Florida coach Will Muschamp went on ESPN on Tuesday to field questions about the upcoming season. Here are some highlights:
On coming off a 7-6 season:
"I'm really excited about the foundation we've built. We didn't get the results we wanted in our first year, certainly, and I understand the expectations to go to Atlanta and play for a championship at the University of Florida. So I'm excited about the foundation and where our team is at this point."
On fans' expectations:
"Our expectation every year is to go to Atlanta and play for a championship, but we're 15-11 the last two years at the University of Florida. So I'm not asking anyone to be patient, let's be realistic about where we are. The two blemsishes on our roster last year were the quarterback position and the offensive and defensive ilnes, quality depth, guys we had to have to be successful in our league throughout the duration of an SEC season. And when we lost John Brantley, our senior quarterback, in the fifth game of the year, confidence on our offense went out the door."
"We can win with both guys. Both Jeff and Jacoby are outstanding quarterbacks who have the intangibles to be successful. They have a skill set that's very similar, so we're not repping two offenses. I'm really excited about [new coordinator] Brent Pease on the offensive side of the ball and what he brings to the table for both young men. I'd like to name a starter, but we're going to wait and we're going to do what it takes to win football games at Florida."
On his primary offensive goals:
"Be more balanced, be able to run the ball when we need to. Late in games last year we were unable to maintain possession of the ball. We couldn't run the ball. We put the defense on the field way too long, so those are things we've got to be able to do: run the ball in the red zone. We were 1 of 7 in three ballgames we lost in the SEC last year in the red zone scoring touchdowns. That could be the difference in three or four games."
