Florida’s Easley Has High Expectations

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Gators senior defensive tackle Dominique Easley is not impressed.

He is not impressed at Florida leading the SEC and ranking third in the country in total defense, limiting opponents to 208.5 yards per game — or nearly five football fields fewer than Oregon’s offense (687 yards) rolled up against Tennessee.

He is not impressed that Florida leads the country in third-down defense, holding opponents to a measly 8.3 percent (2-for-24) on third-down conversions.

He is stressing perfection — or as close as you can get to the impossible — to his fellow defenders.

“Our goal is to not let an offense score, period,” Easley said. “In my life, I strive for perfection. If there is no perfection, there is no greatness. We’re supposed to be great.”
