Florida doesn’t kick off against Georgia until Saturday afternoon, but there were plenty of developments concerning the Gators in the morning before the game began.
There was a report that Florida was working to negotiate a buyout for coach Jim McElwain. Shortly after, there was a denial from Gators athletic director Scott Stricklin that discussions regarding a buyout of the coach’s contract involving anyone representing the University of Florida or the school’s athletic department had taken place.
The internet was buzzing was about the developments. Here’s a sampling of the reactions.
