Gators_Kyle_Christy_2013GAINESVILLE -- In 2012, Kyle Christy was an All-American and Ray Guy Award finalist. Now hes Floridas second-string punter. After weeks of poor production, the junior has been officially benched in favor of freshman Johnny Townsend.

We need to make a change there, said coach Will Muschamp, who attributed Christys issues to mental fatigue.

Its very frustrating, as much for him as it is for anyone, Muschamp said. Its not from a lack of work or a lack of trying to get things right. Theres no question about that. Its just a matter of him working through this and us continuing to try and search for answers.
