Urban Meyer likes Gators' new underdog role



Last year at this time, Florida was preparing to enter the 2010 season as the defending national champions, led by a Heisman Trophy winner.

Today, the Gators remain a Top 10 preseason pick but are preparing to begin the season with a new quarterback and lots of questions at new positions.

Check out Meyer's thoughts about John Brantley and the upcoming season and how he's learning to take better care of himself.
