Florida Football: Gators Offense Should Improve After Shaking Off Rust

As the Florida Gators prepare to take on the Texas A&M Aggies in their SEC opener on Saturday, the Florida offense will have improve after struggling against the Bowling Green Falcons last Saturday.

At Alligator Army, Andy Hutchins gives some compelling reasons why the offense will improve against the Aggies this week, starting with offensive coordinator Brent Pease opening up the offense after keeping things close to the vest in Week 1:

Florida didn't play very well on offense against Bowling Green. Players looked rusty and uncomfortable, and Brent Pease's offense stayed basically conservative despite deploying a variety of formations. If that is the true talent level of this offense — which is, in fairness, possible, if unlikely — then Pease will prove to be a terrible coach and Florida will struggle to average 20 points this year. I don't think it is, and I think a week of practice in the wake of that lackluster performance should help get things moving in the direction of competence, if not excellence.

The Florida offense should also see some improvment now that Jeff Driskel has been named the starting quarterback. Giving him the majority of snaps in practice will build a rapport with his wide receivers going forth this year.
