Meyer says Casey needs to catch on
Maybe Florida tight end Tate Casey is just a slow starter. That's what happened in 2004, when he caught seven of his eight passes and three of his four touchdowns in the Gators' final five games.

Leak going back to where it began
Mike Degory remembers a good bit of unspoken doubt about the skinny freshman quarterback making his first start that sunny September 2003 afternoon in Lexington, Ky.

Crystal clear: Leak is only starter at QB
Two years ago, it was his first start. This Saturday, it will be his 25th.

WR Caldwell Released From Hospital
Florida WR Andre Caldwell was released from Shands Hospital on Tuesday and is resting comfortably in his temporary downstairs dorm room, his mother said.

Gators banged-up, but look to keep rolling against Kentucky
Florida earned a win over rival Tennessee last week, but Urban Meyer's team suffered two key losses in the personnel department. The Gators hope they still have enough to overcome a much less formidable opponent, Kentucky, in their first road contest of the season Saturday.

Gators' offense springs a leak with Leak
They're all giddy on this sweltering Gainesville night. High-fivin', hand-slappin' and Gator-chompin' all the way down University Avenue. Big game, big win, big statement for the Florida Gators.

Wildcats hearing the whispers
Last fall, the rumors started in preseason at Florida. Ron Zook was as good as gone.

Injury gives receivers heavier load
The challenge before Coach Urban Meyer is simple. Replace your fastest up-and-coming receiver and starting kick-return specialist as you head into the heart of a tough Southeastern Conference schedule.
