Video: Will Muschamp talks after Florida's first open practice

New, 12 comments

Florida's coach says he's "very pleased to this point" with how the Gators have practiced this month.

Will Muschamp met with the media Friday at noon to talk about Florida's efforts at fall practice thus far.

Some notes, will add more when I finish listening:

  • Jeff Driskel's completing 70 to 75 percent of his passes in camp, and, when asked if Driskel is "very far" ahead of Florida's other quarterbacks, Muschamp replied in the affirmative.
  • Offensive line news: D.J. Humphries and Chaz Green are Florida's starting tackles, Rod Johnson and Trenton Brown are Nos. 3 and 4, Cameron Dillard would be Florida's second-string center, and Max Garcia is playing well at center.
  • Slot receivers mentioned: Alvin Bailey, Valdez Showers, Latroy Pittman.
  • On Florida's fight: "I don't want fighting on the field. You fight in a game, you get kicked out. So I addressed it after practice. You had a young player, a freshman, that got a little excited, and in those situations ... you had a bunch of guys trying to separate the situation, but ... it's not something we tolerate."
  • On fighting in football: Says it stems from competition, and "I've been in 20 training camps ... I don't think there's been one that hasn't had a skirmish. You guys call it a melee, I call it a skirmish."
