Florida defense sets up first Brantley TD

Posted by Adam Jacobi

UPDATE: Florida took 7-3 lead after Janoris Jenkins jumped a route for an interception and took it to the house.  Miami tried to fake a punt for the second time (they've already converted one) on the following drive and failed.  Gators took over in Redhawks territory and were able to capitalize for John Brantley's first career touchdown.  Brantley connected with Omarius Hines on a 10 yard touchdown on 3rd down.  Gators ahead 14-3.

Fourth-ranked Florida isn't doing much to justify their ranking today. While John Brantley has looked decent at times at quarterback, the Gators have looked alarmingly average on the offensive line. Worse, Florida has fumbled the ball twice in the first quarter, and Miami of Ohio leads 3-0.

The RedHawks aren't looking like world-beaters ei <script src="http://images.cbssports.com/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/themes/advanced/langs/en.js" type="text/javascript"></script> ther, and Miami threw an interception near midfield to give Florida great field position. Florida is moving the ball, but slowly. They're still likely to win, but Florida's play in the trenches has got to improve by the time the SEC schedule rolls around.

How Nike's new Pro Combat uni's help recruiting

Posted by Chip Patterson

Sure.  There is ton about Nike's new Pro Combat gear that makes perfect sense for the elite athlete.  It's light weight, it's durable, and thanks to new technologies a Nike Pro Combat uniform soaking wet is supposedly still lighter than a normal dry uniform.  

On Wednesday, Nike revealed the newest line of Pro Combat uniforms in college football.  The line will begin with ten schools, with the motto: "Ten Storied Programs, Ten Game-Changing Uniforms."

The ten schools to debut the uniforms in 2010 will be TCU, Alabama, Miami, West Virginia, Boise State, Oregon State, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Florida, and Virginia Tech.

But all the technology aside, let's get down to it: this is all about fashion, and fashion is just another tool in recruiting.

Face it, these jerseys are cool.  They look sleek, yet many of them (particularly Florida and Ohio State) have a throwback feel.  They utilize the "alternate colors" that have become so popular these days.  They are the kinds of jerseys that the players want to wear.

They are the kinds of jerseys that high school players want to wear too.  These are the programs that will be on nationally televised games, in front of millions of eyes.  Thousands of those eyes are the best high school football players in the nation, and those impressionable teenagers are absolutely going to think these new jerseys are cool.  

Which jersey is your favorite?  Let us know in the comments below.  Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing Virginia Tech bust out these new black uniforms on Monday against Boise State. (Photo Credits: Virginia Tech, Nike)
