    Honestly, we have no business being in the top 25 right now. That loss to UCF was embarrassing. Hopefully the Gators can regroup, make a statement against Kansas State and earn that ranking.

    Long season. Tall order against K State but if they can manage to beat Rhode Island and Xavier heading into conference play, that’s not too bad.

    Yeah I kind of expected this to happen. But I guess that they are fortunate to still be in the USA Today Top 25 poll.
