Trey would have you to know that the Gators aren’t a talented team. He would tell you that all the “good” players are gone. Urban’s tenure ended last year, and he left Will Muschamp with nothing. I mean, Muschamp would have been better off taking over for Howard Schnellenberger than good ol’ Urb. Yep, that’s exactly what he told all of us, right guys?
Unfortunately for our buddy Trey, Muschamp thinks the team is soft.
“We’re a soft football team – that’s the bottom line,” he said. “I told our guys we’re not a physically tough team and we’re not a mentally tough team. Self-evaluation is hard sometimes, but that’s the facts. Hard to say it. I’ve been called a lot of things in my life, but soft’s not one of them. And we are. And that’s my fault.”
As the head coach, Muschamp takes the heat for his players, rightfully so. After all, he is known for his fiery demeanor, and that hasn’t translated to his players, who rolled over more this season than Snoopy trying to take a nap on top of his dog house.
Now, one could make the argument that this team wasn’t built to run with power, or throw it downfield, but I would argue that these guys are still 4star recruits and should be able to withstand a block longer than it takes to change the channel to watch UCF instead.
The Gators might have an opportunity to show their old coach’s new team how tough they can be if the Gator Bowl gets their choice of Florida vs. Ohio State. It is also obvious that SEC Speed ain’t happening in Gainesville either. Well, except when Alabama plays there.
