Bold Prediction Of The Night.

ImageVS Image

I don’t think ill be alone on this “bold” prediction of mine but I’m going to say it anyway. Florida Gulf Coast is going to beat the Florida Gators tonight. I’m not just saying it to say it, I actually believe that. I mean, why not? Dunk city has been killing it this tournament and I don’t think they have any plans of ending this historic run tonight. Half of my buddies could have tried out for this team at the beginning of year for open try outs and look where they are now. It doesn’t make sense, but us sport fans love it. Hope I don’t come out of this game looking like an idiot but I’m willing to take that risk.

You don’t want to miss this game! I mean, you probably have nothing else better to do. I know I don’t, I’m sitting here on a friday night blogging about sports. Thats the life for me.

I’m not going to lie, I picked Indiana to win it all in my bracket this year. Did I want to pick them? not exactly. They are certainly not invincible. They played way to close for comfort last week when they only beat Temple by six points, but it was a lot closer than that. They lost to Winsconsin twice this year, who didn’t even make it out of the first round in this years tournament. Don’t get me wrong, I love Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller, but I love the way Sryacuse has been playing in the last two games more. Their offense has been scorching hot and their defense hasn’t been too bad either. Yes they have been inconsistent throughout the season, but they picked a right time to get hot, and who doesn’t want to cheer for a school who has an Orange for their mascot? exactly. Michael Carter-Willams is a much better player than he puts on. He could be a star, but I think he just needs to relax and play his game and let everything else fall into place. You know who else could be a star? James Southerland. Have you seen that guy shoot lately? He’s beyond deadly from the 3 point strike and I expect that to continue tonight. I’m not saying Indiana is going to lose tonight, but I’m certainly not saying they are going to win either.

Enjoy the game guys, It’s going to be a good one.
