A Pregame Rumble, A UF Coach Shoving A UGA Player, Cats And Dogs Living Together…

Georgia’s Mark Richt has a reputation for being a nice guy, a Goody Two-Shoes.  But when it comes to letting his players walk right up to the edge of starting fights, he washes his hands like Pontius Pilate and allows it to happen.  Repeatedly.

Several years ago his team stomped on the “T” logo at midfield before a game at Tennessee.  He also instructed his players to draw a celebration penalty after UGA’s first score against Florida a few seasons back.  Both instances could have led to fisticuffs in the testosterone-fueled, macho world of college football.  And something that occurred this past weekend could have led to a (bigger) fight as well.

UF Reveals Coaching Salaries For New Football Assistants

The University of Florida has released details of the deals they used to lure three new coaches onto Will Muschamp’s coaching staff:


* New offensive coordinator Brent Pease will make $590,000 per year for three seasons.  Incredibly, in this age of million-dollar coordinators, that’s not that big a payout for the guy coming from Boise State.  His predecessor Charlie Weis had a deal worth $875,000 annually.


* New offensive line coach Tim Davis inked a one-year contract worth $275,000.  Poor guy.  Davis will replace Frank Verducci — an ex-Weis aide who was skedaddled by Muschamp after signing day.


* Finally, new strength coach Jeff Dillman will be paid $215,000 a year for two years to replace the incredibly popular Mickey Marotti.  Marotti exited Gainesville to join old boss Urban Meyer at Ohio State.


For Florida, those salaries are far from exorbitant.
