alligatorSports Podcast 3-28-11

On a "Werner-NBA" edition of the alligatorSports Podcast, Adam Berry, Greg Luca, Jesse Simonton and Anthony Chiang overcome a crushing technical error to bring you a little Florida basketball coverage following the end of the Gators' season -- a 74-71 overtime loss to Butler in the Elite Eight. The guys originally recorded 40 solid minutes of hard-hitting, highly debated basketball talk, but that file was mysteriously lost in the depths of Adam's MacBook, so they bounced back with a quick recap. The final two segments -- Intro to Sports Journalism and our weekly awards -- stood the test of time, however, and are here in their entirety. We apologize for the error.
