Sluggish ticket sales are threatening to become the storyline of Florida's Sugar Bowl matchup with Louisville.
Florida lagging in Sugar Bowl ticket sales: I just think Florida fans aren't buying $100+ tickets from UF, and that they're gonna show up in NOLA and at the Sugar Bowl itself in droves. But then, I think Florida fans are more savvy and penny-wise than they are fair-weather. (Trey Iles, The Times-Picayune)
After Demarcus Robinson: Apparently James Clark "might commit on the spot" if Florida offers him. So that's a nice back-pocket thing to have. (Zach Abolverdi, Gator Prospectus | The Gainesville Sun)
The value of early enrollment: This is part of why I doubt Florida eases up on Robinson. (Gentry Estes, 247Sports)
David Eckstein, UF graduate: Long, strange trip for the little guy. (Scott Carter, GatorZone)
UF among more valuable public schools: The thing that worries me about this is that UF keeps getting written up as a great value even as tuition goes up and state funding gets slashed, which either a) allows for the state to keep slashing funding in a way that further hampers UF's academic mission or b) means that most other state schools are even worse. (Annamaria Andriotis, The Wall Street Journal)

How to get jacked at the gym, bro: Scipio's just a great writer. (Scipio Tex, Barking Carnival)
The best Starter jackets on eBay: This list is pathetic and I could make a better one of just Gators Starter jackets. And might! (Ben Lyon, The Classical)
The story of a man and his concealed-carry gun: You can probably guess where I stand on this issue, and I won't get into it here, but I thought this was a great read. (Dan Baum, Harper's Magazine)
The best music video you'll see today. This is Detroit rapper Danny Brown's "Grown Up." I believe there are cusses in it, but you can watch the video without sound and smile at it.
