    1. Is there one former Gator that you cheer for more than any other in the NBA?

    2. Who is the most hated opposing coach to ever come to the O-Dome? The most hated opposing player?

    3. What do you consider the bigger disappointment in recent Florida basketball history: (1) Teddy Dupay’s problems during his senior year; (2) Brett Nelson’s regression in his final two seasons; (3) Kwame Brown going to the NBA instead of coming to school to UF; or (4) Nick Calathes leaving early for the NBA?

    1. Brewer

    2. Pearl, Henderson

    3. Of those listed, I pick Dupay. Also huge disappointment in Drejer skipping out mid season.

    1. I am not that much of an NBA fan, so I probably root for each about the same.

    2. Coach: Bruce Pearl, I really enjoyed him at UTn and in the SEC, but he was certainly "hated" as a foe. Player: I can not really think of anyone who every year he came to the O'Dome had a great game.

    3. Wow there are all so different. Brown really does not count to me, he did what was best for him. Pretty much the same with Calathes. I am never disappointed in a player opting to turn pro. Nelson only disappointed on the court and it is not like one can say it was because he did not try, so I guess I will go with Dupay. Though before anyone gets too down on him for what ever he did, remember Shane Matthew who most UF fans like a lot, not only bet on games, but bet on games with a bookie in Athens, Ga. Still it was disappointing that Dupay lost his senior year for himself and UF.

    1. Chandler Parsons

    2. Bruce Pearl without a doubt, but Calipari is coming on strong. The most hated player would probably be Marshall Henderson.

    3. Dupuy

    1. No one more than any other.

    2. I think this is a trick question. The most hated opposing coach in the O'Dome was Don DeVoe, but only after he was no longer an opposing coach.

    I don't hate Marshall Henderson, but he does annoy me a great deal.

    3. Dupay. I hate to see kids screw up making bad choices.

    1. Not really.
    2. MHC: Eddie Fogler. MHP: Marshall Henderson.
    3. Dupay.

    Footnote: Nick Calathes did not leave early to play in the NBA. Incredibly, he left early to play in Greece. The original question is thereby disqualified and all results are hereby nullified. I declare myself the winner.

    oh yes, fogler for me was tops. pearl - I liked his antics and I think he genuinely likes Donovan and the gators in general.

    1. like 'em equally I guess. haslem maybe a tad more than anyone else.
    3. winning nat' titles seems to erase any disappointments.

    1)Noah. He plays the game with the same ferocity, competitiveness and intensity that propelled the gators.

    2) calipari. Players? I'm not sure what the consensus is, but for me: Ron Slay, Tony Harris, Demarcus Cousins and Henderson all rank very high.

    3) Duapy. . . By a mile. That was painful.
