Florida offense beginning to take shape, Addazio says



If the Florida offense looked vastly improved for much of Saturday's game against Kentucky, Gators' offensive coordinator Steve Addazio agrees with you.

Addazio said the more diversified offense displayed against Kentucky reflected the type of team the Gators  eventually expect to be. 

"I think we kind of sprinkled in some of the things we've done in the past,'' he said. "We've got a lot of bank in, sort of speak. We put option back into our offense again. We wanted to do that. We put our spread game back in, our option game back in. At the end of the day our team had a great week of practice. We took a real step forward, which we've been waiting for that to happen.''

The Gators scripted several plays early in the game, including those that involved getting freshman WR Andre Debose more prominently into the offense. Addazio said he's unsure if the Gators will script even more as they prepare for Alabama this week.

"It's a growing process,'' Addazio said. "We've still got a lot of young guys in there. We're a little bit different team. This team is finding itself. We lost some real impactful players, so now we're re-piecing this back together.''
