Muschamp: Florida needs to change state of mind

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Will Muschamp has labeled his team "fragile," and not because of all those season-ending injuries.

Muschamp says the Gators, who have lost four consecutive games, have a woe-is-me mentality that's affecting the way they play.

If things go wrong early, problems tend to snowball. It happened in losses against Missouri, Georgia and Vanderbilt. The Gators trailed 13-3 at halftime against the Tigers, were down 23-3 at the break against the Bulldogs and fell behind 24-3 against the Commodores on Saturday.

Muschamp says: "We need to learn to overcome our circumstances, and that's something we have a hard time doing as far as a slow start, a turnover and overcoming those situations. It's my job to get it right, and that's what we're working on."
