After lofty expectations for the 2022 Florida Gators following a Week 1 win against Utah, Billy Napier’s crew faltered in an ugly 26-16 loss to Kentucky on Saturday. Florida looks to improve on what went wrong in Saturday night’s loss.

Since the end of the game, Napier has been critical of both his team’s performance as well as his own.

“With our process, our routine, execution, how can we improve in terms of how we execute. I challenged our staff, let’s do our best work for the players,” Napier said during his Monday press conference. “The level of detail that we can offer the players throughout the week, meetings, walk throughs and practice. Try to position it (in a) better place for Saturday.”

After a respectable first half where the Gators led 16-13, they went scoreless in a second half where quarterback Anthony Richardson threw a pick and the Gators accumulated just 91 yards of total offense. Despite the poor play, Napier’s group has shown accountability across the whole roster.

“This team is sticking together,” Napier said. “I love how this group wants to do it for the team.”

After playing ranked teams in its first two games, Florida sets its sights on South Florida next week. The Gators will look to clean up things on the offensive end before jumping back into SEC play against a tough Tennessee team.

“We need to get consumed with improvement,” Napier said.
