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.
