Gators beat Kansas, 67-61: Kansas might have the bigger name players but the Gators, but at least for one night, had the better team. (Chris Harry, GatorZone)

Healthy Florida can contend for title: How many times in the last three or four years have we heard that the Gators could and should make a run towards the Final Four? I'll believe it when I see it at this point. (Myron Metcalf, ESPN)

Rematch set?: Even though the two aren't guarenteed to play in the next Big 12/SEC Challenge because the SEC hasn't set anything up yet, there are talks going on about the Gators heading to Allen Fieldhouse next year. (Kevin Brockway, GatorSports)

Expirence at quarterback next season: Looks like your 2014 lineup of quarterbacks will be Jeff Driskel, Tyler Murphy, Skylar Mornhinweg, Max Starver and Will Grier. Are you okay with that? (Robbie Andreu, GatorSports)

Danny Wuerffel gets HOF welcome: Wuerffel officially entered the College Football Hall of Fame yesterday as the 9th former Gators player or coach to acheive that status. I've got a feeling that there's going to be a lot more enshrinements for the Gators in the near future. Congrats to Wuerffel! (Robbie Andreu, GatorSports)

Falcons vs. Redskins: This Sunday in Atlanta. Hail to the Redskins!

Greatest video games ever: We've already touched on the greatest movies and songs of all-time. Now let's move on to video games.

  • 1) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)
  • 2) GoldenEye 007 (N64)
  • 3) NCAA Football 2003 (PS2)
  • 4) Mario Kart (N64)
  • 5) Tie: Harvest Moon (N64) and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Gameboy)

I'm guessing you can also tell what I consider to be the greatest video game system as well. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is my favorite game ever and I also think it's the greatest. I'm not alone in that opinion either and I don't even think it's really all that close. There are also three games in that list in which I rarely, and I mean rarely, ever lost at. GoldenEye 007, NCAA Football 2003 and Mario Kart 64.

I never once lost a game in NCAA Football 2003 to the computer or a human opponent (and I played that edition until midway through 2005) while entering tournaments and having a perfect 207-0 record in online play.

GoldenEye 007 is what every shooting game aspires to be, Mario Kart 64 is just pure damn fun (but if I'm not Toad, I'm not playing! Haha) and Harvest Moon on the N64 was unreal. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on the Game Boy was just downright brilliant.

Just missing the list were: Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (SEGA Genesis), Blades of Steel (NES), Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2), Mike Tyson's Punch-Out (NES), WWF No Mercy (N64), Microsoft Golf (Computer), Descent (Computer) and Contra: Hard Corps (SEGA Genesis).

You also can't go wrong with any of the Call of Dutys either.
