UF still has a few questions
GAINESVILLE -- For the first time in months, the questions lingering around Florida's football program appear to have subsided.

Gators looking for revenge against UM
The Florida Gators, who were so disappointing they fired their coach, will end their 2004 season against a team that started the year talking about winning a national title.

Meyer balances UF, Fiesta Bowl
GAINESVILLE — The question every Florida Gators fan has been asking to past month finally has an answer: Urban Meyer.

Zook to Illinois not a sure thing
Just as many assumed that Urban Meyer would take the Notre Dame job, some already have concluded that Ron Zook will be Illinois' next coach.

Fate hardly peachy to UM
Miami's regular season ended in disappointment, perhaps a fitting end to an unremarkable season around the Sunshine State.

Urban renewal
After a hectic 24 hours of reports from Utah coach Urban Meyer's family members and others close to him, on Saturday Meyer finally confirmed that he will become UF's 21st head coach.

Irish's Urban renewal project never had chance
There was a time when, if not against the laws of God and man, a coach would've killed for the chance to walk the sidelines at Notre Dame University. Before there were Holtz and Devine bedeviling the opposition in the cathedral of college football, there were men named Parseghian, Leahy and Rockne.

UF successful in wooing Meyer
Ron who? For days following former UF coach Ron Zook's dismissal, the Gators blasted UF athletics director Jeremy Foley for the midseason firing.

Coach gives Foley relief
Mr. Two Bits beats out Touchdown Jesus. Century Tower outshines the Golden Dome. The Urban Meyer era is officially underway, delivering Gator Nation its Christmas present early. And it came at the expense of one of the most storied programs in college football history.
