Actually the way UF is attacking the press is pretty sound. UF is not moving the ball quite as quickly as it should though against presses. That is you throw the pass when the double team is coming at you, not after it gets to you.
Nobody pressed us successfully last year, this year we have struggled with the press consistently. Scottie is the one charged with bringing the ball up against the press, when he is trapped he panics and makes really bad passes, teams couldn't trap Erv, he was too quick and was great at drawing fouls. So if all Scottie needs to do is pass the ball before the double team gets to him then he better learn to do it soon because if SEC coaches are watching any film they will see that Yale turned us over two possesions in a row and LSU got us for 4 in a row, not to mention the loss at Arizona which was directly related to our failure to even inbounds the ball against the press. So, no hangover here, just reality and frustration.
