The Florida Gators are 6-0 and ranked in the top 10 in the AP Poll, but right now the UF fan base is reeling from the news that starting quarterback Will Grier has been suspended for the remainder of the season for using performance-enhancing drugs.
While Grier's suspension may have come as a shock to many, at least one Florida fan knew this was going to happen. In fact, this person called Grier's suspension while the QB was on the field helping his team to a 21-3 victory over Missouri on Saturday night.

JokerSloth had it down cold. As amusing as this may seem, it's not that surprising. On every message board, there are fans who are very plugged in with the goings on of the team and university they support.
Clearly, JokerSloth has some good sources in Gainesville.
