Time to move past wishing for Dalembert. Not in the Heat plans. The Heat can't afford him. Team can only offer minimum salaries at this point. (Or a trade, but that's not happening either.) -joe ______________________________________________ like pittman, has to get into shape... curry could help... joel, will do wat he does... dalembert is the other center we need to sign....

Curry sat out due to soreness (hip flexor). Same for Battier. ---------------------------------------------- Looks to me we should expect a 3-headed center season. Pitt had his moments...where the heck is Curry ? Posted by: RP | Monday, December 19, 2011 at 08:12 AM

Well, they already had one general there. Never underestimate your opponent, young grasshoppers. -jo-

Don't you mean weird science? I don't think it's very hard to understand why Kiffin long term at UT would have been a good for Florida. Would you rather want Gomer Pyle leading your archenemy's army or General Patton? -jo-

Bill, I was referring to UF's base defense, 4-3. -jo-

What's he got left to prove? He's started for three seasons and won a title. Just because he never got as much hype as other players doesn't mean he isn't as good and it's not like he needs more playing time. It's the right more, in my opinion. Anytime you can make money doing what you love, you do it. -jo-

Ahmad Black is the best tackler on the team and his experience will be invaluable next season for a young defense. He'll be playing one of the safety positions. -jo-

Alan M., Elam is set to arrive in Gainesville tonight...unless, of course, he changes his mind. (J/K) -jo-

Alan M., Missed that figure when updating the post. Will update now. Thanks. Current class refers to the 2009 freshman class. Next class refers to 2010. -jo-

You are correct, sir. Hobbs is gone. How did I forget about the team genius? Make that 63 returning players and currently 22 available scholarships. -jo-

Atlanta, excellent point. Don't be a stranger to the blog! UF will definitely need tight ends next season if they're going to run more of a pro-style offense. That was a great touchdown reception in the all-star game. -jo-

Question: Does Florida defeat Alabama in the SEC championship game with Torrey Davis and Carlos Dunlap starting along the defensive line? -jo-

Per the 2009-2010 NCAA Division I Manuel... 15.5.6.3.2 Recruited Student-Athlete Entering after Fall Term, Aided in First Year. [FBS/FCS] A student-athlete recruited by the awarding institution who enters after the first term of the academic year and immediately receives institutional financial aid (based in any degree on athletics ability) shall be an initial counter for either the current academic year (if the institution’s annual limit has not been reached) or the next academic year. The student-athlete shall be included in the institution’s total counter limit during the academic year in which the aid was first received. -jo-

Adding more clarification to the question about signing a maximum of 28 players...Some of the Gators' early enrollees can count to the previous year's recruiting class if the previous year's recruiting class was under 25 and the total amount of scholarships for the team hasn't exceeded 85. Florida didn't hand out many scholarships last year but I'll have to check the total number before writing that UF can go over 25 on Feb. 3. Getting an accurate count on the scholarships is tough because UF isn't very forthcoming with that information and Meyer hands out scholarships to worthy walk-ons every year. -jo-

Alan M., The SEC put a cap on the number players who could sign with a school in a given year. That number is 28. The rule was put into place after Ole Miss signed 37 players last season. Ole Miss didn't give scholarships to 37 players. Hardly. Ole Miss just signed every non-qualifier in Mississippi and sent them to JUCO. SEC teams can sign 28 every year, but only a maximum of 25 from each class can be on scholarship when the fall semester rolls around. As a general rule, Florida only offers scholarships to players it knows will qualify. So don't expect Florida to sign over 25. -jo-

Landing McCartney should be the goal, in my opinion. He's better than Prater and from Miramar. If Dorsey de-commits, then go hard after Henderson. -jo-

To clear up any confusion, the Gators can sign as many as 28 (per new SEC rule) but can only give 25 scholarships (NCAA rule) per year. -jo-

OFF TOPIC: Going to see Daybreakers tonight. Any early reviews, yeah or nay? ON TOPIC: Who will Florida's final scholarship go to? Florida has 24 commitments and the NCAA max per year is 25. Of these three players, who would you rather land on National Signing Day: WR Ivan McCartney, LB Jordan Hicks or OL Seantrel Henderson? -jo-

If I had to make a guess, I'd say Sharrif Floyd will have the biggest impact. This guy is Torrey Davis but with a brain. -jo-

What about Mike Leach for OC? In reality, I don't think it would work. Leach doesn't have the personality to be an assistant. -jo-

Wellington, That's a great story. Thanks for relaying it. Nothing surpries me with Elam anymore. He and Urban are made for each other. HA! -jo-

GatorAlum, Where would you rank Brantley among the state's returning quarterbacks? He hasn't played a meaningful down of football in three years. We've all seen the growing pains Jacory Harris and Christian Ponder went through. Brantley is not Tebow. Don't expect this guy to win the Heisman in his first year as a starter. He's got talent, but it's probably going to take him time to adjust. Not hating, just trying to keep some perspective here. -jo-
