    Hey guys! Some rather exciting news... Gator Country will be starting a Gator Country Basketball podcast! Andrew Spivey and Nick De La Torre kill their football podcast weekly, so I'm looking forward to joining the fold with some basketball talk. Me and Andrew will be recording tomorrow, so I was curious if anyone had any questions they'd like to ask! I would love to make questions from you guys as part of the discussion, so if you have anything you'd like to see talked about leave a comment here or send me a private message. Looking forward to some great basketball talk!

    I'm curious on your thoughts on Stone and Hayes. It seems like they came alive this week. Looking forward to the podcast!

    Why not bring back AKA's question about whether the Gators have taken the air out of the ball late in some games, since it was apparently too controversial for Mike White's call-in show. ;)

    Haha! I think @akaGatorhoops would rather hear Mike's interpretation then mine, but maybe I'll try :p

    What do you think of going to (4) 10 minute quarters in the men’s game? How does that alter strategy? Speaking of which, how does Mike White split up the game compared to other coaches. 4 or 5 minute segments? Emphasis on starting the game and start the 2nd half, and last 4 minutes of each half? Football has the 2-minute offense and a “4 -minute offense”, do hoops coaches do the same?

    Another discussion would be CMW’s inbound plays. What works, why they work? Play Design based on time on the clock, game situation and score, and what else?

    Should Miami be on the schedule every year?

    Billy D would schedule some games based on the hometowns of gator players - just so family and friends of the individual player could more easily attend a gator game to watch the player live. ( E.g. if a player was from the NE, billy would get a game up in that region....either a neutral site game or get an away game against a team in that region or state. ) Does Mike White have a similar strategy in laying out a schedule?

    I'm guessing it will be Wednesday, and in terms of going forward... potentially weekly. If the appetite is there for it, of course!

    And @harnettgator, thank you for all you do for the forum! You are a gem!

    Excellent idea and I hope it takes off. Need to keep in mind until football season ends, both college and pro, viewership may be down. Things should start picking up in the next few weeks based on past experience.

    I'm sure he may be tired of fielding them but any updates on injuries would be most welcome

    I have a question -will you include the transcript of the podcast a few days later like they do for football? I never have time to listen but can read the transcripts in a manner of minutes. Plus, I prefer the written wor in general.

    Sounds like a great idea! Congrats my friend. You should have a NBN fan spot like every week too where one of us joins the discusion for 5 minutes or something. Lol..ok I am kidding...sort of.

    Also, what are your thoughts on Egs and how will his impact help and hurt this team when he comed back?

    We are leading the SEC right now at 3-0, do you think we stay on top?

    Is the Podcast accessible from the GC Home Page?
    And a Q: How will the coaches and team manage any identity change if Egbunu comes back?
