    I could be wrong, but it seems like players are usually eligible once the fall semester is officially over.

    Not that it has any bearing on this, but when I was in college, my definition of when the academic semester was "officially over" would render him eligible approximately 2 weeks after the end of the drop/add period.

    No kidding - I was exactly the same way.



    Gary Parrish just wrote an update about Walker that isn't anything surprising to most of you.

    http://www.cbssports.com/collegebas...walker-not-enrolling-at-florida-this-semester

    It DOES answer the question I had about why Walker wouldn't enroll and start participating with the team as soon as possible - even if he wasn't cleared by the NCAA. Turns out its not just the NCAA being slow. Its the fact that Walker is still finishing "course work" needed to become eligible - per the source.

    Is he officially in eligible the season? Got a message from a rival teasing me saying he has no chance to play this season for Florida and it was official. I'm praying not.

    That doesn't seem to be official at all. Looks like December is still the target.

    No, just fall semester. Most of our games are in the spring but it would have been nice for him to practice with the team this fall.

    Whew good this was some annoying coworker who went to Georgia but is a Duke bball fan for some reason. Talk about being annoying! Having Chris in the spring would be a huge boost to the teams sad to hear he is on target our people believe! Let's go Chris keep working hard!

    Choosing to be a fan of Duke basketball without going to Duke is just the worst thing you can do.

    Yeah, I'd much rather have him late than never, but it does make it more questionable if he'll ever be a big contributor this season.

    How long will it take for him to figure out where he belongs on the court when they're in mid-season practice mode? Hopefully, no longer than about March :wink:

    Still has a chance to play this season.

    I'm not as basketball savvy as some on here but I frequently hear that the four is the hardest position to play at UF. That can't help Walker.

    Fingers crossed for a December debut then.

    Seems to me the best case scenario is for Chris to make it in beginning January and play enough to help out and want to come back for a full sophomore season. Sort of like an EE in football.

    Walker:

    "Now I understand how serious high school is, and that you can't take the work lightly," Walker told ESPN.com on Tuesday. "I didn't do as well, and work as hard as I should have early in high school.

    "It's a minor setback, and every day I'm working hard to get to Florida. My plan is to definitely be at Florida. I'm working every day to make sure I get to Gainesville."

    Losing a semester stinks but certainly isn't the end of the world. Walker will have time to practice and work on his own, and I'm guessing he'll play some in the spring.

    I am excited to see Harris and Finney-Smith play alongside Patric, Wil and Casey. Harris and DFS are experienced, and they've been working with the team for a year, so they should know Billy's system and be able to play a lot, or even start. Patric, Will and Casey should all be improved, and they're all seniors with a ton of experience. This should be a solid frontcourt and the strength of the team.

    Go Gators.
