JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Florida's Jaye Howard timed the snap perfectly, blew through two defenders and violently slammed Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller to the ground. "I had a lot of frustrations, man," Howard said. "Urban brought it out in me today. " Urban Meyer's future team got a good look at his former team, and the Buckeyes learned just how fast the Gators can be. Florida's defense and special teams came up big in the Gator Bowl, recording six sacks and scoring twice as the Gators beat Ohio State yesterday, 24-17.

Florida, hampered all season by injuries to its defense, lost two key players yesterday when defensive end Tim Beauchamp and cornerback Dock Pollard were suspended for the Orange Bowl. Coach Steve Spurrier said the players were disciplined for breaking school rules, but didn't elaborate. "Tim Beauchamp and Dock Pollard broke a university rule that prohibits them from playing in the game," Spurrier said. "That's really all I'm allowed to say. " Phone messages left for athletic director Jeremy Foley were not immediately returned.

Collingswood won its fifth football game in a row last night, using its powerful defense to stop Gateway, 29-6. The Panthers, still hoping for a Group 2 playoff berth, raised their record to 6-1 overall and 6-1 in the Colonial Conference. Collingswood had been scored on in only one previous game, a 30-13 loss to Paulsboro on Oct. 1. Gateway fell to 4-3. The Gators' three losses have been to Collingswood, Paulsboro and Sterling - a trio with a combined record of 18-1. Wes Durham's 29-yard field goal got the scoring started, and quarterback Glen Ambrosius was 6 of 8 for 82 yards in the first half, when the Panthers put the game away.

If you had told Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun he could have junior forward Donyell Marshall on the foul line for two shots with 3.4 seconds left in regulation of a tie game, do you think he'd take his chances? Is Bob Knight arrogant? Unfortunately for Calhoun, that's precisely the situation his Huskies found themselves in last night at the Miami Arena. We say "unfortunately" because Marshall - a 75 percent free throw shooter who will finish second to Purdue's Glenn Robinson in the Player of the Year voting - missed both tries.

The Florida Gators love to go on the road. They relish the chance to snuff out any hopes of an upset, to silence all those heckling fans. Corey Brewer scored 18 points, Al Horford added 17 and the top-ranked Gators extended their winning streak to 15 games last night with a 71-61 victory at Georgia, which led early, but never really had a chance. Florida (22-2, 9-0 Southeastern Conference) took control in the first half and pulled away in the second. It wasn't the Gators' best performance, but it was easily good enough to extend their best start ever in the SEC. Four of those wins have come on the road.

DORON LAMB struggled to explain why top-ranked Kentucky could roll so easily over No. 8 Florida. It's much easier for the Wildcats to talk about their goal. "I told somebody we were going to blow them out today. I just felt it coming," said Lamb, who finished with 18 points in a 78-58 home victory last night. "I knew it was coming for some reason. I don't know why. " Freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 13 points and 13 rebounds and Kentucky easily passed its toughest Southeastern Conference test to date.

Everybody says it's the system at Florida, not the quarterback. We'll get a chance to find out Saturday. Sophomore Doug Johnson was suspended for the crucial matchup against No. 6 Auburn because of a curfew violation and true freshman Jesse Palmer will start for the No. 7 Gators. Florida hasn't lost two straight games since 1992. The defending national champion Gators (5-1) lost their No. 1 ranking last week after losing at Louisiana State, 28-21. Auburn (6-0) beat Florida in 1993 and '94. A year ago, the Gators beat the Tigers at home, 51-10.

There was an 83 percent chance that Florida's Mike Miller wouldn't get the opportunity to make a game-winning basket. All that was needed for Butler to upset fifth-seeded Florida was for LaVall Jordan to make two free throws with 8.1 seconds left in overtime yesterday. That would have given Butler a three-point lead and forced Florida to make a three-pointer just to send the game to a second extra period. Instead, Jordan - an 83 percent foul shooter - missed both free throws and Florida, trailing by only one point, was free to send Miller down the lane.

Incoming Florida freshman Eraste Autin died of complications related to heat stroke yesterday, six days after collapsing and falling into a coma following a workout with teammates. Autin fell unconscious just outside Florida Field last Thursday while jogging to the locker room after participating in a voluntary summer conditioning session. Friends of the family said he had a major heart attack, that his fever rose to 108 degrees, and that he slipped into a coma soon after he was taken to Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Fla. A 6-2, 250-pound fullback from Lafayette, La., Autin was widely considered one of the country's top high school players at his position last season.

Vernon Maxwell is no longer the all-time leading basketball scorer at the University of Florida. By decision of athletic director Bill Arnsparger, he is now No. 21. Arnsparger decided to delete Maxwell's junior and senior seasons from the Gators record book. The NCAA, which imposed two years of sanctions against the Gators program in September, had ruled Maxwell ineligible for the 1987 and 1988 NCAA tournaments because he had an agent. That move cost Maxwell 118 points and six assists, but still left him as the school's all-time scoring and assist leader.

A COUPLE OF weeks ago, I wrote about the child who fell into the gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo. I said the mother was to blame, because she should have been watching the child at all times. The repercussions from that article were momentous: I lost some friends, including a dear one whom I miss and will likely not see again. I was asked to be on CNN, which was pretty darn amazing, because they sent a limousine and had someone do my makeup (which I expect will happen again only when I die.)

Fifth in a series of profiles of potential Phillies draft picks. HOOVER, Ala. - A.J. Puk absorbed the charged atmosphere at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium last week with each completed inning. He yelled and chewed the top of his Florida jersey when he hung a slider in the fifth inning of an SEC tournament game. He pumped his fist twice with a big strikeout to end the sixth. He pounded his chest after a seventh-inning groundout. Puk, a 6-foot-7 pitcher with a prized left arm, shuffled each time past his Gators teammates.

After Alex McCalister arrived at the NovaCare Complex, he heard references to another Florida defensive end with a similar build who used to play for the Eagles. They told McCalister about Jevon Kearse - or, as McCalister has heard, "The Freak. " He has a long way to go, but McCalister, the Eagles' seventh-round pick, has the frame and pass-rushing potential to elicit those comparisons. McCalister is 6-foot-6 and 243 pounds with 36-inch arms and an 86-inch wingspan. His 121/2 sacks over the last two seasons for the Gators, even though he played fewer than 40 percent of the snaps, showed one skill that the Eagles crave.

Ryan Arcidiacono played in his 140th Villanova game on Sunday when the Wildcats advanced to the Sweet 16. That is the new school record - breaking the mark of 139 held by Dante Cunningham and Scottie Reynolds - and will be until Thursday when the NCAA tournament continues with Arcidiacono playing at least one more. It was fitting that Villanova's advancement to the deeper rounds of the tournament for the first time since 2009 coincided with Arcidiacono setting the only individual team record he will hold.

"I couldn't even reach the rim from the three-point line a couple of years ago," Courtney Redcross said with a smile as she stood in the hallway just outside Shipley's Yarnall Gym. It's hard to believe now, but Redcross, a senior for the Gators, used to be solely a post player, the kind who would stand down low and not even think to pull up from 14 feet, let alone beyond the arc. But that was when she was a freshman, in her first year of varsity basketball....

UNCASVILLE, Conn. - Phil Martelli had modest goals before St. Joseph's Mohegan Sun Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament game against Florida on Saturday. "Our goal was 75 percent from the foul line and our goal was 75 points," the Hawks coach said. "If we get to those two numbers today I think we're in the winner's circle. " The Hawks fell short of each goal. Not only did the Gators outlast the Hawks, 74-63, but St. Joseph's shot a modest 70 percent (14 for 20) from the free-throw line in a semifinal of the tourney's Naismith bracket.

Joe Bradley put his right arm around Austin Wylie as they walked toward the bench. "M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!" the senior chanted about his Shipley soccer teammate. The Gators had just defeated Friends' Central, 2-0, in the Friends Schools League final Tuesday, and the midfielder wanted to show some appreciation for Wylie, the player who put his team over the top. "He missed a PK but he still had two goals," Bradley said to anybody that happened to be listening. Bradley smiled, as did Wylie, who seemed embarrassed by the fuss.

Not every Josh Davis run ends with a first down or touchdown for the Gateway football team. Just about all of them end with a bang, though. "Josh runs really hard," Gateway coach Josh Mason said. "He always finishes his runs physically. " Davis' bruising style has been the key to Gateway's resurgence. Just three years removed from a stretch where the Gators went 3-27 over four seasons - twice compiling 0-10 marks - the Colonial Conference program is poised to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2004.

Nia Holland walked from the bench to talk to teammates Yndia Bobo and Tenisha Pressley at the edge of the basketball court during a timeout. "They are going to keep pressing," the senior guard warned. "They are going to trap you every time. " Holland, who was set to be the starting point guard for Shipley, is out until around Christmastime after having meniscus surgery, but she wasn't going to let her knowledge go to waste on the sideline. So when the home game Saturday against Episcopal Academy got tight with less than a minute to play in what would be a 46-40 nonleague victory for the Gators, the Lafayette recruit took it upon herself to talk to the sophomore duo. When the timeout was over, the Churchwomen pressed and trapped, just as Holland had said, but this time, the Gators got the ball down the court and drew a foul.

When the Higgins boys were younger, they often played soccer in the backyard. The games varied, but a staple competition was two-on-one keepaway. Because Ronan was the youngest of the three, he always seemed to get trapped in the middle. Now a freshman at Shipley, Ronan Higgins no longer is stuck in between his older brothers, Tommy and Conor, and having to chase them. Instead, the forward is a catalyst for the Gators (8-1-3) off the bench, and for the first time in his career, he is playing with Conor, a senior, in organized competition.
