For Florida fans, Will Muschamp could not be gone soon enough. When Muschamp was hired, it was praised by nearly everyone. He was a top coordinator when Texas was still Texas. Years later, Muschamp was run out of Gainesville. A large part of that, aside from losing a lot of games, was due to his inability to get the offense moving.

The Jim McElwain era begins at Florida and fans hope to see a more imaginative offense than they have seen in previous years. McElwain was an offensive coordinator at Alabama under Nick Saban when the team won two national championships. He turned around a Colorado State team in large part due to an explosive offense.

Book a trip to Atlanta: Perhaps, Tim Tebow will be cut from the Philadelphia Eagles and find out he has another year of eligibility left. No, Tebow is not walking through that door, but it appears redshirt freshman Will Grier will be.

Like seemingly every SEC team, Florida has not named a starting quarterback but all indications point to Grier taking the first snaps under center on September 5. The team will be tested with cross-divisional games against Ole Miss and LSU. Florida fans should watch to see what McElwain does with the offense, but do not expect it to be enough to win the division.
