    Well, not really. :joecool:

    But I did do some write-ups/previews for Lindy's Magazine. Nope. . . I didn't get to do the SEC or the gators. I wrote for c-USA. So if you have any interest in fau, fiu, la tech, middle tenn, Texas San Anton . . . Look me up! Lol!

    Anyway, just got a copy of the magazine. Uf is ranked 8th. Curiously, it is not listed among either the top 10 backcourts... Or more surprisingly, top 10 front courts. Obviously... I was not given any input here! Lol!

    The former I can see, but the later is kind of crazy. Even without Walker the UF front court will be extremely good.

    Congrats Hoops. That's super cool. I know you have done some writing for Gator Country recently and are very knowledgeable about basketball. Did you major in journalism at UF?

    I did, but for better or worse- - - never made a career out of it. In fact, I never really tried. I have some regrets about that, but most journalists will tell you that it is not well-paying by any stretch (unless syndicated). So, I now write on the side and about things I love.... mainly basketball and fishing! :)
