Watch: Florida’s Jim McElwain reflects on Gators’ win over Tennessee

New, 50 comments

Ah, the Monday presser.

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

You know the drill: Florida Gators coach Jim McElwain meets with the media on Mondays for what is usually — barring hurricanes and all — one of two weekly press conferences, tells some folksy stories, shrugs when asked for updates on suspended players, ribs the reporters who ask about injuries, and says “And yet” a lot.

This week’s edition is probably going to be slightly less easy for pessimists to find troubling body language or supposed nerves in, given that McElwain’s team just got the sort of exhilarating win after an exhausting fortnight that should put him in a slightly more chipper mood.

And yet: I’m sure we’ll try to glean a full worldview from a few moments of an adult sighing or hesitating or something. We do that well.

Other notes will appear in this space once McElwain has said them out loud. I’m not a psychic, for better or worse.
