Florida linebacker David Reese called out some of his teammates for essentially quitting during the Gators' blowout loss to Missouri Tigers on Saturday.

"It's sometimes disappointing when everybody doesn't want to come together and just play for each other," Reese said after the 45-16 shellacking. "That's sad to see. We've still got a lot to play for. Me personally and our defense we want to play for those guys. We can't have appearances like we just had today. That's unacceptable."

Florida's blowout loss came less than a week after head coach Jim McElwain and the university mutually decided to part ways following a week of controversy surrounding McElwain's claims of family members and players receiving death threats.

Defensive coordinator Randy Shannon was named interim coach and Notre Dame graduate transfer Malik Zaire replaced embattled starter Feleipe Franks at quarterback, but little changed for the Gators.
