Second-string quarterback Tyler Murphy was popular at UF Media Day on Thursday.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The Gators hold their third practice of the season later today.

The season opener against Toledo is now less than four weeks away, so the long summer without football is quickly coming to a close -- I think that's something we can all agree is a good thing.

To get you caught up on some stories early in camp, here is a look at some links from around the Internet:

--Will Muschamp was at media day, he mentioned that woodpeckers don't get concussions due to an extra bone in their neck, there was a follow-up question and a sharp answer, and the story ends up all over the Internet, even for readers of the San Francisco Chronicle. The information age moves fast and far.
