Florida Gators: It was a good run

3 posts in this topic

I was impressed by Florida. They really played at a high level. The defense, the 3 point shooting, never backing down from Oden even though he blocked about everything that came at him, the quick hands on loose balls. They were the real deal.

I admire those kids for coming back for another year and trying to play the game the right way. Nothing against Ohio State, they also had a great year and played a pretty sound team game.

Hat's off to Florida. I don't expect to see those kids for a 3 peat. Then they will need a huge rebuilding year and big contributions from unknowns or freshman. I don't expect any of those Gators to make great NBA players. Maybe Brewer as a combo guard defender, like a Doug Christie. Noah and Horford are a little small and need some outside 15 ft range, but they are good passers. They might be better fits on playoff teams (non-lottery teams), like Phoenix or somebody that shares the ball.

I agree with you on both seaons for FL and OSU, however, Brewer is a stud. 6'9" and will play guard in the pros. He reminds me of Pippen. He will have a very successful NBA career. Horford is the next ben wallace, only with scoring potetnial. Noah, may only last a few years. Humphrey could be the next hoiberg. Brewer and Horford will instantly help all teams.

Hmmm, I forgot about Humphrey. That team has usually been touted as having 4 NBA players, and Humphrey is that last one. He can really stroke the 3's. There is always room for somebody to shoot a deadeye 3 in the NBA, especially a guy with his range. He'll probably be a 2nd round pick as deep as this draft is supposed to be, but who knows. Can't create his own shot or defend, but he can shoot.

You may be right about Brewer. Somebody always blows up in the NBA.

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.
