GAINESVILLE, Fla.--Will Muschamp is fired up and ready to get this season started. The Florida Gators open up fall practice on Friday. The Gators will start practice without starting quarterback Jeff Driskel, starting running back Matt Jones and starting linebacker Antonio Morrison. Driskel had an emergency appendectomy, Jones is out with a mysterious viral infection and Morrison is suspended for off the field issues.
Getting better on offense and cutting down on the turnovers are two Muschamp keys to winning the SEC East. The Gators were plus 15 last year and won 10 games when they won the turnover battle and lost two games when they didn't. Sounds simple enough.
Getting off to a quick start is another key for Florida. They open with Toledo than go to Miami before playing Tennessee. Fall practice has a sense of excitement in the air. We will have all things Gators on Action Sports 360 this weekend including a look at how Daniel McMillan, Nate Washington and Ahmad Fulwood are fitting in as freshman expected to play a big role.
