Let’s get the tough part out of the way. We reported that Jay-Nard Bostwick was among five Florida players suspended for game one against Toledo. It turns out that the information was correct on the other players, but inaccurate regarding Bostwick and for that, Gator Country apologizes to Mr. Bostwick, his family and Will Muschamp and the Florida coaching staff.
Gator Country has a long history of breaking stories and a policy of checking and double checking the facts before the story is run, a policy that dates back to 2004. In this case, Gator Country received information Thursday night that players would be suspended for game one. By the time the story was run on Friday, multiple sources were contacted and they confirmed the accuracy of the information. The sources that were used were proven and reliable, but again, the information they provided about Bostwick was not accurate.
Again, we apologize for the inaccuracy of our report and for any embarrassment that it has caused Jay-Nard Bostwick and his family. It was never our intention to do anything except report the news factually. When we are wrong, we admit it. In this case, we were certainly wrong about Jay-Nard Bostwick.
