Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks thinks Dan Mullen's offense is better suited for him, and he also said Mullen has helped him change his approach to playing quarterback. "My mentality last year was trying to make the big play and do all these things, and that's not the right mentality to have as a quarterback."

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

It's 92 degrees in Gainesville, Fla., and there's never any shortage of heat on the head football coach to get the program back to where the guy whose name is on the stadium once had it. But that's exactly the way Dan Mullen wants it.
