Which Florida team wins the next national title? The annual debate revs up again, and lacrosse and men's track and field are the candidates here. I think men's basketball, women's tennis, and gymnastics (despite a weird Friday loss at LSU) have damn good shots, too; the key is that women's tennis and lacrosse seem like the title favorites, while gymnastics is one of many title contenders, men's track needs to replace a couple of key parts, and the NCAA Tournament makes men's basketball a crapshoot. (Josh Jurnovoy and Joe Morgan, The Independent Florida Alligator)
