Florida Beats Syracuse

Recommended Posts

Florida continued its winning ways by beating Syracuse at MSG last night. Different from when Florida beat us, it was not the recipient of a home crowd.


When Coach Brown predicted Florida could be a Final Four contender in two years, he was not overhyping this team. After losing some of its veteran players last season, I thought Brown might be exaggerating Florida's strength a litle this season. Florida could really be there this season. According to Ken Pomeroy, Florida now has the 2nd highest RPI in the nation.


Now that over half the nation's Division I teams have already played a game this season, it's also interesting to note that UAlbany is now rated 4th in the country. We have moved up three positions from the beginning of the weekend, probably bases on Florida's record.


Now I'm not about to claim that UAlbany deserves even close to such a high RPI rating, but it does tell me that this program has really advanced in just a couple seasons and that we can now contend with many of the country's better mid-major teams.
