Oh how the mighty have fallen.
The once mighty Florida Gators took another loss this weekend against another rival, Florida State. But to make matters worse, the Gators loss their top recruit, wide receiver Jacob Copeland.
Copeland is a physical receiver with unbelievable strength that he uses to break wimpy tacklers. Copeland stood strong on his commitment to the Gators all the way until the last game of the season.
After the Gators threw their hat in the ring to pull one of the best offensive minds in recent college football history, Chip Kelly, one could assume that Copeland was waiting to see if the Gators could actually get Kelly.
Chip Kelly is the new head coach for UCLA Football.

On Friday night, it was revealed that Chip Kelly decided to go back to the Pac-12 to take over the struggling UCLA Bruins. Could it be because the SEC is dominated by Nick Saben? No one knows, but as of now the Gators are stuck looking for answers and recruits.
After making it to the SEC title game the last two-seasons, the bottom fell-out on the Florida Gators.
