    Time to go ahead and start gator baseball preseason buzz? This coming from one of the few gator fans that loves gator basketball as much as football.

      What about our 3 point shooting? I was beginning to pay attention.

      **** this. I'm out. White better not let any of these girls sleep tonight. They need to be running the bleachers until they drop from exhaustion. They sure as heck didn't give the effort on the court. SOFT

      Question: On our basket to tie that was waved off for basket interference, did the Loyola big man touch the net? And if he did and had been observed would It have mattered? That is, does touching the net constitute basket interference?

        Right now this team has a large portion of good individual players, but collectively they have almost no intelligent players. Just not a very smart team right now and were exposed by a good team, who shot well and seems to be coached well. Was not surprised when I heard their HC is a Rick Majerus disciple. Majerus is one of my favorites of all time and was well respected within the ranks. Lots of individual play again and in particular I do not think I saw Hudson make a pass other than to the goal. Someone needs to tell him that it is okay to pass the ball to a teammate on occasion and not shooting everytime is not a crime.

              Everybody lower your expectations. All that hype was pure horsesh@t. These guys are not a well-coached B-Ball team. We are a bad team that cannot be counted on to beat anybody with a pulse. As a solid Gator all my life that hurts to say, but it is what it is.

                  We'll see at the end of the year. No inside presence, no big men, no board control, relying on 3-pointer bombs to win. We just got punked by Loyola Poontang in our own house. Did White go to the McElwain school of coaching? Don't complain about "soft" coach, that is what we are paying you a fortune to make sure we aren't.

                    We are in quite the rut and can’t seem to play well at home as of late. Get a win vs Cincy this weekend and we can right the ship.

                    Way too early to give up on these guys (like we did after our 3rd loss to Vandy last year). It’s a long season, let’s let it play out.

                        You don't get OWNED and DESTROYED by Loyola Freaking Chicago and right the ship with a win vs. Cincy. We've got major problems and a good chance it gets worse.

                          Lol plenty of mid majors beat ranked teams, I see it all the time to teams that end up making a run in the tourney.

                          I do agree that we have some major flaws we need to work out, starting with shot selection and everything on the interior. I trust White to right the ship and will give him the benefit of the doubt at this point.

                            LOL, mid majors win the upset when they are at their home, not on the road. And let's be honest, this isn't just a home loss to a mod major. It's our 2nd home loss in a row. No energy. No defense. No in game coaching, drawing up plays or thought behind a lineup.

                            Something has changed and I don't think we know what it is, but there's something.
