Florida's Gator Nation Would Be In Top 10 Of 2012 Olympics Medal Count

Part of why I'll be scarce over here for the next two weeks: I'm helping out with a lot of SB Nation's Olympics coverage. In this commentary, I try to outline how easy it is to get stats about Florida's medal count wrong, and how GatorZone's tricky accounting is inflating the numbers. Also, again: I'm really sorry about unleashing that "If UF were a country, it'd be fifth" stat. You don't know how much it pains me to see people continuing to tweet it, especially now that it's really wrong.
