Jim McElwain met with the media Monday. As I hinted in yesterday’s links, there was no way McElwain was going to let his team look past Florida Atlantic, a team that views its game against Florida this weekend as its “Super Bowl,” with the Gators still in the Playoff hunt and facing Florida State on Nov. 28.
Here are five things to know:
- Florida QB Will Grier has taken a big step forward in his appeals process.
- On the same day news about Grier’s appeal broke, his father posted this picture showing shirts Will’s family and friends have made as he battles his suspension.
- Florida’s regular-season finale against Florida State will kick off in prime time.
- Three important Gators will miss the Florida Atlantic game.
- The Gators have jumped up in SEC Country’s Power Rankings.
