Did Money jinx Florida?

I am a fan of the Gators. They are fun to watch and they have tremendous talent. But as Money has said all year long, they won’t repeat. I predicted Kansas to cut down the nets a month ago and they have done nothing to change my mind.

UCLA had it’s run of dominance in the 70’s and after that, only Duke in ’91 and ’92 have repeated. Florida, as well as all past National Champs, has had a target on their back. This target appears to have surfaced now, as many teams are laying their claims to make the tournament by beating the Gators.

Florida will be in for a dogfight tonite vs. Tennessee. The Gators are too unpredictable and I have stated in the past, their ability to turn their game on and off is both a blessing and a curse. Bruce Pearl will have his team ready to go and would love to have his all time favorite player, senior Dane Bradshaw, go out a winner in Knoxville. This game is too close for me to call, although I do love a good home dog.

OKLAHOMA STATE -2 vs. Kansas state
The cowboys have not been winning a lot of games recently, but their coach seemed impressed with their effort in the last game against Texas Tech. They play well at home (13-2) and fighting for the tournament lives. A spread like -2, may as well be a pick. OSU wins the game.
