Jeremy Foley comments on negotiations for moving Florida’s postponed game with LSU: Foley used the word “difficult” 19 times during his press conference yesterday when describing the process. Foley said that LSU had “drawn a line in the sand” and was unwilling to consider any other options presented that were not consistent with that line. That line in the sand was LSU’s desire to retain their home game on November 19th.
