...PS: Latest "btw" is an update on what I THOUGHT sounded like a bogus charge all along, that pot-charge on Purifoy has been dropped (exactly as I predicted) for "lack of evidence". I mean GEEZ, he was sitting in the back seat of a car in which a few GRAMS of cannabis were found tucked down in a seat-crack (not even where he was sitting, it turns out), and out of 5 people in the vehicle, the one UF football team-member there is the only one charged? The UPD clearly targets players with big pub in mind...This time it's the GPD waving the "fat old lazy, corrupt and swaggering-red-neck"-flag. Ya think there may be some problems with the local police dept's, on- AND off-campus? This sort-of-thing happens ALL-THE-TIME with the UPD, after all, and for the majority of us who've long since moved elsewhere, clicking on some of the "in other news"-topic-headlines, for-eg. at the bottom of GainsevilleSun.com Gator columns, yields a lot of news of late about recent high-profile examples of crime, corruption and general disgrace among officers and deputies of the GPD and County Sheriff's offices as well. Going after the UF football team in order to rationalize their own problems and rampant bad-apples, to somehow move the spotlight of bad publicity from themselves, was not going to work with most locals, almost uniformly loyal Gator fans FIRST...If anything, it was always likely to backfire in mounting resentment of both its shallow sleaziness AND its obviously self-serving hypocrisy--which by all accounts is exactly what is occurring.
The good-news at least is that we can stop worrying about any danger of our not having the talented and excitingly versatile Purifoy fully available throughout the spring, summer, and ready, willing and cleared-to-go come the fall--especially important in the prospective "experiment" with him at receiver. That could turn out to be another link--and a crazy fun one at that--in the "pull-out-all-the-stops" effort to upgrade the WR-position, and a vastly expanded array of choices for Pease-by-proxy-onfield-via-Driskel to allow our offense to accomplish much more, in all kinds of creatively varied ways, with the passing game in 2013.

OT Roderick Johnson's spot in the 2013 class is in danger due to grades and SAT scores. The word on the street is that if he does not boost his scores up by the summer, the Gators will have to retract their offer. Currently, Johnson is in special classes to help with his academics, but these classes get expensive if he has to repeat anything in the summer.

DT Jarran Reed, the JUCO transfer from East Mississippi Community College that the Gators snagged last minute in the 2013 class, is not academically eligible to transfer to Florida in 2013. He might come back to the Gators for the 2014 class.
