Swearing off sports talk radio until . . .

Postby SavannahGator » Wed Mar 27, 2013 9:54 am

We bury those upstarts from Fort Myers.

So I'm driving to work, and listening to XM 87 Fantasy Sports radio. I've been a member of the same fantasy baseball league for 24 years (virtually same set of guys) and even though we did our draft a week ago, I still listen in to hear ideas on pickups, other callers' strategies, etc.

So the next caller is from "Southwest Florida," and before the host can even get to the guy's question on baseball, you just know what's coming. It's all about Dunk City, baby.

I am so sick and tired of hearing about them. It's f'n everywhere. I'm the poster who put up those quotes from Jo and Al and Chris following our dismantling of George Mason in 2006. I hope our current set of Gators get to say the same things (although they don't seem as outspoken as the "04s" were) late Friday night.

So even though just about all of the educated pundits are picking us, and Nate Silver of the NYT has us with the third best probability of winning the whole enchilada, I'm swearing off ESPN radio and every other sports talk radio until Saturday.

In a "30 seconds of fame" culture, the Eagles are getting a week.

I was going to post this yesterday in the "So we're the villains, huh?" thread which was originally posted March 25 by unofficialgator, but found it locked for some reason. Hays Carlyon is a sportswriter for the Florida Times-Union. Carlyon is usually pretty fair in his reporting and has a little thing he does once a week called Hayes Headlines which is I find pretty humorous. Has Mr. Carlyon been looking to the GSMB experts for help in formulating some of his storylines? I know Bianchi has posted here in the past.

From the article : I do not like that our players are going to "hear it"
like they are the enemy invading FGCU's home-ground. Away-game
atmospheres have deflected our usually strong play so many times.
And many were games that gators should have been up for.

We will have to play through the hostile crowd as well as through
their rah-rah up-tempo go.

Go Gators ! From the start.

Of course, my ignore on sports radio through the game Friday doesn't include GSMB and Gatorsports, and now I see that Urban has some decency after all - according to the article just posted on the front page, he's pulling for his "friend" Billy.

Glad to see that, but of course, if tOSU gets to play us, well, it would be understood if he pulled for his current employer.

No you play music on a instrument. You listen to radio.
But it does suck to hear this crap all week. I just hope we don't let them get inside the paint by themselves like they have recently. The teams they have played didnt have the D Florida has and they were shooting over the arms of the defenders. I don't see us letting that happen. No free shooting on the floor and we win big. I think we wear them down by halfway through the second half. Just like we did Tubbys team.
Go Gators
