Sorry for the missing Theater of Operations posts this week. I was involved in a car crash (I'm mostly fine, but the recovery time was a little longer than expected)... so I should be fully operational on Monday. And of course I need a new car now. Sadness.

7. Florida: The Gators had a tricky opening month for a young team that's led by a sophomore QB (Jeff Driskel). Already Florida's had back-to-back road tests in very hostile territory -- at Texas A&M and then at Tennessee. Driskel has responded well, throwing just one INT while completing 70 percent of his passes. Bruce Feldman's Top 10 surprises of the year thus far. Yes, the Gators place at No. 7 behind the likes of Nevada's running back, the Sun Belt Conference and something about Notre Dame. (Via CBS Sports)

Notes: Kentucky received $475,000 to come to Gainesville and play ...Trey Burton did not play after all 500 Kentucky football fans signed a petition banning him from playing against the Wildcats ... Attendance was 87,102. Only one Kentucky fan attended and he was camping outside the O'Connell Center for the Wildcats trip to Gainesville on March 9, 2013. And that's just part of The Unsportsmanlike Gentleman's hysterical recap of Florida's win over Kentucky.

Apologies: Due to some technical difficulties (totally unrelated to SB Nation, kinda) Theater of Operations will be posted later today or tomorrow morning at the latest.

"We don’t really have too much film on them and we don’t know what they could come out in. We are expecting them to be a spread, no huddle team, but they could come out in the I-formation and run the ball down our throat."

That would be Jonathan Bostic and his thoughts on the Texas A&M offense. It would seem that there really isn't much film out there on the Aggies considering that both the head coach and quarterback will be making their Aggie debuts on Saturday. While the Gators have a game under their belt and that could be considered somewhat of an advantage, the Aggies might have the element of surprise going for them. At least at first anyway. Better cue up some 2011 Houston Cougars film. (Sean Lester, The Dallas Morning News)

12:14 For me, there is another uncomfortable realization: I am never home, even when I am at home. I am a Florida fan for a reason: in the absence of God or home, there was the state of Florida, and the things that eat other things in the dark of a boiling night, and the ordered version of that bloodsport, Florida football. A nation of nobody agreeing on one thing, and one thing only: violence against an other, preferably channeled through the hands and feet of our fleetest and most desperate citizens. Some part of me is violent, and craves violence for violence's sake. That part was Florida, and still is.

I'm still on Olympics duty, which is why things are still kinda sparse around here. Olympics recap coming, roundup of everything that happened today coming, but, for now, let Spencer write the words you didn't know were in your soul.

I am deeply sorry for the lack of comments and posts. It's just been one of "those" months. I should be back 100% starting tomorrow morning or maybe even tonight.

Florida. Brent Pease comes in from Boise to stitch together the corpse of the Florida offense, run a couple of million volts through it, and then see how far it walks on its own before the inevitable punt or field goal. Pease brings with him the Boise Glow, the lingering shine from simply being near the Pope of the Sawtooths, Chris Petersen, but so did Dirk Koetter and Dan Hawkins, and look where that got anyone. (It indirectly got you Todd Graham, Arizona State. We're so very sorry about that.) Pease is intense, dedicated to the run, and disliked by Jared Lorenzen*. *May be giant talking P90x box.

Spencer Hall runs down new SEC coaches over at the mothership. How do you feel about Pease now? Has the new coordinator smell worn off?

"It was just a bad shooting year, I guess," Beal told Sporting News’ Ryan Fagan in Charlotte on Monday. "Honestly, I mean, there’s nothing I can really (blame) for it. I guess it was just a bad shooting year. Toward the end of the year I really stepped it up, got in the gym more, and I shot like 40-plus percent during tournament time. It was really just a matter of me not focusing, I guess. Just shots not going down."

We're learning a lot about Bradley Beal's only year at Florida from the NBA Draft process. Ryan Fagan and Sean Deveney of Sporting News got this quote.

Chip Howard, UF's senior athletics director for internal affairs, offered a toast to O'Sullivan and his coaches during the group outing. He praised them for the job they have done not only this season, but since they arrived and changed the perception -- and reality -- of the program. "We wanted to become relevant year in and year out,'' Howard said. "Did that mean we expected to make it to the College World Series every year? No. But we wanted to have a program that was at least in the hunt."

Scott Carter's look at what Kevin O'Sullivan has done at Florida is a must-read.
