The rumors continue to swirl.
Plane watch season is back!
According to Flight Aware, a plane is set to fly from Gainesville this afternoon and land in Windsor Locks, Ct. The tail number of the plan matches that of a University of Florida aircraft, according to Saturday Down South.
Windsor Locks isn’t far from Bristol, where ESPN is headquartered, making some think that the plane contains Florida personnel on their way to meet with ESPN’s Chip Kelly about the program’s vacant head coaching job.
This speculation is fun, but keep in mind that “Plane Watch” is often a futile and misleading exercise. In fact, another report that UF officials are heading to meet with Kelly appears to have been debunked by Gatorsports.com’s Pat Dooley.
If they are, they are doing so without their AD who will be at women’s game reception tonight. https://t.co/tojbq9pugw

I guess we will just have to wait and see at this point, but it is doubtful that the Kelly-to-UF rumors can reach more of a fever pitch.
