Will Muschamp doesn't want FCS teams on the schedule anymore: The reason being the college football playoffs and NOT because of any possible future embarrassment of losing to another one of them. (Edward Aschoff, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Nick Saban thinks Muschamp and the Gators will rebound: I think part of it is because Muschamp is a Saban disciple and part of it is because nobody wants to count the Gators out. Given the Gators' history since 1990, that wouldn't be a wise move. (Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun)

Billy Donovan says future not guaranteed at Florida: He's already "coached" in the NBA for six days, but he doesn't want to be labeled a liar if he makes the jump again. I can't say I blame him. (Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel)

SEC basketball schedule to feature three permanent opponents: Right now it's just Kentucky but the thinking is the two other teams are going to be Tennessee and Georgia. Does it even matter in basketball? (Edgar Thompson, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)

Ciarra Brewer among those honored by SEC: Brewer was named Co-Women's Field athlete of the year as she claimed her third straight triple jump SEC championship. (The Gainesville Sun)

Pouncey has no regrets about 2013 season: Not even a single letter. (Associated Press, The Gainesville Sun)

O'Sullivan named SEC COY: Logan Shore was also voted freshman of the year. Congrats to the both of them! (GatorZone)

CBS releases SEC television schedule: It still bothers me that our game with Tennessee doesn't begin CBS' college football coverage. I guess that is what happens when you beat a team nine times in a row. (Jon Cooper, Saturday Down South)

French Open: There have been a lot of upsets so far. Also, Serena Williams is down a set as of this writing. Interesting.

Venus Williams: Lost in the French Open this morning. The announcer said Venus is a legend. She's most definitely not.

Retirement plan: Why would anybody get a job these days (unless it's just a job to survive) that doesn't include one?

Summer reading: Because reading one of: The Old Man and the Sea, Where the Red Fern Grows and The Secret Garden is all that difficult. Now if it was My Secret Garden, I would understand.

Greatest 1990's movies: By popular demand, this is the topic. I will say I struggled mightily with this one.

  • 1) The Shawshank Redemption
  • 2) Saving Private Ryan
  • 3) The Sandlot
  • 4) Forrest Gump
  • 5) Goodfellas

Just missing the list: Hook, The Rescuers Down Under, American Pie, Jurassic Park, American History X, Happy Gilmore, The Green Mile, Heat, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Boondock Saints, A League of Their Own, The Hunt for Red October ... actually, I'm not sure if that's my Top 5. It's so freaking close. There are many more that I can't even think of. All I know is that The Shawshank Redemption is No. 1 and The Sandlot gets one of the other four spots.
