FLORIDA: GREAT OR JUST REALLY GOOD?      

 

       Over the past, Florida basketball has always been overshadowed by the great Florida football program not only by it's fans, but by the nation as well. Be honest, did anyone really ever hear about Florida basketball prior to their first national championship game back in 2000? No. Not even the fans. Billy Donovan has brought them to 3 final fours and 3 national championships since he started back in 1996. He won 2 national championships which everyone knows about, in 2006 and 2007. After winning their 2 national championships back to back and losing all their starters Florida has slid off the radar.

       Is Anyone really going to talk about Florida anymore until they win another national championship or at least make it back to the final four? Probably not. Does anyone out there think the 2006-2007 Florida team should be considered one of the greatest of all time? I do, but something in my mind is telling me that other people don't feel the same way.

        Why shouldn't Florida be considered won of the greatest? They were crushing opponents in the tournament and they won 2 national titles back to back. The 1991-1992 Duke team that did it before them is considered one of the greatest, so why not Florida? Florida is only the 7th team to occomplish that since 1973 and the only one in the past 15 years.

         So what is your oppinion? Do you think Florida is considered one of the greatest teams of all time? Do you think they should be? GO GATORS!
