Will Florida ever get a full season out of Harvin?

GAINESVILLE -- Looks like Percy Harvin might need surgery to correct his chronic heel injury. This is unfortunate news for Harvin, expected to be one of the nation's biggest offensive threats in 2008.

Hopefully Florida's doctors caught the problem in time to have Harvin back to full health by the fall. Florida coach Urban Meyer said on Monday that Harvin should be back to by fall practice. Here's what I'm wondering: Will Florida ever get a full season out of Harvin?

The Gators haven't had Harvin at full strength since he arrived in Gainesville. That's the message Meyer sent on Monday when he said Harvin's heel injury started in high school. Harvin was limited with an ankle injury in 2006 and he missed two games in 2007 with migraine headaches.

Now Harvin might need surgery to correct what Meyer called a "significant" injury caused by "overuse." The problem has led to knee and hip discomfort, according to Meyer. It's a good thing for the Gators that back-ups Chris Rainey and Deonte Thompson are performing well in spring practice. Those two players might get more reps in the fall if Harvin needs a rest.

Hell yeah its overuse, I blame Meyer, use your running backs jackass!

It does seem like he is overused, don't you guys have a RB from USC? Rainey is also a good prospect. Hope Harvin is able to recover and make it back.

Not all is well in paradise. In two years Meyer has burned Harvin out by having him play rB-wide receiver in his funky offense. The next causality will be Tebow. Matt Patchan wants out of his scholarship, and many players are fleeing the ship like rats.

Meyers O is starting to take it's toll, we need to make changes or Tebow will be hurt next. The talent level is gradually falling due to this college style O (Tick Plays, QB is the Leading Rusher?). You don't send players to the pro's with this style and if you don't send players to the pro's then you won't get great players.

Why does Patchan want out? He hasn't even gotten on campus, no? Someone needs to go help his mom cook or something.



Sept 6th... The Canes are going to shock the college football world and continue their current winning streak against Urban Buyer and the Criminal Gators (8 arrests last year)
