Florida offering free tickets to Hurricane Florida evacuees: You have to have a North or South Carolina ID, and you have to watch Florida-Colorado State, but, hey, free tickets! For once, I’m happy Florida followed Tennessee’s lead. (Florida Gators)

Florida-Colorado State broadcast info: I have no idea why Florida publishes these in the days leading up to games; they should go up on game days. No one is Googling this stuff on a Thursday or a Friday unless the game is on Thursday or Friday. Anyway! (Will Pantages, Florida Gators)

R.J. Raymond walks into a scholarship — again: Cool story. (Jake Dreilinger, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Lucas Krull impressing in early Gators days: I would’ve liked to see more of him against Kentucky, actually. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators)

Gators hosting visitors for Colorado State: Burning an official visit to this game would be dumb, obviously, but having commits come on unofficial visits a week after a bad loss is a good sign. (Andrew Spivey, Gator Country)

Florida-Colorado State, a game “built on car chases, pizza, and stupidity”: Do you think they maybe don’t like Jim McElwain back in Colorado? Yikes. It should be noted that the author is one of the beat writers who covered McElwain’s departure for Florida extensively while at another paper. (Matt L. Stephens, Denver Post)

Florida volleyball ready for Gators Invitational: After knocking off Florida State in Tallahassee earlier this week, the Gators return home with a chance to finally put together a winning streak. (Katie Callahan, Florida Gators)
