  There was every reason for Auburn to recruit and offer Florida running back Lamical Perine. He hailed from the state of Alabama. His father Terrance played for Auburn. And, most importantly, he was really good - running for 15 touchdowns in his senior season of high school. But, Auburn didn't offer him. "I'm not an Auburn fan at all," Perine said. "They recruited me a little bit. But I didn't have an offer from them. They told me I was too slow. You can tell on my film, you can tell I'm not that slow. They had their opinion." Perine is a top running back for Florida, now entering his senior season, after recording eight TDs last year on the ground in the air. And it's in his senior season that he'll finally get a chance to play Auburn - the two teams will meet up for the first time in eight years this October.

Perine does not remember which coach told him that he was too slow. But he said it was not something he heard from any other coach throughout the recruiting process. He did have other offers from Alabama, Mississippi State and Minnesota, among others. "I remember those words. Saying they felt I needed to get my speed up. And things like that, and I'll never forget that. Honestly, that didn't stop Florida and other schools from offering me. As for if he heard that criticism from anyone else? "No, that was just something from Auburn." - Birmingham News
