GAINESVILLE -- In glancing over the Gators' official 2008 online roster today, Gator Clause noticed something very interesting. Mike Pouncey has apparently been changed back to a defensive lineman. See for yourself. CLICK THE LINK!
Mike Pouncey filled in at defensive tackle last season when Javier Estopinan went down with an ACL injury. The original plan was for Mike Pouncey to rejoin his brother Maurkice on the offensive line this season. Mike Pouncey is listed as an offensive lineman in the Gators' recently released 2008 media guide. If you believe the Gators' OFFICIAL roster on its OFFICIAL website, then Mike is now moving BACK to defense. This raises several questions:
1. Is the website wrong? UF officials haven't texted me back yet about Mike Pouncey's current status. It's probably just a clerical error but let's pretend, for fun, that Pouncey is moving back to defense.
2. Does this mean Torrey Davis is in the doghouse again?
3. Is Ronnie Wilson rejoining the team as an offensive lineman? Wilson, who was kicked off the team for one year, has been enrolled at UF since the fall semester. He's not on scholarship but he could conceivably make the team as a walk-on.
4. Who's going to start at offensive guard? James Wilson, Carl Johnson...perhaps Joey Sorrentino.
