First we start with the Dothan Eagle, which I'm told is The New York Times of southeast Alabama. Perhaps surprisingly, they use some strong language in describing UF's 59-31 victory over Troy.
Um, Troy scored 31 points against the defending champion too. And what seems like piling on, the last sentence in the article notes that Troy got $550,000 for playing in Gainesville.
Like I said during the game, Brandon James is electric. And I'd rather see James returning kicks than Percy. It's like the difference between a setup man and a closer. Yeah, the closer could get a five or six out save. But, you'd rather save him for the ninth. When Bubba is gone, I suspect that this will be the relationship between James and Percy.
As if giving up 31 points wasn't bad enough, now Bubba has a knee problem. Fayson was shaken up during the game, James has a bum ankle, and Percy seems to have a chronic problem with ankle soreness.
Also in that article, apparently the Troy bus fish-tailed a car carrying Gator fans off of I-75 yesterday. Don't trust the article that says the car tried to cut the bus off. Because if that was the case, the driver would have had time to react and slow down.
