    For all the Gator basketball fans in here - looks like season will start 6-8 weeks behind schedule. Very likely will be limited fan attendance.

    I don't mind getting rid of some of those fluff games and even top non-conference games. 6-8 games, with 2-3 against good teams, is enough to prepare for the SEC and establish national results.

    At least it'll be easier to limit COVID spread for 12 bball players vs 85 fball players, so less risk of community spread and games being cancelled.

    Can't wait to see what Mike White has in store for us.

    Name and town if you wish to opine.

        Yep. Like counting down the days to that first prostate exam.

          Good thing is my doc doesn't do them anymore. It's only a visual check as blood/stool tests have advanced to the point where they can detect prostate issues without the finger probing.

                I'm expecting something along these lines.

                  My doctor always has his hands on my shoulders when I am being probed. Still never figured out what "tool" he is using :lmao2: :lmao2:

                    I have some bad news for you. When he tells you he's wiping off some excess lube from your a$$ he's not being completely honest.

                    Now WTF, first game is 5 days away and this thread hasn't had a post in 2 months?

                      WTF?!
                      Have they been practicing? Where's the practice scouting reports? Is our Football success keeping us from realizing it's basketball season?
                      Seriously, I thought the season was cancelled until Spring. This article says Nov. 25, as you stated, la. So I'm super happy to hear that. :sohappy:
                      When does the 2020-21 college basketball season start?
                      When and who do the Gators play first? Here's the starting schedule:
                      11/25 - UMASS-Lowell (that's right, not the real UMASS) :lol:
                      11/27 - #4 UVA
                      12/2 - OK
                      12/6 - Stetson
                      12/12 - #21 Fsucks
                      12/16 - N. Florida
                      12/19 - FAU
                      12/22 - JMU
                      12/30 - SEC schedule kicks off with at Vandy
                      Only other non-conference game is vs. #15 WVU - 1/30

                      I have to admit that basketball season has snuck up on me this year due in part to the success of the football team.

                      Honestly though, CMW has really sapped my enthusiasm during the last 2-3 years.

                      Again this year, we look really good on paper but I am just not that excited at this point. Hopefully I will snap out of it.

                        Same here. CMW has destroyed my enthusiasm for gator basketball.

                          I love gator basketball but I'm not gonna allow myself to get hyped about anything until I see us actually look good. Last year's team had 4-5 future nba players and we barely made the tournament. Covid stopped the tournament so probably saved White an extra year. This is his second to last year if we don't start making some tourney runs IMO.

                            How can the basketball HC White let basketball get zero promotion? Is he ashamed of the team that he's put together? White has always expressed smothered inadequate enthusiasm = "go-get 'em". Earning his salary?

                            Okay you bunch of Debbie downer’s, we’re undefeated and playing in just a few days. This team is loaded with talent. Plenty of time for Mike hate later if he earns it. For now I’m thinking final four.

                              Can’t wait to our Gators play. Looking forward to see how this group comes together.

                                I'm getting in on the hate early. Mike White sucks.

                                Also starting my Black Friday shopping this weekend.

                                  Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
