05:12 PM ET 03.19 | Florida Gators linebacker Alex Anzalone suffered a right shoulder injury during a tackling drill focused mainly on the labrum. Florida head coach Will Muschamp told the media on Tuesday that Anzalone required surgery on that shoulder and is out for the remainder of spring practice, although it's likely he'll be back and ready for the start of fall. Anzalone is currently positioned in the depth chart as the backup to Antonio Morrison at middle linebacker.

You didn't know, JK? Coaches are now teaching their players to target specific ligaments on tackles to knock their opponent out of a game. This is a cornerstone of Saban's "Process." Florida is simply trying to keep pace.

You wouldn't have gotten hurt if you had stayed committed to ND Alex...

You are correct, GTH.

I understand UF is petitioning the state to have the school name changed to The Extremely Far Southeastern University of Alabama at Gainesville.
