I think it was Bilas who said that nobody should pay attention to the fact that Florida is ranked #10. He felt Michigan and another team (maybe Indiana?) were the two best in the country, then he went on to say that Florida is in "that next group of three or four elite teams" after he mentioned those two.
He was extremely impressed with us. I don't watch a lot of college basketball (outside of Florida), but know enough about it to know that this Florida team is better than the two Elite eight squads that blew double-digit leads and squandered opportunities to go to the Final four over the last couple of years.
The loss at Arizona is nothing to be ashamed of, and it's coming out that Kansas State is a very good basketball team. K State plays great man-to-man D, and that's one of the few ways to beat this Gator basketball team.
