On another season-ending edition of the alligatorSports Podcast, Adam Berry, Mike McCall and Kyle Maistri discuss the UF baseball team's elimination from Super Regionals, look back on an unexpectedly successful season and speculate about the future of the program. We then look back and survey the state of UF athletics, especially the state of Gators fans and how the smaller sports are regarded in Gainesville. Finally, we make our Gator Guarantees and give out our Reggie Nelson Awards for Excellence in the Field of Sport and Kyle Jackson Bad Angles of the Week, which evolves into a somewhat disheartening talk about the corrupt, businesslike nature of sports.
