Best Billy Donovan coaching job?: Aside from winning the fifth most games in the last ten years and winning back-to-back national championships, this might just be the best single coaching season of career. At this point I'd personally vote for the 2000 season, but we'll see. (Garry Smits, The Florida Times-Union)

Gators putting aside distractions: If I was ever worried that a group of players would be caught up in the distractions that come with a trip to the Final Four, this Gators' team wouldn't ever enter my mind. (Jesse Simonton, Miami Herald)

Shabazzed, the story: The Gators last lost to UCONN as we all know. (Chris Harry, GatorZone)

Kasey Hill battling turf toe: It took me about ten years of hearing about turf toe before I actually figured out exactly what it is and this is the first time I've seen it happen in basketball. (Landon Watnick, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Anticipation in Gainesville building: "Net Worthy" isn't the coolest saying by any means, but I guess it could always be worse. (Jeff Schweers, The Gainesville Sun)

Marquis Dendy on the way back: He was one of the many disappointments during the indoor season, but he's off to great start in the outdoor season so far. (Lawrence Laguna, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Baseball falls in extras to FAU: The extra inning loss ends a four-game winning streak for the Gators. (Jim Harvin, The Gainesville Sun)

Speaking of baseball: Let's Go Tribe!

House of Cards season two: Just finished watching it and it continues to be an amazing show. Probably the best single show currently out there.

How I Met Your Mother: Haven't seen the last season, but I've recorded it all and plan to begin soon.

Best ESPN reporters ever: This list is by popular demand, so here we go:

  • 1) Samantha Ponder
  • 2) Erin Andrews
  • 3) Jenn Brown
  • 4) Suzy Kolber
  • 5) Rachel Nichols

All I've really got is five. Never really cared for anybody else.
