Florida football coach Urban Meyer’s early summer was altered this year by the new NCAA rule that prohibits head coaches from going on the road to recruit. But Meyer is staying busy and keeping tabs on his players, mostly through strength and conditioning coordinator Mickey Marotti. Veteran Sun football beat writer Robbie Andreu had a chance to catch up to Meyer on Thursday night before a Gator Gathering in Tampa. Meyer shared his thoughts on several topics:
Q:What’s your mind-set where the program is coming out of spring ball and going into next season?
A:I’m excited. There are a couple of areas of concern, which I think everyone in the country knows what they are. We have a chance to be a real good football team. The offensive line just excites me when I think about those players. I talk to them a lot. It all starts there. Then if we get a little better on the D-line, I think we have a chance to be really good.
