I hate Jen Sterger. Pretend like she’s not there. Or at least her face.
It’s here. We’ve waited a week for a chance that the losing streak would end. We’ve waited even longer for this date with the Gators, which most of us circled on our calendars a few weeks ago. The question now is which team will show up in the white uniforms tonight? Will it be the team that looked mature and like they were heading in the right direction after a fast start in the SEC? Or, will we see the team that suddenly looked worn down on the defensive end and wasn’t able to close out opponents late in the game? We’ll get our answers soon enough, but let’s hope that seven days without a game has given Billy and the boys a chance to get things back on track because an agressive Florida team is coming into Rupp looking to push the pedal to the floor.
I’m going to hope for the best and assume we’re going to see a fired-up team tonight that sets hard screens, attacks the glass, gets after it on defense and even knocks down a few jumpers when given the chance. And, I’m not going to doubt you either, Rupp Arena crowd. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you’ll be rocking too on a late Tuesday night.
Blind optimism? Maybe. But, I need a little bit of this in my life right now….
