New recruiting rules affecting Gators
The season of change is among us. While New Year's resolutions are quickly being broken, the Florida Gators football team is undergoing some changes as well. While the current players are taking a couple of weeks off, the new coaches are on the road trying to lure some future Gators.

Florida Gator Gymnastics

A difficult adjustment
The second-largest crowd in Florida gymnastics history roared as the 2005 Gators were introduced Friday night. It was a scene sophomore Breanne King won't soon forget.

Florida Gator Basketball

Help wanted: Again, it's up to Humphrey
Florida sophomore guard Lee Humphrey received a pleasant reminder of home over Christmas break.

SEC action arrives
few days after his team's loss to Florida State, Florida coach Billy Donovan received a call of support from a high-profile friend.

Coach pleas to Lee to get more rebounds
David Lee says he got Florida coach Billy Donovan's message.

Gators Must Come Of Age Quickly
These words sound as if they passed the lips of a senior captain.

Outlook uncertain as UF gets ready for SEC play
Florida Coach Billy Donovan sent out the warning long ago. He didn't make any dramatic predictions, didn't set any outlandish goals.

UF enters tough SEC season
He arrived a season removed from an NCAA title game appearance, and David Lee could miss the NCAA Tournament in his senior season at the University of Florida.

Big Gator shoes to fill
Leading scorer Matt Walsh is out for at least a month with ligament damage in his left ankle. Starting center Adrian Moss could be hobbled the rest of the season with a bad back.

Florida Gator Notes

UF's Foley not looking to leave
Contrary to widespread rumors, Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley said he does not have interest in Ohio State's athletic director vacancy. Speculation has pointed to Foley as a potential front-runner to replace Andy Geiger, who resigned Wednesday after 10 years.
