Gators are the early favorite: The Gators open up as a 1.5 point favorite against Ohio State in the Gator Bowl. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that nothing else needs to be said at the moment. (Rachel George, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)

Sturgis is a finalist: A finalist for the Lou Groza award that is. Congrats Caleb! (GatorZone)

Dominique Easley out with torn ACL: I'm sure we all know about this now, let's just hope that he is ready for next season. (Antonya English, Gator Report/St. Petersburg Times)

Bowl game practice time: Aside from the money and another chance to watch the Gators, the best thing about the Gators making a bowl game is the extra practices that go with it. We really need to take advantage of them this year. (Fightin Gators)

UF coaches watch Tracy Howard: It was during his 3A final game against Palm Beach Gardens. A fair warning though, unless you have an account at 24/7 Sports, you're out of luck. (24/7 Sports)

Men's basketball finalizes 2012 recruiting class: While only three players, it packs a decent punch. (Rachel George, Orlando Sentinel)
