The Florida Basketball Team Has No Comment On Premarital Sex

A reporter for the Orlando Sentinel attended the Florida Gators' press conference yesterday to ask Billy Donovan and Chandler Parsons about premarital sex, and then he wrote nearly 800 words about how the BYU honor code "lifted college athletics up." Donovan passed on the question — "How hard would it be to recruit to Florida if you had to tell your recruits you can't have premarital sex if you come to Florida?" — and, probably with those 800 words and a deadline on his mind, Bianchi tried again with Parsons.

"[H]ow many Gators would be left on the team if you had that rule?" he asked the 22-year-old senior. Parsons laughed uncomfortably and tried to talk his way out of it, but it didn't matter — Bianchi still brought it back in his own column, which was subtitled "Would UF even have enough players for a game of one-on-one?"


There are plenty of unanswered questions about this year's Sweet 16. This is one we don't care to know the answer to. But the troll can't effectively troll without a decent chance at a pull quote.
