Marcus Maye taking over at safety: Good thing, and not just for #321Represent reasons. I think Maye's the most physically gifted of Florida's options at safety, and if he's got the nuts and bolts of the position down, he could make hay back there. (Scott Carter, Carter's Corner | GatorZone)

Who could score a Gators fat guy touchdown? Here are five candidates. (Richard Johnson, Gator Country)

Recruiting mailbag: Not a lot that the plugged-in don't know here, but a good point about walk-on scholarships having little meaning to recruiting. (Zach Abolverdi, Gator Prospectus | The Gainesville Sun)

Scottie Wilbekin getting back in good graces, Chris Walker still not enrolled: In other words: No news. (Kevin Brockway, The Gainesville Sun)

Florida soccer begins season tonight: Expect a transition year after the departures of seniors Erika Tymrak, Kat Williamson, and Holly King. (Chris Harry, GatorZone)

Urban Meyer urged to drop "circle drill": You may remember it as the "circle of life" drill that Tim Tebow won repeatedly while at Florida. (Bill Livingston, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer)

Mike Miller among people defrauded by scammer: You're surprised, surely. (Kathy Lynn Gray, The Columbus Dispatch)

THE JUMBALAYATHAN: I would eat this. (Billy Gomilla, And The Valley Shook)

Would you take Saban 2.0 if you knew that's what Muschamp could be? Are you okay with Marcus Maye getting a starting spot, or did you have another horse in the race? Do you think Throwback Thursday is dumb? The comments are yours.
