Five-star wing Scottie Lewis commits to Florida: Much more on this later, but Florida is building its best on-paper basketball recruiting class ever, and the future is blindingly bright for Mike White’s program at the moment.

Louis Murphy to be Mr. Two Bits for LSU: If Florida can’t swing Tim Tebow being Mr. Two Bits for a) a game he’s in town for as a result of SEC Nation duties that b) doubles as the home game of a given season, I wonder if/when it will actually get him for that. (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)

Dan Mullen wants students to set tone early: Every coach wants this at all times, but it would still be nice to see the student section more than about 60 percent full at 3:30 p.m. sharp this Saturday. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators)

Lawrence Wright is Gators’ SEC Football Legend for 2018: Could we get an oral history of him originating “If you ain’t a Gator, you’re Gator bait?” as a phrase used by Florida to stamp out the stupid and ahistorical suggestion that Florida fans use it because it was once a racist term? (Florida Gators)

How Todd Grantham’s pressure became a problem: More on this later today, but I would like to note that Florida’s social media team very probably used #FourthAndGrantham as a hashtag because someone Florida’s social media team pays attention to turned that phrase (with a bit of profanity) to applause immediately after Donovan Stiner’s sack on Saturday.
