Florida Gators' Will Muschamp says Gators need to become more mentally tough



Fresh off back-to-back losses to the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the nation, Florida coach Will Muschamp said Monday the Gators need to become tougher mentally in order to deal with the adversity that often comes with playing in the SEC. Muschamp said the Gators have improved over the course of the season, but not nearly enough.

Muschamp said Florida will spend the week, yet again, working on reducing penalties and improving tackling - two areas which have been huge problems for the Gators.

Florida senior QB John Brantley will not play on Saturday when the Gators face Auburn.
