Following Florida’s 45-16 blowout loss to Missouri on Saturday, the primary recreation since coach Jim McElwain and this system parted methods, linebacker David Reese critically questioned the need of a few of his teammates. 

“It’s sometimes disappointing when everybody doesn’t want to come together and just play for each other,” a annoyed Reese advised reporters. “That’s sad to see. We’ve still got a lot to play for. Me personally and our defense, we want to play for those guys. We can’t have appearances like we just had today. That’s unacceptable.”

The 29-point loss was Florida’s worst in opposition to one other dropping crew (Missouri is Four-5) since 1946. 

“It wasn’t as personal for us as it should have been,” Reese added.

The reeling Gators (Three-5) have now misplaced 4 in a row, and Saturday was the fourth consecutive recreation the crew could not muster up at the least 20 factors. 

With McElwain gone, UF defensive coordinator Randy Shannon was named interim coach. Shannon stated after the sport of gamers’ effort, “if a guy’s going to check out, just go to the next guy. You’ve just got to keep playing.” 

In blasting a few of his teammates, Reese defended McElwain, Shannon and the teaching workers as an entire. 

“I just want to say one thing: We loved every single one of our coaches that’s been through here,” Reese stated. “It’s unfortunate what’s happened to them. I hate the way we represented our coaches like that today with this game. Those guys really care for us and gave us a real good game plan to do what we had to do.”
