    happy to be here and super excited for both the basketball and football seasons! Basically all of my friends are Michigan fans so the last few years (minus the bowl game) have been rough but the outlook looks incredibly bright for the Gators in both sports so. Can't wait to watch the basketball team this year, feel like they have a good shot to win the entire thing.

    I’m assuming based on saying you live on the Detroit border you’re in Windsor or somewhere like that? How long have you been in Canada for?

    Google points me to an article that explains it.

    Sources confirmed to CBS Sports that the rationale for Martell's waiver appeal to the NCAA was that Ohio State changed its coaching staff and new coach Ryan Day had no place for Martell on the roster.

    How did you come to being a Gators fan? Was it similar to @Efawcett7’s story?

    That bowl game exercised a lot of demons, man.

    Honestly I'm not sure, I'm also a Miami Dolphins fan so that may have impacted it but for some reason if I ever went to the States for university I always dreamed of going to UF. We used to travel to Florida when I was a kid every single year and that may have impacted it as well. Also when I was really getting into the NCAA, it probably helped that both the football and basketball teams were top teams and I loved watching them. I'm all over the place with sports though, I'm a huge Red Wings fan and a Cavaliers fan for NBA. Hard to explain but I just enjoy watching all these teams so much more than any other team, even when they are struggling (the dolphins every single year)

    It's the politeness filter that's throwing things off. Language software, in its current state, doesn't have the ability to translate Canadian politeness into clear American bluntness. We're still trying to get Watson to understand the true meaning of "Bless your heart."

    I can relate. I was born and raised in Florida but decided the Maple Leafs were my team in hockey. Little did I know it was a sentence to a lifetime on coming up short.
