    Anzalone had never-ending shoulder problems at UF and is still having them in th NFL. Great player when healthy but rarely is.

    I'm pretty sure a kid can take both a redshirt and petition for a Medical Redshirt. That how some stay on a roster for 6 years (Andre Debose)
    I had never heard Parker wanting a redshirt...he certainly didn't get one at Texas. But otherwise this is what I remembered. Always had the feeling that Williams preferred Florida and Rivers preferred Miami. The moment that I started hearing that they might go to different schools, UF suddenly cooled on Williams. Always seemed like we would take both as long as it was a package deal, but no way we wanted to end up with Williams and without Rivers.

    As far as Dumervil goes, I don't remember hearing his name tied to UF until August or so. Whether that's because we started seriously recruiting him, or because it's the first time he showed any interest in us, I just don't know.

    Hindsight is 20/20 but imagine if we had gotten Parker. We could have had a decent O-line. We might also never have discovered Trask. Funny how things work out sometimes.

    Can’t get this year back if it’s burnt no matter what the future holds.
