Kevin Brockaway wrote an article the other day -- and mentioned it again in today's MSU write-up -- talking about bold predictions. it annoyed the living **** out of me.

he compared the following statement to pulling a Joe Namath:


"I'm looking at it like we're going to make the tournament and I think that we will. I think we will definitely make the tournament....I think we can do it," Calathes said. "That's just my opinion. I definitely think we can get it done."

i thought it was a ridiculous comparison when he wrote it, and still think it was. how is that in any way, shape or form a "guarantee?"

sorry...i'll get off my soapbox, but just wanted to see if anyone else noticed that.

It isn't ... he's just stating his opinion that he THINKS they will. I don't agree with Calathas but I admire his passion. I wish the other guys felt the same way. :(

To start with, they need to leave those boys alone, everybody that plays NCAA basketball has to believe they can make it to the tourney, and play for a championship. It's what drives them.

Otherwise why bother giving it your all?

I think these slippery media types, should be shown the door forever, when they pull stunts like this.

The Gainesville Sun is not known for good journalism.

I missed that one, as I don't read the Gainesville Sun or gator fan.com.
