Antonio Morrison speaks about insane recovery: Spoiler alert: Though it's really nothing more than a young man working very hard to overcome adversity and return to a job that he knows could richly reward him if he can turn it into a career, there won't be a better story than Antonio Morrison returning to lead Florida as a senior after a devastating knee injury.

Read and listen to his quotes; there's no hint of the guy who punched a bouncer and barked at a police dog in the summer of 2013, and no suggestion that he could have taken even a second off from his maniacal rehabilitation and recovery to do that, anyway. One of the best things about college sports is watching boys (and girls) grow into young men (and women) over the courses of their careers.

Your Gators moment of zen:

Sure, former FSU player Snoop Minnis's "epic" and in no way sad means of trolling Florida is kind of creative. But it's also the sort of thing that FSU fans can get away with doing because Florida's mascot isn't a representation of a Native American tribe.
