    Florida's win, coupled with AU loss to Mizzou (yup- Bruce lost to lowly Mizzou! GASP!!) and LSU loss to bama - Gators sit a game back of second in the SEC.

    Go Gators!

    As I said in the game thread if we play like we did tonight and against A&M we can beat UK at home.

    I hear ya! I get confused too. But the good thing about college basketball is that the team almost always control their destiny!

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves with looking at the standings. We haven’t exactly played world beaters these last two games. Still, I liked what I saw and am thrilled the guys balled out in front of Florida royalty tonight.

    We need to go 3 and 3 at least. We have to play like the first half because I don’t see any easy wins.

    "Now when Mordecai found out all that was done, Mordecai tore his clothes and put on sackcloth with ashes and went out into the midst of the city and wailed loudly and bitterly."


    I've said all season that I thought Mordecai (or fill in the name of your favorite negative nellie) has gone a bit overboard in response to our results so far this year. :cool:

    There's still a lot of basketball to be played, and I like the way some of the pieces on this team are showing development. And, we did okay in our first tournament this year, so....who knows...?

    exactly. if we play like we have the last 2 games, we should be able to take at least 1 of 2 against them.

    I think the content of this post is fair. The title? Not so much. If we end losing All our last games I think you would be ok With a post questioning team/program direction, but how about a post titled “For all the sunshine pumpers...”?One is content, the other just pejorative.

    I think, and hope, that we are all thrilled by our play the last two games. I know that the last two games of success, nor any two games of poor play this season, defines white and our program. Name calling ? Hmmm...

    But for the fact the title didn’t call anyone names.
    I didn’t title it “but for the hand wringers”.
    Hand wringing.
    It has been a frustrating season.... one I think all of us have been wringing our hands over at certain points.
    Me included.
    The point was- despite all of this- we are in a better spot than one might expect.

    A better analogy would be if we tore thru the regular season undefeated .... had a gleeful board all year....and got bounced in the opening round. I would be fine with a thread titled - “for all our bravado...”, or something similar.

    This isn’t directed at you, but I think there is a heightened sensitivity between the so-called “sunshine pumpers” and the “bashers”.

    The title was not directed at a specific segment, nor intended to even imply name calling.

    Haha

    Seriously, it will be tough, but odds are likely we'll split. Hopefully anyway
