HOOVER, Ala.- Will Muschamp's defensive acumen has already helped Florida return to the upper echelon of the Southeastern Conference.

The third-year coach spent most of his appearance at SEC Media Days on Tuesday explaining how the offense plans to catch up.

Florida's defense was among the league's best last season, giving up just 14.5 points per game. It needed to be that good, because the Gators' offense ranked 10th in the 14-team SEC with 26.5 points per game.

Even though the no-huddle, high-tempo offense is en vogue in college football, Muschamp has consistently kept a more deliberate, physical approach.

Muschamp said Florida's offense must be more "consistent and efficient," and hopes junior quarterback Jeff Driskel will be able to provide those traits in his second season as the starter.
