07:26 AM ET 10.01 | It seems Florida DT Dominique Easley won't be taking another chance on NCAA football. Easley, a senior, tore the ACL in his right knee during practice Sept. 24 and is out for the season. He is eligible for a medical red-shirt, which would allow him to come back next year, but is not interested. "Dominique is definitely going to the NFL next year," Florida coach Will Muschamp said. Easley was projected as a first-round pick in the upcoming draft prior to tearing his ACL. He tore the ACL in his left knee at the end of the 2011 season. Those issues might be considered red flags, but Muschamp is confident teams will be highly interested. "I think that's the best move for him right now, to prepare himself for April and get ready for that," he said. "He and I talked briefly about it, and that's what he wants to do."

OK, gentlemen....opening up the line for a little smack-talk. How bad are you scaly lizzards gonna beat my poor, defensless little piggies this year?

And, are you REALLY going to beat them in the swamp this time, or are you going to have the referees do it for you again??

I don't think their O can score more than 9 points, so it depends how my pick-6's you give up

Demps would have scored from anywhere on the next play.
