    More Florida testing shenanigans

    As a teacher, I've heard the outcries from parents, teachers and citizens over Florida's testing standards. The overtesting of our children is not making them better prepared for the future. It's making a handful of people very rich.

    WR Mike Evans exited in the waning stages of Thursday's non-padded workout with an apparent right hamstring injury, but Coach Lovie Smith didn't seem fazed afterward. Evans injured his left hamstring during the first OTA last year and missed an extended period of summer work.
