Loucheiz Purifoy will have a package: This is news-that-isn't-really-news stuff. (Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun)

Valdez Showers adapting well to running back: He was a good one in high school. (Scott Carter, Carter's Corner | GatorZone)

Can anyone top Alabama? Maybe. (Chris Fuhrmeister, SB Nation)

Predicting a Missouri win over Florida: Yeah, Bill's one of the smartest college football minds on the planet, but this feels odd. (Bill Connelly, Rock M Nation)

Celebrity Mr. Two Bits candidates: Tebow's the obvious one. But if he sticks with the Pats, his schedule would make it really hard. (Adam Lichtenstein, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Chris Walker not enrolled for fall semester: This was a story and a half yesterday because of terminological inexactitudes from a lot of good reporters, and we'll explain all of it in the afternoon, but that last link from Silverstein explains a lot of it. (Gary Parrish, Eye on College Basketball / CBS Sports | Kevin Brockway, The Gainesville Sun | Jeff Goodman, ESPN | Josh Newman, ZagsBlog | Adam Silverstein of Only Gators)

More on Patric Young and Will Yeguete taking up for Kaedyn Love: Really just a great story. (Liam Jones, Hail Florida Hail)

Your Gators moment of zen: They love each other!

What would your preferred use of Purifoy be? Are you excited about Valdez Showers getting carries? Would you rather hang out with Chandler Parsons or Chris Rainey? (I'm taking Rainey; he wouldn't make me feel short.) The comments are yours.
