AND ONE NOTE ABOUT JIM MCELWAIN'S LACK OF FORMAL CLOTHING

ONE VERY FLORIDA GATORS THING ABOUT THIS RECRUITING CLASS

It includes McArthur Burnett, a running back and early enrollee. He came in as a three-star, but whatever, there are so many more important things about him to talk about than his recruiting ranking. These things, in order of importance for being a Florida Gator:

  1. He got flagged on multiple occasions for flipping into the endzone on TDs in high school.
  2. He is from Pahokee, aka Muck City, and is a first-rate rabbit chaser.
  3. His nickname is "Nut-nut."

Clearly, even if he does not play a down, he is a strong indicator of this team's overall positive Florida-ness.

ANOTHER VERY FLORIDA GATORS THING ABOUT THE STAFF THAT GOT THIS RECRUITING CLASS

Our new DB coach, Torrian Gray, believes in thrift and economy so much he uses movie theaters for free refills. He's also a good recruiter, but it's just as important for Florida coaches to save money where they can.

NOTE: coach still has difficulty wearing ties and socks. Extremely Floridian and largely positive. Disregard the jacket. Repeat: DISREGARD THE JACKET.
