Rankings should be ceremonial
Pop the champagne corks. Toss confetti into the air. Grab your girlfriend and give her a big smooch. Wait, let me call photo. We want to preserve this moment for posterity.

Gators strike down Ole Miss'
Bleary-eyed stadium workers were making their way home to get some much needed sleep. But a wired, wide-eyed Pat McMahon was in no hurry to go anywhere.

No. 10 Florida living up to its high expectations
This is not Pat McMahon's most talented team at Florida. His first Gators team, in 2002, may have been. And it's arguable that last year's team had more players than this year's group.

SEC could set record
The big question among media, coaches and players this week at the SEC Tournament is how many conference teams will make the 64-team NCAA Tournament field.

Ole Miss can't catch breaks in 10-7 loss to Florida
Ole Miss and Florida slugged it out late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.

Gators knock off Rebels
It seemed as if the Ole Miss baseball team was on the cusp of winning its first two Southeastern Conference Tournament games for the first time in school history. Then, in an instant, it all changed.

UF coach fights for life, team
Tom Jones looks out his office window and points to the backstretch at the University of Florida track.
