Will Muschamp took the stage in Gainesville prior to the 2013 season to speak to the Gainesville Gator Club.
“Last year I walked into most of these things with a bulletproof vest on,” Muschamp joked with the crowd following Florida’s 11-2 season.
The crowd was excited about the season to come and hopeful that the Gators would make a return trip to Atlanta to represent the SEC East in the SEC Championship game. That obviously didn’t happen last season and the crowds this year will likely be less receptive and joyous than they were a year ago.
This time around, Muschamp will be selling his plan and that the Gators are not too far off. He’ll kick off his speaking tour in front of the Gainesville Quarterback Club on April 8, just four days before Florida’s spring game. In total, Muschamp will make eight appearances, head basketball coach Billy Donovan will make two and assistant coaches will make four additional appearances to speak to Gator fans around the state.
