This is going to be a real challenge for the four-letter. Does it go with Brett Favre or Aaron Hernandez?

As you know by now, Favre has been jammed down our throats like Alien laying her eggs. But what does ESPN do about Hernandez, a Florida tight end and native son of Bristol, Conn.? Now that Favre has been traded maybe Hernandez shoots to the top of the overkill charts.

Florida was settle for a capable tight end. Hernandez, a sophomore, just got a higher profile when Florida teammate Cornelius Ingram went down with a torn left ACL. It looks like Ingram's season -- and possibly career -- is over. Too bad because Ingram was one of the best tight ends in the country and part of a top receiving corps.

But if there is a place where Florida can afford a major injury this is it. Florida's offense was/still is loaded. What Florida will lose is experience and depth, not the SEC. Yet. Hernandez was the No. 1 rated tight end by a couple of services coming out of Chris Berman Tech. Oh wait, no, that was Bristol Central.

The kid had a bright future just not this quick. He started three games in '07 catching nine passes for 151 yards. His brother D.J. is a starting receiver at UConn (30 catches, 404 yards last season).

This also bumps up redshirt senior Tate Casey. Casey is more of the blocking type. You might remember him from 2006 when he caught the famous jump pass from Tim Tebow against LSU.

SI hit my mailbox today. Florida is one of the regional covers. It's obvious the jinx has hit early.

In your two title seasons, you lost to LSU in 06 and you lost to FSU in 1996 only to get a BS second chance in the bowl game... You might wanna check your sources before you go typing off you jackass!

You might want to check your sources loudmouth.

Florida lost to Auburn in 06 not LSU.

The Gators have beaten FSU 4 straight. Even in 2005 Florida was the #5 SEC team yet still beat ACC Champ FSU.

Class dismissed.

Well, Mr. FSU fan, the proof is in the pudding, and as long as your team keeps Bowden around and that poor excuse of a OC, you'll never crack the top 5 again, much less make it to the big show.....

I was refering to Meyer, not the Gators. He was bashing coach Meyer. He went undefeated with Utah.

Sorry ufgaytor I don't keep up with exactly who you loose to every year, I just remember laughing a whole bunch after watching that game that involved the gaytors loosing.  I appreciate you correcting me.  As far as the whole Meyer thing, my bad.  I was skimming the posts and that caught my attention so I decided to address it.  So don't come at me with your typical florida state fan bs.  And did you even go to UF or have any relation to anyone who has, or are you one of the many fans that pop out of the wood works the minute a team starts doing good??   cuz i sure as hell have been seeing a lot more fans as of late....  If you are a true UF fan than you are probably circle jerking with all your friends with a picture of meyer and tebow in the middle.  Enjoy yourself!

Over-rated program? Are you serious? Figures you are a Criminole fan. Enjoy having all that Gator talent on defense rooting for your Jaguars. Over-rated. Bobby Bowden is over-rated in his old age. He needs to retire.
