GAINESVILLE -- How did Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin steal away recruit Nu'Keese Richardson from the Florida Gators? UF offensive lineman James Wilson has his own opinion. "They kidnapped him," Wilson joked on Sunday night after the Gators' first practice in preparation for Saturday's game against the Vols.
On Sunday, Wilson was the first UF player -- and probably the last -- to speak openly this week about his thoughts on a wild offseason between Florida and Tennessee, an offseason which included Kiffin's declaration that he was going to sing Rocky Top "all night long" after defeating Florida on Saturday.
"That quote ... that's big motivation for us," Wilson said. "We've just been counting down since workouts. We've got a sign in the weight room that says how many days until Tennessee."
For the record: Six more days.
