It's a very thick day here in Gainesville. Humidity has to be in the 90 percent range, but there is no rain, and according to the Weather Channel, that should hold until after 2 p.m. With fingers crossed, the team is warming up and getting ready for this show down.
The team got up this morning for a 7 a.m. breakfast. They were on the bus leaving the hotel at 7:45 and have been doing their warm-ups ever since. The players seem surprisingly awake and alert and all are very excited to get this going.
There is also some good news for fans without ESPN-U (where these games have been bumped to because of the time change). According to the Producer of today's games, Game Two will most likely be run on a tape-delay tonight in our original time (3 p.m. Pacific) on ESPN-2. That is not official, but that is what the onsite crew believes will be happening. Check your local listings (or ESPN 2 today at 3) to see if that holds true.
