Florida loses starting DE to season-ending hip surgery

The injury-plagued career of Jordan Sherit (pictured, right) has come to an end because of, you guessed it, another injury. Sherit suffered an injury in last Saturday’s loss to Texas A&M that dropped Florida 1½ games behind Georgia in the SEC’s East division.  Wednesday, Jim McElwain confirmed that the starting defensive end will miss the remainder of the year after undergoing season-ending hip surgery because of the injury sustained in that game. As this is the lineman’s final season of eligibility, the collegiate portion of his playing career is over as well. “It’s a bad deal, man,” the head coach said of the situation. Sherit’s 2.5 sacks are currently second on the Gators, while his five tackles

Social media helping college teams start new traditions

It has become apparent in Florida's last two games, as the Gators have mixed practices old and new. As is customary, Gator fans sing ''We Are The Boys From Old Florida'' at the end of the third quarter. Now they follow that up by singing along as the public-address system plays "I Won't Back Down" by Gainesville, Florida, native Tom Petty , who died Oct. 2.

Behind Enemy Lines A QA with Black Shoe Diaries

Hello, everyone! Welcome to this edition of Behind Enemy Lines, where I interview someone each week from fellow SB Nation sites. This week I spoke with Aaron Yorke who writes for Black Shoe Diaries, the Penn State blog. So without further ado, let's get into it. Josh LaFond: Are Penn State fans pretty confident that the Nittany Lions can take down Michigan on Saturday? Aaron Yorke: It's safe to say that Penn State fans are very confident that victory is imminent on Saturday, especially after Michigan lost to Michigan State in a monsoon and struggled to hold off an Indiana squad that the Lions demolished three weeks ago. If John O'Korn and the underwhelming Michigan offense can scrape together

What To Watch For Florida State

WILL JIMBO FISHER SPEED THINGS UP? Florida State is the second slowest team in the country. Jimbo Fisher has never run much of a fast paced offense but to be this slow makes me wonder if it’s on purpose. Fisher has a true freshman at quarterback and I think that might make him a little uneasy when it comes to speeding things up and letting him take some control on the field. Louisville is just not doing anything well on defense. I could see this as a game for Jimbo to try some things that they haven’t done yet. James Blackman is starting his fifth game and he’s coming off of a game where he completed all but 3 passes. Blackman’s improvement could lead to Fisher opening things up and that could
