Robert Clark and Gerald Christian, former Dwyer High School players who left the Gators in October, have not decided where they plan to play next. Both expect to take the upcoming spring semester off, which means they will not go through spring practices with their new teams. “I doubt I’ll be ready to make a decision by then, so I’ll probably take a semester off to take my visits,” Clark said. Missing the upcoming spring practices is fairly inconsequential to Christian and Clark because they will not be eligible to play again until 2013. Even if they miss this spring, they will practice with their new programs next fall and in spring of 2013. Neither player has received his release papers from Florida and they cannot talk to other schools. Both said they were told they would get their papers at the end of the season. There should be significant interest in both players. Wisconsin recently called Dwyer coach Jack Daniels about Christian and Clark. Christian said in October the top t...

Two more players leave Gator nation

With the Florida Gators continuing to struggle in the win column (6-6, 3-5 SEC), players are starting to pack their bags and move forward. Most recently, head coach Will Muschamp lost two more players who elected to transfer on Tuesday. Redshirt freshmen safety Josh Shaw and defensive end Lynden Trail have departed Gainesville to pursue football careers elsewhere. Shaw saw playing...

Mark Pantoni's Departure And Its Impact On The Gators

Earlier this week, a piece of the Florida Gators' puzzle was removed. Director of Football Administration Mark Pantoni left the Gators to join former head coach Urban Meyer in Columbus, OH with the Ohio State Buckeyes. It can be hard to valuate the loss of someone without the word "coach" somewhere in their title, but there is a definite impact in this case.Pantoni...

Muschamp Looking for D-Line Help

Florida head football coach Will Muschamp has made it very clear that the Florida Gators have to get bigger, stronger, tougher, and deeper in the trenches on both sides for the ball. With that in mind, the defensive line recruiting board is pretty deep and talented for this 2012 class. The Gators have three committed and as many as five more could be added by signing day.

Florida Faces Challenge in Syracuse Zone

The Gators will face another tough road test Friday night. Just over two weeks after playing at Ohio State, Florida travels to Syracuse to take on the Orange. The Gators have poured in three-pointers early in the season, but their high-powered offense will get its toughest test of the season while going up against the Syracuse zone defense.

Gators Commitment Gets Playoff Win

In a comeback victory, the Armwood Hawks took out the Gainesville High School Hurricanes 17-14, securing their spot in the Class 6A state semifinals. Armwood senior running back and Florida Gators commitment Matt Jones was held to only 23 yards rushing on 14 carries, but caught a nice 43-yard pass for a touchdown.

BASKETBALL: F Erik Murphy could be back from injury next week

Florida starting F Erik Murphy will miss his third straight game tomorrow with a knee injury, but the damage was not as bad as the Gators thought. Murphy could play Wednesday against Arizona. Murphy has minor tears in his meniscus, though they are not severe and it appears as though his most significant injury is a bone bruise in his knee. Coach Billy Donovan ruled Murphy out for...

Bowl Break: 10 Things To Keep An Eye On Before Gators Play Bowl Game

This isn't the storyline heading into bowl season they wanted, but it's an intriguing one. It may or may not be the bowl game they imagined when the season started, but it has the potential to garner plenty of attention. The Gators limped off the field at 6-6 following a loss in the regular-season finale to Florida State, but they still have something to play for when their...

Florida Offense Struggles Without Young

When Patric Young went out in the first half because of foul trouble, the Florida offense took a hit. The Gators were able to keep the game close until the second half when the offense was able to shoot the ball more effectively. Florida head coach Billy Donovan didn’t think that was a coincidence. Young opened up the floor for the Florida shooters to get going in a 72-68 loss at Syracuse.

The Gators Cheerleaders or the Dazzlers?

One of the nicest things about college sports is that you get a double dose of cheerleaders.   What I mean is, there are two entertainment squads at most schools.   There’s usually a dancing squad and then there’s a cheerleading squad.   Cheerleaders have the big pom poms and perform with males.   The dancers on the other hand are all females and usually wear spandex...

Unselfish and Uncomplicated, Yeguete Giving Gators Just What they Need Heading Into Showdown at Syracuse (7 p.m., ESPN)

The junior varsity was playing when the team arrived, which gave one of Goporo's players a moment to marvel at the crowd in the bleachers.
