Eight Gators headed to Indianapolis for NFL Combine: And they are, via Scott Carter...

  • DE Jonathan Bullard
  • CB Vernon Hargreaves III
  • DE Alex McCalister
  • TE Jake McGee
  • LB Antonio Morrison
  • S Keanu Neal
  • RB Kelvin Taylor
  • WR Demarcus Robinson

Florida's eight Combine invitees is one behind Alabama's nine for most in the SEC, and the Gators would probably have had nine if not for Brian Poole incurring an injury at the Senior Bowl that made him participating at the Combine improbable.

Following up with future Gators: Zach Abolverdi has new "here's a quote from someone" pieces on Stone Forsythe, Dre Massey, and Freddie Swain, all of them quick reads.

Florida men's golf nabs 2018 recruit: Mentioning this because a) why not? and b) Wocheng Ye, the commit in question, is also the youngest person to ever qualify for a European Tour event. Florida also has a No. 2 player in the 2016 class, Andy Zhang. (Brentley Romine, Golfweek)

Is the NBA's schedule starving players of sleep? Yeah, probably. (Tom Haberstroh, ESPN)

The Starters returns to Toronto triumphant: Part of the reason Alligator Army has never had a dedicated podcast is because I measure sports podcasts by the (impossible) standard of The Starters, which I miss having the time to listen to so dearly. (Bruce Arthur, Toronto Star)

Your Gators moments of zen:

Florida didn't win at South Carolina last night — about which more in just a bit — but Steve Spurrier and his wife Jerri (who got a degree from South Carolina last fall to go with degrees from Florida, because she's the best) showed up to support fellow '90s-era Florida fixture Amanda Butler and the Gators. One wonders if the Spurriers were quietly cheering for the Gators despite Steve's new job with the school.
