Saturday was a rare great day for FSU athletics. The football team won. The basketball team beat the Gators for the 7th straight time. And UF and Miami both went 0-2 in major sports and lost their football games in humiliating fashion.
2020 is almost over folks!
We begin the pod (APPLE // SPOTIFY) by talking all things Gators. We should all wish the best to Keyontae Johnson, who was hospitalized after collapsing during the game. But this is a basketball pod and we also have to talk hoops.
The ‘Noles got off to a rough start, but once they figured out how to attack offensively, the Gators were never able to respond. It also helped that FSU forced 20 turnovers and kept UF off balance for the final 28 minutes of the game. Plus there were a couple of murderous dunks from Scottie Barnes and M.J. Walker.
After the recap, we debut a new segment called 1-and-1. Matt tosses out some questions, and Michael does his best to respond.
Then it’s on to the Georgia Tech game. They finished 5th in the ACC last year, and basically returned their entire team. But early season success has been mixed. Still, they have a few talented players in Moses Wright, Michael DeVoe, and Jose Alvarado who could hurt the Seminoles.
