Call it another entry in the “Timing is everything” file. After that disappointing and dispiriting Florida Gator loss to LSU, ESPN analyst Mike Gottfried had some encouraging things to say about UF.
Gottfried frankly doesn’t think the Gators are far from contending for the national championship. “I think next year,” he said.
“I wouldn’t want Ron hearing me say this,” added Gottfried, “but next year this is going to be a great football team. They are a year away.”
Unfortunately for Zook, who didn’t help himself with that fraternity-shouting incident, he is even money to be less than a year away from being fired. He may have to beat BOTH Georgia and Florida State to save his job coaching a national championship contender next season.
