NCAA Basketball: Missouri at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The offseason for college basketball is long, sometimes too long. But we are getting closer, and what better time than mid-September to welcome Florida Gators analyst and GatorCountry.com basketball expert Eric Fawcett to the podcast?

Eric has been covering Florida for years and has an innate understanding of their team and Mike White, and he’s also very in touch with Gator fan expectations. The Gators are considered to be one of the top teams in the league this year, so we take a look into why the expectations are so high in Gainesville and what would be considered a successful or a disappointing season.
