Several Gators to miss spring practice; Tebow's "promise'' now part of UF history
Starting OL Mike Pouncey is among eight players who will be out of action when spring football practice begins next week.
Pouncey will miss practice as he rehabs a left shoulder injury.
Here is a list of the others who will miss spring practice: DT Brandon Antwine (right knee); LB Brandon Hicks (right shoulder); LB Chris Pintado (right shoulder); WR Omarius Hines (thighs); KR/RB Brandon James (right foot); DB Joey Sorrentino (left knee); S Cody Worton (left wrist/left knee).
Florida opens spring practice on March 25.
Also this week, UF athletic officials put up a plaque at the new football facility with the words of quarterback Tim Tebow's now famous speech following the Ole Miss game.
After the stunning loss, Tebow promised fans that no team would work harder and no one would push a team to work harder than he would the remainder of the season. Florida never lost another game.
The plaque is on a brick wall at the Heavener Football Complex on the UF campus.
