UF wants memorable tourney
Gators will rely on pitching as they begin region play today

Each At-Bat Crucial For Gators
Never mind games. University of Florida baseball coach Pat McMahon can recall the exact at-bat when he knew his young team would make something of this season.

Gators' quest begins today
His catcher refers to him as a bulldog. He's tough and fearless on the mound. And lately, Connor Falkenbach's emergence as a dominating starter has given Florida greater confidence in its pitching staff heading into this weekend's NCAA regional in Oklahoma City.

Gators' Falkenbach, Jeroloman a tough tandem
Brian Jeroloman was told in high school that he was too slow to play second base, that he would be a better fit at catcher.

Clearing the path to face the Canes
Florida eyes a matchup with Miami in a super regional but must get out of the Oklahoma City regional first.

Florida Gator Year In Review

Was it the year of the Gator? Not this time
The calendar runs from January through December but when you live in a university town and follow all of the teams that play for that school, it begins in late August and you are never quite sure when it will end.

Florida Gator Football

Recruiting policies on hot seat
The SEC football coaches have listened to Jeremy Foley and are ready to accept impending recruiting reforms, but that doesn't necessarily mean change will come without at least some resistance.
