Florida is finally playing football and will (probably?) be ready to play Mizzou this weekend

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Mizzou is playing Florida on Saturday. Dan Mullen is sure of it.

It felt good to see Mizzou take the field against Kentucky on Saturday, especially after a long two-week wait from that emotional LSU win. But the reason the Tigers took the field against the Wildcats in the first place was the fact that, after loudly and belligerently complaining about not having enough fans in the stands, Dan Mullen got COVID-19 along with most of his roster.

The Florida outbreak was one of the worst we’ve seen in college football this season, and Monday was the first time the Gators were even able to get back onto the field. And while there may be some concern about their ability to clear the SEC-sanctioned number of available players, Dan Mullen doesn’t seem worried.

OK, Dan. Whatever you say, bud.

Even if Florida does enough players ready to go by this weekend, there are still several questions that will linger over the program. First being, will all the guys available be in condition to play? We’ve seen athletes look sluggish and hampered after dealing with the novel coronavirus, and Florida had a good chunk of their roster test positive. Second off, will they have enough team practice time to fully prepare?

Of course this is the SEC and this is Florida we’re talking about, so I’m sure those rules will be skirted “legally.” In all sincerity, though, we’re hoping the Gators can get back to full strength as soon as possible. Hopefully everyone recovers well and Mizzou gets the chance to beat them fair and square on Saturday.

In any case, the Mizzou uniform department will have quite a job in matching the Gators’ look.

Those things are crisp.
