Florida has lost four straight games, so you’re probably thinking there are no positive spins on the football team.
As the redneck ninja said, “No, says I!”
Three things to help you sleep at night! Starting… now!
1. Jonotthan Harrison is making great snaps to the QB.
Remember last season when Mike Pouncey was snapping the ball to a different area code? Well, that problem is gone!
Harrison, the redshirt sophomore center, has been excellent in getting the ball to the quarterback.
Sure, the snap might seem like a simple play; something that shouldn’t have to be worried about.
Well, Mike Pouncey taught us that you cannot take the simple things for granted.
And Harrison is doing a nice job of snapping the ball to the QB and doing it cleanly.
2. Chris Rainey hasn’t gotten into off-the-field trouble yet.
Rainey changed his number from 3 to 1. The No. 1 jersey was supposed to be an honor under Urban Meyer. To an extent it was, but it was also a curse.
Percy Harvin and Janoris Jenkins were the last two players to don the No. 1 jersey. Both were troubled with marijuana troubles. Harvin’s may have been more medical because of his bout with headaches, but Jenkins’ troubles were purely recreational.
Considering Rainey had already been in trouble with the law, him receiving the No. 1 jersey seemed like a death sentence. He has been able to rise above the influences of marijuana (lol) and stay out of trouble.
3. Nick Saban went 7-6 in his first year at Alabama.
Will Muschamp is a Saban disciple, so naturally fans are going to compare the two.
Saban struggled in his first year as a head coach at Alabama going 7-6, including a loss to Louisiana-Monroe.
When a coaching change occurs, most people spot the new guy two or three seasons to get a couple recruiting classes under his belt and get them involved.
Urban Meyer and Will Muschamp are complete opposites, so the guys Meyer left Muschamp aren’t ideal for the new philosophy.
I guarantee you this: The offense will be more power next season. And with each recruiting class, Muschamp will be looking more and more like an elite head coach.
