    Following up on rserina's point that when the Gators have two double-digit scorers up front they advance in the tourney consistently, while when they only have one, they don't, and looking at this year's team that really hasn't shown much consistent scoring up from from Young, Yeguete or Prather although may from DFS or C. Walker (if he ever becomes eligible and proves capable of scoring rather than rebounding at this level), as well as the group possibility of scoring from both the 2 and the 3 from Frazier, Wilbekin, Carter, and possible Hill or Walker or maybe even Hill or D. Walker, this might prove to be one of the most interesting Gator teams of Billy D's tenure.

    What do you think?

    Considering the new foul rules and the number of players we have that can slash to the hoop, I think we'll score a ton from the free throw line.

    I think our depths will allow us the ability to exploit match-up problems and opponent weaknesses thru a bunch of different lineup looks.
    I think we will be very, very good by Jan.

    As long as Young and Yeguete (best friends) are not doing the FT shooting.

    The net effects of the foul change will be very interesting to see. Judging from the Exhibition game against Florida Southern, at least that group appeared to take those changes seriously.

    All the more reason to let Prather handle the ball at the 2....we need him.
    Hey...it's all about the points...and dunks.

    At the two? He probably wouldn't get many points or dunks (but plenty of turnovers) penetrating against smaller, quicker high major two guards. Heck, he has struggled to that at the three from time to time. He would fare much better creating fouls at the four. Few SEC bigs can stay in front of him.

    You need a good perimeter shooter at the two...and that ain't Prather.

    What's with your obsession with wanting to play guys out of position?

    Prather hasn't even been able to get significant minutes at SF during his career. He simply doesn't have the shot or handle to play SF full-time. SG? Forget it. That's insane.
