    Nah, I'll stick to my (likely wrong) prediction and own up to it. I chose what I thought was a conservative 5-3

    Fell off the rails in the first game vs USCe....which I thought was an easy win, at home, for UF - especially after the dominating performance by UF vs Butler. But, the gator hoops rollercoaster has hit another nadir.hopefully we can get it back on the tracks, and fast!

    0-1 after game 1.

    Yes, I'm shaken right now and don't trust we can get a road win against Arkansas or even at Georgia if we play like we did last night.

    Switched to 2-6.

    Honestly 1-7 is possible.

    Going into the SEC schedule, I made a note on my printed schedule my predictions and had us at 5-3. That said, I was wrong on both games so far. Hope I'm wrong on the next 2!

    I predict a win: gators lose.
    I predict a loss: gators win!

    After game 2 (of 8) the gators have split and are now 1-1.

    I feel this is on pace for a 4-4 result, what do you think?

    1-2 after 3 games.
    I think everyone had the Vols game has a loss.
    Gators have to run the table from here for many of the predictions to turn out correct.

    I see some one picked 2-6. We are in need of fixing some faults.

    We’ll see what turn the rollercoaster next brings us.

    After the Miss State loss on the road, the Gators are now 1-3 for the month of January. Sinking fast! Can we right the ship. Get her sailing in a good direction?

    Still have 4 games remaining. Unfortunately, the could be losses! Gag!

    0.500 for January might be a good goal right now. I’d take it. Still some quality resume games ahead - if we can win them!

    So, 2 losses in a row. I was thinking we might have a season of alternativing wins/losses. But, instead, the loss occurred to a school our football team beat. So far we’ve lost to each of them. USCe, Vols, Miss State. Women gators hoops beat Missouri,...so maybe we’ll be golden vs UGA and UK, this year in hoops?!

    Well, alrighty then! Chalk up another in the W column. Now, 2-3. A chance to even the January slate on Tuesday at home in the Exactech Arena vs A&M.

    More importantly, we “ closed”. We overcame some 2nd half woes to close out the game strong! That’s got to be encouraging. See if it pays dividends down the road?

    The January slate of games is over.
    Gators finished 4-4. Who guessed it? (I did for one.)
    0.500 ain’t gonna cut it. We are hanging on to the bubble right now....don’t let it burst!

    Just win ...winning will get us to the dance!
