The Bull Gator:
Freshman cornerback Willie Bailey will transfer after one season with the Florida Gators during which he saw no action on the field. Bailey was to receive a redshirt after not getting on the field during the 2012 season. Despite coming back in 2013 with four full years of eligibility remaining, Bailey decided to look for playing time elsewhere.
A three-star recruit out of Hallandale, FL (Hallandale), Bailey was one of the top 100 players in the state of Florida coming out of high school according to 247Sports. He was considered one of those fly-under-the-radar types and committed to Florida over Miami. He had an uphill battle to crack the depth chart, but he enrolled early and by all accounts had a productive spring. Throughout the 2012 season, Bailey reportedly fell back though. Not seeing a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of cracking the depth chart, he decided it was time to move on. No word yet and where Bailey will resurface.

The Florida Gators are having a big recruiting run and hope for It to continue. Four commitments in the last week are leading up to a big recruiting weekend with some of the offensive weapons of the future in Gainesville. At least five official visitors are scheduled and four of them are skill players on offense.
Billy Donovan has two years remaining on his contract with Florida.
There are plenty of familiar names on both teams from last season’s matchup between Arizona and Florida in Gainesville. The Gators were the only ranked team last season when the teams met, coming in at No. 12, but the returning experience is a major reason why both teams are ranked in the top ten for this matchup. The scene shifts as the teams will tip off on Saturday at 10 p.m. EST in Tucson.
The Florida defense is one of the top units in the country, but there’s still something missing from the team. It’s the production from the team’s best scorer. Kenny Boynton is going through one of the worst stretches in his career during the early season, well under his normal point average and shooting percentages. The added responsibility of playing point guard could be slowing him down.
The Arizona Wildcats came back from a large deficit to beat the Florida Gators on a last second shot. Read on to find out who the player of the game was, which plays were important, and more.
