Twas the night before Christmas and all through the sports world,
Commissioner Santa was fretting the scandals that swirled.
He was, after all, in charge of all sports,
But he'd lost all control, according to published reports.
His mood was...

ST. PETERSBURG — Why the long faces, Knights fans?
All is not lost.
I am here to cheer you up after Friday night's 34-27 loss to North Carolina State in something known as the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl.
There is at least some solace...

There was a lot of hustle in Gainesville, not much bustle in Tallahassee and the usually respectful haul in Orlando at UCF. Miami, meanwhile, saw some players slip away yet again on National Signing Day 2015.
The Florida Gators, under new coach Jim...

Mike Easton didn't have much to talk about going into the final home game of his college football career. That was a shame, since he deserved something for all the work he'd put in.

After the longest wait, the Longest Day has finally arrived.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, congratulations. You qualify for protection under the Endangered Species Act for being oblivious to college football.
That's hard to do around here....

Running off at the typewriter …
I have this sneaking suspicion that Will Muschamp might be coaching his final game today for the Gators if Florida loses as expected to the Georgia Bulldogs. In all actuality, his fate was all but sealed during...

B.J. Taylor wore out basketballs and backboards playing in his driveway in Orlando. He was a persistent presence outside his house on Gatlin Woods Drive, through sunshine and thunderstorms.

Where's everyone running off to?
It's time to give credit where credit is due.
After being marginalized, pushed aside, passed over and relegated to the second or third rounds of the NFL Draft, it's suddenly cool to be a running back. From Wisconsin'...
