Really interesting comment from Florida head coach Will Muschamp last night just before he spoke to the Titletown Gator Club in Gainesville.
“I mean this: I think we’re better right now than we were at any point last year,”
Must have been one heck of a spring practice coach as that is quite a statement to make. I know that last years 7-6 Gator team was a disappointment, but what you have now is better?
Let me look at this for a second. Right now, Florida quarterbacks have a combined two career starts. The projected starting running back, a senior, has never started a game. And the wide receivers have been MIA for the last two seasons.
The reason for Muschamp’s optimism is new offensive line coach Tim Davis and the improvement in the OL:
“I think we made tremendous progress [on the offensive line],” Muschamp said. “I think Tim Davis has done really good job with those guys gelling and coming together. That’s where we’re different.”
I do believe that Florida will be better next season than they were last season. Muschamp has recruited really well and I expect several of the highly touted incoming freshman to make an immediate impact.
But going from 7-6 to 8-5 is an improvement and going to 9-4 is a big jump. I cannot see Florida improving more than that at the moment.
