    Contrary to many (most) I enjoy listening to Colin. I recognize that his goal is to get folks fired up so he often creates a controversial take on various issues. I do find him to be more entertaining than most of the sports talk show hosts and that would ultimately be the reason for having a show.

    That being said, he picks Florida as his dark horse team that could (not will) win the tournament.

    He discusses the tournament teams in general first and the Gators in the last minute or so of this excerpt.

        Not a chance we beat Jay W and Nova. Colin is awful.

        Nice to dream. Yeah, possible :
        1) if Egor sets his body, then shoots unrushed = that's 24+ points
        2) if Stone goes full confident = that's nearly 20 pts
        3) if Hudson hits 3s and drives for 26
        4) if Allen reincarnates to Allen = that's 24 points +
        5) if Chiozza steals aplenty and hits his 3s = that's 16 pts.
        Lord, we score 110. OMG, Cowherd is right. Gators win! Gators win!

          It can get crazy in the tourney. Who knows but we'll need good play, shots that fall, and luck from all areas of the bracket. Stranger things have happened.

            I have a heard a few people claim outside of the top seeds we are probably the ones that could do it but I think White couldn't resist slowing things down to cost us a game before we won 6 straight games.

            Let's try and get out of the first round first. If our 3-pointers don't drop, this team could lose to Gainesville High School.

              My disappointment is that coaching has had all year long of observing this team's glaring deficiencies yet has not directed any single improvement. If they never practice at getting more dynamically effective, it's irrational to expect them to dominate any dynamic tourney-quality opponent. One stupid drag-azz game & this team is out. White directed dragg-azz a lot.

                This team could beat any team in the nation when they shoot well and play all around good team basketball...they could also lose to almost any team in the nation when they play with their heads up their ass and not only miss shots but are constantly taking really really bad shots. This is one of the hardest teams to predict.

                  .
                  Bingo. It's maddening. It's possible they could catch fire and storm to another Final Four. It's also possible (and a much more likely scenario) that they bow out in the 2nd round going 4-31 from the arc.

                    This team lacks the mental fortitude required to win multiple games deep in the tourney. I want to believe it’s possible, but I can’t.

                      I think you are correct, but this team has clearly shown they can play with anyone in the country. Maybe "lose and you are done" will focus them?

                      They have no fire in their belly, no anger. They'll probably agree with Seth Davis instead of getting pissed off about it.

                        So...we're likely going to be the vogue pick to lose each game, Cheese hasn't yet made any NCAA all-region/tournament teams this year, Allen seems to be waking up a bit, and without knowing who we're playing next Coach White can't over-think the matchups/gameplans.

                        I kind of like our chances for a Sweet 16 berth.
