    Bummer. We are taking some real hits between Russell, Robinson and the credit card gang. I hope Mullen can shore things up. We were already way low on our numbers.

    I don't know if he is ever on this board but if so, I'd like to say that Randy, you are a true inspiration for those who have to deal with disappointment and adversity. My sincere hopes are that you move forward and find success in whatever career path you choose. Go Gators.

    My favorite recruit this cycle - horrible news for him, but hopefully he's got a solid UF academic career ahead of him.

    When I was in high school(2003 grad) you had to pay to get one to play. They're not expensive and a lot of kids could go to a chiropractor so they didn't have their balls fondled

    The typical high school sports physical doesn't compare to the testing that was performed on these players.

    It seems these issues are never caught at the HS level.
