Will Muschamp Stifling Florida Gators Offense?

The Gators opened their season last Saturday against Bowling Green and came away with a rather unimpressive win -- by Florida standards -- as they beat the Falcons 27-14 on just 365 yards of total offense, which is un-Gator like, to say the least.

Fans have been concerned with new head coach Will Muschamp's decision to play his two quarterbacks, even opening the game on Saturday with both of them on the field. It would seem that offensive coordinator Brent Pease is taking the heat for many of these play calls and on-field decisions, but according to the Orlando Sentinel, it's Muschamp who is calling the shots on offense and that seems to be the main issue:

It comes down to this -- it was Muschamp's decision to force the run game against Bowling Green. Just like it was his decision to play two quarterbacks - Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel - against the Falcons. And just like it was his decision to have both players on the field for the start of the game.

Perhaps Muschamp's worst enemy could be himself.
