How far we’ve fallen. Once proud program now getting shellacked by UCF at home to secure the 2nd losing season in 30 years
Can Fudge transfer again?
Kugel is a 1st round pick now as a freshman lol . Aleks is looking decent, and Aberdeen is much better. The ones that don't look better are the ones that suck from White or are 23+ years old
Does it even matter? NOTHING changes. We've become an overall athletic program that accepts mediocrity instead of being great. We were once a dominant and proud athletic program as a whole. But now we're more focused on diversity and wokeness and #MeToo and blah blah blah. I'm sorry, but I see no light. The long foreseeable future is a never-ending dark tunnel.
Losing by 20 at home to ucf in the first round of the nit is a terrible look. I don't care what was handed to Golden or if he lost his best player. This was a blackeye on his resume
That's beyond dumb. Should say "beating bad gator teams and getting blown out by good ones." UCF will never win a championship in any major sport, all they will ever have are wins over power 5 schools when they are down.
I concur with your anal-ysisI just watched the first half, and with or without Castleton, there was nothing that I saw that tells me that UF is well coached in anything. I don;t need ANAL-itics to tell me that passes are lazy or at poor angles, spacing is poor, #3 should be defending, rebounding and garbage, not jacking 3's, and there is way too much dribbling. And to here Mark Wise talk about UCF having movement off the ball, that is something that UF still has none of. Way too much standing and watching. And I said it almost a month ago that it is wasting time playing either of those 5's. They give you nothing or either end and are detrimental. Go "small", 5 out and instill movement. But clearly Golden Shower has no ANAL-itics for that. These coaches can only do one thing and if something interrupts their plans they just shyt the bed.
Not about being prepared. 80% of the team has already transferred or doesn't care and they are playing like it
I didn't know we went to the NIT. Why?
Went back to the first page; because if Lee's post is true (and I think we can all know it to be), then 46's question bears repeating.
That wasn't Gator Basketball.
It was an embarrassment top to bottom, in both halves. The players were disinterested & played without heart or personal pride.
It's a tournament elimination game at home in an official NCAA Competition.
Where is their pride? Their competitive spirit?
Don't they want even the chance to try and win it? Or failing in that, to at least make it to the semifinals? It's not like it's the greatest tournament to win, but it would still be a banner in the building and something to take personal and professional pride in.
And instead, they show up playing like that.
Lowest point total of the season; no spirited comeback attempt like they've had all year; and we were playing freaking UCF, not Bama or Kansas.
Good riddance to the 80% of the players who are leaving (and most should) if that's the effort they're going to put in at home in a tournament competition. I normally don't like to trash the players, but that was a disgusting performance and yes, going to say it: they played without pride or effort. They should all be embarrassed.
If it was up to Scotty, he would have held onto Mike White for another 10 seasons.But we still have a “State of the art arena” and “Hall of Fame Coach” prices for season tickets and the same two clowns running the athletics department so all is well from their view.
When the boosters/fools that are still buying season tickets wake-up something might change. Until then why would Scottie be concerned? He makes lots of money and nobody that matters complains so……
We're 100% fuched. We have no players worth a damn at all coming back. Goldie is a bust right out the gate. The only question is how long before we jettison the dude.
At least you're still watching. Mike White killed my interest in Gator basketball and I watched about 15 minutes of them play this season. I'm not "proud" of it, just making a point that fan apathy is the worst thing that can happen to a team, far worse than fan frustration.I’ve held my comments about what I’ve been seeing on the floor all season. Last night I reached my limit. Yes, I know losing our best player hurts. Yes, I know he’s “building”. But what I saw last night, on our home court no less, was hot garbage. I had to turn it off no even halfway through the second half to keep from bursting a vein in my head from the frustration.
