    For the second time in a week the team makes a trip to the state of Alabama. This time to face the Crimson Tide coached by former Gator assistant Anthony Grant. Coach Grant is now in his fifth season at Bama and it would seem reasonable to think he is probably coming under pressure to start getting the program on track. Although he had a good enough season in 2011-2012 to make the Dance that has been his only year doing so and this year is not starting out on a good note for him and the team. Right now they are sitting on a 8-9 (2-2) record which is not going to win a strong following among the Bama faithful in my opinion. To say the Tide need this win would be a bit of an understatement so look for them to come out fired up as they try to turn their season around.

    The Gators, on the other hand, go into the game ranked #6 with a record of 15-2 overall and a perfect 4-0 in league play. The thing you have to really like about this year's squad is their ability to hold it together when things are not going well for them. They don't ever seem to panic and I feel no small amount of that can be attributed to having four senior starters on the squad. Couple that with the league-leading three point shooter in the starting lineup and a sold contingent of players coming off the bench you have the makings of an excellent squad. Although this team may not be loaded with superstars there is no doubt the talent level is very high and they play solid team ball. It also helps that we have one of the very best head coaches in the country and a superb group of assistants.

    I believe this will be another tough hard-fought game but if the guys can continue in the same fashion they have lately I also believe they will come out with another win.

    Nothing to say about Chris Walker that would not be breaking the rules on bad language. His treatment is, and has been, a travesty in my book.

    Go Gators!!

    Frazier gets his redemption after that forgettable performance on the plains.
    At the very least, we can expect the Bama guards won't be quite like Auburns.

    Definitely expect Frazer II to hit at least three treys.

    The key for the Gators winning tonight is for Wilbekin to stop their guard, Trevor Releford. He is their leading scorer averaging over 18 points. Shut him down and UF wins going away. Bama is not a team with great depth.

    I think we force someone besides Releford to beat us. Put Wilbekin on him and lock him down make him pass all night baby.

    I am excited for this game. It's been a long week. And we only have to wait like 36ish hours til the next game, which is also cool. This kind of Thurs-Sat turnaround gets the guys ready for tourney time.

    No Chris Walker again, by the sounds of it. It's hilarious how bad the NCAA is at its job. Make a decision, move on. It's not that hard. The poor kid's life is being heavily impacted by this and they just don't even care.
