After months of speculation and projections, the NFL Draft finally gets underway Thursday night. The Alligator Sports staff writers, through a meeting of minds, divided the teams and took turns to create a mock draft of our own. Here’s what we expect each NFL team to do on opening night.
Gainesville residents voted Tuesday to re-elect one city commissioner who saw them through a year of the COVID-19 pandemic, but voted out the other incumbent in favor of a local activist.

Assuming that the college football season begins as scheduled (which feels like a big assumption right now), we’re down to three months until the beginning of SEC play on Sept. 12.

Week 1 of the college football season has come and gone, and we’ve learned quite a lot.

Today, we focus on individual effort.
A trio of freshmen – corners Marco Wilson, CJ Henderson and running back Malik Davis – stood out in UF football team’s 4-7 campaign last season.
