GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida head coach Will Muschamp is on the prowl for toughness. He's said it himself after the Gators' regular season ended last Saturday in a 21-7 loss to arch-rival Florida State.

"We are a soft football team," Muschamp said after the game. "That's the bottom line -- I told our guys we are not a physically tough football team and a mentally tough team."
