GAINESVILLE -- Torrey Davis wasn't at practice today, wasn't on the roster and appears to be academically ineligible. Florida coach Urban Meyer said on Monday after practice that there is no timetable for Davis' return.
It seems like just yesterday that everybody (except me) was writing about how hard Davis worked to get into Florida, and blah, blah, blah. Yeah, right.
--Safety Bryan Thomas wasn't on the roster and didn't practice today because of the minor surgery we've been talking about for a few weeks on Gator Clause. He had a cyst removed from his knee.
--The Gators had a nice crowd this afternoon. I'd estimate the number of fans at about 400 and the number of Internet fan website reporters at 15,000.
--By the way, Ronnie Wilson has his old number, 70.
--Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson native Moses Jenkins looks great at cornerback.
--Lorenzo Edwards has officially moved to strong-side linebacker. Told you guys, the coaches couldn't afford to keep him out of the line-up. HA!
--South Miami alum Javier Estopinan told me that his knee is near 100 percent. Javy looked impressive leading the defense today.
--Back-up QB Cameron Newton's passes were all over the place. Up, down, anywhere except where they're supposed to be.
--Chris Rainey is the funniest guy on the team. He held court for about five minutes with reporters after practice. He said he beat Jeffrey Demps TWICE in the 40-yard dash in the previous weeks. Rainey's quote: "Undefeated in the skreets!"
--Rainey is 2-0 all-time against Demps in the 40 but his record is 1-1 against Percy.
--A New York Giants just left practice and I asked him if he saw any talent. He said, "Not this year."
--Major Wright spoke with reporters for about three minutes. He didn't say much but I thought it was pretty funny that he called Will Hill a kid, referring to Hill's understanding of college football so far.
