Muschamp mixed on Gators' draft results: Muschamp is right that players need to be better informed about their draft status if they leave early, but I'm not so sure how to go about that. Players have risen and fallen in the draft since the inception of the draft. (Zach Abolverdi, The Gainesville Sun)
Gators check in at No. 23 in Athlon Sports' preseason issue: The overall ranking sounds about right at this point. Though I'm not so sure the SEC East standing is accurate. (Athlon Sports)
SEC football schedule rankings: The Gators play the last two national champions on the road, yet somehow come in at No. 3. (Pat Dooley, The Gainesville Sun)
Joe Haden gets paid: The Gators' best corner since Lito Sheppard signed a five year, $68 million extension that will pay him $45 million in guaranteed money according to reports. (Associated Press, The Gainesville Sun)
Flying under radar for NFL success: I'm sure you could fill out a list from every conference, but the SEC's list is pretty impressive. (Chris Low, SEC Blog/ESPN)
Baseball finally wins midweek: They used a big second inning to beat USF and win their first midweek game in almost a month. (Nick De La Torre, GatorCountry)
Patric Young invited to NBA Combine: Young was one of 60 players to officially be given an invite. (Matt Norlander, Eye on College Basketball/CBS Sports)
Anthony DeScalafani called up by Miami: The former Gator will make his big league debut today in a start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. (GatorZone)
Monuments Men: Good movie.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty: Not so much.
Donald Sterling: Just another guy who doesn't know when to shut the hell up. Less is more.
Doc Rivers is right: Replay sucks. Get rid of it in all sports.
Barking dog: My neighbor decided to get a greyhound looking dog over the weekend and I'm pretty sure that the only time it's not barking is 2-4 p.m.
Best dog breeds: Big fan of hound dogs. The only thing that bothers me with a lot of dog breeds is that once they become popular, they succumb to over breading and lose the exact traits that make them great. It doesn't take all that long either. Anyway...
- 1) Beagle: Ever since I was young, I've always held beagles in high regard. As for their ability to howl, just train them not too. They're easily smart enough to figure it out early.
- 2) English Redtick: My parents got one (well, almost a full-breed) a little under a decade ago and it's the most mild-mannered dog you'll ever see.
- 3) Doberman Pinscher: The perfect dog for protection.
- 4) German shorthaired pointer: Want to go hunting?
- 5) Bull Terrier, Labrador or a Husky: I've got no problem with the three.
