Amid the scramble, Spartans wing Kyle...

Mullen plans to pick Meyer’s brain for some inside...

No. 10 Gators to face No. 7 Michigan in Peach Bowl

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh did not have much to say about coach Dan Mullen and his Florida Gators — the Wolverines’ opponent Dec. 29 in the Peach Bowl.

Difference between Gators and FSU: Dan Mullen is a better coach than Willie Taggart

The Florida Gators have found their Dan the Man whereas the Florida State Seminoles appear to have a bad case of the Willies.

UF cornerback CJ Henderson 'a one-of-a-kind guy' for Gators

Another practice is in the books for the Florida football team. Sweat-soaked Gators in dirt-stained uniforms trudge back to the locker room.

The scene plays out most evenings...
