Louisville defensive coordinator Vance Bedford a believer in Florida's offense



Florida's offense may still have its share of skeptics, but Louisville defensive coordinator Vance Bedford isn't among them.

The Gators are ranked No. 101 nationally in total offense (338.42 yards per game), but Bedford said today he believes Florida has a talented offense that's playing like a team that's sure of itself. 

"They play with a lot of confidence,'' said Bedford, a former UF assistant under former coach Urban Meyer. "You look at those guys, I know a lot of those guys, by the way. The offensive line is big and athletic. I think right now the quarterback position, they're playing better.  You could see the confidence building every single game. The receivers are starting to step up. They're making plays and did an outstanding job versus the Florida State University.  And (Mike) Gillislee is playing lights out. We knew when we recruited him several years ago, coach (Kenny) Carter, our running backs coach recruited him, he's playing extremely well.  So we're very concerned about that running game."
