Florida and the NCAA are investigating an allegation that former Gators offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey received $100,000 from a representative of a sports agent before last season ended, ESPN.com reported Monday. The allegation stated Pouncey received the money between Florida's loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference title game and its Sugar Bowl win over Cincinnati, according to the report. The alleged representative was not named. "We were made aware of some information in early June that we reported to law enforcement and we then shared with the NCAA and the SEC," Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said in a statement.

All good things must come to an end, and today is the final day of Orioles spring training camp in Sarasota. Luggage and packed boxes are all around the Ed Smith Stadium complex. Tractor trailers started transporting players' automobiles last night. (There's one parked in front of the complex right now.) There's a relaxed atmosphere in the clubhouse. Everyone's ready to head north. But first, the Orioles will finish their exhibition schedule here with a game against State College of Florida, a junior college located here in the Sarasota-Bradenton area.

After a German tourist was murdered in Miami and before a British tourist was murdered near Tallahassee, the Miami Herald editorialized, "Fighting crime against visitors is only a partial answer to the problem . . . . We must also stop the daily savagery against each other." A Herald columnist wrote, "We should be less concerned about how others view us and more concerned about how we view ourselves." Sure, but precisely because the victims were visitors, no recent crime story has so highlighted the direct link between crime and a community's overall well being.

COLLEGE PARK -  Three times last week, South Florida running back Marlon Mack found an opening in Western Carolina's defensive front, made a defender or two miss down the field and then outran the defense for a touchdown of 56-plus yards. As a whole, South Florida does not appear to be very good. The Bulls gave up 31 points to a Western Carolina offense that did not score more than 30 points in any game last season. South Florida quarterback Mike White, meanwhile, threw just three touchdowns with nine interceptions in six games last year and was just 9 of 26 with no touchdowns and an interception against a Catamounts defense that gave up 62 points to Samford last season.

Not too long ago, South Florida was a consistent contender in the Big East. The Bulls had a winning record every year from 2006 through 2010 and were ranked as high as No. 2 in the country in 2007. Now, South Florida isn't very good. The Bulls team that Maryland plays Saturday was just 2-10 last season and struggled with a mediocre Football Championship Subdivision team (Western Carolina) in their season opener Saturday. Western Carolina was 2-10 last year, including 1-7 in the Southern Conference, but the Catamounts led South Florida, 17-16, at halftime and lost, 36-31.

Buck Showalter said he spoke to Johnson on Monday, and the Orioles manager also spoke to McGregor about Johnson, who was released last week by the Oakland Athletics after compiling a 7.14 ERA in 38 games. “I think the mistake you make is thinking that you've got some magic dust that you sprinkle on him.

Gilman's Kai Locksley has committed to play football for national champion Florida State, the program he believes is most likely to help him reach his dream of becoming an NFL quarterback. The son of Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, he said his decision came down to Florida State or Texas. He had the Terps in his top three, but said he recently dropped them from consideration. Locksley, 6 feet 5 and 200 pounds, said the decision came down to his comfort level with coach at Florida State.

The Florida High School Athletic Association's board of directors has voted to require helmets for girls lacrosse players starting with the 2015 season, a move that brought criticism from the sport's governing body. US Lacrosse, which had representatives at the association's meetings, called the mandate "short-sighted and vague. " National girls lacrosse rules do not require players to wear helmets and only state that soft headgear may be worn. The Florida athletic association did not specify what kind of helmet it would require.

The announcement Thursday that Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley had committed to play at Florida State was disappointing news for Maryland fans who desperately wanted to see the four-star prospect in College Park in 2015. In the long term, it wasn't awful news for Terps coach Randy Edsall and, more importantly, for his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, who also happens to be Kai Locksley's father. After talking with the family in June at their home for a story about the relationship between Mike Locksley and the youngest of his three sons , I came away with the feeling that neither Mike nor Kai was totally comfortable with the idea of working together.
