GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Will Muschamp believes he has a surefire way of keeping his team from overlooking Bowling Green in Saturday's season opener.
Muschamp says he will ``turn the tape on from last year and let our team watch that. You watch the Furman game?''
The 23rd-ranked Gators haven't forgotten the near-debacle against the lower-division Paladins. Or that embarrassing loss to rival Florida State the following week.
Those are Florida's last two home games. No doubt, then, that the Gators want a better showing Saturday in The Swamp.
Last season was an eye-opener for many, including Muschamp. He hired a new offensive coordinator and revamped the team's weightlifting program in hopes of closing the gap on the Southeastern Conference heavyweights.
If the changes work, this year could go considerably smoother.
