SEC Media Days: Will Muschamp Bullish On Gators Season, Says Ronald Powell Ahead Of Schedule

Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp took to the podium on Wednesday morning, taking his turn in front of a thousand ravenous reporters at SEC Media Days. He started off with some good news for Gators fans.

Muschamp told the crowd that Ronald Powell was ahead of schedule, but he did not give a timetable for his return. The promising defensive end has been cleared to lift weights and run in a straight line as part of his rehab. Powell had his ACL repaired at the end of April after tearing it in the team's spring game.

After an update on Powell and a proclamation that the Gators have a "solid foundation" despite their 7-6 record last season, Muschamp launched into a position by position overview of his team. Among the most notable highlights was an update on the quarterback competition.

Muschamp said that both Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett will see an equal amount of snaps in camp. The coach wants to pick his starter before the season begins.

All SEC Media Day activity can be seen as it will be broadcast on ESPN3.com, shown on TV on ESPNU and broadcast live on Youtube here.
