Dan Werner, SHOOT OR PASS; Chandler Parsons, GET'N FANCY

GAINESVILLE -- The University of Florida men's basketball team has two games left in the regular season against the two best teams in the Southeastern Conference.

A win against either Vanderbilt (7 p.m. Tuesday) or Kentucky (noon Sunday) would strengthen the Gators' NCAA Tournament resume. A win against both would help the Gators' seeding. A loss against both would leave Florida 0-3 to finish the season and 5-5 in its last 10 games. UF went 3-7 in 2008 and missed the tournament. UF went 4-6 in 2009 ... and missed the tournament. Seems like finishing flat is frowned upon.

Of course, knocking off Kentucky in Lexington on the final day of the regular season seems unlikely for the Gators. That means one thing: UF need to upset Vanderbilt at the O'Connell Center on Tuesday. Dan Werner's NCAA Tournament hopes might depend on it.

ABOUT THE LOSS TO GEORGIA...

I'm not into bashing college athletes, especially dudes as seemingly generous as Werner, so that's not going to happen here. Should Dan Werner have taken the shot at the end of the game against Georgia or passed it? Considering the situation, a shot certainly seemed like an option.

Werner passed it, a Georgia defender made a nice play and the Gators lost. Time ran out. Georgia 78, Florida 76. Maybe that was the play UF coach Billy Donovan drew up, for Werner to pass. Either way, the ball was in the hands of the only senior on the team with the game on the line. That's usually a good thing.

The loss to Georgia, the worst team in the SEC East, makes Tuesday's game against Vandy all the more important. Vanderbilt manhandled UF earlier this season in Nashville and, considering Tennessee's victory against Kentucky over the weekend, the Gators could use a quality win. Of the four teams in the SEC East with a chance to make the NCAA Tournament, Florida seems like the team on the bubble.

Tennessee is currently ranked 14 in the RPI, according to RealTimeRPI.com. Florida is 46.

Just when things were looking good we lose to Georgia.... Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Jo - It seems like whenever we wear the black unis we choke. Beside the fact that they are hideous, they are bad luck. We need to burn those things - quick!!!

We will beat Vandy at home. Playing on the road at Vandy is a disadvantage to everyone and the big guy Ogilvy has been pressing his luck - Billy needs to coach up the refs so they T up that dude when he takes cheap shots.

Go Gators!

It was too cold, we are young, we are hurt, we didn't have enough SWAGGER - ooops wrong blog.

Go canes!

I see your back at the SS trying to get someone to take the bait. At my count you troll at least 5 Cane blogs. The Canes control your life and I can see why.

26 > 25 HTH

5 > 3 Ships

3 > 0 Undefeated

One win in 24 years against UM.

38.5 in vertical for Tim. Beats Vicks 38. Unbelievable. No to mention a 4.72 40.

FIRST ROUND

LMFAO, First round? Are you serious? The GM that is dumb enough to draft Tebow in the first round will be looking for a new job in two years because he will get FIRED!

In your head -- hate to interrupt your date with the sweatsock but the canes will give up football for financial reasons within the next few years. This is a crisis that no one is talking about that deserves some serious investigation. Why isn't the mainstream media picking up on this?

Dude, You need to get Urbans doctor on the horn and quick. Take a couple PROZAC and hit me back later.

Werner should have shot the ball. he's been passing up shots all season. He has no confidence in his shot.

The Canes will drop football in the next few years and tebow will be a first round draft pick.

The Canes already have dropped football. What is next?

LOL -- I heard that rumor too. Doubt it's true, however, there is a lot of pressure on Randy Shannon to perform. For the price UM is paying for him, they are getting a bargain (really!). UM can't pay destination salaries to coaches anymore, ala Alabama, USC, LSU, etc. If Randy doesn't work out, UM will have to rely on up-and-comer coaches and simply be a "stepping-stone" program for the really good ones.

Miami has always been A stepping stone program for coaches. Snelly, Jimmy, Dennis, and Butch all left for the pro's,"The exception being Coker of course". Miami has never hired A proven, top head coach and they have been succesful doing it.

UM is a stepping stone program? That wasn't in 30/30 -- dude you are way off script!

felony U;
*where ur QB has 2 go 2 QB school 2 learn how 2 throw after 4 years at felony U.
*where ur TE has 2 go 2 blockin school 2 learn how 2 block after 4 years at felony U.
*where ur more likely 2 get arrested than drafted ( 30 arrested 2 20 drafted in the last 5 years) at felony U.
*where your head coach is in rehab (opps, I mean on vacation) after 5 years at felony U.
*

Hey cane tards. U got JUNK in the NBA. We have STUDS all over the league.

U PLAY IN A BASKETBALL CONFERENCE

Donna hates football. Welcome to your new reality in the world of sukkk

I feel bad for Werner, he takes alot of sh** from fans/critics. He's made his mistakes though. Our team just isn't consistent this year. Next season is looking better though... Parsons will be a star. That was a hell of an oop against uga. He's improved dramatically this season

FELONY U; where your football players go to the alachua county jail(30), waffle houses, machine gun school, keggers, trailers, Philippines, QB school, blockin school, and of course the 'university club', anywhere but the NFL.
and your coach goes into rehab (opps i mean vacation).
signed by Jeremy Shockey, Jonathan Vilma, Reggie Wayne, Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, Clinton Portis, Brandon Merriweather, Antrel Rolle, Vince Wilfork, Jon Beason, Devin Hester, Willis Mcgahee, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed,
(all ex-HURRICANES, all NFL all-pros).

went to the players in the pro bowl and I couldn't find ONE GAtor.

WHY IS THAT??????

Nice try "D" bag!

The canes had that many pro bowlers, no way! Now with Jimmy Graham, Sharpton, and Fox all going in the first round - we will have more probowlers! We own the NFL, ACC not so much.

Go 'canes!

PS Its Taco Tuesday, mom is seasoning the meat right now!

Man Marshall Faulk and Rich are tearing UF and Urban up.

Saying over and over how they failed Tehoe. Saying that UF got more out of him then he got out of UF. Saying that recruits should take note that a guy can come in there for 4 years and not be developed for the next level.

Marshall Faulk even went as far as to ask Mayock to name a QB that Urban has developed and that is balling in the NFL. To be honest that is just a UF tradition though....lol...regardless of coach.

CAN ANY OF YOU GATOR LOVERS. NAME AT LEAST 5-10 FLORIDA PLAYERS THAT HAVE DONE ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT IN THE NFL?

Worst coach in the ACC
pathetic depth chart
Historical blowout losses
No player development
sad fanbase
overrated frail QB
coaching carousel
got SCHOOLED in recruiting by Urban
ACC doormats
everyone laughs at U

HATERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I WILL ALWAYS POST FACTS NO NAME CALLING. WHILE YOU GATOR CONSTANTLY GET EMOTIONAL...
IT'S FUNNY HOW SO MUCH OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI SUCCESS BRINGS YALL PAIN... MAYBE SOMEDAY IN THE FAR AWAY FUTURE SCHOOLS WILL LOOK AT FLORIDA AND SAY THATS HOW WE WANNA BE.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI IS TREND SETTERS.

THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA IS A WANNABE.

JUST FACTS: THE "U" INVENTED SWAG.

GA Boy -- A Georgia Bulldog ragging on the Gators? Now that's funny! I will never forget the Fl/Ga game two years ago, specifically, walking out of the stadium after that butt-whooping and seeing a sea of UGA fans with their "Tim-Teabag" t-shirts on -- all those sad faces, young, old and every age in-between wearing those t-shirts! Priceless!

All kidding aside GA BOY -- explain to the cane posters here what a real rivalry is, they are blinded by their irrelevance and persecution syndrome and think we (UM and UF) are rivals. Georgia, Auburn, and LSU are the time-tested rivals of the Gators.

Our new rival is UNC and they own us now but we should be able to win this year with out 12th man - the sold out Land Life Bowl!

Go 'canes!

Posted by: Walkin' the dawg | March 02, 2010 at 10:25 AM

Of course the gators dont consider the Canes A rival. How can we be A rival of yours when you have won 1 game in 24 years against the Canes.

Why go to UF Reply

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Joe Haden just ran a 4.6 40 yard dash!!! UF had been saying that he was 4.2-4.3 guy and he is not even close. Joe is losing tons of money today. This is what happens every year at UF.

Historical blow out loss

Coaching carousel

New QB

Urban got schooled in Xs and Os by Saban

No receivers

Scholarship reduction by way of incarceration

Players flop in the NFL

We are the University of Florida.

Posted by: Did You See That | March 02, 2010 at 11:24 AM

Thats hilarious. Jimmy Graham ran A 4.5 and he's 6-6 265.

But lets look at the bright side. Timmy jumped higher than Mike Vick.

Oh yeah...get 'em The []_[]! You are such a blog badass!


Go'canes!

Badass is a little strong, but he did punk you with UM/UF's head to head record "Fakey"!

Got undefeated??

Go 'canes!

Hey Fakey #1,

No more then then way UNC punks da u.

You still doing squats at the Y? Anyways, Bennie Blades and Warren Sapp rip Shannon and you blindly believe. Glory days are gone.

Go 'canes!

How's the meatloaf?

So UNC is a better program than UF "Fakey"? I guess I can see your point.

Go 'canes!

P.S. I prefer the leg press over squats "Fakey". But thanks for asking!

Go 'canes!

Your only as good as your last game.

Go 'badgers!

Hey kehoe (AKA fake Sarasota), At least when A former player says somthing negative about Shannon he takes it like a man. God forbid you criticize Urban Cryer (Shane Mathews). He acts like A little kid and takes his ball and goes home.

Excellent point The []_[. I am tired of this fake.

Go 'tarheels!

Kehoe's still pouting because no one will pay any attention to him at the SS. It's starting to dawn on him that his life is irrelevant again. His mom pays him no attention, the other kids pay him no attention, his own dog pays him no attention so he posts under fake names, answers his post's under fake names thus he has one person to pay attention to him. his self!

One more thing Kehoe, I am on here all day/night and I will defend da U and it's swagger. I still talk smack even though da U has never won the ACC which was the worst conference of the decade. Oh and it's basketball season. What a loser Kehoe is!
