Commits keep coming; Gators land Miami WR Tyquan Thornton

Coveted Miami Booker T. Washington wide receiver Tyquan Thornton, who had initially committed to Baylor in March but backed off that...

Louisiana WR Ja'Marr Chase commits to Gators

The Florida Gators, a day after receiving a commitment from the No. 2-ranked quarterback in the country, added more offensive firepower to the 2018 recruiting class with a pledge from Ja’Marr Chase.

Chase, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound pass catcher out of Metairie (La.) Archbishop Rummel High, will give...

QB Matt Corral commitment gives Gators huge recruiting jolt

The Florida Gators received a huge jolt for the 2018 recruiting class Sautrday with the commitment of top quarterback prospect Matt Corral of Long Beach (Calif.) Poly Tech.

Corral, a 6-foot-2, 196-pound pro-style quarterback, is ranked as the No. 2 passing quarterback in the country according to...

UF coach J.C. Deacon plays his best tournament, wins Florida Open

UF coach J.C. Deacon eats, breathes and sleeps golf.

Playing golf? It depends.

Sometimes Deacon gets in a few rounds a week and other times barely touches a club. When he stepped to the first tee during last weekend’s 71st Florida Open, he had put the peg in the ground just twice in more than 14...

UF safety Marcell Harris to miss 2017 season with torn Achilles tendon

UF safety Marcell Harris had to wait to make his mark in the Gators’ vaunted secondary, but in 2016 emerged as one of its leaders and future stars.

Instead, Harris’ 2017 season ended before it started. The school announced Thursday the fifth-year senior from Orlando is out for the year with a torn...


07/18/2017 10:25 AM
Gators’ defense expects no dropoff despite key losses

Do not worry, UF safety Marcell Harris insists. The defense will be just fine.

The Gators’ defense will be as aggressive, stingy and successful as the units that served as the backbone of back-to-back SEC East winners and have finished ranked in the top-10 nationally at the end of every regular...

Former Gators coach Will Muschamp finds soft landing spot at South Carolina

Coach Will Muschamp needed one season at South Carolina to do what he could not do during four years at Florida.

In 2016, Muschamp found a quarterback, an offense and a good fit for himself.

The Gamecocks’ surprising 6-7 finish and bowl bid were cause for celebration in Columbia, where expectations...

Missouri features plenty of playmakers heading into 2017

Back-to-back SEC East titles are a distant memory for the Missouri Tigers.

But after consecutive losing seasons, Mizzou certainly should field an exciting team to watch, if not a winning one.

The Tigers boast a collection of playmakers few teams in the SEC can match. Among 10 returning starters...

Improving Kentucky Wildcats look to take next step during coach Mark Stoops' fifth season

Kentucky coach Mark Stoops could not believe the news, even though it was coming directly from the source.

Stoops’ big brother and coaching hero, Bob, had decided to step down at Oklahoma at age 56 and coming off his 10th Big 12 title in 18 seasons.

“It's one of those moments kind of you won't...


07/11/2017 05:25 PM
UF coach Jim McElwain ends vacation with bumpy day in SEC spotlight

During a recent visit to Montana’s Flathead Lake, UF coach Jim McElwain had other things on his mind besides the upcoming season.

A hungry bear sniffing around the cabin breezeway and a mountain lion roaming the island will grab one’s attention. The wide open spaces of Big Sky Country will liberate...


07/11/2017 11:55 AM
Why haven’t Gators been able to develop a quarterback since Tim Tebow?

QB or not QB — that is the question.

Again.

For the Florida Gators, it’s Groundhog Day every year at SEC Media Days when reporters flock into Central Alabama and ask who the starting quarterback is going to be and whether said quarterback is good enough to make UF’s perennially pitiful offense...


07/10/2017 07:10 PM
Tennessee coach Butch Jones faces make-or-break season with Vols

Tabbed to win the SEC East Division last season, the 2016 Tennessee Vols were champions of life but nothing else.

A promising 5-0 start included the program’s first win against Florida in 12 tries, but ended with a 4-4 slide and coach Butch Jones’ team sitting two games behind the division champion...

Since Hurricane Matthew, Gators have turned LSU Tigers into homecoming pussycats

HOOVER, Ala. — Officially, they are known as the Louisiana State Tigers, but to the Florida Gators they might as well be the passive, purring Pussycats of LSU (Little Sisters University).

Ever since the school’s buffoonish athletics director Joe Alleva opened his mouth and tried to shame UF into...

Schools chase Alabama’s elite support staff edge while NCAA mulls rule change

Mike Locksley spent the winter of 2016 in coaching exile, awaiting another chance.

Little did Locksley realize it would lead to the biggest opportunity of his career, though the path back to the field would begin with a backup role.

Knowing Locksley’s offensive acumen and recruiting prowess, coach...

UF coach Kevin O’Sullivan’s children helped ease pressure during Gators’ national title run

Florida coach Kevin O’Sullivan had many duties at the College World Series. Some of the more urgent ones had nothing to do with baseball.

“I’ve had to make sure the spinners are working and the iPad is charged,” O’Sullivan said.

Along for the championship ride were his daughter Payton, 6, and son...

Florida, FSU reach Top 15 in diverse Directors’ Cup Standings

Athletic programs at the University of Florida and Florida State University finished in the Top 15 of the Learfield Directors’ Cup for the 2016-17 athletic season, the final standings showed on Wednesday.

Florida Gators savor first national baseball title

Florida’s first baseball championship ended with a mystery.

After catching the final out of the Gators’ 6-1 win against Louisiana State, JJ Schwarz tucked the ball in his glove and tossed both aside for the traditional mid-field dog pile. When he returned to the glove, the ball was gone.

“Whoever...

Gators and fat-cat SEC could spend FSU, ACC into oblivion

Another day, another national championship for the Florida Gators.

Yawn.

This time, it was the baseball team. A couple of weeks ago, it was the dynastic track-and-field team. A couple of weeks before that, it was the women’s tennis team. Since 2010, the Gators have won 17 national championships...


06/27/2017 10:45 PM
Gators knock off LSU, win first baseball national title

A controversial call, a throw home, a sliding catch, an unexpected star and a championship.

It was quite a Tuesday night for the Florida Gators, who earned their first baseball national title with a 6-1 win against Louisiana State. The Gators (52-19) swept the College World Series final and become...


06/26/2017 11:00 PM
UF defeats LSU 4-3 in CWS, Gators one win away from national title

The formula still works.

Great pitching and just enough offense Monday led Florida to a 4-3 win against Louisiana State in Game 1 of the College World Series Final. If the Gators (51-19) win tonight’s Game 2, they’ll claim their first national championship.

Sophomore Brady Singer, a Eustis High...

Despite flaws, Florida confident in CWS matchup with LSU for national title

Before every game, Florida’s JJ Schwarz finds a moment to pray. Often that moment comes in the locker room or a hallway, away from the view.

Saturday was different.

Following the national anthem prior to Florida’s 3-0 win against TCU, most of the Gators left the first base line to return to the...


06/23/2017 11:25 PM
UF falls to TCU, Gators to face Horned Frogs in elimination game Saturday

It was a sterling start but a tarnished finish.

Texas Christian broke through against the previously untouchable Florida pitching staff Friday in a 9-2 win in the College World Series. The same teams play today with the winner advancing to the final while the loser is eliminated.

Florida (49-19)...


06/22/2017 05:35 PM
Gator Nelson Maldonado shows toughness while battling CWS injuries

Perhaps nobody in Florida’s lineup needed a couple days off more than Nelson Maldonado.

The area around third base has dropped the sophomore right fielder the past few days at the College World Series, but no doubt he’ll be in the lineup Friday when the Gators (49-18) take on the winner of the...


06/20/2017 10:25 PM
UF gets surge at plate, rolls past Louisville in CWS

Expected power on the mound, unexpected power at the plate.

Each factored into Florida’s 5-1 win against Louisville Tuesday at the College World Series. The Gators (49-18) are off until Friday when they’ll face either Texas Christian (48-17) or Louisville (53-11) — the two teams they’ve beaten...


06/18/2017 09:55 PM
UF pitcher Alex Faedo leads Gators to win over TCU in CWS opener

A whole lot of pitching and a little bit of offense. That’s been Florida’s path to success all season and the formula worked again Sunday during a 3-0 win against Texas Christian at the College World Series.

The Gators, in the CWS for the sixth time in eight years, will face Louisville (53-10)...
