Gators' Becky Burleigh can understand Urban Meyer's current plight



In 15 seasons as Florida's head soccer coach, Becky Burleigh has seen her share of highs and lows in the program. Burleigh has led her team to a national title in soccer, but also had some tough seasons. She's seen the Gator football team win two football national championships three seasons, and is now watching their struggles these days.

As a coach, Burleigh says she has strong empathy for what Florida coach Urban Meyer and the Gators are experiencing these days as they try to fight their way out of a three game losing streak and dropping from the national rankings.
