Smackdown -- Florida v. UCLA
Florida - Where talent matters, not tradition

UCLA - We know how to dance
By Brian HamanoYou'd think that 11 national championships, the greatest coach in the history of basketball and an 88-game win streak would be enough to silence the Bruin haters. But Joakim Noah made it painfully obvious that Florida's program is inferior with his tasteless, embarrassing dance-capades after winning the SEC title. Florida's program (which endured its share of recruiting scandals in the 90's) is a joke when compared with the tradition and history of UCLA. Even after last year's championship, Florida failed to sell out the O'Connell Center for the majority of its home games this year.
