Florida Gators Football: Brent Pease Doesn't Want Any Divas At Wide Receiver

Florida Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease knows exactly what he wants from the wide receiver position: production, sans drama.

According to, Pease has set the expectations for his players at wideout somewhat sternly:

"I'm going to tell you this: We're not just sticking anybody out there that looks pretty and can run. They better go out there and perform. They better go out there and block.

"If you came here thinking, ‘I was labeled this, labeled that,' you might not see some people. You go out there and you make plays. That's the bottom line at that position. We don't want any of these Terrell Owens guys."

The Gators have been known for putting dynamic playmakers on the field at wide receiver, but this current Florida squad doesn't have that level of talent. So it would seem that Pease wants his players to go back to the basics and do the little things in order to help make the team successful.
