Florida moves up to No. 13 in CFP rankings: This improves Florida’s chances of making a New Year’s Six bowl, if only slightly. (Jason Kirk, SB Nation | Bill Connelly, SB Nation)

When will Emory Jones, other freshmen play? I still think it’s this week and in the bowl game, while prepping as a backup for FSU. But it’s neat that we’re talking about this and not yelling “START EMORY” after a loss to South Carolina, huh?

Long snapper Ryan Farr continues to entertain: His air guitaring during “Won’t Back Down” was a highlight of last weekend’s broadcast. (Baileigh Williams, Gator Country)

Florida men’s basketball still figuring it out: I mean, obviously. But that Mike White has to do this much hunting for an identity on a team stocked with players that are now upperclassmen is maybe not a great thing? (Pat Dooley, The Gainesville Sun)

A note on National Signing Day: Today is the first National Signing Day of the 2018-19 academic year for many sports, most notably men’s basketball, and Florida is signing one hell of a class in that sport. But you know, mostly, who those players are, and I’m not about to write separate posts for each one of them to tell you “Scottie Lewis signed” and little else, so expect a recap of all of Florida’s various Signing Day announcements on Thursday.
