Jim McElwain gives updates on Antonio Callaway, Matt Rolin, and fall camp: McElwain indicated that he had to follow UF’s lead as far as not being able to discuss Callaway’s case. He did note that there could be some “harder consequences” for players habitually using marijuana. McElwain also stated that Rolin would stay at UF to finish his degree and was leaving the team because he lost his “love for the game.” After being disappointed in Thursday’s practice, McElwain was happier with the effort given in the scrimmage and during yesterday’s session.
