    Bryan Colangelo took over as the teams President and General Manager. In that
    time the Raptors have just one winning season to speak of. Theyve won three
    playoff games in just two postseason appearances. You can argue that after seven
    years of faithful service to the organization Colangelo is entitled to nothing.
    But youd be wrong. He is entitled to respect. The two-time Executive of the Year
    was hailed as a franchise saviour when he was lured away from the Phoenix Suns
    and brought to town in February of 2006. He was supposed to bring NBA legitimacy
    to a city that desperately craved it, and a fan base that had been teased - only
    briefly - with the taste of success. Fast forward to 2013. That taste has turned
    bitter. The results, division title aside, have fallen well below expectations
    and the promise of building a winner in Toronto has fallen on skeptical ears.
    Here we sit, the franchise at another crossroads as Colangelo -- like everybody
    else -- awaits the next step, the chosen path. In many ways this is the calm
    before what appears to be an inevitable storm. Throughout his tenure Colangelo,
    a beacon of class and professionalism, has represented the front office in a way
    any ideal executive should. He has and continues to treat the city, its fans and
    media alike with respect. In terms of his work, he hasnt been shy, swinging for
    the fences and engineering the type of bold moves hes become synonymous with.
    Agree or disagree with his personnel decisions, his unwavering dedication to the
    job has been commendable. In the end its a results driven business and the
    results have not been good. The Raptors GM knows that as well as anyone. He may
    be given one final opportunity to deliver those results in the option year of
    his contract. He may not. In either scenario there should have been a better,
    quicker way of coming to a resolution. Nearly four weeks ago Colangelo addressed
    the media in his annual season ending post-mortem. For over 38 minutes he
    answered questions regarding the immediate and long-term future of the team, its
    players and coach without knowing where his own fate in the organization lied.
    Now he and his staff head to Chicago for a draft combine that begins on
    Thursday. There -- assuming a resolution has not been made by this point -- hell
    represent a team (likely) without a pick, a team he may not even be a part of
    when the draft takes place in late June. The question is, who steps in to do
    right by the GM? Thats where things get tricky. Tim Leiweke, the incoming CEO of
    Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, owes Colangelo nothing. Unofficially, hes
    been on the job for just over two weeks. Officially he wont take over until June
    30. Understandably, his allegiance is to this franchise and its future, as he
    sees it, not to GM he inherited. It is widely believed that the MLSE board has
    ceded the decision making to its new chief executive. Its Leiwekes call to make,
    whenever he is ready to make it. Many believe a resolution is just around the
    corner. Leiweke has been weighing his options, doing his due diligence and could
    presumably be seeking out potential alternatives should he decide to steer the
    franchise in a new direction. Although it remains plausible that Colangelos
    one-year option is picked up, that scenario appears to be a fallback at this
    point. If that was "Plan A", wouldnt it be done by now? Some have speculated
    that Colangelo could take his fate in his own hands and resign. It shouldnt come
    to that. Colangelos seven-year tenure with the Raptors has been a roller
    coaster. Despite all the bumps, drops and turns he remains one of the most well
    regarded executives in the association. If his time in Toronto is nearing its
    end no one should be surprised, these marriages tend to expire in the absence of
    sustained success, but how long can you keep the GM in limbo? He deserves
    better. Stitched Football

    . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. GAINESVILLE, Fla. --
    Florida coach Jim McElwain calls it a character test, a chance to see how his
    players react to being five-touchdown favorites against a team that has lost 13
    of its last 15 games.Others refer to it as a trap game.Either way, its reality
    for the 23rd-ranked Gators (2-0).Coming off a lopsided victory against Kentucky
    and playing at rival and No. 15 Tennessee next week, Florida will try to avoid
    joining a long list of college teams to endure a letdown this season when it
    hosts North Texas (1-1) on Saturday.I dont know how you can ever do anything and
    not go out and do your best, McElwain said. That doesnt mean youre ever going to
    be perfect. No ones ever perfect. But the energy and the way you prepare to go
    out against anybody, it doesnt matter. It shouldnt matter if its football or if
    its tiddlywinks or if its going to the ice cream truck really fast.McElwain took
    it a step further while making his point, saying theres historical precedence at
    Florida of teams seemingly playing to the level of competition and adding were
    not good enough to just show up against anybody.Its certainly been the case in
    recent years, evidenced by the Gators needing to eke out wins against
    Louisiana-Lafayette (2012) and Florida Atlantic (2015) as well as losing to
    then-lower-division Georgia Southern (2013).This has been something thats been a
    little bit of an Achilles heel for Florida football, McElwain said. So I
    stressed to our guys this is an opportunity to create your own identity and be
    different. Well see on Saturday.The Mean Green also are trying to create an
    identity under first-year coach Seth Littrell, an assistant at North Carolina
    the two previous years.What an opportunity, Littrell said. You look across the
    country week-in and week-out, go out and compete. ... We dont fear anybody. Were
    never going to fear anybody. Were going to go out and compete and play the game
    the way it should be played, and at the end of the day, well see where we stack
    up.The Gators should have an idea, too, at leeast against what should be an
    overmatched opponent.ddddddddddddWe just got to make sure we dont play to their
    standard and play to ours, and just push each other instead of like worrying
    about the name of our opponent, Florida linebacker Daniel McMillian said.---Some
    other things to know about North Texas and Florida as they play for the first
    time since 1947:LOSING STREAK: North Texas is 1-46 all-time against ranked
    teams, including 37 consecutive losses since upsetting San Diego State 14-9 in
    1974.INJURED GATORS: Florida receiver Antonio Callaway is highly questionable to
    doubtful to play because of a quadriceps injury. Callaway leads the Gators with
    13 catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns, including a career-long 78-yarder
    against Kentucky last week. Florida will be without starting right guard Tyler
    Jordan (eye) and backup linebacker Jeremiah Moon (thumb).SEVEN-FIGURE PAYDAY:
    Florida is paying North Texas $1 million to make the trip, a significant payday
    that will help the Mean Green fund their program.BIG D: The Gators are tied for
    third in the nation with nine sacks. Equally impressive, they havent allowed 200
    yards in either game. The defense will try to extend the streak against the Mean
    Green, which was outscored 141-44 in three games against ranked teams (Iowa,
    Western Kentucky and Tennessee) in 2015.GOOD COMPANY: Luke Del Rio is well on
    his way to becoming Floridas most proficient passer since Tim Tebow. Last week
    against Kentucky, Del Rio became the first Florida quarterback to have 300 yards
    passing and four touchdowns in SEC play since Rex Grossman accomplished the feat
    in 2001 against LSU. Its nice to throw for a bunch of yards and a bunch of
    touchdowns, said Del Rio, who wasnt sacked. But to be honest, I did the easy
    part. I was back there with all day to throw. ... There was nobody around
    me.---AP college football website:
