    Sounds like they're telling us fans to enter the Transfer Portal.

      This is embarrassing, but sadly what we’ve come to expect. Stricklin is one of the worst AD hires the school could have made. We would have been better off hiring Phil Fulmer at the position.

      There is ZERO reason to watch anytime soon.

            While I didn't think White would get fired this year, did Stricklin really mentioned patience like Gonzaga had with Few and Baylor had with Drew and then the ole Billy D patience. This argument is so stupid

            Mark Few....is at tiny Gonzaga! He's one of the best coaches in history of college basketball and is at freakin Gonzaga. He also continues to improve himself and his coaching style.

            Scott Drew? Come on....he inherited an absolute mess of a situation and 5 years later he had them competitive again. His teams play good fundamental basketball year in and year out.

            And stop this madness with Mike White and Billy D comparison. I don't know what the heck White is doing, but you could see improvements being made by Billy. I mentioned this before but he made some great assistant coach hires to move the program forward. If not for Shyatt we don't win those championships with the stress on D, while playing good offense. Who has White hired? What the Fuchs has he done. Seriously.

              STARKVILLE MEDIOCRITY.

              Hiring this smiling dork from Starkville was an absolute grave mistake. Fire his ass and make SOS interim AD until we can hire someone competent.

                If you were standing near me, I’d kicked you in the gonads for just posting this filth. I hate you.

                        What is he going to coach for a long time? All the basketball players have left.

                          You all are missing the importance of the dissatisfaction getting loud enough that the UAA wrote an article about graduations and Stricklin thought he had to make this statement.

                          I'm looking for something positive. In June 2017, Striklin said "Both Coach Mac and Coach White have done a phenomenal job of leading our programs and we are looking forward to having them lead the Gators for years to come." The shark fuchser was fired 4 months later.

                              That’s great. Question is, who’s he going to coach? Sounds like a lot of the roster may be bailing in one way or another. I guess there’s always recruits from overseas (even Billy got a guy from Israel or somewhere). Maybe student body tryouts? I really wish Stricklin would share with us exactly what upside he is seeing.

                                      We can only hope so. I'd love to see them leave together.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
