YET ANOTHER SIGN OF IMPENDING FOOTBALL

New, 33 comments

We were stumbling around the room at 6:15 this a.m. when another sign of impending and awesome football stumbled across the CNN crawl as Sanjay Gupta told us all the bad things lead poisoning can do to you. (Why no one talks about all the upside of lead poisoning is yet another cheat the liberal MSM sells you on every day, slave!)

The crawl read:

PERCY HARVIN SAT OUT FLORIDA PRACTICE WITH ANKLE TENDONITIS, COACH URBAN MEYER SAYS ...

When CNN's giving you crawl on Harvin's wonky ankle, you know a rough beast is rising. Harvin's ankle seems to be a chronic inflammation thingy, meaning that it's tweaky, will continue to be tweaky, and may disappear overnight/haunt him the rest of his life. It must be the side effects of being so fast your foot actually adheres to the earth from the heat of it abrading the turf.

He suffered from it last season, too, so diving headfirst into the ditch of fan despair might not be the most logical thing for Florida fans. He did decently enough. We hear. You know, from, people. Football types.

Even if Harvin's ankle continues its codgery ways, Florida's got speed to burn--nay, incinerate. Andre Caldwell's a no-bullshit-wind-aided-Florida-State-clocked 4.3 runner, freshman Chris Rainey and Deonte Thompson both change weather patterns with sub 4.4. speed, and Brandon James, the discount Barry Sanders type caught purchasing local produce illicitly earlier this year, can run very, very quickly. Even if Harvin's not 100% for the year, there's a mess of mess for defensive coordinators to handle.
