I’m sure I’ll be mocked by the usual suspects for raising this point again, but there’s just something different about the mindset of your new Florida Gators, ladies and gentlemen. Safety Matt Elam tells you something here:
“We’re predators. We’re looking to knock heads off or making people scared to run across the middle or do a post or run a sideline and see us coming,” Elam said. “We want to be the rude nation. People come in and we want them to be like, ‘Oh gosh, we might have a long night in The Swamp.’ Just being rude and making people afraid of us.
Granted, I don’t follow every word uttered by the orange and blue. But I don’t recall guys like Reggie Nelson talking like this.
When you’re wishing that you can make other teams fear you, what does that say about where your head is at now?
Jax is going to be mighty interesting this year.
