Matt Baker’s takeaways from Florida-Georgia

1. The injury added to this insult: RB Malik Davis (Jesuit High) left the game with an undisclosed injury. He wasnít on the sideline afterward and did not return.

2. Gators DB Chauncey Gardner said Georgia QB Jake Fromm was almost exclusively throwing simple passes. There was nothing simple about Frommís 17-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

3. Maybe itís too early, but the top two names youíll hear mentioned with Floridaís not-yet-open coaching job: Mississippi Stateís Dan Mullen and UCFís Scott Frost.
