It's not often that the words University of Florida and Harry Potter are used in the same sentence but thanks to UF football offensive coordinator Brent Pease, it has happened.
Back on Wednesday, Pease posted a rather unique photo of the Gators quarterbacks Jeff Driskel and Tyler Murphy with everyone's favorite wizard:

New Florida Gators wide receivers coach Joker Phillips appears to have gotten the knack for grabbing the attention of fans and potential recruits with his brilliant yet bizarre forays into the use of social media. In late March, Phillips played upon his nickname with a creepy tweet featuring a Photoshop of Heath Ledger’s portrayal of Joker with the hashtag “#ComePlayWRforTheJoker”...
Coming off a year in which he was anything but sure, Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter is set to count $2.7 against the cap in 2013. On Saturday the team selected kicker Caleb Sturgis out of Florida with the 166th overall pick in the NFL draft.
Sturgis was the first kicker selected in the draft ahead of Dustin Hopkins who later was selected by the Bills with pick 177.

Florida guard Jessamen Dunker, suspended since allegedly stealing a scooter in January, has decided to transfer.
Coach Will Muschamp made the announcement Wednesday, saying Dunker ''felt like he needed a fresh start.''

PICK: Sharrif Floyd, DT, FloridaANALYSIS: Floyd's free fall finally stops at 23 overall; 20 spots lower than I had him going in my last mock. This is obviously an amazing pick for Minnesota, who fills a big need and gets amazing value. The Vikings needed someone to pair with Williams, and now they have a guy with amazing potential. This might be the best value pick of the draft...
Gators defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd and Noles defensive back Xavier Rhodes were both selected by Minnesota in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
PICK: Matt Elam, S, Florida
ANALYSIS: Baltimore ended the draft on a good note, by taking one of the best players available. He also fills one of the biggest positions of need at safety, were Reed and Pollard are both gone. Elam will be a day one starter and could make a big impact early in his career. Baltimore still has a ton of work to do in this draft, but they are off...
Florida Gators wide receiver coach Joker Phillips has taken the social media marketing up a notch with this Gator-Man game.
Florida ignited a season-high three home runs Friday night to stab a 7-2 victory against SEC East rival Tennessee. The Gators flexed four freshmen pitchers, holding the Vols scoreless through eight innings.
Florida special teams coach Jeff Choate knows the caliber of situation he’s stepping into this season. He has weapons to play with in all facets of special teams. The Gators return one of the best punters in the country with dynamic returning options in the punt and kick game. Florida will have to replace the best kicker in school history, but Choate has a lot of options on special teams.
The Gators closed spring practice and have already started looking toward the start of fall practice. Florida head coach Will Muschamp spoke during the Southeastern Conference Teleconference on Wednesday morning, talking about permanent conference rivals, Jeff Driskel's maturity and the plan for Loucheiz Purifoy.
