2007-08 Men's Basketball Schedule Released.

The Gators path on the hardwood is now set and it doesn't look as though the non-conference schedule will be much of a challenge.  Aside from the possible exception of a road game at Ohio State, as well as the recognizable names of Temple and FSU, Florida does not appear to have any real tests ahead of them in the early going.  Even then, the Buckeyes lost two lottery picks, the Owls haven't been truly competative for some time now and the Seminoles will be without their one superstar when they visit Gainesville.  I understand that this team is young, inexperienced and probably not as talented as the group that just won back-to-back National Championships, but those guys were once thought of in the same way before they stepped out from the shadows of the more established, recently departed stars like Anthony Roberson and Matt Walsh.  

This schedule looks like it could come back to haunt them if they don't dominate the cupcakes, fail to defeat their more recognizable opponents and/or struggle in the conference.  Moreover, I'm just not sold on the fact that the SEC's depth will be enough to prepare this team for advancement come March.  Maybe I'm way off believing that this team could surprise some people, compete for (if not win) another conference championship and perhaps even knock off a couple of squads in the Tourney.  Well, at least my first glance at this schedule makes me feel as though I might be alone in that thinking.
