Nearly unanimous preseason #1 ranking by the coaches.
Every starter is returning. Exciting freshman class.
Looks to be a season of great expectations for Gator basketball!

EDIT: oh yeah... Lee Humphry Made 47 straight 3 pointers in preseason…prior to the Canada stand :woot:

It's going to be alot harder to win it all this year, UF will have a chance but it's very difficult to reapeat and there are much better teams at the top. Good luck, I hope the Heels and Gators meet up in Atlanta.

Great night on Tuesday playing only 21 minutes.
17 points
11 boards (7 offensive)
4 blocked shots
Throw in a steal.

Everyone talks about Noah, and rightfully so after last year's tournament, but I really think Horford is the best player on the Gators' roster. I definitely think he'll be the best NBA player, but he's become a man-child.

I think he'll make a serious run for 1st team all american honors at the end of the year.

He's 6'8" or 6'9", but moves like a guard, very fast and jumps out of the gym. Has a really nice 3 point shot. Brewer's best attribute is defense. He's close to being a shut down defender.
Biggest problem is his handle. He really needs to work on that and his overall turnovers... doesn't always make the best passing decision.

BTW, his nickname is Spiderman.
He's the most exciting player on the team. He can take over a game just as quickly as anyone.

Others are duped by the emdia which bow to K. Ask pete gaudet about K's class, ask Greg newton, ask Mike Dunleavy, ask William Avery, ask the officials he curses at all game,, ask the fans who sit behind the bench who have to listen to him cursing at the refs and the players all game. The media portrays him one way but those who follow the situation know what he's about.

Man, I had this nice long post about the Priarie View game, and my father-in-law's computer took a crap :fire:

The freshmen look pretty good, especially the 6'11'' Speights. He's very athletic, and doesn't look all that raw for someone new to basketball.
Marshall at F has some solid fundamentals... moves well w/o the ball, boxed out like crazy and owned the boards. Nothing exciting, just a very solid 4.
Powell is a 6'2" G. IDK what Donovan has in store for him, but he has really strong passing instincts, and is a great athlete. We'll see about his shot, because they had to twist his damn arm to shoot the ball.
Werner is another 6'7" F. Really good range, but kind of akward with the ball.

Hodge looked great! That dude is SO fast :eek: He played 6-7 minutes with the freshmen, and they flowed better than I expected.

Prairie View had no business being on the floor w/ UF though. It just wasn't fair with Noah and Horford out there.

:tantrum: I've been out of town for a few days, and I've had very limited internet access.

Last night's game was exciting, but sucked for UF fans.
Cory Brewer played well, but was still out played. That is very rare.
Noah's line looks okay, but his defense was no where near the Joakim Noah we've seen for the past year... same thing for Horford.
59% from the line :confused: That's how you lose, every damn time against a worthy opponent. Horford's performance in particular was the killer.

The good thing about college basketball is that you can actually have a "good loss". Maybe it was too many games in a short span? Maybe it was too many patsies? Maybe it was reading too many press clippings?
IDK, but that was not the real Gators I saw out there.
They were largely uncohesive offensively, and were running in all the wrong directions on defense.

Props belong to Kansas, because (short of UF's free throw woes) Kansas can claim responsibility for Florida playing that way.

Redemption vs. OSU is less than a month away :woot:


So, no one posts here when UF is winning, but as soon as the Gators lose one you guys start coming out of the woodwork :lol:

The blood work came back Tuesday morning and the news was not good. Florida junior forward Corey Brewer (http://gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Corey_Brewer), who played through the Las Vegas Invitational over the weekend with the flu, was diagnosed with mononucleosis before Florida's game with Southern.

With Brewer out and forward Joakim Noah (http://gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Joakim_Noah) ailing with flu-like systems, Florida still held winless Southern to a record-low point total in the shot-clock era. The fourth-ranked Gators beat the Jaguars 83-27, relying on their freshman class for much of the second half.http://gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061129/GATORS02/211290345

That really sucks if it's Mono. It also explains some of poor play by Brewer and Noah that past two games.

but allow us to enjoy the (seriously) huge implications of our win over UF in basketball tonight.
Last year, they left FSU out of the NCAA tournament with a 20-win season, and a 9-7 record in the ACC (the best conf. in college basketball) because they were unimpressed with our out-of-conference wins (BS).

Can they say that again this year?

Great job by FSU tonight. You guys have really improved over the past few years. This game used to be a gimme. Last year UF was put on notice. This year FSU made sure we knew they weren't screwing around.

IDK what's going on in Gainesville, but they're running around lately like they've never played together. Looks like UF needs to lose a few more to get their **** together.

Noah must be really sick, because he looks like a freshman again.

Oh well, this is what I get for my prayers being answered with the BCS.

Having just watched the Gators and Buckeyes game I have to say I think Noah is ready for the NBA, while Oden probably has more potential but he doesn't look like he is ready for the NBA just yet. Noah had been going against college players while Oden has played against high school guys. Oden should be better once his wrist is healed.

He is actually a lot stronger than you think considering his wiry frame. Plus he can always hit the weight foom if need be. I don't think it's too big of a deal.

12-23-2006, 11:06 PM
That was the sweetest damn victory in quite some time :D

Oden is the truth! For being injured still, and obviously not in shape, he still had a noticable effect on the game. He looks like he's 45. I hope he jumps to the NBA before he really figures his game out and owns the NCAA.

Horford was inspirational. Despite all the press for Noah, Horford's best all-around player on the team, and the guy with the brightest NBA future.

This is the team I've been waiting to see all year. After the first 5 minutes, Green was outstanding (all those early turnovers had me going :tantrum: though).
Lee Humpry, was scoring inside??? Hell yeah!
Corey Brewer, just makes me shake my head. At 6'9", he can shut any player PG-PF down. He can shoot the ball like no one's business, and he jumps the passing lane like a pesky little G. I believe he actually had a good game handling the ball, which is my biggest worry with him. Spiderman is the most exciting guy to watch on the Gators!

That place exploded when the football team came out. They didn't show much on TV. Baker, Nelson, McDonald, and Tebow all spoke to the crowd. Baker was funny, saying Meyer needs to find out how to make him eligible until he's 30.
Meyer said that Nelson made him promise that he wouldn't make Reggie speak. So, of course he handed Reggie the mic. When Reggie finished, the crowd began the "One more year!" chant. Meyer made sure Reggie understood it saying, "They want one more year Reggie" with a big smile.

Meyer didn't miss a beat. At the end of his short speech he reminded everyone of how bright the future was bringing Harvin and Tebow up front, then having Tebow address the crowd.

As the football team started to leave, the basketball team was coming out. The first few guys ran along the top of the court like they normally do, but then Noah came out. He sprinted straight to the team and was followed by the rest. They were all giving out high five's and hugs. It was pretty cool. First play of the second half was that alley-oop. Just drove the crowd nuts.

Their backs were to me, and I couldn't get very close, but here's a pic with Meyer speaking.

7 1/2 minutes into the game, UF's lead was >10, and they never led by less than 10 the rest of the game. It wasn't much of a game if you were watching on tv.
Al Horford flat out dominated.

The name of this game was rebounds. UF 40, UT 21.
UF shot 55%, and was better than 50% from 3.
The lead only fell below 20 with about 4 minutes left because UT had apparently reached their limit of fouls. At that point no blood no call for UT.

You're not going to believe this one. Joakim Noah literally had to cool down teammate Corey Brewer by slapping out flames on the backside of his pajamas last week in the dorm room the two share with fellow Florida juniors Al Horford and Taurean Green.



The scare, which Noah, Brewer and a few of the extended staff were chuckling about late Saturday night, occurred a week ago Wednesday, on the day the Gators played host to Vanderbilt. The incident wasn't publicized and Brewer was a bit surprised when asked about it as he walked toward the team bus.


"Who told you? Jo?" Brewer asked, laughing. "You remember the opening in the kitchen where you look through [to the living room]? Well, Jo's mom had come in and lit some candles to clean the place up and I didn't know. I was standing there and I felt my butt get hot.

"I looked behind me and I was on fire," said Brewer. "So, I was about to drop down when Jo hit me. He put the fire out and burned his hand."

Sure enough Noah has a burn mark about an inch long on the back of his right hand.

"I saved his life," said Noah, smiling through his response. "My mom had candles everywhere and Corey had these $5 pajamas on that he had never worn before. He just caught on fire. You should see it. He's got this hole on the back the size of four or five eggs. I was just hitting at it. Maybe that's the only way to slow him down."

Exciting game last night. Florida couldn't hit water falling out of a boat in the second half. I guess the silver lining in last night's win is this: even playing their C game, UF can beat a tough, ranked, conference opponent on the road in an EXTREMELY hostile environment. That's not so bad after reading it. I felt much worse about the Gator's game last night, than I do now.

Oh baby! 9pm Saturday night.
The best thing on tv will be UF at UK. Not only do you get #1 at #18, but you get a budding rivalry, and a home team that hasn't allowed the last two visiting #1 ranked teams to leave with a win.


Oh yea, and you'll get at least a dozen obligatory shots of the best thing Kentucky has going for them.

Well, that was pathetic. Nothing worked, no shooting, turnovers left and right, couldn't stop Vandy's shot.
Vandy played great, can't take anything away from them. I always hate when UF goes to Nashville. If it's possible for a basketball court to be gimmicky, Vandy's is. Bench under the hoop, and the stands are so far away. I think Minnesota? has an odd setup with the height of the court. IDK, it's just weird in Nashville. I've heard over the years that visiting teams are thrown off by the stands being so far back, affecting their depth perception. My buddy who's a basketball coach says the bench being under the hoops has to drive the coaches nuts since they can't communicate up and down the court, especially when there are foul shots at the other end.

Anyway, hopefully this will refocus the team. They looked lost the entire game.

UF is assured a 1 seed(unless they tanked it which obviously won't happen) so any loss at this point is not a big deal.

Florida was due for this loss. The last couple of games they played were closer then they should have been and you just got the feeling they were going to take an L. I mean Alabama should have beat them the game before but blew a huge lead and played like crap in the 2nd half. No big deal for Florida, just a bad day that was due. They'll be a #1 and should still win the SEC tournament!

I really hope they're getting all this crap out of their system now.
The turnovers are bothering me much more than the shooting. I have no doubt that the shooting will turn around.
But, the turnovers... IDK what the deal is, but they look mentally tired. Al Horford is the only one playing worth a damn right now. I've always said that he's the best player on the team, but Noah's the one they need to get it together. He's the emotional leader, and when he's rolling, the team moves with him.

Attention:
Calling the real Florida Gators!
Please step forward, play some ****ing defense!

I really don't care that this losing slide mirrors last year's. Enough is enough. I'm still not too concerned with the shooting. A team with good shooters will always straighten itself out. It's the turnovers and defense that totally baffles me. I'm just a normal fan, w/o much x's and o's insight, so I can't really say what's wrong. But, I know this: a few weeks ago UF had one of the best if not the best defensive FG%. The last three losses they've allowed 57.1%, 51.1%, and 58% shooting. The loss against LSU (only 51.1% :rolleyes: ) they were out rebounded 34-22, W/O Big Baby!!! :tantrum:

Are you serious? There is no way that Oden had 1 foul while our big men had 12. Just look at the play where Oden basically murdered brewer, and then when Chris Richard fouled out because he was boxing out.

Jai Lucas waited - and waited. Well, finally the unsigned senior point guard and McDonald's All-American announced his decision at a news conference on Monday afternoon. The 5-foot-10 floor leader chose between Florida, Kentucky and Oklahoma State.

Jai Lucas (Scout.com, No. 46), one of the top unsigned seniors in the country, announced he will sign with Florida at a news conference on Monday afternoon.

Lucas will now turn his efforts and try and lure his friend, Patrick Patterson, to go to school with him in Gainesville.

Man, I'd love to have that shirt, but it will never be available. The NCAA wouldn't allow it. You would have to know someone who works at a screen printing company, and have them make it for you all hush-hush like.
