The Weekend Review: Where everyone knows you're still counting the days until football.

Gators ping Texas: Florida's baseball team began its second consecutive College World Series on a high note, rallying to beat Texas, 8-4, in a game that began with a 3-0 Texas lead. Hudson Randall earned his 11th win of the season after allowing just one earned run in 6.2 innings, and Bryson Smith failed to make an out, going 2-for-2 with two runs, two RBI, and two walks. Florida next plays SEC East rival Vanderbilt tonight at 7 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2 and The SEC East is 3-0 in Omaha so far.

Young named finalist for USA U19 team: Florida's Patric Young was named a finalist for USA Basketball's under-19 team that will compete at the upcoming FIBA World Championships in Latvia. Florida guard Scottie Wilbekin was not named a finalist after being invited to the U19 camp; fellow Florida guard Bradley Beal declined an invitation to the camp earlier this month. Young could team with fellow Sunshine State product Khyle Marshall of Butler inside for Team USA.

Florida releases 2011 athletic budget: The University of Florida's athletic department released its budget for the 2011-12 school year, and it included a 2.2 percent increase to $99 million.
