    It beats a ripping the skin off your scrotum kind of loss.

      I don’t think I’ve ever watched a more clunky team. Watching this team is painful.

        Florida won 57-51. Lots of positives

        1. We played way better offensively, but couldn't hit a thing. We shot 6-26 for 3pters and almost everyone of them was wide open

        2. We played at a faster tempo until white went full stall balk choke artist again

        3. White realized Stone isn't playing well and he only played him 13 min

        Lots of negatives

        1. Hudson started at PF

        2. White choked the game away playing stall ball up 16 with 5 min left. Telling the players to run clock instead of offense when they broke the press

        3. We suck against a press

        4. Tennessee is next lol

          I'm having a hard time seeing 20 wins, and I tend to be an optimist.

          There are 17 regular season games remaining.

          We have yet to beat a ranked team, so I'm going to assume that we lose to all teams ranked 20 or higher, regardless of where we play them. That's 0-6 against #18 UK(twice), #3 Tenn (twice), #11 Auburn, and #14 Miss St

          We have 6 home games remaining against unranked teams (Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Vandy, Mizzou, UGA, LSU). For the sake of argument, I'm going to optimistically assume that we go 5-1 in these games.

          We have 5 road games against teams not in the top 20 (UGA, #25 TCU, Bama, LSU, Vandy). I'm going be very optimistic and say we go 3-2 in road games.

          Put all of this together and we end up with 8 more wins, and an end of regular season record of 17-14. To get to 20 wins, we'd have to win 3 games in the SEC tournament. If we don't get an opening round bye, we would have to make it to the semifinals (top 4 teams) in the SEC tourney. If we get an opening round bye, we would have to make it to the SEC championship game.

          Sure, it's possible, but even with a lot of optimism, based on what we've seen so far this year, it just doesn't seem likely.

            Basketball really comes down can you do enough to get a bid each year and can you make a run in the tourney every few years. A road win helps UF take a step toward getting a bid.

                Slow down basketball should be illegal, that's why they invented the shot clock.

                  I usually get chastised for pumping and cheering on every win so why not go with the dumpers on this one?

                    ANY road win in conference play is a good win, no matter how ugly or lucky it is.

                      Mike White doesn't see the survive the season? You're either out of your mind, or trolling. He will definitely coach til the end of the season, and most likely next season as well. Florida has made the NCAA Tourney the past two seasons, and finished in the AP top 25 both seasons. He's been snakebitten with his bigs getting injured the past couple of years, but has solid guards now, and good frontcourt prospects coming next year.

                        I think White is safe for this year and next because of his 1st 3 years of pretty good success and 2018 and 2019 recruiting classes. This year's edition really looks dysfunctional, though, and barring some drastic offensive improvement may not win half their games.

                          This team is just no fun to watch, it's Muschamp basketball.

                          Yeah like the guy above me just said.

                            Ball control offense in the second half has either lost or threatened to lose too many games for me to count. White doesn’t seem to learn...

                            Glad we won, but hard to be optimistic for this season.
