Billy Napier has brought plenty of coaching strategies to Florida, from his staff size to playing time. He explained how playing time will become a factor this week against Utah.

“I think one of our philosophies is we play a lot of players,” Napier said on the SEC coaches media teleconference. “I think you’re going to see a lot of rotational players. … I would say that it’s probably easier to talk about the positions that aren’t rotational and not in competition. One of the good things about our team is we have a good group of veterans, but we have a lot of inexperienced players who are going to be competing throughout the year.”

Much has been made about the heat and humidity for Utah traveling to Gainesville, and Napier weighed in about it.

“Heck, it might be a beautiful night in The Swamp,” he said. “There might not be any heat or humidity. … I think execution will ultimately win the game. … It’s part of the gig at the University of Florida, but our focus is on our preparation. We don’t control the weather.”

As for Utah, there’s plenty of reasons why the Utes are one of the best teams in the country.

“When you think about a team that’s ranked 7th in the country that won its conference championship pretty easily, they have a lot of experienced players … quarterback being at the top of that list,” Napier said.
