“We’d sure like to have him back, but you never know.”

Man, if you can’t get healthy playing only once in the three weeks leading up to the Georgia game, when can you?

You can’t spell shitstorm without… well…

If you think it’s a trifle sad South Carolina can’t make a decision about what to do with the Georgia game, make sure you check out what’s going on to our south, where nobody in the state of Florida seems to know how to handle Saturday’s game with LSU.

The CliffsNotes version can be told in three tweets.

Playing the Katrina card?  Strong.



Thanks, Obama!

Dan Mullen, throwing shade.

Well played, sir.

Not far enough.

We all know an AD who has no problem with Jeremy Foley.

That’s so Gators.

My favorite two tweets today:

Clearly, Huntley Johnson needs to open a multi-state practice.

Looking for the perfect Gator

Although Jeremy Foley is scheduled to leave his position at month’s end, Florida still hasn’t hired his replacement.  This, despite the fact that the school has been interviewing prospects most of the summer.  Why the delay?  Welp,

In conversations with people familiar with the matter, one potential issue has come up several times: Foley’s continued presence at Florida in an emeritus position. Essentially, some higher-profile athletics directors who might have been interested in the job aren’t sure about the dynamics of having Foley, who was credited for much of Florida’s athletics success during his 25-year run, right down the hall…

Florida remains focused on hiring a sitting athletics director, likely one within the Power Five.

I can think of at least one P5 sitting athletics director who’s accustomed to working with Foley right down the hall.

Good thing Florida is playing its usual tough opener…

Jim McElwain has suspended two key players immediately from practice and team activities.

The Florida coach announced Wednesday that All-American cornerback Jalen Tabor and tight end C’yontai Lewis will not play in the season opener on Sept. 3 against UMass.

“Both C’yontai and Jalen will not be involved with the team or practice due to behavior that is not acceptable,” McElwain said. “By no means are these bad guys and yet consequences have been handed down. We will not look the other way when it comes to breaking of team policies.

“I want to echo what I said earlier, these are both fine young men who will learn and be stronger from their actions. They will also be suspended for the first game. There are life lessons in everything we do. We will be better because of it and no one person is bigger than the Florida Gators.”

Man, that’s gonna shave at least a couple of points off the spread, right?

Speaking of no one person being bigger than the Florida Gators, would this be the appropriate time to mention that this isn’t Tabor’s first suspension rodeo?


UPDATE:  At least it’s for something different.
