INDIANAPOLIS — So here I am at my first NFL Combine sitting in a room with a bunch of other journalists (almost all of them male , by the way). There seems to be a pattern in my life. Mooooo!
We’re waiting for the first player or coach to come in and subject himself to scrutiny. Mike Singletary of the 49ers is coming first. I should get Aaron Hernandez and Maurkice Pouncey today.
So far, it’s been pretty uneventful except that I brought the wrong sneakers and my feet are killing me. Oh, and there is snow on the ground with occasional flurries. Back to you, Tom.
Coming here does bring back memories even though the arena where the Gators played two Final Fours and won their first national title is gone and Lucas Oil Field sits near the site of the old arena. But the Marriott is still here when my buddy Brandon Zimmerman almost had to sleep outside because he couldn’t figure out how to get in the building one night. Luckily for Brandon, someone opened a door for him. It really wasn’t that complicated but there is this great martini bar …
It’s cold here and it’s a different kind of cold than what we’ve been experiencing in Gainesville. It’s a biting cold. Already looking forward to coming home. The big question here is whether I can find the Florida-Georgia game on a TV. There’s always GameTracker.
