GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Two weeks before the season opener, No. 23 Florida held a rare, open practice Saturday in The Swamp.
The Gators better hope it's not an indication of things to come.
About 1,000 fans showed up for a two-hour session in full pads that coach Will Muschamp called a "little sluggish."
Florida's offense, led by competing quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel, mostly struggled in 11-on-11 drills. In fairness, the Gators were coming off a physical scrimmage the day before and were fairly basic in hopes of keeping coordinator Brent Pease's revamped offense under wraps. Florida opens Sept. 1 against Bowling Green.
Muschamp says: "Obviously with today's technology, anything you say, do, show, it's there, it's out there, and it's going to be on the Internet five minutes later."
