Jim McElwain had a heated post-game exchange with a reporter following Florida’s 31-13 loss to FSU on Saturday night.


The Florida Gators, plagued by an anemic offense and what appeared to be little, if any, in-game adjustments, were outmanned and outclassed by rival Florida State in Tallahassee on Saturday night. The Seminoles took their fourth straight over the Gators, cruising to an easy 31-13 victory.

The loss proved yet again how far the gap is between the two programs.

During the post-game press conference, McElwain was questioned whether his team would be prepared for the SEC Championship Game.

“I don’t know whether they’ll come back or not, it’s gonna be a heck of a test,” McElwain said.

“Does that concern you, though,” a reporter followed in regards to McElwain not knowing if his team would bounce back and be ready for the conference title game. The question was targeted at the coaching staff and its seeming lack of preparation for the Florida State game. McElwain, however, took the dialogue as his players being questioned.

“Well, don’t you think it would? I would say it would. Yeah, I’m concerned. These guys have been through a ton now, and they played their tales off today and it hurts. But you know as a competitor, you tear off the rearview mirror and go forward.”

“Our team will be ready,” he continued, aggravated and shaking his head at the reporter. “And I have no idea what kind of question that was, but to question that locker room right there and those players.

McElwain and the Gators have a tall task this weekend with Alabama in the Georgia Dome. The Crimson Tide opened as 21-point favorites, the largest spread in the SEC Championship Game since 1995, showing just how little faith there is in this Florida football team.

It’s going to take a near-perfect game plan and execution if Florida hopes to knock off Alabama. Anything but that and McElwain will likely be answering a similar line of questions this time next week.
