Moody Picks UF, Compares School to Future Wife

Former USC running back Emmanuel Moody is headed to UF.  Moody said the decision between Florida and North Carolina was tough, but he's confident it's the right move.

"It's been a very stressful time," Moody said. "But while it's been stressful, it's also been good at the same time because I know the decision that I have made is a good one."

He then went on to compare Florida to his future wife.

"When I got off the plane I just got that feeling," Moody said. "I just kind of knew that it was the place for me. It was one of those situations when people say you just know, kind of like when you meet your wife. When you meet your wife you just know she's the one."

Pretty standard when describing Gainesville.

Moody has frequently said in the past he wants to be a featured back with whatever team he plays for.  Hopefully he knows what he's getting into under Urban Meyer and staff. They don't take kindly to a false sense of entitlement.

Nonetheless, Moody will get his chance next year as he sits this season out per NCAA requirements.

Here's a look at what he did against Arizona last year...
