Florida Gator Track & Field

Assistant steps down
Florida assistant women's track coach Larry Judge, one of the most successful throws coaches in the country, has resigned.

Florida Gator Football

A 12th game is not the way to go for NCAA
They are folklore, moments imprinted on the brains of sports fans who can remember the scores and the scorers and where we all were when they happened. Upsets are life and life is full of upsets.

Gators DE Morant Will Transfer
Defensive end Tranell Morant plans to transfer from the University of Florida following the spring semester because of a lack of playing time. Morant, a redshirt freshman from Miami, would become the first player to leave the Gators since the arrival of Coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer UF's savior?
Florida fans view Urban Meyer as their savior, and not just because he is named after a Pope.

Football Recruiting
With the conclusion of the Orange and Blue Debut game, Florida Gator head coach Urban Meyer is already out on the recruiting trail for the 2006 freshman class. Recruiting is a yearlong process, and it will be Meyer's first full recruiting season as the head coach of the Gators.

Florida Gator Basketball

Former Gator Boggan to play at Oklahoma St.
Ex-Florida Gator Mario Boggan landed with another high-profile college basketball program Tuesday, signing a letter-of-intent with Oklahoma State after a strong sophomore season at Chipola Junior College.

Florida Gator Fred Taylor

Playoff hopes still rest on Taylor's knee
Dear Jaguars: Nice draft. Seriously, take your bows. You did something that was desperately needed, which was upgrade the athleticism on the offensive side of the ball. Someone give scouting guru Gene Smith a beer. James Harris -- please take a day off. Jack Del Rio -- get some sleep.
