TWO BITS: Texas A&M preview, Beal’s big night

1 » No. 9/10 Florida Gators basketball is currently in College Station, TX getting ready to take on the Texas A&M Aggies in each team’s third Southeastern Conference game of the season. The Texas A&M athletic department is planning to put on a show Thursday. In addition to having quarterback Johnny Manziel in attendance, the school plans to have his Heisman Trophy on display so fans can take a picture with it before the game. The Aggies’ football team will also be honored at halftime. Additionally, Texas A&M will hand out 9,000 white T-shirts to fans in what is being dubbed a “White Out” at Reed Arena. In a strange twist, Florida announced Thursday afternoon that it will be donning its home white uniforms for the game while the actual home team will be “going with a special dark uniform to commemorate the night.” In other words, the opposite of how one of these white outs is supposed to work.

    Beal getting his footing by now with Wall back. Chance he can be ROY?

    A little off tobic, but any idea what the origin of calling an assist a dime is? Maybe something to do with “brother can you spare a dime” to to assist in the depression?
