GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Finding a starting quarterback is pretty high on Florida coach Will Muschamp's priority list, but finding some receivers who can make plays consistently isn't very far behind.

"It's critical," Muschamp said. "Did you see us play in the fall?"

It wasn't pretty. Running back Chris Rainey led the team with 31 catches. Tight end Jordan Reed was next with 28. Then, finally, came a receiver. Deonte Thompson had 21 catches -- that's 1.6 per game, which isn't a bad number if you play on a team that runs the Wing-T.
