Out with the old, in with the new. Only Will Muschamp might not want you to know what exactly will be new when Florida hits the football field this fall. For that reason, Robbie Andreu of The Gainesville Sun believes “there’s a good chance that many, if not all, Florida practices will be closed to the public and the media.”
The writer believes spring practice in the Sunshine State will take on a more serious tone under the Gators’ new coach. Rather than the spring being used to work on the development of young players — as was often the case under Urban Meyer — Muschamp and crew have to learn their players strengths and weaknesses and put in new offensive and defensive systems.
Interestingly, Andreu is A-OK with being locked out of practice… if it comes to that.
This is going to be a spring about competing and staying focused as the Gators move into a new era. If the coaches decide the fans and the media might be a distraction, hey, I’m cool with that.
It’s that happy-go-lucky attitude that easily makes The Gainesville Sun the most obliging and accommodating hometown paper in the SEC.
