Musings: On Billy Donovan's NBA interest, the Tie-tle, Directors' Cup, and Buddy Alexander

Musings: On Billy Donovan's NBA interest, the Tie-tle, Directors' Cup, and Buddy Alexander

Florida's finest coach is getting sniffed at again. That's better than the NBA turning up its nose at Billy Donovan. Hey, Billy Donovan's being linked to NBA teams again! It must be the offseason. This happens again and again with Donovan, who is one of maybe two or three unequivocally great college coaches who have national championships and no cup of coffee in the NBA to speak of, and thus have both pedigree and novelty. Tom Izzo, also linked to theTimberwolves job, is the other coach most frequently mentioned in this same air as Donovan, and Bill Self is not far behind, though Self's...

Florida track dominates 2014 Tom Jones Memorial Invitational

The Florida Gators track and field teams had a very successful day on the track at the Tom Jones Memorial Invite, winning eight events and finishing in numerous top-10s. The No. 1-ranked men and No. 2-ranked women's Florida Gators track and field teams held their own at the 2014 Tom Jones Memorial Invite on Saturday as they cruised to eight wins and plenty of other top performances during their final home meet of the season. Led by five victories in the field events, the Gators showed exactly why they have one of the top track and field programs in the country. The Gators swept both the...

The Tie-tle: Did Florida and Oklahoma change college gymnastics forever?

The Tie-tle: Did Florida and Oklahoma change college gymnastics forever?

It was the greatest night ever on the grandest stage in college gymnastics. Florida and Oklahoma made it unforgettable and seismic, and will be forever linked because of it. There had never been a tie at the top. Coming into Saturday's final stage of the 2014 NCAA Championships — the Super Six — women's college gymnastics had staged an annual national championship since 1967 without having two teams tie for the best score in its final competition. Four of those national championship events happened when the national body for women's college sports was the American Association for...

Crowded at the top: Florida gymnastics shares second straight national championship

The craziest finish in NCAA Super Six history ended with Florida (and Oklahoma) on top. It looked like a Florida runaway early. Then it looked like an Alabama rout. Then LSU made its charge. Then Florida responded. Then Alabama did. Then, after an epic final rotation at the 2014 Super Six, Florida and Oklahoma were the two teams left standing at the top of the world, becoming the first teams in NCAA gymnastics history to share a national title. The Gators and Sooners both put up phenomenal 198.175 scores — the highest in Super Six history — to take the top spot. And both teams had to...

Florida Gators gymnastics looking for second straight national title at NCAA Championships

Florida's rumbling, tumbling reptiles are still the slight favorites for a second straight title. They aren't coming in with the same momentum they had last season. And they'll be performing in an even less hospitable arena than they did to win their first national title. But after a season of proving again and again that they were the favorites to repeat as national champions, all that's left for the Florida Gators gymnastics team to do this weekend is winning it all. The Gators, and the 11 other teams in the 2014 NCAA Championships, taking place this weekend in Birmingham, Alabama, will...

Florida football recruiting: 2015 DB Marcus Lewis commits to the Gators

Florida's just gonna keep restocking the No-Fly Zone. Florida has landed a commitment from 2015 defensive back Marcus Lewis from the confusingly-named Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C., Rivals' Adam Friedman reports ($). Why? Well, you can never have too many defensive backs. Lewis is a four-star player in the 247Sports Composite rankings, and rated by the 247Composite as the nation's No. 12 athlete. Rivals has Lewis rated as the No. 8 cornerback in the country. And at 6'1" and 180ish pounds, Lewis certainly has the rangy frame that is en vogue for cornerbacks. He uses it...

Florida Gators 2014 spring practice: The four most important takeaways

Florida Gators 2014 spring practice: The four most important takeaways

What's worth remembering from Florida's first practices after a forgettable 2013 season? Florida's spring practices didn't show all that much. But they showed enough for me to be sure — and by sure, I mean certain — of a few things. Jeff Driskel is Florida's quarterback I know, I know: You're worried about Driskel. You think he's too fragile/dumb/quiet/turnover-prone/erratic. You don't think he's very good, and don't think Florida can be very good with him. I think you'll be wrong about most — if not all — of that. But it's also not the point. The point: For better or worse,...

Florida Gators 2014 spring game: Offense beats defense in 23-23 tie

Florida Gators 2014 spring game: Offense beats defense in 23-23 tie

It's easy to laugh at how Florida's spring game ended. But the Gators' offense looks well on its way to not being a laughingstock. First, we must begin at the end: Yes, Florida finished its spring game at a 23-23 tie between the Blue (the offense's No. 1s, more or less) and Orange (the defense's No. 1s, more or less) teams, and yes, Florida opted to kick an extra point after a touchdown from Skyler Mornhinweg to Bair Diamond with just seconds left gave the Orange team a chance to tie or win. And, thus, "Florida didn't win its spring game!?" is the easiest joke in the college football world...

Florida Gators 2014 spring game, Open Thread: The Orange & Blue Debut is here

Surely, this will be the day that puts every Florida fan's deep-seated grievances with the program as currently consistuted to rest. There's very little good that comes out of spring games. In 2006, Tim Tebow was slightly more impressive than Chris Leak ... which only touched off the quarterback "controversy" — one in which fans fanned almost all of the flames — that helped result in Leak getting booed at home that season. In 2009, John Brantley looked good enough that I sincerely thought he was faster than Tebow; by 2011, he was having an awful spring game that led into an alternately...

Florida Gators 2014 spring game: Orange & Blue Debut will feature drafted teams

Florida's going to have team captains picking players for its spring game. Is this a good idea? Eagle-eyed Twitter user Charles Woodbury made a great catch yesterday, when the YouTube account run by Florida's athletic department uploaded a live stream titled "2014 Orange & Blue Debut Selection Show" that was set to air at 7 p.m. on Thursday. It looked like the sort of thing one puts up in advance of a fantasy draft of a spring game.
