    I don't think that was Ker but Mark Korff. Both were seniors in '84 and both were JC transfers but Korff was the hellraiser and was subsequently suspended for drop-kicking a Mercedes Benz.

    Looks like there are about 20 locations all in Central Florida, mostly concentrated around Tampa Bay area,, plus a few around Orlando, Daytona, Ocala, Gainesville, Sarasota and Ft Myers. They tried expansion through franchising in Texas, but that apparently didn't go so well.

    Pretty amazing for an ex-football player....who wasn't a well-known star.
    Junior Seau had a popular place in San Diego, but that ONE restaurant closed with a $78,000 loss.
    Grossing $62 million w/ 24 restaurants in a competitive food business is quite an accomplishment.

    Kerr was a JUCO transfer. I don't know if he signed for anyone straight out of high school. I remember reading something about him being very underweight for the position coming out of high school but ended up weighing 285 by the time he got to UF as a junior. There were rumors of roid use. He was very, very strong. Ironically, Lomas Brown was the last of the group to bench 400, but ended up having the best career at UF and one of the longest NFL careers of any Gator.

    They really do suck. They've tried to make a go of it up here in Chicago and are barely hanging in there.

    You are correct.
    Wikipedia apparently did not have it correct.

    Love, love LOVE that '84 team. That's the team that showed how good we could be. The Great Wall was simply the best OL in cfb history. Bar none. Lomas and Zimmerman got most of the press, but the move of Hinson to the G from DT and Ker beating out senior and two-year starter Scott Trimble (probably the best "6th man" any OL ever had) put the finishing touches on the line. And the undersized Phil Bromley was probably the best of them, though with his size, he had zero shot at the NFL.

    I could literally talk about that team all afternoon - starting with the OL, which is where it started. Two proofs of how good it was.....1) The line was awarded "player of the game" by ABC for the Auburn game - the only time that has ever happened.......2) David Williams was healthy, but redshirted.

    The best UF team ever, up to that time, and still one of the three best, after '08 and '96.

    Ma. Pouncey was as good as most of them. Not many guards are high draft picks.

    Used to go there all the time when they moved it from the golf course to 13th st. right next to Trader's South. That was before CJ's became the place to go.
