The Bull Gator:
The fastest of fastest previews due to serious time constraints (read: I got seriously sidetracked by a whole lot of nothing this morning). And I blame the 11:00 AM start time. It’s the Florida Gators. It’s the Tennessee Volunteers. It’s SEC basketball.

Sometime within the next couple of days, you’ll come to The Bull Gator – as I’m sure you all have faithfully for years – and notice a difference. Colors, logo, layout, even name (GASP!) will have changed. Not to worry, it will all still be the me you’ve come to love or loathe, just under the umbrella of a network with some great opportunities.Later today – or Monday,...
The Florida Gators have 11 prospects that are uncommitted and playing the Under Armour All-American Game and the Army All-American Bowl this week. FightinGators.com takes a look at the 11 and gives you our thoughts as a group of just what these prospects have looked like and where they might land in college as we head down the stretch toward signing day on February 1.
While much has been made about Florida's outstanding play at home, the Gators are hoping to see that success finally carry over to the road.
Seeking its first road win of the season, No. 13 Florida looks to extend its winning streak over Tennessee to five when both teams open SEC play Saturday.
The Gators (12-3), whose average of 85.4 points ranks in the top five in the country...
Six Florida Gators commits took the field in St. Peterburg, Florida for the UnderArmour All-American game. The top talent from around the nation showcased their skills in the game.

This has been a rough season for Erik Murphy, who already missed some time with a knee injury. Today, Murphy left practice early after teammate Patric Young accidentally elbowed him above the right eye.
Murphy needed stitches, but is not expected to miss Saturday’s game at Tennessee (11 a.m., ESPN2), which will be Florida’s SEC opener.

It's a label the Florida Gators will have to live with until proving they can win a game on an opponent's home floor. And they're not going to win many playing like they did in Saturday's 67-56 defeat at Tennessee in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams.
It didn't take long to figure out Saturday wasn't going to go Florida's way. The Gators struggled on offense from the opening tip. Florida came into the game averaging 85.4 points per game, but Tennessee slowed the Gators to just 56 points in Knoxville. Florida head coach Billy Donovan was disappointed in the way his team created offense.
Tennessee basketball changed this offseason. Former head coach Bruce Pearl was fired in light of NCAA investigations around the program, and first-year coach Cuonzo Martin has put his own touch on the way the Volunteers play. It's different offensive schemes and less full court press than under Pearl, forcing the Gators to scout an entirely different team than in recent years.
The University of Tennessee announced today that sophomore wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers underwent a minor procedure Friday morning to repair an injured right index finger.
