GAINESVILLE -- So, I've been away. Sorry, but I'm back.
The editorial board at Gator Clause was busy, busy, busy this week writing all the copy for our football special section, which hits news stands in a couple of weeks. Not only am I covering the Gators this season, but I'm Miami Herald's national football columnist. I love the new job, but it's a bunch of work (if you want to call it that.)
Anyway, I was pickingThe Herald's preseason Top 25 -- yes, UF is No.1 -- and trying to figure out where to put Illinois ... when it hit me. Man, Florida sure could use Jarred Fayson this season. Looking back, I bet coach Urban Meyer wishes he could have ironed out that whole fiasco a little differently.
