    UF got revenge for one of its inexplicable losses last year Saturday beating UTn. Another inexplicable loss that really cost UF last year was losing to UAL at home. Well this team gets a chance for revenge for it at UAL on Tuesday night.

    Both squads are unbeaten early in SEC play. Getting this one would continue UF's nice league start.

    Because I saw a silly Alabama football thread on a Gator board. I wanted to change the subject back to UF where it belongs on Gator boards.

    No problem, but since I had a reason I stated it. Also I really want UF to get this game.

    A nice road win would really be a nice step for us. I think we will live or die by the play, or not, of our front line.
    We need more from the big guys especially some emotion!

    They've got a couple of 6'10" guys. Leading scorer ave = 9.7 ppg. next 9.4, next 7.5.
    There shooting %s are poor. We ought to beat them by 15 or more.

    Agreed. Bammers are geared for D like us, but we have better talent. They have long scoring droughts, something we've avoided lately during our upsurge in offense.

    Sagarin says UF should win by 6 or 7 points. 8 by his new predictor. The line opened UF -6 and has moved towards UAL to UF -5.5.

    The total is 130 suggesting a score of something like UF 68 UAL 62.

    Sagarin had Bama beating Clemson by about 7 so figuring its off that much again we may win by about 17 points.

    The Bammers giving Anthony Grant the boot and replacing him with Avery Johnson? :scratchhead:
    Still trying to figure that out. IMO, Avery belongs in the NBA.

    Tough game on the road. Refs will let them get away with anything and everything. Gotta hope we are making shots. Go Gators!!

    He's getting some talent at Bama (got Sexton at PG for 2017) and it may take a couple of years, but I think they're going to be the best in the West eventually. Quite a lot of well known coaches in the SEC these days with Pearl, Howland and Barnes added to the mix in the past couple of years.

    Waiting for Lee's prediction, but I'll go ahead and make mine.
    Gators - 70
    Losers - 59

    This would be a huge win, but wouldn't kill us if it is a loss since it is on the road. Gators have been playing really well (except for 1st half against TN)... if they can come up with focus and energy I think they win.

    Bama crowd may be still hung over from the loss... may help us. :)

    Gators 72
    Bama 68

    If we can beat Arky on the road and fairly comfortably for the most part, I expect us to beat Bama on the road.

    I was thinking/hoping this whether they won or lost Monday night. The focus there has certainly not been on this game tonight.

    Florida goes on the road tonight to take on Alabama at 9 PM on ESPNU. Alabama is a good defensive team, so hopefully we keep seeing the improvments on offense for us. Also, I hope we see Robinson bounce back with a great game.

    Prediction:

    Florida- 78
    Alabama- 61
    POG- Robinson

    I almost went with DRob as POG, but didn't know his status as he got a little dinged in the 2nd half on Saturday.
    I hope we score 78 - should win easily (as you predicted) if that's the case. D has to come out focused.

    White said he had a great practice Sunday I believe...seemed like that meant he was healthy and had the right mindset again.

    FT hurt us towards the end, but we had enough lead to hold on

    I think we're gonna have to grind this one out. Bama has the ability to turn it into a slow paced defensive battle.
