    What would you say to them?

    I would emphasize how a win over UK would look on our postseason resume.

    I would tell them to have fun while not letting their concentration get down.

    I would remind them that for some this will be their last game on Billy Donovan court and it will be a memory they'll take with them for the rest of their lives.

    Lastly, I would tell them that they have everything they need to go out and get a win. It's all right there within their grasps. And I would tell them how proud I am of their accomplishments and the fact they never let adversity get them down.

    I’d tell them not to forget when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor...or maybe the Alamo. Tough choice. ; )

    I know your username probably says a lot but it's a bit early to be drinking, isn't it?:)

    I like Hall’s comment about all these athletes playing the last game in the Odome together. I would just add, go out and have fun, play together but bring it the best that you have in you! Florida is a launching pad for talented players. Good luck and shoot with confidence. Each and everyone of you, when you give it all that you have, raises the quality of the team, that’s all anyone can ask!
    Go Gators, I will be in the Bridgestone waiting for ya’lls arrival and continued good play.

    I'd simply tell them how incredibly overrated Kentucky is and how even a 50% effort will be enough for an easy W. What matters most is their health - emotional and physical - and that they should spend time thinking mostly about those things during the game. That and girls. They should try and find ones they like in the stands. During play of course. :D

    Tell them that they already blew out Pearl and Wade, so a third cheater should be a piece of cake.

    Now Rem, we know you are a kitty die-hard and that our guys are BMOC. They already have the girls. Your big is as soft as our big, it comes down to who can shoot and whoever the refs are favoring. Just glad we get a second chance at the Kitties! We know Cal is telling them if you don’t care, neither do I, it will just hurt your draft status and money. They will play hard no doubt, they don’t have anything else to do! LOL

    School, no my tutor takes care of all dat!

    I’d say:

    Great moments are born from great opportunity, and that's what you have here today, boys. That's what you've earned here today.

    One game; if we played them ten times, they might win six. But not today! - not this game on Billy Donovan-freakin’ floor!!

    Today: we run with them. Today, we shoot with them. Today, we guard them, and today, we shut them down because we can!!

    Today: we are the greatest college basketball team in the nation!

    You all were born to be basketball players—every one of you. You were meant to be here, as Gators - today. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over! I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great basketball team the Wildcats are!! Sick of hearing about the big blue nation! Screw 'em!!! This is your time. Now go out there and take it!

    I would say...

    Guys it’s been about the same thing for us the entire year. It’s been about us becoming the best team we can be. Tonight is not about the past and it’s not about the future. It’s about right NOW! And you guys have got to want this night to last forever. You’ve got to want to run and play and defend all night long. You’ve got to live in the moment and understand there’s going to be adversity and there’s going to be challenges. That is what’s brought us close together as a team has been the adversity and the challenge. Live in the moment, cherish each moment and go out there and play as a team!

    I would tell them we are undefeated on BD court. Pay tribute to BD and those that came before you by finishing the season that way. Make it seem like we have not lost on this court and will not lose on it.

    Just play your best boys and have fun, there will be ice cream and trophies for everyone. (oh wait, that was when I coached 3rd graders and I actually was harder on them!).

    I actually told the kids that we play to have fun and I promise you it is more fun to win. So win!
