NO TIME FOR UF TO REST - VOLS AWAIT TONIGHT

MAKING NEWS

The Gators, still smarting from getting routed at Arkansas on Saturday, have to regroup quickly. Nick Calathes, above, and Florida will face a raucous atmosphere and a potent offense at No. 7 Tennessee tonight (9, ESPN, 1250-AM) in a key SEC East matchup. "It will be a great challenge to see the way we can come back from (Arkansas)," said UF coach Billy Donovan, who has emphasized defense during practices after the Arkansas loss. USF, having lost eight straight, also faces a road test, vs. No. 6 Georgetown (7:30, Catch 47, 1010-AM). The USF women, trying to shake a shooting slump, play host to No. 25 DePaul at the Sundome (7, 1010-AM). 3C

Spain could lose F1 races after taunts

Spain could lose both its Formula One races after racist taunting of driver Lewis Hamilton by spectators. The sport's ruling body said Monday the abuse aimed at F1's first black driver during weekend testing at the Barcelona circuit might result in sanctions. Punishment could lead to the removal of two races , the Spanish Grand Prix on April 27 in Barcelona and the European GP on Aug. 24 at Valencia. "Formula One is a global, multicultural sport," FIA said. "It does not have scenes like this in its history and doesn't want to see scenes like this."

OUT OF BOUNDS

Remember, do not watch the game

Mixed martial arts star Chuck Liddell attended Sunday's Super Bowl as an A-List celebrity. The last time he went, he was working as a security guard. Liddell told SportsIllustrated.com that he was positioned at midfield for Super Bowl XXXII in San Diego and his orders were to keep his back to the field at all times. "I was like, 'Right. Like the guy on the 50, who paid huge bucks, is going to cause trouble and run on the field. Especially after seeing me standing there,' " Liddell said. "I watched the whole game."
