Found December 07, 2012 on The Bull Gator:
I fully admit that I’m a football fan first. I’m probably also a football fan second and even third. In terms of ranking sports, basketball comes in behind soccer and hockey. (Yes, I just said that and I do mean it. Feel free to never read anything I ever write again.) But that ranking changes when it comes to the Florida Gators. It’s still football first and always will be, but basketball climbs leaps and bounds and plants itself firmly in the number two spot. There still isn’t much of a comparison, but if the football team beating those nasty, hated Florida State Seminoles is a delicious piece of pumpkin pie this time of year, the basketball team doing the same less than two weeks later is the whipped cream. I like beating FSU in any sport really. I love blowing them out (or demolishing them as the ESPN headline stated). I’ll admit that I watched the game in bits and pieces. Life has taken a commanding lead in the priority race over blogging this year. I have no prob...

A Look Ahead: The Defensive Line

The Florida Gators had arguably one of the more feared defensive lines in college football in 2012. That line looks to be a whole lot different in 2013. Graduation and NFL attrition will take its toll on the defensive front, but the Gators will have some answers. Here is a look at what to expect and what the Gators need when the clock strikes 12 on the Sugar Bowl game on Jan 2.

Gators cruise to blowout win at FSU

No. 6 Florida scored its third fewest points this season, but it didn’t matter. The Gators still won 72-47. In its first true road test of the season, Florida went to Tallahassee and came away with its fourth straight win over the Seminoles in a game that wasn’t close from the opening tipoff. The 25-point margin was the largest for any team in the rivalry for games played in Tallahassee.

No. 6 Florida 72, Florida St. 47

Boynton's layup with 8:57 left gave the Gators their largest lead, 62-25.

Gators place four on SEC All-Freshman Team

The Gators took a leap to their 11-1 record this season because of experienced players, but there were still multiple freshmen that got on the field. They were rewarded on Thursday when the SEC announced the All-Freshman team and Florida placed Jonathan Bullard, Dante Fowler, D.J. Humphries and Antonio Morrison on the list.

Football success no surprise to Donovan

Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan admits he doesn’t know much about the Xs and Os involved in football, but he stays in tune with the team as much as possible. After the Florida football team was pounded at home by Alabama in 2011, Donovan quickly realized the football program was in good hands under Will Muschamp, who was then in his first year as a head coach. Donovan...
