After last season's 4-8 disaster, even occupying the final spot in the Way-Too-Early Preseason Top 25 might seem like a stretch for the Gators. But after limping through UF's first losing season since 1979, embattled Gators coach Will Muschamp is promising big changes, particularly on offense. Muschamp fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and replaced him with Duke's Kurt Roper, who is expected to install a more up-tempo attack. A fast-paced system would seem like a better fit for rising senior quarterback Jeff Driskel
, who missed much of last season with a broken leg. In fact, 13 UF players suffered season-ending injuries this past season, and many of them are coming back. The Gators might have 10 starters coming back on defense, which might finally have an offense to help it. The Gators better show marked improvement in 2014 or Muschamp won't be back for another season.
