No need to tell Florida coach Will Muschamp the Gators received a brutal draw when the SEC announced the 2014 conference schedule earlier this week. Even with his focus on the next weekend’s season opener against Toledo, Muschamp is well aware what Florida is going to be up against next season. The Gators will play national powerhouse Alabama and LSU in crossover games with the SEC West – possibly the most difficult 1-2 punch any team in any league could face. Meanwhile, Georgia and South Carolina face neither school. Muschamp cannot not change that. But it does not mean he has to like it, even he says he and the Gators will "embrace" it.
