Kentucky at Rupp Preview

The guys preview Florida's trip to Rupp Arena to take on Kentucky Saturday night. Why this is a strange Kentucky team-- and one that doesn't rely mostly on ferocious defense. How the battle of the bigs will impact the basketball game; why Keyontae Johnson is a matchup problem for the Wildcats, and why Ashton Hagans may be a problem for Andrew Nembhard. Plus- why analytics say these teams are very evenly matched- with home floor perhaps being the difference. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Billy Donovan Night; Vandy and Texas A & M wins

Another rocky week: UGA win, Ole Miss flop

Neil W. Blackmon (Saturday Down South) opens the show with a discussion of the program, the coaching job this staff has done this year, and hot seats. Eric Fawcett (Gator Country) joins him and offers his perspective on the same. (Minutes 1-20). Then, a discussion on the Georgia game- a tale of two very odd halves- but one perfect for "team weird." (Minutes 20-35). Plus, a coaches corner on how this team should approach defense with a kitchen sink mentality to close the season. (Minutes 35-40). The Ole Miss loss- and why the offense was miserable and the effort was poor. (Minutes 35-45). Finally, a Texas A & M preview. Is this midweek game in Texas the Alamo for this team? Why body language and focus matter- and why this week has to be one that features two wins. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Florida drops close one at LSU; No. 1 Baylor preview

Neil W. Blackmon (Saturday down South) and Eric Fawcett (Gator Country dot com) discuss Florida's narrow two point defeat Tuesday night in Baton Rouge. How Florida did enough on offense to win- but got lost defending LSU's guards and high slot ball screens. Plus, why offensive rebounding isn't mostly about "Effort" or "Trying hard" and really is often about spacing and sometimes- perimeter and help defense. We'll also break down the adjustments Florida made to come back, and talk referees and free throw imbalance because Mike Nance is going to Mike Nance. Then (minute 27) we preview the Gators SEC-BIG XII challenge contest Saturday against No. 1 Baylor. We will discuss: - Why Scott Drew's Bears team is so good - The curious change in defense from the 1-1-3 to more man - Is Baylor's backcourt the best in America - Davion MItchell's defense vs. Andrew Nembhard - And how Florida can defend Baylor's pick and rolls.

Breaking down the Missouri debacle; Ole Miss preview

Neil W. Blackmon (Saturday down South) and Eric Fawcett (Gator Country) break down Florida's lopsided loss at Missouri. What happened? Was this about investment and effort?

Plus, a coaches corner specifically on how Florida could fix its pick and roll defense. Next, the boys preview the Ole Miss game, a must win for Florida against a basketball team that, on video, is better than its record. Finally, we let listeners vent-- and reacted to some of the Twitter takes following Florida's loss. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
