Will Muschamp and Gators eager to move forward after Georgia loss



Flolrida coach Will Muschamp said while the Gators were extremely disappointed with the 17-9 loss to Georgia this past weekend, he and the team are eager to get back onto the field and put the Georgia game behind.

In fact, Muschamp wishes they could play before Saturday, when the Gators host Missouri.

“That’s the tough thing about football is you’ve to wait seven days,'' Muschamp said. "Billy (Donovan) and them may lose on a Wednesday and they can go back out Saturday and play. Or Sully (UF baseball coach Kevin O'Sullivan), they play a double header in the morning and then again in the afternoon and can get a win and get it out of their system. But we can’t."

Instead, the Gators will spend the week trying to correct some of its mistakes from last week, including ball security - the Gators had six turnovers.

While the turnovers were glaring, the Gators have other areas of concern. Florida has given up 26 sacks this season – five in the Georgia gam. Its run game has stalled. In the past two games, the Gators have run for 190 yards on 89 carries. And Florida had only three pass completions to receivers in the game, which receiver Frankie Hammond said is a reflection of the pressure Driskel is facing.
