When DeAndrew was injured against WVU he had 6 catches and Amari had 9 at the time.
Blake is running what he is allowed to run, and that plan is to put the ball into the hands of the best receiver in college football right now. As the season progresses Blake will be allowed to do more, provided h...

Yeah I had a few friends (in state and OOS) who decided between UF and UA for academic scholarships. There's a reason Bama has so many National Merit Scho...

They really made recruiting OOS students a big priority since state funding has been slashed for colleges over the last decade and OOS tuition is significantly higher. There are a TON from Texas....

[quote]I don't care what the stadium is called as long as the team gets a boatload of cash out of the sponsor.[/quote]
This. That is one of the big reasons they are moving. They need the control of a stadium (and the cash that comes with it) to try and make up for the pathetic 20 year TV contract...

.5 quarters less. Well, except Florida (cancelled game) and Georgia/Auburn, which already have taken bye weeks.
