Will Muschamp excited about opening of spring football



Florida opens spring football practice on Wednesday and coach Will Muschamp said today he's eager to get things started.

Muschamp said eliminating penalties and cutting down on turnovers will be among the major goals for the spring.

Several players will be out or limited. RT Chaz Green will not participate in spring practice still recovering from offseason ankle surgery that Muschamp said was more severe than initially thought. OL Jon Halapio had offseason knee surgery and will be limited early. LB Ronald Powell is still recovering from complications from an ACL tear last spring and will be extremely limited. WR Solomon Patton is non-contact, still recovering from a broken arm he suffered in the Georgia game. LB Neiron Ball also had ankle surgery and is out for the spring.
