Florida coach Jim McElwain said having offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier call plays from the press box was a positive in the Tennessee game, and he will remain there.

“Yeah no doubt about it,” McElwain said Wednesday. “I thought there were some really good adjustments, especially going into the fourth quarter on some things. We’ll continue to work that way.

“We’ve got, plain and simple, to not turn the football over. Anytime you do that you’re stealing plays from yourself. I think somebody asked it the other day and part of that is you’re losing seven to 14 plays anytime you put it on the ground. It’s just something you can’t do.”
