Rumors were swirling about Jim McElwain and potential buyout talk early on Saturday morning. Scott Stricklin released a statement putting that talk to rest.
Then according to a report from CBS’ Allie LaForce, Stricklin also met with McElwain again prior to the game against Georgia and assured him that there had been no talks of buyout.
All in all, this just continues to be a very strange week for Florida, which began with McElwain making assertions about receiving death threats.
The Gators are taking on Georgia, with the game appearing on CBS. Georgia has gotten off to a 7-0 lead early in the game.
