I am a Gator fun but Donovan and Gator nation lucked out with the likes of Joakim Noah and Al horford helping win back to back national titles.

Donovan can not keep talent stock piled like the Duke and UNC's of the NCAA.

Will florida ever be a SOMEBODY again?

Dnovan can not hold onto players and out recruit other big time basketball schools!

Gators fan were spoiled during that amazing run......we should just be excited to make the BIG DANCE and possibly past the Second Round!

Brandon Beal. I know he is not on campus yet. But he is a big time recruit. Patric Young was another big recruit, listed as the 9th best NBA draft prospect.

Donovan has failed to capture the lightning in a bottle after back to back national titles. I give Florida another 5-10 years before we are a constant force in the Top10

The first half was great, second half not so much. All of the bench besides Murphy are freshman. They will get better as the year goes on. UF is so young, Wilbekin could be a HS senior this year. Instead he is brought in as a defensive sub against Ohio State.

Billy D is still a great coach and will have a great squad by the SEC season. There are a lot of tests before then with Kansas State, Xavier, and FSU.

Come on UF is lucky to have him as coach, TOSU is just a better team this year. UF will win its share and make it into the tourny

We are lucky to have Billy but the MAgic has worn off................We will win alot of games and contend for it all....lots of test coming up! Should be an exciting season! we could go 5-25 and I will still be a GATOR fan!

We will go 24-6 this year at worst!

What is your definition of a "Somebody"? Florida is def. a "Somebody" this season. Morehead St. gave them a great game but they are certainly contenders in the SEC East this year. Chandler Parsons is a great Forward and provides good SR. leadership for a relatively young Gator squad.

with the football team doing so bad this year this is the time for the basketball team to take all their minds off it and gain a few more fans!

UF did beat FSU for the first time @FSU since 2002

Gators just lost to UCF....guess I spoke to soon about them being good...suck b@lls!

January 5, 2011  12:47 PM ET

Gosh we still suck! unless we win the SEC we do not belong in the tournament!
