Delirium in Death Valley: How Florida made this road trip my best yet

“I was not prepared for that at all.” While I was driving to my five o’clock class on the late evening of October 13, I received an ESPN update and a plethora of texts from multiple friends: The Gators were hitting the road to Baton Rouge to make up the LSU game on November 19. No more Presbyterian. No more South Alabama. No more shade being thrown by ignorant fools who don’t understand how hurricanes affect a state, even if it doesn’t hit a town directly — oh, wait, that kept coming. I might or might have not skipped class that night to put together a master plan for a road...

Watch: Florida great Tony McCoy sounds off on Gators’ win over LSU

T.J.’s father still has a ton of life left in him. When T.J. McCoy suddenly transferred from N.C. State to Florida in 2015, it was explained in part as a move meant to bring him closer to his ailing father, Tony, who had been dealing with the ill effects of a successful bout with cancer. When T.J. McCoy was suddenly thrust into Florida’s starting lineup by injuries to Cameron Dillard and Tyler Jordan, it gave the younger McCoy a chance to follow in his father’s footsteps by doing something great on the field for the Gators. When the younger McCoy and Florida upset LSU on Saturday, it...

Florida 73, St. Bonaventure 66: Gators buckle down in final minutes for win

Florida’s road warriors pick up another W. With just over a minute to go, St. Bonaventure finally had Florida back on level pegging, after spending almost two halves chasing the Gators. Gone were the 60-45 lead that existed at the 11:29 mark of the second half, and the 47-34 edge that eight points from KeVaughn Allen granted Florida before the under-16 timeout. This was the moment for Florida to flourish or fold. And flourish they did. The Gators got three stops in the final minute, punctuating two of them with run-out dunks by John Egbunu and Devin Robinson, and finished with a 7-0 run...

Florida 76, Mercer 54: Gators go to glass, foul line to slash Bears

The Gators outmuscled Mercer up front, and also made sure to make their free throws. Florida’s first weekend away from home of the 2016-17 season culminated before an intimate gathering of hundreds in Jacksonville on Sunday night against Mercer. It was probably fine that Florida played only before those few faithful fans: The Gators’ 76-54 win over the Bears was half glass-eating spectacle, half free-throw exhibition that typically merits looking away. Except this wasn’t literal glass-eating — and Florida wasn’t throwing up bricks at the line for once. Florida yanked down 20...

If Florida wants to show progress in 2016, it must top South Carolina

Win shares show that much. It’s been more than a month since I had to tweak Florida’s 2016 win shares to reflect a loss. But the Gators’ loss to Arkansas last Saturday requires more than a tweak: Florida was poised to be an eight-win team as of this time last week, but now may be fortunate to finish with seven victories. Opponent Win Share Massachusetts 1.00 Kentucky 1.00 North Texas 1.00 at Tennessee 0.00 at Vanderbilt 1.00 Missouri 1.00 vs. Georgia 1.00 at Arkansas 0.00 South Carolina 0.70 at LSU 0.30 at Florida State 0.30 Total 7.30 My thinking: I had...

Florida 80, Florida Gulf Coast 59: Gators ease past Eagles in second half

The Gators’ run-and-gun game overwhelmed their feisty foes from Fort Myers. For about 25 minutes of Florida’s season-opening game against Florida Gulf Coast on Friday night, the 2016-17 Gators looked so much like the last two iterations of this team: Somnambulent on defense, soporific on offense, and suspect overall. Then Florida unspooled on a 35-9 run over the final 16:04 of play to finish the game. That ain’t the best way to get to a victory like the 80-58 win the Gators earned in Jackonsville against the Eagles, but it sure was effective on this night. Florida won in ways old and...

Watch: Florida soccer wins SEC championship on overtime header

The Gators capped an unlikely run to a title with some overtime heroics in Orange Beach. Florida’s soccer team entered the 2016 SEC Tournament in a somewhat unfamiliar underdog role. The Gators weren’t the league’s No. 1 seed or its top-ranked team — South Carolina was both of those — and looked unlikely to repeat as tournament champions in Orange Beach. Then they did anyway. On Sunday evening, Brooke Sharp headed in a golden goal to down Arkansas 2-1 in the tournament final, giving Florida its 12th SEC Tournament title under coach Becky Burleigh. @BrookeSharp11 to @LizSlatt to...
