    Let's hope the guys come out with the same fire and intensity as they did last game.

    From Chris Harry @gatorzone

    GEORGIA at FLORIDA

    When: Wednesday, 9 p.m. (EST)
    Where: Exactech Arena/O'Connell Center, Gainesville, Fla.
    Records: Florida (17-8, 8-4); Georgia (13-11, 4-8)
    TV: SEC Network (Mike Morgan and Pat Bradley)
    Radio: Gator IMG Sports Network (Mick Hubert and Bill Koss)



    STAKES (The Setup)
    [​IMG]
    The Gators are back at Exactech Arena/O'Connell Center on Wednesday night for one of just three remaining home games this season.

    After a depressing run of three straight losses in Southeastern Conference play (two of them not close), Florida has bounced back to win its last two league games, beating LSU at home and following that with the team's most complete performance of the season in Saturday's 65-41 road victory at South Carolina. In both outings, the Gators displayed the kind of effort and unselfishness that has been missing too often in games this season. Whether they can maintain those traits will determine where this team stands come March. Georgia, meanwhile, is in a nasty nosedive, having lost six of seven, with the one victory -- you guessed it -- coming against Florida at home two weeks ago. The Bulldogs have been beaten by double digits in each of their previous three losses, most recently Saturday, 78-61, on the road at SEC leader Auburn. ... When UF and UGA met Jan. 30 at Athens, the Bulldogs got 20 points and seven rebounds from forward Yante Maten, but it was a combination of the Georgia defense and hustle, plus stone-cold second-half Florida shooting that determined the outcome. The Gators made just 31 percent of their field-goal attempts after halftime, including a stretch when they missed 20 of 21 shots. The game was tied at 48 with just under 11 minutes remaining, but UF scored just two field goals the rest of the night. ... Florida leads the all-time series 113-101 and had won eight of nine until the last meeting, which was Coach Mike White's first loss in five cracks against the Bulldogs.

    Great camera angle for the TV crowd. What? No, you mean we get half empty seats for a Florida/Georgia game. Unbelievable somebody thought half empty seats are better.

    Anyone else feel like they need to call in the Wolf so they can fit in Valentine's without missing this game?

    It feels like I will panic if we lose so we better win.

    For the game, I hope we realize that Maten is going to get his. Just don't let the rest of the team win the game for them.

    For me, I am planning to get prepared for the game by....taking an afternoon nap. 9pm games are not friendly to my usual routine.

    Listening to CMW's pregame interview with Mick on the Gator Radio Network, and he just said the most interesting thing. Said: "Since I've been back in the league these last 3 years, UGA is the best team in the conference (in my opinion) at defending with physicality and legality."

    Hmmmmmm..... :cool:
