It may remain a mystery who actually destroyed the crystal football, which shattered after hitting the ground outside head coach Urban Meyer's office. Florida has already contacted the company in Kentucky that makes the base of the trophy and imports the crystal from Ireland for a replacement.
Florida associate athletic director Chip Howard confirmed the accident. The trophy was sitting on a coffee table outside of Meyer's office while construction of new coaches' offices is being completed.
I believe we have found the antidote to the pre-season Florida hype. It's great to be a Gator hater!
