What a year to be part of Gator Nation! Last night Florida won the NCAA 2007 Men's Basketball National Championship for the second year in a row. What's interesting is that we beat Ohio State, the same team we defeated for the football national championship back in January! Set a few records last night: (1) first team to ever repeat with the same starting 5 players, (2) first team to hold both national championships (football & basketball) in the same season (we already held them at the same time), and (3) the first team to win both national championships by defeating the same school.
Gainesville, Florida baby... aka: Titletown USA!
And now, it's only appropriate as an alumni...
Florida, our Alma Mater, thy glorious name we praise All thy loyal sons and daughters, a joyous song shall raise.
Where palm and pine are blowing, where southern seas as flowing, Shine fourth thy noble gothic walls, they noble vine clad halls!
'Neath the orange and blue victorious, our love shall never fail, There's no other land so glorious, all hail, FLORIDA HAIL!
GO GATORS!!! 2007 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!!

BTW... I think this officially makes the Buckeyes Florida's bitch. Does Ohio State also play baseball? :)
