The Gator football team continues to prepare for the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday in a big game for both teams.
Gator offensive coordinator Charlie Weis met with the media on Tuesday and he says he’s going to throw the “kitchen sink” at the Alabama defense. He told the media that it would not have to worry about the Gator offense holding anything back this week against the Tide.
Weis also said he’s happy that his offensive players are getting healthy, noting the return of tight end Jordan Reed to practice and the return to health of tight end A.C. Leonard. He also said quarterback John Brantley is fine after briefly leaving the game last week against Kentucky.
Weis also said he has a lot of confidence in backup quarterback Jeff Driscoll despite being a little shaky when he entered the game against Kentucky when Brantley left. When asked if he would be ready to play against Alabama, Weis said he had better be “because he’s second” alluding to his position on the depth chart.
The Weis offense has been largely productive, leading the SEC in rushing while throwing it effectively if not spectacularly.
