GAINESVILLE -- Perhaps this stipulation should be spelled out on future applications for the University of Florida's Friday Night Lights football camps: Only Gator chomps are allowed in The Swamp. All other collegiate traditions will be banished.
That's exactly what happened on Friday when a Miami recruit was asked to leave the Gators' elite high school football camp. Tavadis Glenn of Jacksonville gestured the University of Miami's equivalent of a Gator chomp -- the 'U' sign -- during a football drill and was the told to leave by a Florida assistant coach. The University of Florida later said that Glenn was asked to leave for safety reasons.
Does anyone have a problem with this? Is recruiting ridiculous?
