Billy Donovan lights fire at halftime: Among other things, there was this: "We’re all privileged in that locker room — coaches, players, strength coaches, trainers — to have an opportunity to be at this school representing the school, wearing that jersey. There is something that goes along with wearing that jersey." (Jason Lieser, Gator Bytes/The Palm Beach Post)

Will Yeguete out indefinitely: Yeguete suffered a broken foot with about 11 minutes left in the game last night against the Auburn Tigers. Yeah, this isn't good folks. (Adam Silverstein, Only Gators)

Missouri to keep artificial turf: Instead of replacing their artificial turf with real grass, they are just replacing the fake stuff with newer fake stuff. In case Missouri doesn't know already, we don't roll with the fake stuff here in the SEC. Also, it's hard to respect a football team that plays in a dome or on artificial turf. At least for me anyway. It's an air-flow problem you say? Fix that why don't you. You've got the money now! (T. Kyle King, Dawg Sports)

James Wilson seeks sixth year: The guard's career has been plagued by injuries. Hopefully from an experience standpoint, he is successful in his request. (Rachel George, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)

Gators rally to beat Bethune-Cookman: I'm sure our resident baseball expert BKGator will have the recap up shortly. (Franz Beard, 247 Sports)
