    We've been 'Others' most of our entire lives.
    Must beat those Volunteers & the Sweaty One to beef up the resume.

    How is Oklahoma still ranked?? 2-6 in their last 8 games. I just don't get it.

    Thank goodness we didn’t make the top 25. Would’ve been the sure kiss of death for our success this week based on how we have played After getting ranked in recent weeks.

    That's great and all, but only 1 of their losses were against a ranked opponent, WVU, who themselves are ranked ahead of us for some unknown reason after being 4-6 in their last 10. We are 1 of 2 teams with two wins against the top 10 this year, the other being #8 OhSU.

    They have a popular high scoring player that is promoted by ESPN constantly like he is next coming ...

    Amen to that. Chris Harry put it well after the South Carolina game:


    Now, Florida turns its attention to Georgia, which manhandled the Gators in the second half of its 72-60 win Jan. 30 at Athens. UF will need a third straight fiery effort to bang with Yante Maten and the Bulldogs' size advantage down low. Do the Gators have that in them?


    After what happened in Athens, no matter how badly things have gone for the Dawgs since, they will come into Gainesville assuming UF can be shoved and harassed out of any offensive scheme and easily held off the boards. Our kids must practice and prepare to meet the standard of 40 minutes of determined effort that they set in Columbia.

    You mean a guy who turns it over like crazy and doesn't play defense because his focus is offense. Sounds like your typical NBA all-star. Give me Cheese over over this kid any day.

    Number 24 in Power Rankings and we have moved up to “should be in” from “work to do”. Need to beat the uglies to keep moving.

    OU lost to #7 TT last night, giving them their 7th loss in their last 9 games. I wonder if they'll move up in the rankings.

    ESPN was riding Young's dong before and during last night's game, this morning they switched over to LeBron. Wouldn't want America knowing Young shot 0-9 from 3 and had 6 turnovers.

    Do yourself a favor and stop watching ESPN. You'll be much happier. I limit my viewing to actual games and College Gameday (basketball edition). Otherwise it's SEC network all the way.

    I watched Sportscenter every morning in the 90s and got spoiled by Stuart Scott, Rich Eisen, and Dan Patrick. No one today can even compare to their contributions. I limit it to games and checking scores online. If Florida makes the front page I'll click on it but otherwise I just skip everything. Them covering LeBron, LaVar, and other useless drama 24/7 was too much for me.
