Will the Gators cut down the nets: Of course we're talking about cutting down the nets after winning the SEC regular season championship. They should beat Vanderbilt, right? Thought so. (Jason Lieser, The Palm Beach Post)

It's also senior night: Kenny Boynton, Erik Murphy and Mike Rosario will play their final home game tonight. It would be a fitting win for sure. It's also hard to believe that Boynton was once the No. 12 overall recruit according to one source, so hopefully this will make up for his failure to live up to the one-and-done hype. (David Jones, The Tampa Tribune)

Florida-Vanderbilt preview: Vanderbilt is just 1-13 in their last 14 trips to the O'Dome. And Vanderbilt has had some very good teams over those years. I'm going to go with a Gators victory. Make it a big one. (Christian D'Andrea, Anchor of Gold)

Florida-Vanderbilt preview II: I still think the SEC basketball overall standings look weird (and dumb) without divisions. (CBS Sports)

Richie Martin out for about a month: Kind of a big blow to a baseball team that is struggling out of the gate. But hey, the real season doesn't begin until the regional playoffs, if the Gators even make it that far. (Alex Gray, Gator Country)

Florida State and Boise State to play two: The Seminoles and Broncos have agreed to play a home-and-home series in 2019 and 2020 where the schools will exchange a $400,000 payout for each game. It appears that in least those two years, the Gators won't have to carry the Seminoles' out of conference schedule by themselves. (David Hale, Nole Nation | ESPN / Bud Elliott, Tomahawk Nation)

New NCAA recruiting guidelines: I think it is absolutely hilarious that the chump coaches and schools like Randy Edsall at Maryland and some random guy at Arkansas are freaking out about the new guidelines the NCAA has implemented for college recruiting. Wait, is Georgia a chump school? (Dennis Dodd, CBS Sports) (Ray Giler, New York Times) -- Also, there is your Grey Lady link for the day. Now you can't say that I never did it.
