Fason puts focus on season, not NFL
Gators RB, a former Fletcher star, says he's in better shape than in 2003.

Crowder may have to go to court to resolve case
Florida linebacker Channing Crowder may be headed for court, and there is a possibility his case might not be resolved until after the season begins.

Fason, Wynn Say They'll Share Carries
Florida QB Chris Leak has only one football to hand off on a given play, so it would logically follow that a rivalry would develop between RBs Ciatrick Fason and DeShawn Wynn.

McCullough set to shoulder the load on defense
he worst part was the watching. Not the rehabilitation. Not the pain. Not the uncertainty. The watching.

Degory's glory
By his own admission, Mike Degory is still no media darling. He strongly guards his opinions, is reluctant to talk about himself and generally keeps a low and silent profile on the Florida football team. But this big, burly, bearded, bear of a man is a veritable quote machine compared to what he used to be.

Caldwell stepping up as possible go-to guy
UF head coach Ron Zook says all indications are this is the fastest Gator team he's had in his three years

Big add to UF's O-line
Is more Mo better? Florida coach Ron Zook doesn't think so.

Confident Hill follows Ratliff
Nothing against Keiwan Ratliff, but Florida senior Reynaldo Hill is hoping Gators fans forget about his former teammate this season.

Gators' Crowder charged in altercation
The Gainesville State Attorney's Office filed formal charges Tuesday against Florida linebacker Channing Crowder for his involvement in a disturbance at a downtown nightclub three months ago.

Guard Mitchell is ready to play huge role for UF
As Florida faces the challenge of plugging holes left by former OG Shannon Snell and OT Max Starks, one of this year's potential replacements says he's ready to fill their shoes. Finding a way to make those cleats fit, however, might be the more difficult task.

Charges filed against Florida's Crowder
Linebacker may go on trial for second-degree misdemeanor
