And you expect freshmen to compete at the same level as teams with juniors and seniors? I hope that Donovan pulls them together and you wind up eating your words by the end of the season. FSU may have beat the Gators on the BB court, but the Gators turned it around on the FB field and routed the Noles. I'd say it was a good swap. BTW, the Gator football team was mostly freshmen too, and look at their improvement by the end of the season.

That's Right. The Gator's freshman and sophmores beat FSU's juniors and seniors on the gridiron.

Excuses , excuses , excuses....Way to turn a basketball article into a football smack article. Face it, the great Billie the Traitor and his all-american superstar freshmen got their behind whipped. So what if FSU has upper classmen? If the Gates are so darn good they should be able to win. And people wonder why Gator fans are the least liked in college athletics.

Hey Eagle,
The Gator fans are only least liked by people like you. Fans of the teams that the Gators play and hate that the Gator Nation is bigger and has been around longer than all of the other schools in the state. Don't hate us beause of the GREAT last 18 months of championships...lol.

These Baby Gators are so young & skinny. Give them a year or two to bulk up & bring on some new TALL boys& Billy D will be in the mix. Until then just enjoy their development.

Joakim Noah did not have a stellar freshman year either - choaked in the 2 minutes of the game he played in the 05 March Madness against Villinova. These young Gators are learning to run Billy's system this year. Watch out for them next year. GO GATORS!!
