Tags: East Division, Fewer Gators, UF
Up to now, Will Muschamp had caught a pretty big break. The expectations at Florida — while always high — haven’t been quite as high as usual. Fewer Gators have been listed on preseason All-SEC squads. And very few pundits have picked UF to win the East Division and reach Atlanta.
But Muschamp’s predecessor is raising the bar on expectations this week. Speaking with Pat Dooley of The Gainesville Sun, Meyer made it clear he feels the Gators he left behind are being underestimated:
“I’ll be rooting extremely hard for the Gators. I love Florida and I always will. It’s amazing to me that so many people don’t think they will win the East. I think they have a great shot at winning the East if the offensive line comes through.”
Just as old coaches never like new coaches downplaying the level of talent they’ve inherited, new coaches most often don’t like old coaches saying that a division title is within reach.
