There’s a reason he only has offers from Stetson and some other small school, and is having to walk on for us

The greatest sign that Gator basketball is on the way back is that we’re arguing about a walk-on. A walk-on…….

I’m so glad we seem to have a good B-ball coach again.

I think Rioux set in front of me at the movies last week, never fails get there early spend 30 bucks on coke and popcorn , pick out the perfect seat then the jolly green fuchen giant comes and sets in right in front of you.
PS wait for Horizon to come out on Netflix , just ok

The point of posting this is Preston's question. Florida Basketball Hour said "Very high." When it comes to Gator basketball, they are connected. But, I always point out that NIL can easily change things.


It's hard to imagine that he'd go anywhere but Florida if we wanted him. I don't know the kid or the family or anything like that. Just that Hawthorne community seems pretty tightly knit when it comes to sports. Don't see him him or any locals from that school wanting to get away. Especially a legacy.

Manute being that light was to his advantage. He was athletic and could move and pivot quickly. I'd plunk a Manute highlight tape in front of Rioux and teach him how to be like Manute. He has potential, and will love to see what Golden and staff will do.

This is a good breakdown

If you are interested, Urban Klavzar played yesterday. He is number 7 for Slovenia. They are the blue team. The kid is quick and he starts. Golden got a good one. He will have a much tougher challenge tomorrow against Lithuania.
