Gator Tales #195: Gator Roundtable (FB, MBK & VB) and MBK’s Kerry Blackshear Jr.

10 years is quite a long time, and the Gators ended their decade of disappointment with a resounding win over the Seminoles, their first home victory in the series since 2009. In doing so, they also took a critical step forward in the development of the program and laid claim to the unofficial title of “state champions.” On today’s show, host Adam Schick welcomes FloridaGators.com senior writers Scott Carter and Chris Harry to discuss the dominant performance (1:45), the legacy of this senior class (5:15), the departure of Felipe Franks (10:13), the latest trials and tribulations for basketball (15:43), volleyball’s path to the NCAA Sweet 16 (22:41) and the craziness of the coaching carousel in the PAT (24:03). Then, grad transfer and Preseason SEC Player of the Year Kerry Blackshear Jr. stops by to discuss the weight of lofty expectations, how basketball is truly in his blood and the impact his childhood travels around the world had on his formative years (29:43).

Gator Tales #194: FSU Preview and WR Van Jefferson

For the first time in seven years, the Gators have a chance to win 10 games in the regular season, and accomplishing that feat would mean their first home win over Florida State in a decade.

Gator Tales #193: Gator Roundtable (FB, MBK & BB) and WR Freddie Swain

While matchups with Missouri have rarely been easy since the Tigers joined the SEC, the Gators used some of their patented second-half magic to leave Columbia with a victory, capping off a 6-2 mark in SEC play. Meanwhile, men’s basketball continued trying to work through some of their early season shooting woes, falling out of the rankings in the process. On today’s show, FloridaGators.com senior writers Scott Carter and Chris Harry join host Adam Schick to discuss football’s solid showing (1:44), Jon Greenard’s dominance (6:44), Florida’s mindset with the SEC title out of play (8:25), basketball’s reliance on youth and the external pressure squeezing Mike White’s team (12:46), Pete Alonso’s Rookie of the Year recognition (21:35) and great team comebacks in the PAT (24:01).

Gator Tales #192: Mizzou Preview, MBK Breakdown and RB Lamical Perine

While the Gators may have been slow to hit the gas against Vanderbilt, once they pressed the pedal to the metal, they didn’t look back in a 56-0 dispatching of the Commodores.

On today’s show, host Adam Schick welcomes FloridaGators.com senior writers Scott Carter and Chris Harry to discuss the domination of the ‘Dores (1:35), “The Swamp” coming to life at Noon (5:48), future dates with the Sun Devils (13:40), basketball’s discombobulated outing against the Seminoles (17:47) and the current chicken sandwich wars in the PAT (25:17). Plus, running back Lamical Perine stops by to share his best memories from each season of his career, how he answered the doubters against Auburn this year and more (29:13).
