Urban Meyer addresses team's serious issues



Florida coach Urban Meyer on Monday pointed the finger at himself for some of the Gators' problems this season, and said Florida has begun seriously working on correcting its issues.

“We’ve obviously had some severe issues here in the last three weeks, and they’ve been damaging as far as the won-loss record,’’ Meyer said. “The issue is not finding the blame, it’s finding the solution, and that’s what we’re going to do this week. We began the task last week.’’

Florida will play Georgia at EverBank Field in Jacksonville on Saturday with both still having a shot at winning the SEC East title. Georgia is on a three-game winning streak, Florida has lost its last three.

Meyer said major areas of concern are: turnovers, lack of big plays, pass efficiency, red zone offense and special teams. He also said the Gators may not be practicing efficiently enough.

Here's a portion of Meyer addressing the media during his weekly press conference on Monday.
