Gators WR has no memory of big hit
By Times Staff and Wire Reports
Published September 13, 2006
GAINESVILLE - The way Florida receiver Andre Caldwell got hit against UCF on Saturday, it may be a good thing he doesn't remember the play.
On his first touchdown catch, his head got jammed into a defender's thigh and Caldwell stayed down for a few seconds. He also fell on the way back to the sideline, and teammates had to help him off the field.
"Just a little woozy. I don't remember exactly what happened that play," Caldwell said Tuesday. "I just remember being in at halftime. The trainers got me back out there though."
ETC: UF punter Eric Wilbur was named to the Ray Guy Award preseason watch list, given annually to the nation's best punter. Wilbur joined 30 other punters on the list, including four others from the SEC.

FSU: Defense still hurting
TALLAHASSEE - Coach Bobby Bowden's injury list keeps growing. He said sophomore defensive tackle Aaron Jones reinjured his ankle but gave no definite timetable on a return.
Jones' injury follows fellow defensive linemen Paul Griffin (torn ACL), Letroy Guion (ankle) and Emmanuel Dunbar (back). Of that group, only Guion has a chance to play Saturday.
Against Clemson, the Seminoles will rely on Alex Boston, who has battled an ankle injury for several weeks. He has practiced at defensive tackle and end this week.
Starting linebackers Buster Davis and Lawrence Timmons were held out of practice but both are expected to play this weekend.
Bowden said freshman Marcus Sims, who suffered a concussion in the Sept. 4 win over Miami, is unlikely to play against Clemson.

USF: Grothe focused
TAMPA - Call it a rivalry game or not, USF is taking special care not to get too caught up in the buildup to Saturday's showdown with Central Florida in Orlando.
Asked what he sees in UCF that makes for a tougher challenge than USF's first two opponents, McNeese State and Florida International, Bulls quarterback Matt Grothe was blunt.
"Nothing," Grothe said. "I think everybody just hypes it up because we're instate rivals or whatever. It's just another team, and we need to come out and prepare that way."
THIS AND THAT: USF coach Jim Leavitt said he'll stick with kicker Mike Benzer, even though the sophomore is 0-for-5 on field goals in his Bulls career, including a miss from 35 yards Saturday. ... Senior tackle Thed Watson, who missed Saturday's game with an ankle injury and did not practice Tuesday, is listed as a starter.

Miami: 'Canes to hit road
CORAL GABLES -- The Hurricanes returned to practice with 12th-ranked Louisville on their minds.
"Of course, it's our first road game, so it's going to be a big test for our football team to play an outstanding offensive team," coach Larry Coker said.
Miami's offense got on track last week against Florida A&M, racking up 339 yards rushing. Charlie Jones will start against the Cardinals.
