We start tonight down in Gainesville as Urban Meyer and his coaching staff try to deal with the post mortum of the Alabama loss, while also working to get the team to rebound for another conference test. Certainly Meyer has much work to do in the category of the former. So many things going wrong for the Gators Saturday night in Tuscaloosa.
Certainly you have to point to the fact Bama's simply a terrific football team in all phases, but Florida at times made things a bit too easy for Saban's troops. 4 turnovers, and the red zone failings the things that stick out the most for Meyer's guys.
Florida Head Coach
"...everybody wants to know, 'Whose fault was it? What happened?' It's our job to figure it out. If it was one person's fault, then you make a change and you do what you've got to do. It absolutely wasn't one person's fault. It was several, including, 'Should we have kicked the field goal on fourth down?' You can go, 'Should we does this, should we do this?' The good thing is, I don't do that. Our players probably hear it out there, but they don't certainly get it from us. We just have to improve our execution and not have the miscues that we had down in there. That's a different game if you score.But the red-zone scoring, that's a whole different ballgame. If we don't throw two of those picks and we have red-zone efficiency, we are in that thing."
Meyer and his staff will try to get things corrected as they prepare for LSU, whom they will host Saturday night. The Tigers coming off a bizarre win, to say the least, over the Vol's.
