It beats a ripping the skin off your scrotum kind of loss.
Gator Basketball Best Posts in Thread: Gators beat Arkansas on the road, 57-51
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
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.
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.
