Florida Football Challenged Once Again to Stop Steve Spurrier's Offense
GAINESVILLE- Watching Steve Spurrier's offense was once a joy for Gator nation, but nowadays, if the offense gets going, it spells trouble for the Gators defense.
For the 9th straight year, Spurrier will coach against his old team on Saturday, as the Gators visit South Carolina.
Gators Defensive Coordinator DJ Durkin called stopping Spurrier's offense, one of the toughest challenges his team will face this season and called the Gamecocks the most complete offense the Gators have played.
The Gamecocks haven't had overwhelming numbers on offense this year, ranking 6th in SEC rushing, 6th in passing and 8th overall, but Durkin still said Spurrier still knows how to get his receivers open.
"They do a good job of identifying coverages and I think they have, within their scheme they have routes they like against certain coverages and they can always go to them during a game," said Durkin on Wednesday.
"And you can tell that they've repped it a lot."
