Percy, Spikes didn't show up to media day

FOLKS, DON'T FORGET TO SEND A LINK TO C.I.'S GET-WELL CARD TO ALL YOUR GATOR FRIENDS...SIX DAYS LEFT UNTIL I GIVE C.I. THE CARD!

GAINESVILLE -- Florida's annual preseason media day was this morning. It's when all the reporters from around the state (and some from around the country) travel to Gainesville to interview the Gators' players. It's really a shame that two of the team's most important players decided not to show.

Percy Harvin was nowhere to be seen and neither was Brandon Spikes. Florida's official statement as to why these players skipped out: No clue.

I've got a suggestion. Maybe it's because a Sports Illustrated photographer wasn't there. No Erin Andrews, then no Percy, right?

Not cool.

Let the speculation begin, I guess. What else are reporters supposed to write about today? Percy Harvin, the Heisman Trophy candidate who is slow to recover from offseason heel surgery, can't even meet the press? (Must be pretty bad.) Spikes can't either?

Well, at least we know Tim Tebow is an accountable team leader. Tebow spoke at length with reporters today. In other words, Percy didn't show and Tebow was stuck answering questions about why his best receiver isn't practicing right now.

I don't know much about Percy's situation (He's hurt) but I do know this: Don't expect Percy or Spikes to be around next year for media day either.

(Check back later for more from media day, including behind-the-scenes pictures of Florida's new weight room and coaches' offices.)

Eh.

I don't think you can necessarily read anything into it. Sucks for you as a reporter though I realize.

If you were 19 years old you'd probably rather be just about anywhere else than being "pressed" by a nosy reporter you didn't want to talk to in the first place.

If it wasn't for "nosy" reporters, Gaytorbud...you wouldn't have sports blogs and sources of information to post your stupid comments on.

AK-47,

Nosy reporters? I think my editor would call that "redundant." I'm a nosy guy. I keep tabs. That's part of what I do. It's not only a tenet of journalism it's in The Miami Herald's mission statement.
