Hey folks, getting ready to watch some of the Louisville-Michigan national title game.

Those are the last two schools to defeat the Gators in the NCAA Tournament.

On a more positive note, did you see that Gators junior center Patric Young announced today that he was coming back for his senior season?

Young's final team at UF could be his best yet with transfers Damontre Harris and Dorian Finney-Smith eligible to play after sitting out a year due to NCAA rules and newcomers Kasey Hill and Chris Walker joining Billy D's team.

Maybe next year the Gators will be playing on the final Monday night of the college basketball season.

For now, let's take a look at some fresh links covering sports news of interest to Gator fans:
