Florida Gator Football

Gators hurt by bad calls against Vols
SEC head of officials admits crew made two mistakes in final minutes of Florida's 30-28 loss.

University of Florida football coach Ron Zook didn't mind the penalty as much as what happened - or didn't happen - after the flag.

Florida falls to No. 16 in AP
LSU fell out of the top 10 Sunday while Auburn moved in, the result of a one-point game decided by a second-chance extra point.

Refs fumbled reset
It will come as little consolation for a football program that has seen two losses in its last four games marred by controversial calls.

Officiating has Zook fuming
UF coach Ron Zook was so furious about a personal-foul penalty and a decision to stop the clock in the Gators' loss that he went to his AD for help.

Officials made mistake
Referees made an incorrect decision during the final minute of Florida's loss to Tennessee on Saturday, which might have made a significant impact on the outcome of the Gators' 30-28 loss.

Zook says 'a lot of little things' doomed Gators
The University of Florida's conference-opening loss at Tennessee left coach Ron Zook with a long list of "What ifs?" — and one unavoidable conclusion.

Missed opportunities blamed for loss in Knoxville
The foot of James Wilhoit ended UF's night in Neyland after it almost cost Tennessee the game.

Last-minute letdown
Apparently, Neyland Stadium is a tough place to play even for the Volunteers.

Gators still just teasing us
If you're a Florida Gator fan, Neyland Stadium was a Petri dish Saturday. Scrape a little DNA sample from that fabulous football game and you have the Ron Zook Era.

Florida Gator Soccer

Gators initiate scorers
