Florida's Nussmeier keeping offensive options open

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Doug Nussmeier has no real plan for Florida's offense. And that might be a good thing. Nussmeier and new coach Jim McElwain are waiting until after they evaluate the roster to decide what kind of offense best fits the Gators. While it might seem like an obvious path to take, especially because neither has much familiarity with Florida, it comes across as a ground...
