Mizzou will hang in there. their basketball is much better than football
Ironically I think Florida is getting too much attention now while we didn't get the attention we deserved last year.
The success of this season hinges on the progress Patric Young has made. If his skillset has come closer to matching his immense talent, then we'll be in the picture for that Final Four berth everyone thinks we're capable of this year. If not, we'll disappoint people.
Mizzou my team going to give Kentucky a run for there money in the SEC this year fellas. I still have Kentucky winning the SEC but not far behind will be Mizzou and Florida. I am exciting for a new conference in basketball and to get away from trolling KU fans who are obsessed with us. Go Tigers!!

I think it's going to be a long year for my Gators. We beat DII Nebraska-Kearney by 30 points in an exhibition game last night, but we outrebounded them just 32-29. Bradley Beal was by far our best rebounder last year and we don't have that kind of support from the perimeter in his place this season. Granted that's just one game but rebounding has been pretty much everyone's main concern for this team preseason and that was far from reassuring.
Noel will not be All-SEC. He is a force physically, but has zero offensive game. Defensively he's a freak and I wouldn't want to see him on the court with Cauley-Stein EVER, but he's not All-SEC material.
Well after seeing my Tigers only up by 6 at the half at home against SIUE Saturday and still only winning 84-69 i'm thinking maybe it will take a few games together for all the transfers to mesh a bit. Shooting was awful in the first half maybe nerves who knows. Having Dixon still being suspended I could tell this team is just a little bit different without him. Tonight should be a snoozer against Alcorn State in the beginning of the Battle For Atlantis Tournament.
Duke vs Kentucky tonight
not a fan of duke, but i am so happy they beat kentucky
Tennessee should be pretty good this year cause they didnt lose anyone. Will have great inside presence too.
That being said, I really dont know cause i cant focus on CBB til CFB is over... even despite our crummy team.
Surprisingly Okie State hammered Tennessee tonight. Auburn is also trailing the College of Charleston in the second half of their game. Seems like one of those years when the Tigers should just give up on sports.
My Gators are proving me wrong early in the season. We've looked like the best team in the conference so far.
gators with limited depth are looking good, but we're so thin down low that any off-shooting night from our guards potentially spells doom for our chances. that said, mike rosario looks like a changed man on the court. he's like jr smith at the collegiate level...
