Allegations by Mike McNeil, former Auburn football player, against head coach Will Muschamp must be a distraction of magnitude. McNeil accused Muschamp of paying him underneath the table while at Auburn, in the amount of $400. Most Gator fans would like to wash this story away, but this question of integrity will always loom in the back of Muschamps' mind.  If other accusations surface from Muschamps' Auburn days, this could be the worst intangible for the 2013 Gator football team.More issues for coach Muschamp include the many great defensive stars that are gone to the NFL. Sharrif Floyd on the defensive line was a huge loss. Jalani Jenkins and Jon Bostic, both linebackers, are not easy to replace. All three of these ex-Gator players were extremely important in stopping the run game.The Gator pass defense will not be the same without free safety Josh Evans and corner-back Matt Elam. This will be a factor when the Gators face four year starter Aaron Murray in the Georgia game.Overall, the Gators are not deep enough as Alabama to reload a defense every year.After watching the Gator offense in 2012, Jeff Driskel better have an average of more than 167 yards passing per game to compensate for the losses on defense.The Gator receivers caught a total of 12 touchdowns for the entire 2012 season, while  the rushing game with running back Mike Gillislee and the Gator defense carried the Gators.The Gators who need to step up in 2013 are as follows: QB Jeff Driskel, RB Matt Jones, DB Jaylen Watkins, and DT Jonathan Bullard.The Gator schedule shows some match-ups that will create severe thunderstorms for this Sunshine State team.September 7th, in Miami, Florida, will unveil the reality of which state of Florida team's stock will rise. The Gators will get a taste of what their season will endure when the Miami Hurricanes burn them on the pass.Miami QB Stephen Morris will find wide out Phillip Dorsett and running back Duke Johnson all day long against the Gators. The Canes on the road will be loss number one for the Gators.To sum up the rest of the Gator season: The game against LSU in Baton Rouge will give the term "payback is hell" a new meaning, Aaron Murray, with a three year starting offensive line and 10 out of 11 starters on offense returning, will extend the Georgia streak, and Jadeveon Clowney will rip out the heart of Gator Nation in Columbia.The Tennessee, Florida State, and Vanderbilt games will be too close for comfort. Sweetheart's Stuff   Swamp Life!  Gators don't have a lot to offer on the dating seen.if they don't stay cool, their heads and brains Explode!!they have thick scales on their backs (may I suggest Oil of Olay)they camouflage themselves by laying on logs (this suggests they're Sneaky)But, if you're still interested in a Gator hook-up, try these dating sites:GatorMingle.com, SwampMeet.com, MoreGatorsInTheSwamp.com Who's My Gator's Daddy?Sweetheart
