2012 Florida Football Spring Practice Has A Start Date Now, By The Way

Few days late on this one, but all right: the Florida Gators have announced a starting date for their 2012 spring practice session. March 14 it is, with open practices on the 16 and 17 coinciding with a coaches' clinic. This leaves the Alabama Crimson Tide as the only major program in the country to declare an opening date, far as I can tell, and there are probably many easy Alabama jokes to make about that, as always.

The Gators will break in new offensive coordinator Brent Pease, determine whether Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel (or a surprise!) will take over for John Brantley, begin sorting through early enrollees from the No. 3 recruiting class, and try not to finish in third place in the SEC East any more. Florida's spring game is set for April 7.
