Channing Crowder takes shot at UM

As if the Gators weren't talking enough smack about this weekend's showdown with the Hurricanes, Florida product Channing Crowder has been baiting UM alum and Dolphins teammate Vernon Carey about putting a friendly wager on Saturday's intrastate rivalry game.

Considering his Hurricanes are so young and unproven, Carey has shied away from biting down on Crowder's bait. But it hasn't stopped Crowder, the locker room's resident comedian, from talking smack.

"Nobody is taking that bet anywhere in the world because Florida is just going to trample them," said Crowder, who for the record got spanked by the Hurricanes twice during his playing career.

"[UM freshman quarterback] Jacory Harris was in P.E. six months ago, come on now. They don't have a chance to beat the Gators, at all. I don't know why people even talk about this. It's a warm up game for the Gators," Crowder boasted.

For the record, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow never took P.E. He was too busy being home schooled because his parents were scared of public and private education. I wonder if Tebow's mom is still doing his laundry and making his bed?

If you haven't figured it out yet I'm not a Florida fan, and it has nothing to do with the fact I covered UM. That whole school is too darn arrogant.
While I'm not optimistic about UM pulling off an upset since quarterbacks rule this game - Florida has college football's best in Tebow and UM's Robert Marve will be making his first start against UF - the Hurricanes still have a punchers chance.

All it takes is for Tebow, who secretly thinks he's a fullback that happens to have an arm, to take one physical hit for the game to change.
If I'm the Hurricanes I'd encourage the refs to make sure they have a really loud whistle, if you know what I mean. The one thing UM's past two victories over Florida have proven is that the Gators are traditionally soft.

When asked if UM had absolutely no chance, Crowder said "A blind squirrel can find a nut now and then, but a blind squirrel ain't eating that good."

By my count isn't Florida the blind squirrel considering the Gators haven't beat the Hurricanes in six straight tries, going all the way back to the 1985 season?....

Let the trash talk commence....
