      Same old same old. Games like this are why I don't get excited this year. The problem is not the players

        I always say road games are tough regardless of the opponent and Mizzou is not a good team. However they had one of those nites where everything went in. That happens, however how many of those 3 point shots were completely uncontested? a whole lot. But even more disconcerting was how many wide open, uncontested layups did we give up? A whole Bunch or about 10 too many. I am not talking about offensive rebound put backs I am talking about straight line drives to the bucket or pick and rolls where we forgot about the roll man. We have played 3 conference games and are 2-1 with 2 road games, which on the surface does not look bad. However we have played 3 teams who are not going to the tourney so it will not get much easier until Vandy and A&M show up. Heck and look at Miss. St. they are 0-3 and better than any of the 3 teams we have played, although Bama did beat them down at Bama.

            Has White been fired yet? Why not? Dammit, Stricklin get off your a$$, do something! This is total bs.

                My feelings as well. I watched a Charles Bronson movie, but would check in during commercials. What I would see was what you guys described...us standing around on offense (shocker) and throwing up bricks, turnovers or standing around leading to lay ups/dunks (one was even a top play on SC this morning), not much energy on D, giving up a lot of uncontested shots. Bad basketball. My old @ss is already struggling to find enjoyment in basketball these days anyway, but what we are being treated to much too often is nonsense. Efforts like yesterday are unwatchable. I'll go back and watch Hoosiers to get my basketball fix from now on. At least Norman Dale's team didn't stand around and get caught watching the paint dry.

                  Watched the first 5 minutes and decided to start season 7 of Ray Donovan instead...my best decision of the day. Can’t imagine I’ll tune in again this season.

                  I remember last season I was on the fire mike white bandwagon and everyone here said we had to keep him because of the recruiting class we had coming in I said it before I’ll say it again...what must be done eventually needs to be done now

                    I’m pretty sick of Mike White in general, but the most aggravating thing is every season we’ll go on a good streak of 3-4 games and then lay an absolute egg, usually against a terrible team. None of his teams can handle success.

                        Haven't watched a game in 3 weeks. Dude should be gone by now but whatever. Empty seats and transfer portal will hopefully get Strickland off his azz or fired as well. Ridiculous. I hear Roy Williams said he'd be okay if UNC fired him. White should follow suit and take responsibility for this dumpster fire.

                            Scot Stricklin will NOT make a move on White no matter how bad it gets
                            He just gave him a raise and an extension and his ego will never allow him to admit the mistake he made. Besides he is not willing to write the check needed.

                            The only way Scottie makes the move is if the big money boys like Don Disney force him to. I am not sure that people like Dizney care about the results as much as sitting courtside so I think we are starting the free fall

                              I’m not sure about that. He fired Butters after giving him an extension.

                              I think the only reason he would keep him around is because he likes him. I don’t think the extension has anything to do with it.

                                Also White is connected, part of the insider elite athletic administration crowd.

                                    Thought he appeared broken/shell shocked for a couple years. Who knows what non-basketball related is going on. Still trying to figure out why a slow ptg based O doesn’t work with bigs and fast players.... I went fishing

                                    I quit watching last month. Its beyond awful basketball. I see more synthesis and complimentary offensive basketball at the local boys club.

                                    Yall let me know when this turd is fired so I can start watching again; until then its pure boycott until he's gone. He's absolutely destroyed our program and our brand. Dude is literally the MacElwain of gator bball.

                                      Stricklin has a decision to make, and as usual he’s the least qualified to make it.

                                          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.
