Florida No. 6 in college sports in revenue: At just over $147 million in 2014-15, Florida ranks behind just Lone Star State titans Texas A&M and Texas, Big Ten powerhouses Ohio State and Michigan, and Alabama. And while the Gators' revenues were likely up because of donations to make the indoor practice facility a reality and get the O'Dome renovation started, their subsidy was smaller than Alabama's, and those two capital projects combined aren't nearly as massive as the renovation of Kyle Field that helped swell Texas A&M's coffers.

Your Gators moments of zen: Poor Amanda Butler's chin.

I've never seen Tanked, but Titus O'Neil — who should be back from an impossibly stupid WWE suspension soon — was on it, and getting a Gator Head.

Your non-Gators moment of zen: I've intentionally watched exactly zero seconds of Game of Thrones (I know), but this video of Sophie Turner "singing" "Hello" as Jon Snow and then really going after a lip-synced version of Justin Bieber's (awful) tweak of The Cardigans' perfect "Lovefool" makes me grin broadly. I assume Sansa Stark is not precisely like this — but if she were, I'd have HBO.
