The Florida football players are as uncertain of when Urban Meyer's return will be as the rest of us…
Backs to be Prepared When Asked
Against Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl, look for Florida to lean heavy on their running backs, and when they do, the Gators should be ready. Sophomore Jeff Demps said the Gators are anxious to make a statement.
"We are just going to stick to the game plan," Demps said last week. "We just threw the ball a lot in the SEC game and we can't help that. We just have to come back and keep working like we always do."
It is never about the individual with guys like Demps. He understands things don't always turn out the way you expect and in the SEC Championship game, the backs were just ready to go if called upon.
"I didn't get frustrated, there are no ball hogs on this team so we just keep working," he said.
The offweeks have been strange so far as a great deal of the Gator coaches spent a lot of time out on the road recruiting and missing some practice time. With that and coaching changes at Florida and Cincinnati, you would think it wouldn't be easy to get ready for this game.
"It hasn't changed," Demps said about intensity at practice. "We are still out working hard trying to get better. We just try and block all that stuff out right now and just keep working."
