Miami game may determine Crowder's path
One player had the game that allowed him to make up his mind. The other's awaits.

Gators see future glory
The Florida Gators like Atlanta so much they're planning on coming back next year.

Miami's Coker is big on Strong
Add Miami's Larry Coker to the growing list of college coaches who believe Florida defensive coordinator and interim coach Charlie Strong will be a head coach one day soon.

Berlin sees the end of the road
Brock Berlin will finish his college football career on Friday night, and when he leaves the Georgia Dome field he will take with him a lesson that took five years to learn.

Florida's last meeting with Miami was more than a year ago, but linebacker Travis Harris isn't going to forget it -- and not because the Gators blew a 23-point lead and lost.

Strong feels unworthy for Gators
His grandmother used to call him "Little Sunshine," because Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong had a smile that could light up a room.

Gators' interim coach a Strong candidate
Miami coach Larry Coker said Tuesday that he feels Florida interim head coach Charlie Strong will eventually land a head coaching job and that the color of his skin should not be a factor.

Brock Berlin doesn't regret
Brock Berlin doesn't regret it happened and can't promise that it won't happen again.

Weighing their options
Florida tailback Ciatrick Fason announced several weeks ago that he's planning on turning pro after Friday's Peach Bowl.

Bad blood between UF and UM
Throughout the Florida-Miami series, the feud between the rivals has resonated with passion, fury, and, on one occasion, fists.

It's a strange way for Berlin to finish
When Miami QB Brock Berlin plays his final collegiate game against Florida on Friday, his performance likely won't define his career. Simply put, the implications aren't enough to cause overbearing memories.

Miami's injured list can't seem to shrink
The University of Miami got some good news and some bad news Tuesday regarding injuries heading into Friday's Peach Bowl against Florida.

Already 10 games into this 2004-05 season, Florida's women's basketball team has yet to play a game with a completely healthy roster. And that makes senior forward Tashia Morehead wonder.

Florida Gator Basketball

Gators' foe today an NCAA rematch
It's shortly before practice Tuesday morning at Florida's basketball complex and David Lee is being modest. Asked to recall his 23-point performance against Sam Houston State in the first round of the 2003 NCAA Tournament, Lee responded: "I had a pretty good game."
