    Pouncey had a huge play in that game with the holding call he drew inside the 5 giving the Steelers a fresh set of downs. Other than him none of the former Gators excited me and Spikes even looked kind of sad chasing Cotchery down the sideline, guess he was rusty.

    Adam: off the subject, is Hounshell really worth the effort of having 3 coaches visit him over the weekend?

    • I’m not a great evaluator of high school offensive linemen and I’ve never seen tape on him. But if Muschamp and Verducci – especially Verducci – think so, who is anyone to argue? Don’t worry about the star rating.
