"SEC CHAMPS" inquiry: Former Gators quarterback Shane Matthews went on radio Monday and said Florida would get to Atlanta. Others concurred.

Per Treon Harris Q's: Florida loves the former Booker T Washington standout and (early indications) are Harris will see snaps come fall in situational packages. Harris isnt a hot topic right now because he's not in spring camp. He did, however, pass up his spring break last week to be in Gainesville and observe practice for the week. Harris may factor into UF's official backup job, but right now the Gators are assessing whether Grier is capable/game ready or more primed for a redshirt season.

The O'Connell Center name won't change but in the near future the court will (very likely) be named after Billy Donovan.

JLS: Everyone not named -- including Driskel -- will be ready for spring camp. Purpose of piece is to illustrate how many players wont participate in camp.

Young's had an up-and-down career, much-maligned (and deservedly so) at times but that was an incredible play to seal a win.

Gators actually gained 7 yards on play two guys blocked each other! That was one of their most positive plays all game against GaSouthern!

Florida kept up with the Joneses, and that's what's most important. Schools like Florida and Georgia are actually at a disadvantage on NSD (and during the entire process as a whole) bc they dont oversign. Both have an exact amount of scholarships accounted for, so when Adoree' Jackson doesnt commit to UF that scholarship goes un-used or is filled at a later date. Schools that dont OS can't give out two offers at the same time and just hope one prospect doesnt sign. It's tricky and Muschamp actually commented on this very subject yesterday. "You need to know where you are, and you've gotta have some hard conversations, and you don't get into much of the fanfare of signing day and all that. You need to know, to be fair for the University of Florida, I need to know where we are with a young man. And that's to be fair to our program and what we need to do moving forward, and sometimes people work with you a little bit and sometimes they don't, and that's part of it." As for Florida's haul: I think it's an effective class. No linebackers (especially BUCK position guys) is concerning and I dont know that much about Powell but a game-changing tailback (or playmaker) was a key miss, overall though, the Gators filled needs (QB, OL, WR) and added serious depth (DL, DBs).

"How can Muschamp let recruits flip to other schools?" -- 10 of Florida's 24 signees were once committed to other schools -- including four FSU prospects and one UM prospect.

46 arrests? What in the world are you talking about?

Not so sure about that Walker info. Not saying it won't happen but it's becoming more and more possible he may never play this season. The NCAA is really dragging its feet on any sort of ruling either way.

All "stars" according to Rivals.com. Other recruiting services rank Florida's commits much differently -- both good and bad in some cases.

For thiose asking: There will be a recruiting update in a day or two. I plan on doing one or two a week until NSD with so much movement happening.

Orlando Cane: Summers coached at Louisville with Petrino -- a 41-9 record in four seasons. The Cards were pretty darn good before Charlie got there and reinvigorated the program.

Florida isnt backing out of this game. Unlike bowl money, Florida gets all $6 mil (reported number) to play. That's a lot of cash.

Florida's schedule come 2017 should be crazy tough: potentially nine conference games, neutral site date with Michigan and (likely) home against FSU.

Muschamp IS NOT BLOCKING ANY TRANSFERS. Rumors of such are false. Murphy is free to go where ever he chooses. The mudslinging was poor on both sides but considering the turmoil surrounding Florida right now, it made little sense for Muschamp to get involved in a public spat. The situation could've been handled better but miscommunication caused it to unravel. Muschamp definitely wanted Murphy to stay and compete, but TM didnt feel like he'd get a fair shake at the starting job and thinks he can be a definitive starter somewhere else.

Here's why yesterday's departures are still news: depth. Think that wasnt a problem for FLorida this year? No matter the quality of these kids, they were all on scholarship and the Gators lost several o-linemen (leaving them with lots of underclassmen next season), another quarterback and a former five-star tight end.

THere's no mention of Sharpe because I'm saving his commitment for another post. I've written about Chris Walker here several times including just the other day. So instead of calling me out on research, try reading. Sheesh.

Florida missed a bowl for the first time in 22 seasons. The chances they don't make a bowl game in 2014 are quite slim. Quite.

As reported in the story, UF had nothing to do with the flight change. Delta made the call to flip flights in hope of simply delaying the private passengers a short while as the other plane was being fixed. However, the flight was ultimately cancelled causing the major mishap. There's no NCAA violation or even stain on UF.
