After a week off Andrew Spivey and Nick de la Torre return from vacation to bring you another Gator Country podcast.
While they were away, Jeremy Foley and the Florida Gators were rather busy. Foley was tasked with finding replacements for two of the most influential coaches in the University of Florida’s history in Billy Donovan and Rhonda Faehn. Foley did just that when he found 38-year old Michael White to take over the men’s basketball program and Jenny Rowland to guide the gymnastics program. Two gigantic, program shaping hires in the span of a week.
Also, over on the diamonds, the Florida Gators softball team won their regional and will begin play in the Gainesville Super Regional this weekend against Kentucky — a team they swept earlier in the year.
Kevin O’Sullivan’s ball club will take on Arkansas on Wednesday night for their first game of the SEC Tournament. The Florida Gators are in line to earn a National Seed in the NCAA Tournament with two wins this week — allowing them to play the remainder of the post season at McKethan Stadium.
Andre and Nick talk about all this and more in this week’s podcast. Hit the play button above and enjoy!
