"Can Joe Gamble Better Than a Third Grader?" Sounds pretty controversial but I like it! Maybe I should just pick against an animal at Zoo Miami. Joe vs. the Golden Lion Tamarins. I'll definitely be leaning on you for advice this season, Mr. Pimple. Thanks for all the help! http://www.miamimetrozoo.com/animals-and-attractions.asp?Id=524&parentId=41&rootId=2 -jo-

Moody/Gillislee will still get their carries. Someone has to account for Tebow's rugged production. -jo-

The running backs have been raving about RB coach Stan Drayton. The goal for those guys is to produce a 1,000-yard rusher. Moody will likely get the first shake at being the power back but Mike Gillislee isn't far behind. In fact, some on this blog would probably argue that Gillislee is better. My opinion, they're both good enough to get the job done because UF's offensive line is shaping up to be a powerful force this season. That, more than anything, should help the Gators' offense make a smooth transition from Tim Tebow's Thundercat Offense to the version that will develop around John Brantley. Urban Meyer and Steve Addazio are hoping that the combination of Chris Rainey and Andre Debose at the hybrid H-back position create the kind of offensive mismatches that allowed Aaron Hernandez to have such a big season in 2009. The offense will be adapted around those guys, so (just guessing here) expect to see plenty of speed options and misdirection hitch routes. -jo-

Welcome back to the blog Gator Dude... Keep in mind, guys, that this is the two-deep depth chart heading INTO fall camp. Things will change. They always do... Just finished shooting a video piece for MiamiHerald.com and Gator Clause inside The Swamp. So hot in Hogtown today! Excited about the video, although I'll probably look pretty amateurish until I get the hang of being on camera. We'll be producing a video for Gator Clause after every game this season. -jo-

No, never captured the bike thief. Damn you, bike thief! I put three-deep at defensive tackle because those guys rotate so much. Grueling positions, those. -jo-

Well, I guess I'm thinking about point spreads today because I just learned I'm writing a Friday feature this football season called "Joe vs. The Pro" for the paper. Basically, it's going to be me picking games against a professional gambler in Miami. I've have to bone up on my picks! -jo-

Vito, Just to be clear here, I'm saying Alabama will be favored by three points to defeat Florida at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Oct. 2. That's my early line, anyway. You think Alabama should be favored by more? -jo-

Went by the practice field before practice this morning (5:30 a.m.) to see if Mike Pouncey was dressed out and practicing with the team. Pouncey walked to the practice field with Urban Meyer in his practice uniform. Guards were walking around the practice facility telling people to leave, so I couldn't stay...Matt Patchan looked ready to go...More later after player interviews at 11 a.m. Check back! -jo-

Steven "Party Much?" Wilks and T.J. "Wild Man" Pridemore will be the fullbacks this season. They're both pretty good. -jo-

Just going by the old adage that it's hard to beat a team twice in the same year. Picking Florida late in the season is based on John Brantley's upside and Florida's potential on defense more than anything. With the right team chemistry, Florida could make a run late. -jo-

Just to clarify for some people: From a romantic sense I think Miami should join the SEC if college football goes the way of the mega-conferences. This likely will not happen for political reasons inside the state of Florida. UF would like to keep its thumb on Miami and, UF thinks, keeping UM out of the SEC will keep UM down. Similar to Florida football politics, Texas football politics could potentially land both Texas and Texas A&M in either the Pac-10 or SEC. See, Texas believes it currently has its thumb on Texas A&M. That's why Texas wants Texas A&M to join the Pac-10. If Texas A&M branches out on its own and joins the SEC, then Texas A&M has the potential to outgrow Texas. Kids in Texas could have the option of staying in Texas AND playing in the high-profile SEC. If Texas is smart, they'll see this coming and join the SEC as well. -jo-

I can't believe that apologist Gator sportswriters like JG are as obnoxious as other Gator fans. Posted by: The Coach | June 10, 2010 at 07:33 AM ____________________________________________________________________ Gator apologist? Hardly, Coach. The SEC is the most powerful conference in college football. UF is only a small fraction of that equation. Miami will remain strong if it doesn't join the SEC, but it will make more money if it does. -jo-

Goodman: "While esophageal spasms sounds like more damage control..." Now, in addition to your smarmy, sarcastic persona as a "columnist", you are a doctor and consumate conspiracy theorist. I had severe chest pains from esophageal spasms, and until I was properly diagnosed I was afraid that I was experiencing the onset of several heart attacks. Would you please sexually harass a fellow employee or otherwise do something to get fired from the Herald so that "perhaps" your incompetent sports editor might replace you as the Gator beat writer and blogger. They say that nobody is perfect, but you do a wonderful imitation of being the "perfect" ass. Posted by: Ben Hendricks | June 02, 2010 at 12:15 PM ________________________________________________ Strong post, Ben. I like your style. You're right, I could have written this blog without the opinion ... been then, this is a blog. No sense in writing the same thing in the blog and the paper. I have the option of tossing in a few opinions on the blog, so that's what I do. Some people agree and others don't. That's kinda the point. -jo-

UF trained Doctor here, in response to your comment: "I have no idea what esophageal spasms has to do with one's heart" It is quite obvious that you have no idea, so I will try to explain. Esophageal spasm is not a joke. It can be a very painful condition that creates chest pain very similar to that from a heart attack. It is also not a simple diagnosis to make so many people with the condition at first are treated as if their pain is cardiac in origin. I promise if you suddenly started having this pain you would be very worried that you were having a heart attack. I feel that this is actually a quite reasonable medical explanation for the strange series of events that we have seen with Urban over the past few months.....He was having chest pain and thought it was his heart so he got scared and wanted to prioritize family. When he subsequently was acurately diagnosed and treated appropriately he felt better and realized he had jumped the gun on the whole retirement thing. Posted by: Doc | June 02, 2010 at 07:10 AM _______________________________________________ Doc, Did you just point out that I pointed out that I wasn't a doctor?...Quite doctorish of you. While I am truly sympathetic of Meyer's heart burn, there is obviously much more to this story. For starters, why did it take him five months to admit it? -jo-
