    Had to be a very big confidence builder for Aberdeen to have a game like today.

    They’ve just got that one of a kind culture - did you know they have a tough preseason conditioning program?!
    ….,and a secret lingo all their own!

    Makes sense since they invented basketball at College Station

    Yup - that’s how they beat us the first time
    Refs stole that one

    They got a few more inexplicable ones today , but apparently not enough

    After all the upsets yesterday, as of this morning Awbie is #5 in the NET. So they're playing for a 2-seed, and with an outside shot at a 1-seed. Gators are #26 in NET, #24 in Kenpom. That's 6-to-7 seed range. A win over Awbrin could vault us into a 5. A loss won't hurt us.
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to bringing home some hardware and netting today.

    We lost to A&M in close ones with Taylor twice for three years. He needs to move on. Glad we were able to finally break through on a neutral court.

    Espn gave us less than an 8% win probability when down 18.

    I gave us less, frankly.
    Sooo glad I was wrong.

    That's quite a coincidence. ESPN usually has about an 8% chance of saying something that is not patently goofy, in just about any given situation. Cosmic symmetry in all its glory.

    Those announcers NEVER stopped talking about TAMU! Our guys would get fouled and they would talk about how great TAMU was on the previous play! They never thought UF had a chance.! But I like that we are still under the radar for a lot of the CBB world.

    Seems like that most games we play. Announcers fawning over the other team. I don't mind as long as we get the last word

    Hi Guys and Ladies,

    not on board as much as last year, but still watching all the time.
    Golden, as we all know was a great hire. Evaluations, mindset, etc. dude is special.

    big shout out to Aberdeen as he showed us all what we thought he could do. Proud of him for staying the course.

    And love Samuel, Condon, and Haugh. Special and so so nice to see aggressive basketball for the first time in several years

    Didn't Texas A&M recently make the conference tournament, become the darling of the announcers, have all the "bracketologists" penciling them solidly "in," only to be heartbroken on Selection Sunday? Quite frankly, after watching yesterday's game and listening to that lovefest, that is my dream for today. I want to see them as first one out. Let those same announcers wax poetically about Buzz's fiery support of his team through his passion-caused hoarse voice in the first round of an NIT game.

    Very happy for Aberdeen, he got the interview after the game.

    Incredible game, saved UF when all seemed lost.

    Loved that last corner three to get him to 20.

    I suspect PT distribution will change with the guards considering a performance like that!

    I really like coach Jimmie but it does seem like, in the SEC tourney, the announcers seem to favor the other guys.

    Dane Bradshaw? Great voice, competent announcer, handsome and a UT Homer to the max. (Of course, no blame either), but I have noticed his bias against UF.

    The CTG post-game is...just wow. What natural charisma. Like Bruce Pearl, but a less of the "watch me perform".

    Glad I never played with players that did not want to win.
