Munoz Might Get Smacked

Article excerpt

If Florida defensive end Alex Brown has the kind of game today against Tennessee that he had last year when he collected five quarterback sacks, forced a fumble and intercepted a pass, don't be surprised if the trash-talking Gator gets into a little smack with UT freshman offensive tackle Michael Munoz, son of Anthony, the NFL Hall of Famer. You can just see Brown glaring at Munoz with a Bob Knight-like smirk on his face and saying: "You've got a long way to go to be as good as your dad." . . .

Both Weinstein and the Jaguars say they aren't sure who's responsible for covering any potential financial shortfalls on the improvements to Alltel Stadium. Gee, why does this kind of posturing on stadium issues sound so familiar?
