Florida QB Jeff Driskel
After an 11-2 campaign and a Sugar Bowl appearance in the Gators' second year under head coach Will Muschamp, Florida finds itself back in the familiar position of being a national contender heading into this fall.
There's just one problem though, it doesn't look like one at times.
The Florida offense was one-dimensional by necessity last season, and that has to change in 2013 if the Gators want to stay in the national discussion.
Quarterback Jeff Driskel takes a lot of heat for his inability to stretch the field, but it isn't all his fault. The Gators don't have a consistent deep threat, and that has to change this season.
Quinton Dunbar has been a spring superstar for a few years now, but he has not looked like on in the fall. Demarcus Robinson, Ahmad Fulwood or even cornerback/defensive back Loucheiz Purifoy also need to step up.
Why is that so important?
The Florida defense is solid, but there are enough holes to be concerned about its ability to consistently dictate games as it did last season. Plus, while Matt Jones is a quality running back and a future superstar, he's still relatively inexperienced.
Florida's offense doesn't have to be explosive, it just needs to be dynamic enough to pose a marginal threat. That needs to happen before toe meets leather this fall.
