    It's been a fun offseason on the 'net board, thanks to @OklahomaGator. The jersey # elections are fun. If the mods do not object, once that event is complete, I'd like to hold a little Top 20 Gator hoopsters contest.

    Recently, I suggested all-time offensive/defensive teams contest, but I think this will be more fun. Here's how it could work: The panel will be open to all posters. Each panelist will select their all-time top 20 Gator players. I will compare all entries and calculate the avg ranking of each player. Panelists' selections will be compared with the avg player rankings. Panelists will receive pts for the difference between their ranking and the avg. If you select a player who was not represented in any of the other lists, you receive 20 pts. The panelist with the fewest points wins.

    Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions. I'll put out the call for panelists after @oklahoma's event is finished. Will leave the call open for about a week. One caveat: I'm only doing this if @akaGatorhoops, @channingcrowderhungry, and @fijigator participate!

    My plan is to add one poll and discussion thread a day. Should be finished with them in early July.

    Anyone picking Dan Werner gets an additional +50 point penalty.

    This one is difficult. To win, you have to pick everybody else's favorites.

    True - it has more to do with your perception of the consensus.

    Good analogy. I'll hope this, however, will not be a 100-person survey. That would take some time to calculate! :emoji_nerd:

    @OklahomaGator is almost finished with the Best Player at each Number event, so I want to Stokes the Shear Nembhardness of this Gak'd competition.

    I will initiate the discussion & explain the event rules shortly. In the meantime, a question for y'all. Should players on the current roster be eligible for consideration in a top 20 all-time list?

    Are you just using their play for us or as a professional?

    I think that's up to the individual panelist. The criteria are purely subjective. Panelists will give their 20. I will average them out and then compare the results.

    The greatest player by number should be finished by Monday would be my guess. Some of the polls that had obvious winners I closed early to move the event along.

    Ok all - I'm now opening the call for your top 20 all-time Gator basketball players. The contest will work as follows:
    • Do NOT post your top 20 here. Send them to me via PM.
    • After next Wed, July 10 I will start a new thread and post all picks.
    • I will take the first 20 panelists. Doubt we will get that many, but I'm capping it at 20.
    • All Gator player rankings will be averaged out to generate a consensus top 20. Your picks will then be compared with that list and you will accrue pts. Lowest score wins.
    • Pts are accrued as follows: Each player ranking on your list will be compared with the consensus list. If you rank a player 5 and they are 10 on the consensus, you are assessed 5 pts. If your player is not on the list, you are assessed 20pts.
    This is open to all on the Net board. Here's a shoutout:

    BTW - I leave the country tomorrow for two weeks. I will try to check GC semi-regularly, but I'm not sure what kind of wifi service we will have. Thanks in advance for your patience.
