Monday March 11, 2013 Billy D commercials, Floyd's ankle, experience a Tebow workout, plus more tidbits

Updated: 12:18pm, March 11

You may remember a few weeks ago when colleague Chris Harry wrote this about Gators coach Billy Donovan and his staff working with accomplished filmmaker Joy Pytka on a UPS commercial.

Well, Pytka's work is now complete and those commercial spots Donovan shot that day are ready to roll out.

There are three versions released over the weekend on YouTube and all three are here for your viewing.

For now, here are some fresh links from around the Internet on some items of interest to Gator fans:

--Edgar Thompson of The Orlando Sentinel offers his list of five things to watch during Florida’s spring football practice.

--The UF men’s basketball team has some questions to answer entering the NCAA Tournament writes ESPN.com blogger Myron Medcalf.
