    Good relevant 'sharp' points, DoGat Dag. Let's not forget UF's HC Lon Kruger - been doing well at Oklahoma for 7-8 years. Appreciate it if someone knows why he left UF ?

    And you know this how?? Now perhaps our current players won't or can't execute such plays. I seem to remember several scores from out of bounds in the recent past.

    Here is an article. KRUGER TO LEAVE FOR ILLINOIS JOB

    At that time IL was a better job with better support, today not so much better.

      Bearing no basketball wisdom, I can't help but note that Kruger is of the same physical stature as Donovan & White.

      When you are talking recruiting top guys you don't get to throw in Al Horford. Chris Walker was a top 10 recruit. He did not develop, but we are discussion getting top players. Al Horford was NOT a top 10 recruit. Horford came in better than Walker and developed better too.

      The above does not change where players were rated. Coaches might have known better about Horford than recruiting services, but that does not matter for the point of our discussions of recruits.

      Lee Humphrey was nationally ranked at 107 in the 03 Class. Green was 105, Noah 73, Horford 42, and Brewer 23 so none were top 10 recruits but ALL Finished #1 forever. Back 2 Back, Best ever forever!

        Old News Flash = Chase Johnson has clearance for full contact play. He's 6'9" 220 lbs. What I don't understand is why he could not keep in shape during his non-court recovery ? Low impact elliptical ?
        He is tall and is very co-ordinated with a better shooter's touch. We need him to come thru without getting hurt. Go more Gators.
