    Adam, I hear Jenkins has decided to come back for his senior year. Heard anything about this?

    I think Wynn had a carry in the game but I think it was for a loss or no gain

    Help me Adam, I have had a couple of times your articles get delayed, (Jenkins is a good example). i am out on the west coast, I can;t see how it would make a difference but is there something that would possibly delay your article oout here (or should I contact my internet provider to see why my service sucks?) 🙂

    And what is this I hear about Meyer resigning? ha ha

    • I honestly have no clue why articles are delayed – they shouldn’t be. How are you accessing the site? If you’re checking via RSS reader, sometimes those take a little while to update. But if you are just visiting OnlyGators.com via bookmark, it should be up immediately.

      If you still have issues after doing that, send me an email to adam@onlygators.com detailing the issue and I’ll send it off to our hosts.
