Game Faces: Florida Gator Edition

Ever look at the screen while watching a college basketball game and wonder to yourself, “What the heck is that idiot from Jersey Shore doing out there looking all pale and stuff? Oh wait, it’s just Steven Pearl.” Me too. Florida provides us with a star-studded lineup, and not because they are good at basketball. Let’s take a look at which Gators should enter into a look-a-like contest:

Vernon Macklin does a pretty good Al Horford impression, and that scares me. The form and overall success of his hook shot and touch around the rim are very reminiscent of the 2-time NCAA champion and current Atlanta Hawk.

Erving Walker is short and can shoot well. Gary Coleman(RIP) was short and could shoot his imaginary gun into the sky well. Both guys were good with their pointer fingers. Here’s looking at you, kid.

Scottie Wilbekin squared off against Shelby Valley and Elisha Justice last year in Florida, and I was lucky enough to be in attendance. Wilbekin got the win and looked like a solid, disciplined player. Nonetheless, he looks like Drake with a lot more recessive genes.

Erik Murphy shares a name and likeness with Eric Murphy/Kevin Connolly. Yes, as a scientific fact, both are soulless due to their gingerness. Condolences to both families.

Alex Tyus, as we all know by now, shaved off his hair in an attempt to hide his ridiculous hairline, making himself forever irrelevant. Let us commemorate his legacy by remembering the days of ‘The Predator’.

Kenny Boynton is a volume-shooter, also known as a black hole. After begging for the ball and clapping his hands over and over, someone will pass to him and then he will let it fly. Again. And again. And again. Look for him to go 1-12 on three point shots today [crosses fingers Kevin Bacon style].

Chandler Parsons may or may not be a woman. Recently, a twitter follower suggested that Parsons looks like a lesbian. I thought Chandler needed a bit more flannel to fit the bill. Blanche Devereaux, a fellow Florida resident, provided this comedy gold.

    Honestly, I am pretty worried about this game. The Cats are going to get annihilated in the paint.

    I thought Chandler Parsons was a chick too until he got a towel shot to the nuts.

    I like lesbians!! I predict the CATS win by 12. This is where they kick it in this season.

    We need a win bad tonight. Don’t really care if it’s by 1 or 15 points. We lose this game and we are in trouble in the East.

    If we have the mentality to “gang rebound” we may pull this one out by a few points I hope.

    I just wanted to share my thoughts on this years team. I have really enjoyed this season so far. The freshman have, again, been so fun to watch, yet I find myself longing for a more mature team with solid guard leadership. After seeing today’s day game video, I was kinda shocked when I realized Billy D has been coaching in the SEC longer than anyone else. It actually made me feel a great deal of respect for him. I like Calipari’s work ethic and he really seems to have a passion for his job… this guy is a premier salesman. For UK B-ball, we have much to be thankful for.

    Do you guys think these freshmen will stay another year?

    This crap is so stupid and immature….makes KSR writers look like a bunch of pathetic nerds.

    Not to mention, every time they do this, UK loses…then they have to post the obligatory “Let’s talk about this loss, and help each other cope” post-game BS.

    Not sure you understand how a blog works. These are posted like every game, and of course there is a post game post! Win or lose… there will be a post about it, because, this, is, a, blog about KY sports brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.
