Gators' DT Sharrif Floyd held out due to eligibility issues



Florida DT Sharrif Floyd, who was expected to be in the Gators' starting lineup, will not play tonight due to eligibility issues.

"We have declared Sharrif Floyd ineligible and he is not eligible to compete unti his eligibility is reinstated by the NCAA,'' the Florida athletic department said in a statement. "We have been, and will continue to work with the NCAA until this matter is resolved. This is an issue that is not related to sports agents, University of Florida boosters or his recruitment to Florida. We will not have any additional comment on this matter until it is resolved.''
