    They just had a session on Sportscenter and talked about everyone in the top 5 except us. It is like they purposely leave us out of the conversation every chance they get. Even when they talk about our team they don't go in depth like they do with other squads.

    I think it's because we are playing Auburn. Not worth talking about Florida vs Auburn too them honestly. No one but Gator fans(including really Auburn fans) have any real concern here. Arizona struggling is a story on the road at Utah, Duke vs UNC is Duke vs UNC, Syracuse has struggled on the road as well and their big showcase them vs Duke is saturday, and Wichita is the pretty little underdog story everyone loves to hear about.

    U seriously don't think HS kids notice things like this? HS kids notice what teams are talked about and discussed by espn, fox sports, or whatever sports station. It is advertisement. You think Syracuse playing BC tonight is more noteworthy then us playing Auburn? In the grand schem of things no big deal, but in a HS kids mind that is another opportunity to see a teams name on tv.

    It's because we are not being televised by ESPN. The AU game will be on Sun Sports/Fox Florida.

    That's a pretty weak thing 4 U 2 b stressing about. And GatorRade pointed by posting those articles that your perception of a 2 minute segment on the daytime SportsCenter doesn't reflect reality.

    And to answer the question, no, I don't think high school recruits that have the ability to play at UF are thinking..."Hmmm, ESPN talks about those Syracuse guys all the time, I'm gonna go there." The amount that plays into decisions has to be approaching infinitesimal.

    Every once in a while, I am able to pull out this picture without it seeming too out of place. Thanks to your photo and our game tonight, this is the first time that the photo is doubly applicable. Gentlemen, she's gone from suck to to blow.

    I know that there has been a lot of complaining about our announcers, pretty much every night, but tonight was brutal. How these guys have jobs is beyond me.

    Seriously though, ESPN has given us plenty of love this past weekend, don't whine about a little thing where we get left out.

    It is odd that our game isn't mentioned on the front page anywhere right now.

    They have an title on ESPN.com "Florida barely extends win streak to 18". WTH are they talking about, many many basketball games are close, many are squeakers.

    Look if u got a different opinion fine, but taking stupid little shots isn't called for. I went to UF, have two kids there now and this is a pattern I have noticed over the years so I said what I feel.
