GAINESVILLE -- Well, we're back in Hogtown after a long day in Orlando covering the Gateway Center shooting. Scary stuff.
Friday was an eventful day for Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer, who was fined $30,000 for publicly questioning Southeastern Conference officials about a play during the Gators' win against Georgia. The SEC made an example out of Meyer, who on Wednesday told reporters during a conference call that Georgia linebacker Nick Williams should have been flagged for his cheap shot on quarterback Tim Tebow.
Meyer's fine seems a little harsh -- $30,000! -- but chances are we won't be hearing a single disparaging word about SEC officials for the rest of the season from league coaches. Should Meyer have been fined so severely for his comment?
The Gators are favored by 35 points today against Vanderbilt. Gator Clause's official prediction: Florida 38, Vanderbilt 10.
Hate to do it, but we have to end a long day with some unfortunate news. Safety Dorian Munroe of Miami is doubtful for Saturday's game with another knee injury, The Miami Herald learned on Friday (while driving to Orlando). We hope it's not the case, but it appears that Munroe might end his career at UF watching from the sidelines.
