Great start for the Gators. As the article states, you really don't know what to expect from a team of mostly-freshmen. In this case, they seem to be progressing nicely! Keep it up, and Go Gators!

Basketball and football are African-American dominated sports. Let us not forget these fine young African-Americans once their college careers are finished.

I agree, education is important. UF knows this and posted a 91% graduation rate for it's athletes--one of four NCAA All Sports Top Ten's to break the 90% mark.

Billy D is proving that he is a fantastic coach. You can see his players improving every game. The unselfish style of ball he coaches will bring another national championship to UF within the next 3 years
