- Grier also issued a statement on his suspension. He apologized and admitted to taking an over-the-counter supplement.
The No. 8-ranked Gators will be in Death Valley this weekend for a showdown with No. 6 LSU. Tigers coach Les Miles discussed Florida’s situation shortly after the news broke:
"I would suggest that the passing will be the same. It'll be just another QB doing it," Miles said of Florida.

Will Grier suspended for PEDs? What the hell does a QB need PEDs for? Most QBs don’t even do the same lift workout as the rest of the team

Here is what people around the country are saying about the reported suspension:
As long as Florida didn't know, there's no risk of Florida vacating any wins. As long as it followed protocol, it's fine.

I can't remember such a major player testing positive, losing a whole season any time recently.
