The Gators will be young but competituve this year. But look out next year! Will never be as bad as FSU! They can't win championships every year!

I'm not worried about this year or next year. UF has done what no other Florida team has done...win back-to-back national men's bball titles. Oh wait, I don't think FSU or Miami have EVER won even ONE title, much less two in a row.

Whatever happened to FSU's reasoning for joining the ACC in the early 90's was an effort to improve their hoops program and not the path of least resistence for football championships.

It's funny when a team like FSU cries about not gettting an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament and ends up an early departure from the NIT tournament.

We'll be alright this year... don't get me wrong, it's gonna be tough! I'm just disappointed in our recruitment for the year. We really don't have any big guys to grab the boards. And I don't want to sound racist here, but we have NO speed when we've got five white guys on the court. The season's long and I've only seen two exhibition games, but from what I've seen so far, I'm a tad bit nervous!

Why do you care? Regardless, UF is still defending National Champs in basketball. Does your team even HAVE a next year? Or are they just expected to remain mediocre?

My team has a year every year - we worry about "next" year when it gets here. For some reason we have a tendancy to live in the present and not attempt to predict the future. And surely don't worry about the past!Unlike a majority of fans of UF!

So now UF fans worry about the past? Which is it? Next year or the past? Regarding the present, UF is the defending National Champs. Is that ok to say?

It must be sad to be in your shoes and have your life. You sit here and post on a Gator article when you should be worried about your team. Get a life and go play on your teams site or article.

I'm a realist, don't expect much from the team this year. We lost the top 6 players off of a team that won b to b championships. Am I supposed to come on here and tell you we're going to win it all again? Get real! There is plenty of young talent there, just needs experience which will come this year! Get a life! And who is your team?

Thats hilarious! One thing a fan from another team shouldn't do, is talk trash after a Gator basketball article. They just did something that no other team has done in 15 years, and you want to talk trash????????? Give me a break!

None of you have even seen the team play, have you? Well I went to both exhibition games. Sure, they got pushed around on the boards a bit, but Donovan had 5 Freshman on the floor a majority of the time. They will get better with time.
Regardless, at least we won our "practice" games, something Ohio State could do against D2 Findlay last night!
