Florida's star wide receiver Robert Clark
BEST CASE: New faces abound at Florida this season. Head coach Wil Muschamp came in and hired Charlie Weis as his offensive coordinator. It will be fascinating to watch the dynamics on both sides of the ball for this season and years to come.
Teammates are remarking on senior quarterback John Brantley’s confidence, saying that its going through the roof. “His swag, his confidence is just higher than it’s been the past couple of years,” wide receiver Deonte Thompson said. “He’s taking leadership and taking control of the team.”
With great talent abounding in Gainesville and burgeoning stars like wide receiver Robert Clark coming of age, a senior QB coming into his own could lead Florida to a major BCS bowl.
WORST CASE: With a Yahoo! Sports report that implicated Florida while detailing possible NCAA violations at Miami, possible media scrutiny and stigma could become a drag on Florida's focus and momentum.
Receivers coach Aubrey Hill was one of seven coaches accused if being aware of impermissible benefits given by former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro. The story indicated that Hill introduced recruits to Shapiro while he was on the Miami staff from 2008-2010.
Muschamp says he has spoken to Hill and has put his 100 percent support behind the assistant.
