... and I definitely wouldn't have predicted that pre-season.
Our fellas have played and won three games. They just finished blowing out NC Central, 105-51. None of the teams they've played are even remotely close to top-flight competition, but I'm pretty sure that North Dakota State would have beaten Gardner-Webb without too much difficulty.
For all the world, I didn't expect to see this, but here's what we've got at Florida -- a crew of freshmen and sophomores who play together beautifully, pass the ball with the best of them, and are all great shooters. Seriously, they've looked really good these past two games. Physically they resemble frosh in some respects (Chandler Parsons in particular) but they play like they've got a lot of games under their belt. They're smooth, they don't lag behind the game and they're all very much involved both offensively and defensively.
I wasn't expecting this, but I think right now Florida stands a good chance of sweeping your Billy G squad this year, unless Kentucky makes some wholesale improvements in the near term (which is a distinct possibility.) Have any of you seen Florida play yet? They're good!
