Gators intent on controlling the hype surrounding LSU game



Not surprisingly, the Florida-LSU game is generating plenty of national attention, and is being billed as the Gators’ best measuring stick of the season so far to see just how much they’ve improved.

But Florida coach Will Muschamp is doing all he can to downplay the hype.

“This counts as one game; it doesn’t count for any more than that,’’ he said. “We’ve got a great opportunity setting in front of us here at our home stadium at 3:30 (Saturday). That’s how I look at it. We won’t put in any more hours this week than we did three weeks ago. I know everybody thinks that all of a sudden we’re going to change everything for one game, but we’re not.
