Good pull, jo. I wonder what Urban's reasoning is for doing that...

Wow, as good as Will Hill appears to be, hard to imagine him beating out the team leader in interceptions from a year ago.

Ahmad Black must be supported. He was amongst teh men last year. Hill must be awfully good.

this is insane if true...you gotta get will hill on the field but to sit ahmad. WOW.

Called the Hill start near the end of last season.

Also, our 2nd team guys really aren't 2nd team...more like 1st team B. To have two guys as talented as Hill and Black and be able to rotate them for fresh legs on every play is going to be amazing.

Besides, it doesn't mean that Hill has won a starting position for the end of the season. We all know how it works at UF...

Ahhhhh SC v. NCst.

The shakes are easing.

thanks for the unofficial depth chart

a couple of observations and questions

No mention of Okine or Herbert along the DL.
Who is the 12th linemen that the coaches allegedly trust enough to play in the rotation?

Should we expect to see Cooper in the Kestahn Moore role as the other deep man (blocker) with Brandon James?

From last nights Oregon game

I can't believe how badly South Carolina, NC State and Oregon played on Thursday. Good thing I didn't rank these teams in our special section top 25. Had Boise State at No.25.



I just watched that YouTube video. I must have passed out before all that happened. That Oregon running back needed a sedative. I blame those ridiculous uniforms. Feathers on the shoulder pads? Come on, Nike.


I'm w/ you Goody!

All white with feathers?? You would think that Nike could design a better uniform. Almost as bad as that blue field.

Ahmad has a goin injury last week, that the reason.

I called it a night after game one and missed the fisticuffs.

Bad decision making drives Spurrier nuts and Garcia does just that. You just know SOS has reamed that kid a million times.

Oregon Ducks, Worst..... Uni's.... EVER

Nice article with Ken Dorsey Jo! Way to represent!!

Hi Alan!

Thanks. It was my new weekly national football column. My mug was in the paper but apparently it hasn't made it to the website yet.


Dorsey is coaching QB's at Lakewood Ranch HS. He's originally from California, but he knows where the talent is! I figure he'll be a position coach for one of the "Big 4" in the next couple of years.

Did you get to meet him, or talk to him on the phone? There's a lot of folks who think he'll make an awesome coach.

Phone. Says he likes coaching. We'll see. He's still pretty young.
