    Mercer has officially transferred to Jacksonville so there won't be any working her way back onto the team. Pamela Bejic is practicing with the team this summer which I thought was interesting. I figured she was just a body last year when we had so few players. She makes 13 this year though. I am interested to see if she is good enough to win some playing time.

    Heaed she was actually pretty good. I didn't think Mercer would be able to make it back.

    If I remember correctly she was involved in a crime, a burglary (?), and suspended from the team last season.

    Not surprising. She really let the team down last year. It is one thing to get in trouble in the offseason, but right in the middle of the season? Really? I was excited watching her and thinking the energy and determination she was showing was going to really pay off for the Gators, then the next thing I know she is off the team.

    I hope she can get her act straight and make something of herself. You don't get many 2nd chances in this world... hope she makes the most of hers.

    It did happen in the offseason - it just took Gainesville PD 6 months (or whatever it was) to arrest her. Better than the Tally PD I guess, but still... I'm kind of sad to see her gone but can't blame the staff at all for taking a longer view about what's good for the program. I hope it works out well for her at JU. Basketball-wise at least that should be a pretty good fit - she could certainly be an all-conference player at that level.

    In other former player news, I just noticed that Vicky McIntyre did a graduate transfer and will play this coming season as a redshirt senior at Oral Roberts. They are currently playing on a summer tour in Costa Rica. I do wonder why we never take summer tours - the extra preseason practice does really seem to help some teams.
