The “Returning Home: Florida College Football” episode of Film Don’t Lie covers bringing a historical star back to campus in their prime for the seven FBS Florida football programs.
What if the Florida Gators could bring back Tim Tebow in his prime? Or the FSU Seminoles could see Peter Warrick lined up all over the field again? Can you picture Ken Dorsey back behind the center in Mark Richt’s offense? Or even TY Hilton playing for Butch Davis? The USF Bulls could use Jason Pierre-Paul and the FAU Owls could use Trey Hendrickson to improve their pass rush. That’s what this episode Returning Home: Florida College Football is all about. The seven FBS schools get the chance to bring one player back from their history and in the prime of their careers.
Film Don’t Lie is presented by Saturday Blitz’s College Football 5th Quarter series. Today’s episode covers the 2018 spring football season’s 2 losers and 3 winners. The losers were the Michigan Wolverines and Miami Hurricanes. The winners were THE Ohio State Buckeyes, Oregon Ducks and Nebraska Cornhuskers. I graded this on the hype it built for the season, momentum gained, and how the teams looked on the field of play.
The latest episode of Film Don’t Lie is called “2018 Spring Football Quarterback Battles.” Justin covers UCLA, Texas, Ohio State, Alabama, and Clemson in full plus a lightning round of Oklahoma, USC, Miami, and Michigan.
