Florida Gator Football

'Tis the season for coaches to tell little fibs
Fear not, Gators fans. Bob Stoops will be the next Florida coach. How do we know? He says he isn't. "I have no interest in the position," Stoops said.

College football: A second look
While the Big East is celebrating Boston College's loss to Syracuse, sparing it the embarrassment of having the bolting Eagles represent the conference in a BCS bowl, it should be more embarrassed over having anybody at all in the Bowl Championship Series.

Florida Gator Volleyball

Rattlers await Gators
There will be no more matches in the O'Connell Center for Florida's volleyball team this year.

FAMU to host big dogs for NCAAs
Tony Trifonov has had his Florida A&M volleyball squad aiming high all season, so learning Sunday that a pair of the game's giants will be sent to Tallahassee for a sub-regional next weekend didn't fluster him.

Florida Gator Fred Taylor

Taylor makes most of chances
Fred Taylor was in no mood to talk philosophy on Sunday. More specifically, the Jaguars' veteran running back wanted no part of questions about an offensive philosophy that produced just 22 carries against one of the NFL's worst rushing defenses.

Florida Gator Basketball

Lack of early hype may prove a perfect recipe for March success
From overrated to overlooked. It took three seasons, but the UF men's basketball team has finally convinced the nation that it is not as good as people have thought since the Gators reached the title game in 2000.
