Why one AP Poll voter put Florida No. 1: I don't really get why Syracuse fans would care, honestly. The polls don't matter. (Kevin Brockway, Hoops Scoop | The Gainesville Sun / Brent Axe, The (Syracuse) Post-Standard)
Florida No. 1 in SB Nation power rankings: After all, I wrote these, spent hours on them, and am not so deluded that I think they matter. (Andy Hutchins, SB Nation)
Three Gators named conference player of the week: Scottie Wilbekin, Lauren Haeger, and Shannon Gilroy all get deserved honors. Meanwhile, no Florida gymnast as SEC Gymnast of the Week for the first time this year, which I'll hopefully have time to explain later today. (GatorZone | GatorZone | GatorZone)
Wilbekin named Cousy Award finalist: I couldn't name four point guards who are better. (GatorZone)
Did the Big 12 screw up by inviting TCU? Good question, and good answering of it here. (San Antonio Red Raider, Viva The Matadors)
Civil rights monument defaced at Ole Miss: Because awful people still exist. (The Ghost of Jay Cutler, Red Cup Rebellion)
Your Gators moments of zen:

Florida's welcome video to the Class of 2018 is really, really good. (Two of the best people I've met are dancing in it at 0:42, though, so I'm biased.)
Leon Orr, Raphael Andrades, the smack cam concept, and one funny face.
Are you worried about Kasey Hill being out? Do you care that Florida got a No. 1 vote? Are you reading my power rankings? (Be honest.) The comments are yours.
