    Are you hearing things or is that your gut?
    There are a couple things out there that seem pro-Florida, the info is so diluted I know.

    My opinion above is not based on insider info...or the system. ;) I was just saying what my gut is feeling.
    I sure hope you are right my friend.

    Then there is Aaron Torres of FoxSports saying in the last hour that he has three sources that state KB is still "torn on all counts" and "has no idea what he wants".

    Unless one of those three sources is named Blackshear, then this is just more of the same BS guesswork.

    Breaking: In the last couple of hours I have had four sources tell me that Blackshear will wear orange next season.

    Today's the day!

    KBJ will decide today.

    Or he won't.

    But today IS the day we'll learn if he decides or he won't today! We can celebrate that.

    That is one of the funniest shows I've ever watched and I can't understand why so many people I tell about it either haven't heard of it or have watched it and weren't impressed.


    I'd want to give KB and his family credit for playing everything so close to the vest here but I wonder how accurate the information they conveyed to each school was.

    I think you are right, though I doubt anything was intentional. From what I hear, the kid is super polite. And perhaps that demeanor contributed to each school thinking its visit went so well.

    Nobody would expect sarcasm at this point! Insane to think that any of you would go through with it. What a bunch of madlads.

    Here is some actual news concerning Blackshear, the buzz has cooled off UF for about 2-3 weeks. I don't see him coming here unless he's trying to shock the world. From what I've been seeing (up to this morning), he's moving towards staying or going to Tennessee. Kentucky had a good shot, but it looks like they've cooled.

    The buzz has only cooled off from the outside... with media and external speculation following whoever had the most recent visit.
    I suspect Florida has remained very much involved, despite the media not being aware of or reporting such.

    I know I am biased, but I don't see how UF isn't his best option. Assuming he wants to maximize playing time; play on a contender; be near home; be in his field of study.

    I agree. There’s a reason why UF has been rumored for months.

    On the other hand, if Blackshear thought it was so open and shut, there wouldn’t have been other visits.

    I still think we have a good shot, but it does seem like nothing is certain here.

    Is CMW able to be in contact with him as well? I'm not sure of the contact rules for grad transfers. I would like to think that he has been in communication daily.

    You don't have to be biased to see from a team potential perspective Florida offers the most. Look at what we have been able to do with severely flawed and depth challenged teams. This team is primed for a Deep tourney run all the while being a centerpiece.

    At the end of the day a guy has to go where he wants to go. I just hope his process and decision making hasn't been polluted along the way by family, coaches, boosters, girlfriend etc etc
