Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp made his scheduled appearance Wednesday on the Southeastern Conference‘s weekly coaches teleconference and touched on a number of topics surrounding his team heading into Saturday’s game against the Florida State Seminoles.

INJURY UPDATES

Muschamp said redshirt junior quarterback Tyler Murphy (shoulder) is “still questionable” though he did throw some early in the week. Others who might be able to play include junior cornerback Marcus Roberson (ankle) and sophomore defensive end Jonathan Bullard (knee).

Sophomore left tackle D.J. Humphries (MCL), redshirt junior linebacker Michael Taylor (MCL) and freshman LB Alex Anzalone (shoulder) are all out for the game.

OFFENSIVE EVALUATION

In his only question of the day, Muschamp was asked to evaluate the job offensive coordinator Brent Pease has done as a play-caller this season.

“I think when you lose three offensive tackles and two quarterbacks and a 1,000-yard rusher, it makes it very difficult to call plays,” he replied. “Brent is a good play-caller and an outstanding football coach. It’s been frustrating for all of us, including him, in our production offensively this year.”

Muschamp then provided one more statement which fits closer in line with his comments regarding the offense over the last couple of weeks. “We want to do what we got to do to win games. That’s what you want to do, and we haven’t done that this year,” he said.

    The thing i continue to struggle with in is our “scheme” on offense. It is really hard for me to believe that Pease cannot be creative enough in our attack that we would be able to utilize what talent we have and at least not be inept on offense. That is of course assuming we have the “talent” on offense to even attempt this. It makes me wonder if we are truly that bad or is it just from the top down our “scheme” is not to lose rather than win. Having a 3rd string QB at the helm could get any OC fired regardless of how good they are at designing plays. I am glad I am not having to make the hard decisions about who on the staff stays and goes.

    I will still be cheering for us to beat FSU. GO GATORS!

    Until his offensive philosophy is to score as much as possible vice possess the ball to keep his defense off the field, Muschamp won’t win many more games.
