Jacob Eason down to Florida, Georgia: Eason finally spoke on the record to his hometown paper after more than a week of his high school and personal quarterback coach doing most of the talking in his stead, and told it that he's committed to Georgia "right now" but is "going to have to decide between" Georgia and Florida. If this sounds familiar to you, it's because it's talk that isn't far off from many other prospects for whom "final decisions" mean flips.

Eason's pretty definitely down to just Florida and Georgia, though, which would mean that Mark Richt's new landing spot at Miami is now out of the picture. That's probably good news for Florida: While Eason could step in and compete at quarterback for either the Gators or Dawgs, the Gators are the team of that twosome with a head coach who isn't a first-timer or former defensive coordinator, and an offensive coordinator who is on staff. The differences between Florida and Georgia are crystalline; to my eye, they would seem to favor Florida. (David Krueger, The Herald)

Is the ACC gaining on the SEC with new hires? New SEC hires include a defensive coordinator who turned in the nation's No. 1 D in S&P+, a defensive coordinator who turned in the nation's No. 15 D in S&P+, and a former SEC head coach who went to the Sugar Bowl. New ACC hires include the guy who got fired for the first guy, a head coach who has won 10 games just once this decade, and a MAC head coach whose team lost by 29 to Butch Jones. You know, as long as we're cherry-picking... (Pat Dooley, The Gainesville Sun)

Florida women come back to beat Arkansas State: The Gators erased a 12-point deficit in the third quarter and never trailed in the fourth. I'm beginning to think this team might be special. (GatorZone)
