The Florida Gators have been complaining about the Sugar Bowl loss to Louisville the entire offseason and it may not stop for a while. Former Florida safety Josh Evans, junior quarerback Jeff Driskel, and senior defensive lineman Dominique Easley have already chimed in with excuses. Now, it’s Florida football coach Will Muschamp’s turn.
Muschamp was asked if the Georgia game would be an extra emphasis in the offseason, like it was following the Gators’ crushing loss to Georgia in 2007, when the Bulldogs stormed the end zone after scoring their first touchdown. UF used that bitter defeat as motivation throughout the offseason.
“None,” Muschamp said. “Well, obviously, there’s no question our guys rally around the opportunity. Two games that we let slip out of our hands, the bowl game (loss to Louisville) and the game in Jacksonville.”
Apparently, Florida does not watch a lot of game film. Who knows when Florida will stop making excuses but the Gators need to move on and focus on 2014. Yes, it hurts when a team loses a game they feel they should have won but it’s time to put the 2013 season in the history books. It’s a new season, Florida.
