GAINESVILLE -- I'm being serious now. Gator Clause will give a free doughnut to any FAN (and maybe a couple poor Independent Alligator kids) who joins me for the Gators' first practice of the fall. It's at 6 a.m. on Monday. Gator Clause will be there with a couple dozen free doughnuts (I do take requests but more than likely it's going to be a dozen glazed and a dozen chocolate-covered glazed.) First come first eat. Coffee, too!!!
OK, here's the news. Florida released its practice schedule today. Fans and media can watch practice from Aug. 4-8. After that, two-a-days are closed to the public and the media. (They don't want Miami or Georgia watching their secret quarterback sneaks.)
FAN FRIENDLY PRACTICE SCHEDULE (All listed practices take place at the UF practice field next to the O'Connell Center)
Monday 6-7:25 a.m. (free doughnut practice) and 4:40-6:20 p.m.
