I don't actually think Florida is that good and think they'll be gone pretty early, Sweet 16ish.


Yeah.. They lost to Arkansas.

Yeah, I was there.

Having seen them get routed by double digits for an entire game made me rethink just how good they are.

Beating up on the rest of the shitbag SEC doesn't really prove anything, the SEC is awful and I wouldn't take any SEC team very far in the NCAAT.

Arkansas was shooting 75% from the field & 70% from 3pt land at one point late in the 1st half

yall played out of your minds.....the game of your lifetime.....and still only won by a measly 11 points.

Arky will get raped in Gainesville later this season

I've been calling this for a month. Just get that feeling with this bunch. Regardless, they are a definite Final Four squad.

Not really, we played about normal for a home game.

And really? Measly 11 points? Sorry we put in subs up 27 with 8 minutes to go.

You trailed by double digits from the 14 minute mark of the 1st half through the rest of the game, you can't kick anyones arse harder. Florida was never even in it.

Probably, unfortunately the NCAAT isn't played in Gainesville and getting routed by NIT teams like Arkansas away from home only prove Florida is an early round exit waiting to happen.

Early round doesn't mean 1st round, unless you Missouri it up.

Would be shocked if they made it beyond the Sweet 16.

80-69.

sweet16 is an "early exit"??

when's the last time Arky wasn't an "early exit"? 1994? BJ Young, 6th Man of the Year

I'll be shocked if any SEC teams make it to the Elite Eight.

Florida is by no means a lock to get past the sweet16, but this team is better than the last 2 years, in which both the last 2 UF teams reached the Elite8.

were you shocked with the last 2 Florida teams? Cause I was shocked we didn't make the Final 4 in either of the last 2 years.

Right now I think Kansas is the biggest threat. McLemore is a superstar, plus Withey and Kevin Young are solid in the frontcourt.

ive been high on florida all year and i love them right now but i have to comment on how hilarious it is that someone high on kansas mentions kevin young. the dude does exactly what he is supposed to but it's just funny he gets a mention at all.

when kansas is on, they are as dangerous as anyone. we haven't got to see much of that lately (outside of last night) and im gonna need more convincing after such a poor stretch. florida has looked awesome all year against the sec but the league is absolute and utter shite. their loss to k state is perplexing as is the arkansas game. i dunno what to make of them as they continue to rape every inferior team but play weirdly sometimes.

Gonzaga is gonna be a threat if the right two teams get knocked out early

Withey is a stud but overall I don't see KU being a factor at all come March.
