Paint helps Gators whitewash pain of Tennessee loss
A coat of paint helped the Florida Gators whitewash the pain of a devastating loss.

Gators defenders leave gaps
Zook says unit's early eagerness is putting them out of position to make plays.

The secret of Jackson's success
That 81-yard touchdown catch-and-run Florida receiver Chad Jackson had against Tennessee last Saturday? The Gators can thank Ciatrick Fason.

Zook Speaks In Favor Of Instant Replay
Not that it would have helped this past Saturday, but Florida coach Ron Zook would like to see instant replay in the Southeastern Conference.

Instant replay isn't the remedy for refs' errors
Since officiating played a major role in the results of the Southeastern Conference's two biggest games last weekend, the suggestion has been made that the conference adopt the Big Ten's instant-replay policy.

Chad's chance
When potential turns into production, careers are launched. For some athletes, the process happens quickly. For others, it takes time. For Chad Jackson, it's been only about a year, but seems so much longer.

Tapes prove case for Leak
Gators coach Ron Zook would like to have instant replay used, but he doesn't expect it to happen.

SECrecy clouds decisions on referees
Former Hurricane quarterback Marc Guillon will be making his first career start for the Tide on Saturday.

Freshman lineman makes presence felt
aron Miller doesn't talk much, so sometimes Kentucky coaches wonder what he's thinking.

UF wide receiver making amends
Was he seeking redemption, or was it solace?

Jackson honoring late cousin Victor
Florida WR Chad Jackson never scores an ordinary touchdown. Every time he gets the opportunity to cross the goal line, Jackson points to heaven, giving credit to God and Victor Hill.

UF's Jackson finds stride as sophomore
Wide receiver Chad Jackson was just the typical freshman — no better, no worse.

'Silent Storm' on the blind side
Aaron Miller's collegiate career is just one game old, yet the true freshman out of East Carter High School already is starting to compile nicknames.

Secondary shakeup not necessarily permanent
During the final defensive series for Florida in the Gators' loss to Tennessee, coaches switched things around in the secondary and left one starter standing on the sidelines.

UK's Miller: Small town to starter
LEXINGTON -- Aaron Miller doesn't talk much, so sometimes Kentucky coaches wonder what he's thinking.

Small keeps coming up big for UF
The top pass catcher in the Southeastern Conference doesn't run the fastest 40-yard dash among Florida's receivers. Nor does he claim to look real pretty racing down the field to haul in a Chris Leak bomb.

Florida Gator Ingle Martin

Former Florida QB discovers he can still dream at I-AA level
Furman quarterback Ingle Martin once dreamed of becoming the best quarterback in the country, so when it came time to pick a college, he chose the one whose coach was generally regarded as the nation's best quarterbacks coach.
