    Football season is over in Gainesvile. But we definitely have have something to cheer for/look forward to. WOW – our guys are ranked 7-8 in the polls and we’re getting a first place vote in the coaches poll. Our non-conference schedule has a few challenges, but all games appear to be winnable.

    Anyone know our projected 2-deep?

    GO GATORS!!!

    Mike White is an impressive recruiter pulling in Locke and Nembhard. What a backcourt tandem for the future!

    Very excited about this hoops season as we await the opening tip!

    The basketball team is trending up, and the coach is panning out to have the “it” factor. Tall and strong players balanced with speed and quickness – which equates to exciting games. They should be very dangerous this year with a ton of potential. (P.S. for those who did not see the KY game last night, I did not see a hyper-dangerous group of freshman, even tho 5 true freshmen started the game. They were sloppy and frail. No muscle. Granted they will improve as the season matures, but they looked very vulnerable against an undermanned team from Utah something-or-other. In fact they were 9 down at the half.) Go gators!

    Another recruiting win for Coach White! And coming from Oak Hill Academy, he should already be strong at the fundamentals:

    As good of an opening game of the hoops season that I’ve seen at UF. Don’t go with the pre-season media pick of UK, this is the best team in the SEC right now.

    I watched UK play Vermont this past weekend and they may have young burger boys, but they are nowhere near the team, or at the playing level of the Gators. They lit Gardner-Webb and the O’Connell Center up last night.

    Veterans Chiozza, Allen, Hayes and Gak played well. Grad transfer Koulechov was the flame thrower, scoring 34 in just about every way possible. Hudson also looked good in his minutes. The freshman played beyond their years and added depth and fluidity to the scoring potential of a powerful and multi-faceted Gator offense.

    Defense was very good at times (with the starters) but much work is still needed. It’s hard to imagine this offense ever having a problem getting buckets.

    As good as the Gators played there is a lot of room for improvement from everyone except “Three-gor” Koulechov.
