This wonderful email greeted me this morning while I was drinking a nice cup of coffee...

You have a job and you call a college kid poor and stupid? And if ya want so bad to get back at the Gators for some reason why don't you show up 9/6 and take the [rhymes with "glass"] whooping like a man.
RESPONSE FROM THIS BLOG'S AUTHOR: OK, folks. Let's just get one thing straight. Stupid people graduate from college, too. Take me, for example. That's the point I was trying to make at the end of the Maurkice Pouncey blog post. All college kids drink beer. (OK, not Tebow.)
On to another point: Contrary to popular opinion, I don't want to "get back at the Gators." This is absurd. I'm a reporter and reporters check the public records of the people they cover. I cover the Florida Gators. That's part of the job. Rest assured that Maurkice Pouncey's open container citation, unfortunately, is probably not the only bad news I'm going to have to write about this season. Good things happen, I write about it. Less than good things happen, I write about it. Laws get broken, I write about it. I write about it all. That's the gig.
Look at it this way. If I uncovered information and didn't write about it, then what kind of reporter would I be? Answer: An unemployed reporter.
