For 58 minutes, I was disgusted; we all were. For 58 minutes, I watched the Florida offense do what the Florida offense does–struggle to do much of anyt...

When the Florida offense gets to the line of scrimmage before the snap, there isn’t much freedom for the quarterback to switch the play. That’s by the design of the Florida coaching staff. The Gators are trying to build a mindset into the team of tough, hardnosed football that features the running game. There isn’t much freedom to switch to pass plays if the defense dictates it.
