Gators' Charlie Weis highly disappointed in offense past two weeks



With four regular season games remaining, the Gators are ranked No. 94 in the nation in total offense and 74th in scoring offense.  And while the Gators have clearly struggled the past month, offesnive coordinator Charlie Weis said his biggest disappointment is that they haven't fared better the past two games.

In reality, he expected to struggle against No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama, but said he believes the Gators were not overmatched in talent against Auburn and Georgia.

"I thought the rest of that Alabama game (second half without QB John Brantley) was going to be a bit of a struggle,'' Weis said. "And going into LSU I thought that would be a bit of a struggle, especially when young Jacoby (Brissett) was dialed up after he hadn’t had a snap, I thought that would have been a bit of a struggle. I thought that if we were going to win the game it would have to be a low scoring game and it didn’t play out that way. I’m probably most disappointed - I’m disappointed when you lose to anybody - but I’m most disappointed that in the last two weeks, we didn’t’ make enough plays on offense to win the last two games.

"I think that’s probably my biggest disappointment,'' he added. "They were two games that you can’t say were mismatched opponents. That’s the thing I’m discouraged about the most.''
