Sorry this blog post is way late tonight. My computer freaked out in the middle of SEC media days and vomited all over the place. I couldn't log on to the Internet and then I had to run back to the hotel to write for tomorrow's paper! Totally stressful day...
HOOVER, Ala. -- Anyway, you didn't miss much. The biggest news out of the SEC media days was that Chris Rainey apparently beat Jeff Demps in a footrace. At least that's Meyer's story.
Rainey apparently challenged Demps to a race last week and the two settled the discussion like men. They went behind Springs Dormitory and raced a 40. Rainey "out-nudged" Demps according to Meyer. Tebow says there were a lot of false starts and that Rainey won't shut up about it now.
Of course, I'd be bragging too if I beat the fastest teenager in American track history. That's what they're calling Demps.
--Meyer says he plans to move a freshman from offense to defense to help at safety. I'm guessing T.J. Lawrence.
--Les Miles is boring.
--Meyer says that nine teams can win the SEC championship this season. Can anyone name the correct nine?
--Meyer says Percy is 80 to 90 percent healthy following his offseason heel surgery.
--Tebow has put on some weight since last season.
--Why does Les Miles come off as such a phony?
--Did anyone hear Tebow on the Dan Patrick Show? Good stuff. Here's the link. CLICK ME!
--Meyer says Will Hill and Ahmad Black are going to "battle" for a starting safety spot. Which one? If Hill is a starter, does that mean Major Wright moves to strong safety?
--Meyer said that Brandon Spikes' leadership this season is more important to the team's success than Tebow's leadership.
--Tebow said that 60 percent of the entire state will be in Gainesville the night of UF-UM.
--Meyer says that Kestahn Moore is the starter at running back. Do you agree? Should it be Rainey? Should it be Moody?
--Meyer says that the Gators' offensive coaches have devised plenty of plays that feature both tight ends: Aaron Hernandez and Cornelius Ingram. I'm excited about this formation. Am I the only one?
