GO GATORS????? What are proud of Sue??? The Gators have the EASIEST schedule in the country. As Dave Curtis mentioned, these guys would get blown away by a Top 25 team. So far, their signature win is a 72-56 win at Auburn.... but... they'll make the NCAA-T like they did last year, and we won't, even though we beat them.

If Donovan and Co. go out and recruit another talented big man to compliment Speights this team is looking at another Final Four run next year. I didn't expect much from the youngins, but I have to say, their poise lately has impressed me. Furthermore, Billy D has a team that he can teach again, and when a coach like Donovan is challenged as he has been this year, it makes him better. The future looks bright for my baby gators as they continue to turn heads.

So WHAT NOLE!! Like the schedule MATTERS?? A few wins here and there does not get you to the NCAA Tourny, you have to win consistantly. Yeah, you beat us this year. This is a VERY young team, but they are coming around & playing as a team. You play that matchup at the end of February, and I bet the Gators take that one back.

A horse fly may bite a stallion and cause him pain, but when it's over, the horse fly is still a horse fly, and the stallion is still a stallion.

FSU has beaten UF 2 years running, but FSU is still FSU, and Florida is still... well, I think you get it now.
