I have to say the people running Saturday Down South have done a fine job developing a reputation for top notch satirical work. Clever satire is hard to pull off, but here’s an excellent example of the genre.
I mean, how snarky is it to bury the lede in a piece entitled “How Florida closed the gap on Georgia and Alabama with a strong Signing Day finish”?
For the first time since the inception of recruiting rankings, Florida’s football roster will lack a 5-star recruit in the 2019 season.
Still, the Gators penned 17 blue-chip recruits (4- or 5-stars), a number only exceeded nationally by Alabama (25), Georgia (22) and Penn State (18).
Closing the gap by losing ground with elite prospect signings is sarcasm I can only dream of pulling off.
Oh, wait… you mean he was serious about that? I guess his bio should have tipped me off:
