Photo: Florida Fans Wearing “Free Chris Walker” Shirts For Tonight’s Game
Florida fans – and Dick Vitale – are just about fed up with the NCAA dragging its feet in regards to Gators freshman Chris Walker’s eligibility status. Walker, who did not qualify academically for the fall semester but took the required courses to enroll at UF for the spring, is sitting on the sidelines while the organization looks into funding he received for an unofficial visit to another school last year. At tonight’s game against Georgia, fans are making it clear how they feel about the situation:

At this point, I’m sure Billy Donovan and his staff just want an answer – either way. Fans, however, will only be happy if the decision goes in their favor.
