Gators' softball team embraces high expectations, hopes for three-peat: Florida's five seniors (Kelsey Stewart, Aubree Munro, Taylor Schwarz, Taylore Fuller, and Kirsti Merritt) want to be known as one of the greatest classes in program history, and hope to be a part of a three time national championship winning team. Only one NCAA softball program has ever captured three consecutive national championships - UCLA in 1988, 1989 and 1990.

Florida will be playing its final game tonight of a three-game stretch against three teams each ranked in the top-12. (Kathy Cafazzo, Florida Gators)

SEC Commissioner declines to reduce spring break practice issue to "childhood use of Twitter": I mentioned in yesterday's CAB that the SEC was asking the NCAA to prevent football teams from holding spring practice during spring break, as an obvious response to Michigan's plans to do so in Florida at IMG Academy in Bradenton. Since then, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh tweeted about the attractiveness of "whining", which prompted that response from SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. (Sam Spiegelman, SEC Country)
