I was at the game and UF received a gift. The winning points were scored on free throws allowed on a foul call on a PASS where the contact was minimal if at all and didn't result in an advantage... an absolute gift and homer call for an SEC school against a mid major.

UF is a shell of what they've been. This is easily Donavan's worst team.. Calathes is the only player who would have gotten any minutes on last year's team. If they can go .500 in the SEC they'll be fortunate.

Hey Leroy, go back home to Lutes. I heard they're putting a new traffic light in. No one is expecting much of this years Gator team. Have you ever heard of rebuilding? Billy D. will coach them up & they will be much better next year.

I was side-court. The officials couldn't have done any more to give the game to GS. The Gators were getting DICKED by one official in particular..the same guy who has called 2-technicals on Donovan in as many games. The Gators won this fair and square so I am not sure what the hell game leroy was watching.

Yeah! Who cares about academics? It is more important for the Gators to win in Black-dominated sports like football and basketball.

Go Gators!

I watched it on TV; the foul wasn't the difference.
The GS guy lost the ball a bit earlier. That was the difference. They had a chance to go up and the ball went out of bounds off his knee. Ugly as it was, UF took the ball and the lead on to a W.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? You're not SERIOUSLY trying to compare this team to last years team, are you???? GIVE ME A BREAK! There's not a lot of players in the country that would've had a lot minutes on last years team. HELLO, they were the first team in over 15 years to win back to back titles. This is a team of 5 new starters, all of which are Freshman and Sophomores. WAKE UP! Do you expect anyone to step in there for the first time and play like 2 time defending national champions????? There's a reason that hasn't happened in such a long time. Teams like that don't come along very often.
