Will Muschamp says there's still plenty of room for improvement



Despite being 3-0, including two SEC road wins, Florida coach Will Muschamp said there’s plenty of room for improvement.  Muschamp said critical areas are third-down conversions (UF was 3-of-13), short-yardage, penalties (8-for-78) and red zone defense (UT was 3-of-3, all touchdowns, in the red zone).

“After a win, it’s never as good as it seems, and after a loss, it’s never as bad as it seems, and that’s the way I kind of look at it. I’m very technical about how we play, and we’ll continue to face better opponents throughout the season and we need to improve. We have a lot of improvements that need to be made. It’s easy to coach hard off of the film after a win, sometimes after a loss, it’s a little tougher but, again, I kind of look at them all the same. It’s no different from me walking in here Monday afternoon with the football team after a win or a loss. I’m very technical about it, what you did well, what you didn’t do well, realistic about where you are, what you’re going to get hurt on. This league is a league that, like most other leagues, they’re going to watch the film, and you will see again what hurt you before. We’ve got to improve in some areas.”
