    Some of you may believe that means nothing, but I freaking love it. Every five minutes now I hear UF's name during broadcast and the recognition for our Seniors and Billy is awesome. It may not mean as much to blue blood programs but we get forgotten about far to much. I'm watching Duke..and Vitale is talking about Florida. That may the first time in history we've been mentioned during a Duke game by him. We already have the target on our back, I'll take the extra arrows coming at us because the ride is all too fun.

    Yeah, Vitale said UF deserved to be ranked #1 in the next poll.

    Great, but scary. Just feel uneasy about it all.

    I can't get over the Gators winning 19 in a row and being 25-2. It is just awesome! I love them, but I would have never have guessed the season would have gone as it has so far. It is so much fun to watch them play and how great they play together as a team. It is also interesting how they are something like 10-2 in games decided by 10 or less points and I believe 0-6 last year in games decided by 10 or less points. I feel totally confident in them in close games this year. I wonder if Chris Walker will ever log more than five minutes a game. In all honesty, they don't really need him, but it's nice that he can give the other bigs a few minutes more rest than maybe they wouldn't have normally possibly gotten. And, Patric's free throw shooting has improved. We are lucky to have Billy D, too! Go Gators!!

    This. Those of us that remember getting that first number one ranking only to get pummeled by KY at their place the very next game, feel just a tad uneasy. I DO love hearing our name every other sentence though!

    I agree.

    I'm glad that future recruits will see the Gators ranked #1. For a while, we'll steal some of the attention that's normally showered on Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, North Carolina, Michigan State, Syracuse and the other usual suspects ad nauseum.

    Actually, Dickie V was the one that said it was "the year of the Gators" either before or at the very beginning of the tournament during our first NC run.

    I walked under a ladder chasing a black cat. A week later my 98 year old grandmother died of natural causes. Never test fate man..I still cry myself to sleep because of what I've done ;/

    I was reading a thread after the Auburn win and Arizona loss that to be legit #1 we had to win and Miss and Syracuse had to lose their game. That seemed like a tall order then.

    Realistically it means nothing, if we're good enough to win the tournament we'll do it regardless of ranking or seed.

    But as a fan it's frigging awesome.
