Florida's got one of the finest "biospheres" for college football, apparently. And the Gators get a chance for some revenge on ice against Missouri.
College football's "perfect biosphere"? I know this piece made a lot of people happy this week, because I saw it shared a few places by friends before I got to comment on it, but it's really facile analysis that posits weather as the most important part of building a football program, doesn't discuss revenue, barely mentions Bull Gators, and doesn't even mention Jeremy Foley. The WSJ's Sports section is improving by leaps and bounds (disclosure: I Internet-know and like many people who have written and write for it), but this was a bad misfire.

Robert Nkemdiche gives out troll bait like candy: There is a negative infinity chance that Nkemdiche comes to Florida, but the Gators got mentioned, and so the AJC's brutally trolly recruiting coverage gets another series of links. (Michael Carvell, Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
