Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan said Monday he feels the Gators have overachieved this year. WHAT!?
Overachieving would have been winning either the SEC Tournament or regular season title. Or making the NCAA Tournament. Or not losing to Georgia. Actually, making the Big Dance wouldn't even have counted as overachieving, that would've been par for the course.
Forward Alex Tyus had the best response: “He feels like we overachieved? Really?"
Probably not really. Perhaps Donovan meant the Orlando Magic, who are currently third in the NBA's Eastern Division.
Anyway, the Gators can keep their magical NIT run alive tonight with a win against Penn State. A berth in the semifinals in NYC is at stake. Here's a good breakdown of how the program performed this season, from the Miami Herald.
UF football coach Urban Meyer is in the bracket spirit. His Web site, coachurbanmeyer.com, currently has a bracket available -- complete with video clips -- for fans to vote on the top moments from the 2006 and 2008 national championship seasons.
No surprise here, "Tebow's Promise" landed a one-seed.
Lastly, check out this feature on incoming UF linebacker Jelani Jenkins. Dude used a computer program to help pick what college he'd attend. He's also a physical freak, karate master, and straight-A student.
