Florida released its first depth chart of the season, followed by the typical Pavlovian responses of jammed up radio talk show lines and bloated internet blogging (pot, kettle, black) with experts who know better than our coaches proclaiming why Moses Jenkins should be starting over Jeremy Brown.
For the record, Bourbon Meyer loves Jeremy Brown.
Of note, Omarius Hines is listed as the starting tight end, a thought that frankly has us giddy. On the flip side, we are not giddy about the lack of depth at receiver and have grave concerns the position is going to continue to cause us much grief.
Go study up, just four days until the opener.
