Who Wants To Dance?

It looks like our Gators are going back to the Dance barring a major catastrophe. With the 75-62 blowout against Tennessee Billy Donovan also notched another 20 win season under his belt for the 12th season in a row, the longest streak in the SEC.

Tennessee came in ranked #17 with a six game winning streak against the Gators. They really needed this win because it keeps them alive for second place in the East. Possibly giving them a first round bye in the SEC tourney, and also giving them that swagger they have lacked since the Champs ran the court.  

“More importantly, Florida probably secured a spot in the NCAA field for the first time in three years,” according to ESPN.

After the back to back champs all left to further their careers Billy D signed a #1 recruiting class and everything seemed to be going in the right direction. Then for the first time since Donovan became the coach at Florida, they missed the NCAA Tournament 2 years in a row. Well, were back! And some pessimist might complain that this team has no shot to go deep into the dance this year, but I honestly don’t care. Not making it into the dance three years in a row is like being a 40 year old virgin; at least we can say we got in, even if it wasn’t for long. And I never expected the 2000 team to make it to the Final either, and this team has the talent to be great as well.

 

Chandler Parsons, Vernon Macklin, Alex Tyus are all juniors. Actually the only senior on the entire team is Dan Werner. I know we will all dearly miss oh Danny boy, but I am pretty hope full for this team’s future. Even if you’re not a huge basketball fan, and football is your baby, look at it like this… Gators exposure is Gator exposure, no matter the sport.

Please be kind and use good grammar.
