Tampa Bay Bucs coach Raheem Morris lauds Florida Gators strength
Tampa Bay Bucs coach Raheem Morris once visited a Florida Gators football practice and it had a profound influence.
"How do we want to look as a team? I was lucky enough to go up and see Urban Meyer practice at Florida and I’m looking at Percy Harvin and those guys on the field work out and they’re all ripped," Morris said. "I’m looking at all those guys running around, Louis Murphy and I’m going, ‘Wow, look at this team!’ Then I look to my left and there’s a bunch of underclassmen and they’re all jacked up, all ripped. They looked like the guys from (the movie) 300. And I’m like, ‘Man, I want our team to look like that.’ I called them up and started stealing stuff from Urban. I am not afraid to be a thief."
