Maybe it's a little of both...
On one hand is the U of Florida, which is 9-1 and has a shot at a national title. According to UF coach Urban Meyer:
"I've been a coach for 25 years and I've seen about three or four teams with great chemistry," Meyer said. "It's uncommon to have a team with great chemistry - unselfish play, guys that care about each other, guys that work each other in practice, guys that hang out together off the field and guys that have a little relentless effort."
Compare that to what's happening at the U of Washington, a team that's still looking for its first win of the season. As one player said recently:
"I look at the guys on the team and we've got really talented, athletic guys. We just didn't have that chemistry. You just can't have a lot of athletes running around out there and have a team."
