Vols' fiasco with Greg Schiano shows danger of letting fans rule

Dan Mullen has quickly won over Gator Nation, but imagine if he’d seen something awful more than 20 years ago.

Three things we learned during Gators' 38-22 loss to Florida State

Three things we learned during Gators' 38-22 loss vs. Florida State:

1. UF AD Scott Stricklin had a worse week than UF QB Feleipe Franks.

Stricklin...

With Texas A&M job opening looming, was this FSU coach Jimbo Fisher's last game against Gators?

When you combine the uncertainty of the Florida Gators’ coaching search with the vague and nebulous manner in which Jimbo Fisher addresses his future with the Florida State Seminoles, isn’t it just a matter of time before some blogger reports that Jimbo-to-the-Gators is a “done deal”?

Would anything...

Gators eager to close tough season with win over rival Florida State

When Florida-Florida State square off, records don’t matter, conventional wisdom says.

A fierce in-state rivalry pitting programs with a combined six national titles since 1993, two proud fan bases and dozens of players with histories dating to Pop Warner give the game juice few can match.
