One of the perks of coaching at a school that has a big time football program is that you get to bring recruits on visits during the big games. There might not be a bigger football game this weekend than the Florida Gators vs the LSU Tigers. Both schools are ranked in the AP Top-10, and a win will instantly vault either team into prime position for the National Title game.
Bringing basketball recruits into this environment is a key strategy for Billy Donovan. He understands the recruiting game, and wants to drop kids in front of 90,000 screaming fans at The Swamp.
So it's no surprise that this is a big weekend for the Gators basketball team.
The Gators are already loaded (and should be a lock for preseason No. 1 next year) and will be hosting two committed players in Kasey Hill and Chris Walker. Hill (No. 8) and Walker (No. 9) are both top-10 recruits according to ESPN.
But that's just the beginning.
Florida has a huge weekend. No. 4, 6 &...

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Jeff Driskel prefers life on the move.
He doesnt know any other way after growing up in a Navy family.
He definitely is not a video-game kid. Hes not a big TV watcher, said Mary Driskel, Jeffs mom. Hes always active, always wanting to do something.
Driskels need for movement holds true whether he is on the field as the Gators dual-threat quarterback or trying...
Granted, what follows isn’t the highest quality of video, but even though it is substandard, the message deciphered from viewing it reads loud and clear: slow motion video of this rather portly, somewhat older LSU Tigers fan boogeying down while celebrating during LSU’s game against Towson last weekend is oddly — and more importantly, disturbingly hypnotic. Don’t [...]
Mike Gillislee ran for a career-high 146 yards and two touchdowns, bringing No. 10 Florida to life in the second half as the Gators beat fourth-ranked LSU 14-6 Saturday.
Led by Gillislee and a dominant defense, Florida's grind-it-out victory provided a signature win for coach Will Muschamp in his second season in Gainesville. It was the program's first win against a ranked...
While Tyrann Mathieu may have said that ‘Honey Badger don’t care” back in 2011 and the early part of 2012, he seems to be singing a different tune as it comes to a possible return to the LSU Tigers football team in 2013. Simply put, the Honey Badger is doing everything possible to prove that he does care.
After being permanently dismissed from the LSU football team just prior...
The dismissal of Tyrann Mathieu turned out to be one of only several episodes of misfortune for LSU, which hits the toughest part of its schedule with a handful of key players unable to play or hobbled.
At least four players who were projected starters in early August won't be on the field Saturday for the fourth-ranked Tigers (5-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) at No. 10 Florida...
All you need to know on the 2012 Florida Gators offense straight from the guy who knows them best at FightinGators.com.
Before the Gators even rolled into Baton Rouge last season, they were already pinned with a deficit. LSU hosted No. 17 UF perched as the top-ranked team in the country. But defensive tackle Omar Hunter said the Gators walked into the matchup feeling ready. They thought they were prepared. But Hunter said he walked out of Tiger Stadium feeling sick.
