He’d at least have a better “process”.
3 out of last 4 halves have been very well played. Maybe we’re finally starting to see this team come together. While I would love to avenge the UCONN loss, I’d much rather get a shot at Xavier to see if this is all smoke and mirrors against crappy opponents or real progress.
Great 2nd half defense and Blackshear was tremendous. Scottie Lewis had his best game and Glover, Payne and Johnson all had their moments. It could be our first game where assists outnumbered turnovers. Solid win.
Oh God no.
It’s amazing he never turned all this expertise into a P5 coaching position (in any sport, as he’s an expert in them all) or an AD spot. I guess it would probably be harder to do all those things without the benefit of hindsight, though.
Solid concise breakdown.
The boys did good today. You mens happy yet?
That explains why you changed the title to read that the Gators managed "to slip by Miami". Other than a couple of cooler shooting streaks, the Gators put together a solid offensive and defensive performance in a game that more closely resembled team play that a bunch of individuals on the court together. They soundly beat the point spread, had 4 guys in double figures, including 2 freshmen, had season-highs in a lot of categories, and got a lot of points from the bigs. It was trending towards the kind of game fans have been wanting to see from the Gators this year. Good job, Gators! p.s., imnsho, people who don't watch a game shouldn't be the ones to change the game-thread title, at least not until they understand how the game actually played out. Perhaps that would be better left to someone who was invested enough to at least WATCH the game.
Only got to watch the 2nd half, but loved what I saw. Glad to see Lewis getting more involved in the offense, he's going to be a spark plug for us if we don't leave him to rot in the corner of the court on offense all year. Hoping this carries over to Sunday and beyond.
Must have been a good game. Could not watch. Just came on to get score. Dealing with family medical situation. So might be AWOL for a while. Hope for another one next game whoever they play
So our Gators, the #6 preseason team in the country, beat a subpar, unranked team. Do I have this right?
Thoughts are with you regarding the family medical situation. Hope all is well!
You would be correct. I think we are all giddy today because the team actually looked like a team with some potential for the future regardless of the weak opponent. I would really like to see the team that played today get UConn on Sunday to see if this was a fluke or a trend.
I’d rather play Xavier. They are usually a tourney team. So, playing them would be a good measuring stick. If we win, it pads the resume.
Just got back and again, the Gator fans were out in force. Beacuse I was not districted by a flapping bird, got to watch the game closer. Game really was not close. They pulled close at one point when we had gone to the bench and Canes got lots of calls, but you can see this young team coming together and getting to know each other a little better. Blackshear did a great job of not fouling. There were a couple of time you could see him going for a loose ball or a block but pulling back instead of picking up a bad foul. Good to see. Much more cutting and moving around. Nice in game changes also helped when White kept switching who was bring ball up the court. Miami had that little guy who was disruptive on the point so when Miami went man, we switched up. I think Mike White can coach, I just think he elects not to at times and that is not good coaching. Again, Scottie in corner but he moved around more and when he got the ball good things happned. When he drives and shoots it takes two to defend him and thus we got Offensive rebounds and had some putbacks. Again we shot the three well and made FT which was a problem yesterday. But how we got the threes was improtant: ball movement. Defensivly, this is a very good team. We have length and change shots. These preseason tournamnets are great. Met Scott Strickland, Mick Hubert and took photos with team as they were getting on the bus. Everyone is loose and walking around. Now onto Sunday night. Would be nice to win this thing and restart the season so to speak.
While I rag on you frequently, its nothing personal. Hope all is turns out well.
You’re a fairly smart guy with an above average IQ. You know that preseason rankings mean absolutely nothing, especially when 60% of the starters never wore a Gator uniform, and the other 40% are sophomores with 1 season each under their belt. to have expected them to be even close to mid season form was completely unrealistic. If they keep improving like I believe they can, they’ll be back in the top 10 near the beginning of January. In basketball, more than almost any other sport, it’s not how you start, but how you finish.
Sad to hear about the family medical situation. Sending prayers for you and your family.
There was zero excuse for UF to have lost a single game so far this season. ZERO. Mike White is what he is. We all know how this season will end.
