    Just curious, how many VB games did you watch this season?

    Kirby;

    No offense, but this is a crummy post. We just went toe-to-toe with the #1 team in the country. Wisconsin was undefeated this year, had never been taken to 5 sets and they had a full extra day of rest then we did. To say "we folded" and it was an "epic collapse" is a bit much IMHO.

    Just watched the replay. Just an awesome mach with unbelievable defense. Gators actually won more points, just not at the right time. Didn't win, but Gators performed better than the experts expected. I will be very surprised if Wisconsin doesn't win it all.

    I'm picking Kentucky. The Wildcats are that good this season.

    Wisconsin? Fortunate to have Florida start slow in the first game and to come out of their timeout strong at 9-6 in the 5th set. I really do think Florida had the better team even though the Gators couldn't pull out the win.

    What does that have to do with anything? Do you have to watch a certain number of games to form an opinion?

    Kentucky is on the verge of an NC.
    Kinda bothers me that another SEC team might win a title before we do, considering our success in dominating this conference.

    Be careful Fella......
    This might be perceived as a bash on St. Mary. Did you watch the undetermined amount of games to develop this uninformed opinion?

    FYI, nobody minds intelligent discourse even if negative. But it is always received better if there is something to support the shots that are being taken. For each of your little shots at Coach Wise I responded with data and facts...haven't seen much of that from you.

    Okay... The Gators were up 9-6 in the 5th game against Wisky. They were outscored 9 points to 3 to lose the game. How do you want to sugar coat that?

    What are you even talking about? UF pushed the #1 seed to the brink in an elite 8 match and you bash Mary Wise? And when provided with all the overwhelming data for her career you try and boil it down again to the half a set? I can only help you so much, your gonna have to figure this out on your own.

    I never said she was a bad coach. I just don’t think she can be considered elite until she wins a NC. That’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it just like you are to yours. These thread responses are going no where. I’m done.

    Based on those parameters the Wisky coach must really be bad because they were swept last night losing all three sets to Texas.

    Kentucky makes one FF and wins in their trip there, unreal. Florida is the gold standard in the SEC and has been for years, it just sucks that this Johnny come lately program wins a title first. Only thing worse would be the Noles somehow winning a title next before the Gators.

    Kentucky was the best team this season. Unfortunately, I don't think the Gators have anyone to replace Holley Carlton coming in. Hope I'm wrong. UK will likely be tops in SEC and nation again.
