While teams across the country have already begun practice for the 2013-14 season, Florida head coach Billy Donovan chose to wait. The Gators are still waiting on guard Eli Carter (leg) and forward Will Yeguete (knee) to get healthy and neither will be on the court when Florida opens practice on Friday. The hope is that both will be ready when Florida opens the regular season on November 8.

Florida will open practice with Scottie Wilbekin on the floor and Will Yeguete and Eli Carter on the mend.
Coach Billy Donovan partially reinstated Wilbekin on Wednesday, saying the senior point guard will rejoin teammates at their first practice Friday.
Yeguete and Carter, meanwhile, have not been cleared to practice or play. Yeguete, a 6-foot-8 forward, is recovering from surgery...
Jeez Louise, it's Week 7 of the 2013 College Football season already. At SEC Football Blog Towers, I'm already crying my eyes out that the season is over....and it hasn't gone yet! Anyway, there will be no tears in Baton Rouge on Saturday afternoon when Florida rolls into Death Valley to play LSU. Last year Florida owned LSU, and LSU will be looking for a rematch against...
Yes, I am alive. And yes, my love of the Florida Gators hasn’t died. It has just been dormant on this one particular display vehicle. While active on other mediums, The Bull Gator site has been left out in the cold. My name is Joel and I haven’t posted anything on this site in 63 days.
In that time, the Gators have marched (if that’s one way of putting it) to a 4-1 start behind...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Sometimes, for whatever reasons, the grass appears greener somewhere else.
Often, a player transfers and is never heard from again. Other times the change of scenery works out.
Gators offensive lineman Max Garcia falls into the latter category.
Garcia has started all five games at left guard for Florida after sitting out last season due to NCAA transfer rules...
The 17th ranked Florida Gators will travel to Baton Rouge to face LSU on Saturday for what will be the toughest game of the early season. The 4-1 Gators have their hands full with a big time offense at LSU and many on the trip have bad memories of the game two years ago, the worst loss in the short tenure of head coach Will Muschamp. Fightin' Gators reporters Cody Jones and Amanda...
Florida travels to baton Rouge to take on perennial power LSU on Saturday. The Gators head to the bayou with a 4-1 record and will look to keep things going. Florida head coach Will Muschamp spoke to the national media about his team and the big game on Saturday.
While the rest of the SEC is busy piling up the points against one another, the Florida Gators' defense has remained as dominant as ever.
After starting his career at Florida, AC Leonard has found a home at Tennessee State.
A.C. Leonard, Tennessee State
Leonard is currently one of the top tight ends at the FCS level. Leonard caught eight passes for
99 yards for the Gators as a freshman in 2011. Off-the-field issues preceded his transfer to Tennessee State. Since joining the Tigers last year...
The Florida Gators are headed west to take on the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge. If you aren't pumped enough yet, this hype video should get you in the mood.
The numbers require a second look. LSU has been known for its physical, dominating defenses for a long time. This year, that isn’t the case. The Tigers took a big hit on the defensive side of the ball to the NFL Draft after last season, and it has shown this year. The Florida offense is growing in consistency under Tyler Murphy, but it will face an LSU defense unlike the Tigers’ recent units.
The Florida basketball program will host media day on Wednesday before starting practice on October 11. The Gators will try to find a new identity after losing three starters from last season in Kenny Boynton, Erik Murphy and Mike Rosario to graduation, but there are plenty of questions that surround the team as the start of practice gets closer.
This Florida Gators hype video for the LSU game will send goosebumps down your spine.

Perhaps overlooked in the Florida Gators win over the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday night, due to big performances from wide receiver Solomon Patton and cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy, was the career day from redshirt junior quarterback Tyler Murphy.
Making just the second start of his collegiate career, since the season-ending injury to...
There aren’t many positive memories for Ronald Powell when he thinks about Florida’s last trip to Baton Rouge. He dealt with stingers through the game that kept him off the field with his teammates. On the field, the outcome wasn’t much more enjoyable for the Gators. Florida suffered a 41-11 loss in the first career start for quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
The internal clock in Tyler Murphy’s head was ringing. It was time to go. He was running his first drive as the Florida quarterback against Tennessee, and he narrowly beat the pass rush of linebacker A.J. Johnson before scrambling for a first down. It was foreshadowing of how Murphy would impress the country in his first three games.
