5,500 words on Florida baseball's roster: I won't even pretend to know Florida baseball as well as Cody Jones does. (Cody Jones, Scout)

Tucker Simpson to take Saturday starter duties: Good luck, buddy. Karsten Whitson's shoes aren't that big, I guess. (Scott Carter, Carter's Corner | GatorZone)

Florida women's golf fades to fifth: And, for the first time this year, no Gator won the individual title in a tournament Florida was in. (GatorZone)

Foul or defend? It doesn't matter: Ken Pomeroy does a study and finds what one of my good friends found: The difference between fouling and defending when up three at the end of college basketball games is very small. (Ken Pomeroy, kenpom.com)

Mike Zunino and The Buster Posey Plan: Seeing Zunino in Seattle in 2014 seems fast, but I think Zunino's more MLB-ready than Posey was, and I won't be surprised to see him in Mariners colors this fall. (Mike Curto)

Remember Nerlens Noel the human: Dana O'Neil is very good at her job. (Dana O'Neil, ESPN)
