The Florida Gators went down at the hands of the Michigan Wolverines in the Elite Eight. Erin Andrews had to make good on a wager with Rich Eisen.

A lot of college teams have banned their players from Twitter and with good reason. Too many kids tend to tweet without thinking (or while drinking) and fail to realize that there are thousands of people watching their every tweet. Any and every misstep is caught, retweeted, and used as fodder for late night jokes and bloggers everywhere.
So it is easy to see why coaches...
The Gators had a solid, but unspectacular season. Six of the fifteen presason top 25s I tracked in the Vitale Cup included the Gators in their preseason top 10, and it's likely that fewer prognosticators will be that bullish this year. UF graduates Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and Erik Murphy, and there's a solid chance that junior Patric Young departs early for the draft...
Michigan is scoring at will agains what is arguably a top-3 defense in the Florida Gators.
The Michigan Wolverines blew past the Florida Gators to advance to the 2013 Final Four, however, the NY Times thinks it was the 'Spartans'.
Chad Ford is of the opinion that Mitch McGary could be a first round pick:
McGary’s stock is clearly on the rise. What’s harder to gauge is where exactly to put him in our Top 100. While GMs warn that you can’t put too much stock on the NCAA tournament, McGary’s situation is unique. He didn’t play big minutes, or a starting role on Michigan until the Big Ten Tournament...
Spike Albrecht shined while Trey Burke sat.
After all that, Michigan and Louisville were still pretty much even. Then the Wolverines couldn't stop Louisville in the second half.
With Burke on the bench in early foul trouble, the seldom-used Albrecht scored 17 points in the first half, and the Wolverines led by 12 in Monday night's national title game. But that lead was...
ARLINGTON, Texas-- Florida Head Coach Billy Donovan reflects on the 79-59 Elite Eight loss to Michigan, and what he will remember most about perhaps one of his most talented squads.
Mitch McGary faced some unexpected adversity in Michigan’s last game versus Kansas, but was able to overcome it by delivering yet another monster effort. His emergence is one to the tournament’s top stories, but it has many observers wondering what brought it about. McGary sat down with the media to shed light on his physical and mental growth, the tone he sets for his team...
He’s waited his time, and junior quarterback Tyler Murphy is willing to wait some more. More important to him than playing right now is winning football games and the staff at Florida has designated junior Jeff Driskel as the starter again. Now, he finds himself in a battle for back up duty and the guy that has to be ready in case Driskel goes down. Murphy seems prepared for whatever happens.
Jabari Gorman and Cody Riggs were on top of the depth chart at safety to start spring practice, but the goal was to build depth and add bodies capable of playing safety during the fall. An injury to Riggs gave extra reps to younger players, and while the Gators wait for three freshmen safeties to get to campus in the summer, this spring gave an opportunity for the returning players to win the job.
The Michigan Wolverines are off to the Final Four, and the superstar three-point shooting and passing of Nik Stauskas is a huge reason why.
Michigan is 20 minutes away from a trip to Atlanta for their first Final Four appearance in 20 years (1993).
On this Easter Sunday, Nik Stauskas has 19 first half points and the Wolverines are up on the Gators by 17, 47-30.
