    The two teams meet for the third time with this season's series tied at one game apiece. We know the Gators are capable of beating The Tigers and we could really use this win to pad our chances at The Dance.

    Chris Harry's piece is not up yet. If he puts it up I'll add it in.

    LSU is rested, but the Gators are warm. Many times, the team that played the day before is more in the swing of things (see WVU today over TT).

    In today's Arky game thread, I stressed the need to go to war in retaining possession of the ball.

    Battling at the boards. Hanging onto the ball - chasing rebounds - being greedy.

    If we continue to pursue that attitude, we will be hard to beat.

    GO Gators!!!

    Will be interesting to see where lsu players' heads are at given they've lost their coach and a key player.

    I read they were working through the night to get Smart cleared for today, haven’t seen anything yet though today.

    This game is going to be as much mental as physical, if our kids come ready to play as hard as they have recently we can bring home the W, my guess is KHayes will have the boys revved up and raring to go!!

    I would be surprised if he played. Nothing has changed since they sat him.

    This isn't like a minor injury or academic qualification issue. This is a situation where LSU finally decided there's probably fire behind the investigation smoke, and suspended the player for damage control. Curious to hear that officials would meet through the night; what would they learn that they don't already know?

    Yeah, I had initially taken this afternoon off - to head to g’ville for SEC baseball opener.....but Gator Nationals have priced me out of the market: motels are even more expensive than a fall football weekend!
    Fortunately: got gator hoops! Can exercise a “stay-cation” at a local sports bar. Twin Peaks, here i come!

    Hoping for some bad karma to rain down on them for this!

    Not going to get back until like 1:20. Will have to stay out of the thread until I catch-up to avoid spoilers. Go Gators!

    The physical mismatch at each position between the two squads is pretty glaring. Kudos to the Gators for overcoming this - let's hope we're up to it one more time!
