Gators to "bring the kitchen sink" against Alabama, Charlie Weis says



You can stop wondering whether Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has been holding something back in the Gators' offensive arsenal in preparations for the upcoming big games.

Perhaps he has, but apparently not anymore.

On Monday, Florida coach Will Muschamp acknowledged that since the Gators have outscored their first four opponents 161-36, there hasn’t been a great need to throw it all out there. Earlier Tuesday night Weis said that will all change with Alabama on Saturday night. The Tide leads the league in scoring defense (8.0) and total defense (184.0), and Weis said the Gators have to bring whatever it takes to win.

 “I think you have to play sound, fundamental football and you have to go ahead and throw the kitchen sink at them now,’’ Weis said. “And they're going to get the kitchen sink. You guys have been writing about holding things back; well you won't have to worry about that this week. They're going to get plenty.''

Listen to Weis talk about diversifying the Gators' offense and what he sees from the Alabama defense.
