Perhaps these were Catapult GPS trackers that were distributed to vacationers. Maybe it was the portraits of every UF assistant coach taped to the registration photos so that potential clients could quickly match the face to the name. Or maybe it was Napier and almost all of his staff who gave up everything they did to greet a priority target upon arrival. All of this – and more – has made this year’s Friday Night Lights feel very different from the ones Mullen runs, and if you’re a Gators fan, that’s good.

But don’t be surprised if the Gators keep climbing the rankings. In the end, Napier’s first Friday Night Lights performance was reputedly a hit.
