What SEC Coaches Are Saying Anonymously About Florida

Here’s what the conference’s coaches are saying anonymously about Florida.

What do SEC coaches really think about Florida’s football program heading into the 2017 season?

Athlon Sports has the answers.

The sports site spoke to various coaches across the conference, who gave anonymous opinions about the Gators.

Here are some of the best ones:

"They’ll have to invent some things to rush the passer this year, and I’m not sure if they can because Randy Shannon likes to keep things simple. It’s a lot of pieces to replace, and the biggest thing they won’t be able to do is just rush four every time. When we played them, I think they blitzed us three times, and they could do that because they could just whip you with the front four and they can’t do that anymore."

"The linebackers don’t scare you at all."

"This is a make-or-break year for them on offense. They need a QB and everybody knows it."

Oof. We all knew Florida's defense would drop off a bit this season, but it appears SEC coaches aren't afraid of it at all. It's going to be an interesting season for the Gators, that's for sure.
