-part July edition of the series.

Name the player. He should be put to shame. Did he transfer or graduate?

I can't wait to see what Black can do. He's big as a linebacker but playing in the secondary.

You can't expect anyone changing positions when they get to college to be better than players who have played at the position for 6 to 10 years.

Very interesting about the unnamed player. There were a few that were rumored to wanting to opt out.
Love reading that about black, can't wait to see what he can do.
Hopefully dean expands upon his late season success and grows!

If everyone is on the same page and no one is making trouble maybe we can get back to how we were the first two years.

We can't lose 3 or 4 games again.

Even if there was a trouble maker Mullen is the coach he doesn't get a pass.

Mullen has to take the next step.

I wonder if some of this has to do with the rumored issues as to how Mullen handled the Black Lives Matter issues and how Johnson stepped up to smooth things over. Also rumored to be why he left.
Did you ask about those issues to the anonymous players Mark?

There is always something juicy in these! I still remember feeling so shook when the anonymous player was bashing Mac's strength and conditioning program. Not sure I want to know who the poisonous player was but I'm glad he's gone and the team is coming together. I have feeling we are sneaky good this year. Go Gators!

Are you being serious? You are glad the player is gone and was poisonous by telling the truth about the nonexistent S&C of MacElwain's program? Seriously?

Wait a minute, you are talking about the current player and not the one who spilled the beans of about Mac.

I don't know whether to call it good news or bad news. It sounds like Mullen lost the team last year but got them back this year.

It needs to show up on the W/L record because he didn't get a raise to lose 4 games a year.

If I had to guess it would be a certain Cornerback

I would have guessed receiver.

Thanks for writing this. These and the visit stories from the parents are the best things on the internet.

Maybe the receiver who thought the coaches bad mouthed him to pro scouts.

My thoughts exactly. Would make a lot of sense why Mullen wouldn't give his word of affirmation to scouts.

When is the last time you heard of a lineman switching sides and being good?

What does that say about all the younger players if he can beat them out?

James Houston maybe?

The one that was the interview on McElwain was one of the best ones. How everything happened with Grier and how players from other colleges think of our dorms as public housing those kind of things were good to find out about.

Yeah I was talking about the current player mentioned in this article.

There were rumors of separation on the team. Younger players not getting along with older players and this tells us why.

Black will be a game-changer just saw his JUCO highlights showing he was the best player on the field. When I see the video or pictures of him on the Florida campus he always has a smile.

I would put a name with it. Put them out on public if they were causing trouble.

I think everyone has it figured out. Go back to the draft and what a player said about our coaches.

If I was guessing (and I am) I'd say 1 of Grimes, Houston, or Marco
