TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —- Jerome Burney … still boot-bound.

But he is wearing a basketball shoe on his left foot, so all is not lost.


Still, you get the sense coach Gary Williams is a little weary of chatting about Burney. Or, more specifically, Burney’s boot.

“He’s still wearing a boot,” Williams said. “He was wearing a boot today in practice. He’ll be in a boot tomorrow during the game. It’s a shame, really, because he really hasn’t had a chance like everybody else to play, He showed traces last year of being able to do some things. He was complaing about his foot long before it actually went to the boot situation.”

Today, by the way, will be the ninth straight game Burney misses because of his stress fracture.
