Geoff Collins ready to place his stamp on Florida's defense

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The total transformation takes time. You don't just walk in, change from the colors of the old to the new, and say "let's do it." That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works. Plus, that's not new Gators defensive coordinator Geoff Collins' style. He is known as the "Minister of Mayhem" for crying out loud.
