At his Monday press conference, Florida coach Jim McElwain revealed that the flu has spread among some of his players.
“Our biggest problem is the flu bug,” McElwain said, according to Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post. “We have about nine guys out today.”
It is yet unclear as to which Florida players have been stricken with the flu, but with a big matchup against Ole Miss looming on Saturday, McElwain will need his team at full strength.
