Streaks on the line for Gators against Auburn: All the streaks involve winning, including a 17-game win streak that is a school record. (Franz Beard, GatorCountry)

Auburn a trap game?: If you were to ask Billy Donovan, the biggest problem the Gators could face this year is contentment within the locker room. Something tells me though that Donovan is the best man the Gators could wish for to make sure that doesn't happen. (Jonathan Czupryn, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Jeremy Darveau added to coaching staff: The new assistant offensive line coach comes to the Gators from Southwest Minnesota State. On another note, Southwest Minnesota State sounds like a future opening-week opponent. (Edgar Thompson, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)

Arman Hall named SEC Runner of the Week: This is the second time this year that Hall has received this accolade. Hall is currently third in the country 400m and is on the 4x400m relay team that has the best time in the world this year. (GatorZone)

Swimming off to great start at SEC meet: Both the men's and women's swim teams are in third-place after day one of the SEC Championships. (GatorZone)

Florida sweeps Florida State: The women's tennis team improved to 54-1 all time against the Seminoles with a 7-0 victory yesterday. Apparently Florida State doesn't really play tennis. (Ian Cohen, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Josh Harvey-Clemons released from Georgia: Apparently it was yet another substance abuse. (David Ching, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Black Sails: Is it just me or has Starz surpassed HBO when it comes to having better shows?

House of Cards is back: Finally!!!

Olympic hockey: The United States plays the Czech Republic today at noon.

Top five mini-series ever: I was going to go with the Gators' coaching Mt. Rushmore but I had a quick change of heart this morning.

  • 1) Lonesome Dove - It's not even close.
  • 2) The Stand - I was about ten years old when this was on television and it introduced me to Stephen King. I think The Dark Tower is the better book(s), but until they make that...
  • 3) Band of Brothers - I can't believe that this came out nearly fifteen years ago.
  • 4) John Adams - David Mccullough is the best history writer since James Michener.
  • 5) The Thorn Birds - Surprisingly well done.

Just missing the cut: Roots, North and South, The Bible, Hatfield & McCoys, Jesus of Nazareth, The Pillars of the Earth, The Kennedys and Shogun.
