  1. Dave says:

    Love to see them play Wed afternoon…but the game is NOT on ESPN or Sunshine…just Cox Cable which thousands of fans DO NOT have. Bummer. Couldn’t watch them play Richmond either.

    • Tractorr says:

      I do believe it is streaming on ESPN 3. Not sure where or if it is blacked out.

    • gatorboi352 says:

      I actually called Cox on Saturday to add that Cox Sports channel (269) to my TV package. Glad to know I’ll get 2 games out of it before I call back to cancel!

  2. Alex says:

    Go Shocks! oh and gators too

  3. Tractorr says:

    I think this is just about where we have proven we should be thus far.

    I really hope that Chris Walker becomes eligible soon, and it seems like total BS that the NCAA won’t even give a date of eligibility.
