Atkins fiasco followed by Ute transfer
It's out with the old and in with the Ute. Just one week after UF granted disgruntled cornerback Avery Atkins a release, reports suggest that Utah cornerback Ryan Smith will transfer to UF to provide immediate help.

Standout defensive back Ryan Smith is expected to graduate from Utah in two weeks and transfer to the University of Florida.

Ex-Gator guard heads to Ole Miss
David Huertas won't be going far after all. The former UF freshman guard, who sought a transfer and was released from the basketball team on June 8, has decided to stay in the Southeastern Conference and sign with Ole Miss, the school announced Wednesday.

Red alert
David Ross might want to add Bronson Arroyo to his Christmas gift list. Brought to the Cincinnati Reds via trade with the San Diego Padres for a minor leaguer earlier this year, the former Gator started the season as Arroyo's personal catcher, but has blossomed into the best catcher on the roster, and one of the best hitting backstops in the National League.

Florida Gator Emmitt Smith

Smith's college career an afterthought
Former University of Florida and Dallas Cowboys great Emmitt Smith has been selected to the Florida Sports Hall of Fame and will be formally inducted in a ceremony at Tropicana Field Aug. 27.
