GAINESVILLE, FL - Florida's receiving corps was supposed to be the program's deepest and most talented in years.

The wideouts have fallen short of expectations, even incurring partial blame for an offense that averaged a little more than 200 yards and 12 points the last two games.

Getting the group playing at a higher level is a top priority for Florida (3-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference), which hosts LSU (4-2, 0-2) on Saturday night.

Coach Will Muschamp attributed 15 dropped passes to his receivers through four games, and that's only part of the problem.

Muschamp says "take ownership in your play and how you play and how you perform instead of point a finger at somebody else, which is the easiest thing to do and what we do in our society in most situations."
