The Florida Gators were in town and it was strictly business for long time strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti and new Head Football Coach Will Muschamp. The Gators took command early with a huge and athletic group of lineman...both on defense and offense. The skill guys could probably all be placed on the track team..... in fact, one of their young running backs, Jeffrey Demps, has world class speed in the 100 meter dash....proving it at the Olympic Trials last year with a blazing 10.01 time! Does that track speed translate to football speed? Well, how about an 84 yard race to the Kentucky endzone????...which no doubt pleased offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, along with a team total of 405 yards rushing.
Prior to the kick-off, I caught up with UF strength coach Mickey Marotti who took a few minutes to share some information on the Florida In-Season Strength Training Program and what Saturday's pre-game meal for the Gators consisted of.
