Growing up in Texas, Emmanuel Moody wasn't ever emerged in the Florida-Florida State rivalry. When he signed with Southern Cal out of high school, he never imagined playing in it. However, transferring to Florida put him right in the center of the rivalry in 2008. He now sees the importance of every rivalry to the Florida fan base.

The Florida offense seemed to open things up last weekend and at the same time, the inside running game took off. Emmanuel Moody is a big part of that running game and ran for 58 yards on 10 carries on the day. He looked strong and powerful running through tackles, even though he was slightly injured. Moody says this week he is as good as ever and liked the feeling of running well last week.

That is his new attitude and it allows him to look forward to a big senior season.

The Florida Gators have to replace a lot of talent from a 2009 squad that finished third in the country. One spot they don't have to replenish is at running back as the Gators return everyone and will add a freshman into the mix in June. This spring was really all about one guy. Sophomore Mike Gillislee was a workman and needed the time to get to know the offense. He did just that.

Running backs Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps has taken most of the carries for the Florida Gators over the last two seasons, but it will be Emmanuel Moody getting most of the hand offs this spring. Rainey is practicing with the wide receivers and Demps is concentrating on the track and field season. With them elsewhere, Moody is the top running back for the Gators.

Wednesday will mark not only the pro scout day for the Gators looking to start earning money professionally. It will also mark the start of one of the more intriguing spring practices in recent years.
