1 » Three Florida Gators were named to the 2009 Walter Camp Football Foundation All-America team, the nation’s oldest such honor. Senior middle linebacker Brandon Spikes, junior cornerback Joe Haden and junior center Maurkice Pouncey were all awarded first-team honors while senior quarterback Tim Tebow was given a second-team distinction. For Haden and Pouncey, it was the first time they were given this honor; however, Spikes was also named to the first team in 2008 while Tebow was named to the second team last year and first team in 2007.

2 » No. 14/15 Florida volleyball team (25-5) will face the undefeated No. 1/1 Penn State Nittany Lions in the regional semifinals of the 2009 NCAA Tournament on Friday night. Opening serve at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center is set for 6 p.m. The match will not air live on television.

Extra Bit » On Wednesday, OGGOA reported that the Tennessee Volunteers were the subject of a “wide-ranging investigation” by the NCAA for some of its recruiting practices including the usage of “hostesses” in order to lure high school players. Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated has his own photographic proof that improper contact did indeed take place in one way or another.
