      Mike White teams have never been able to shoot well. As long as we continue to employ this garbage coach, talent will come here to waste away.

      Pay Billy $6M+/yr

        Ask them how many national titles they have won. Ask them to name all their final four and elite appearances. I can. But honestly, this is why so many gator fans become so angry in here. THEY cant go rag on their dwag and null neighbors/friends/relatives etc. Instead they catch the shttt themselves. I learned long ago you TALK SHTTTTT after the game or be well versed in the history of the series to shut theirrrr pie holes up.
        You told me you dont follow until March. Unless you can pile on. I said this before the year. We were anointed early on much like those UK teams that are loaded. Anything less than playing like a top five team and missing the final four is failure. And that is immediately. A real quitters mentality here. Oh we knew he sucked two years ago. He cannot coach. His offense is awful. I am actually amazed at how many here are missing these obvious opportunities at huge money coaching a child's game when it is so easy to do.

        Lets compare two coaches and their first 4 yrs at UT
        Donovan 78-49...........2 NCAA appearances FF yr four with two losing seasons
        White 89-53 3 NCAA appearances elite 8 yr two not even close to a losing season.

        Until BD got that real talent. Mike Miller and Dupay and Harvey he didnt kckk ass.
        Now that White has it one game and its over............

          Don’t say stupid things. Admin should not spend any more money than they have to on non-football sports. That’s way too much for a barely revenue sport.

            Dude I love you as a poster but you can not compare the first 4 years of Donovan and White. Billy inherited COMPLETE GARBAGE when he got here, with basically no bball history other than 1 final four. Mike White inherited a top 10 basketball program.

            I'm not saying fire him but I was certainly immediately questioning that extension we just gave him. And now I'm questioning it even more.

              Painful game to watch. We suck. White Sucks. We should quit now. Stop watching. Players are boring and way way way overrated. I'll skip the rest of the season to avoid feeling so ashamed as today.

              Seriously though, that was harsh. Hype should die down a bit and now we can get to work. See all them doubters in March. But go ahead and reserve www.fireMikeWhite.com just in case.

              I recommend quitting. I mean what is the point? Gator Chatter experts have all figured out that MW sucks and therefore this season or any future seasons Under MW will be not worth our time. I say we fire him now and get it over with, get a jump on bringing back Billy D.

                Billy D inherited a mess. Martha White inherited a Rolls Royce by comparison and he's already turned it into a K-Car. White sucks, period.

                    The national evaluators had us at #6. I don't think FSU was highly ranked? And those "rah-rah" experts were not attributing any of that #6 to the excellent coaching.The raters were saying : "Any coach with these talented players can't miss being in the Top-10." Now guess where those boys will rank next month? And that is raters taking in UF's coach worth. I think White lacks faith that he is a good basketball coach.?? Sure wish White could inspire me to have confidence in him.

                    { Never, never schedule our rivals at the beginning of the season. Just refuse to let that happen until after 12 games.??}
                    I'm being "Chicken Littlish" after one loss..... but damn, FSU & Leonard Hamilton !

                      2 games in and we already give up on the team and coach. LOL. Let's see if this team shoots 28 percent for the game in EVERY game since "Mike White's teams NEVER shoot well" right? We will see how the season shakes out. Still another 30 games to go or so. Patience or I guess just not watch the games or watch them with blood pressure medicine nearby. Next game is on Thursday so we will see if this team and the coaches NUT UP and get this thing going. I don't think anyone had this team going undefeated so there are certainly more losses to come. Its how will this team gel and grow and develop as the season ebbs and flows.

                        It's not 2 games, it's 144 at this point, every year there is talent but it's the same ole slow down, punt on 3rd down type of basketball, any time the team starts to run and score he pulls the air brakes because slow down wind the shot clock down basketball is better for defense.

                        I'm sure the team will win 20 and reach the tournament only to be run out on the 1st weekend, which sucks because the talent is there to win it all.

                          PE and Sam are the exact same poster. In fact, the IP is the same.....shocker!

                          One embarrassing pumper wasn’t enough?

                          Fellas, they got their ribbons in the locker room. White determined the effort was there. They also did the thing where they put their hands together and yelled "1-2-3 FUN!" White reminded them not to look at scoreboards, they do not matter. In practice, the scoreboards are always off.

                          All is well.

                              I will give you that the perception of UF being a top ten program was there but it was not a good team situation he got from Billy when he got here.
                              He actually inherited a shttt show from Billy in 15. They had a losing record that year, Billy inherited a Lon Kruger team and Lon was a damned good coach that could NOT get the big recruit. Even after his final four run they went to the blue blood programs. Vince Carter I think convinced Lon it was hopeless here. Lon had a losing record his last year at UF but only 2 season from his FF run.
                              I love the K car reference. But you are wrong. And I see you are now traveling the :law: road of cute derogatory names for UF coaches. I expect player names in the same vein soon.
                              If lies were flies this place would resemble the air around a chicken house. Doug can tell you about chicken houses in the country. Supporting our team at this time is embarrassing? I will take that moniker and wear it proudly. Go gators. Basketball season is a process. Just keep improving and be ready for March. Just hoping we dont have quitters and whiners on the team like we do here............:chomp:

                                PE, I just want you to go on record for what is an acceptable season and what is not. Is it just making the tournament? Sweet 16?

                                Or is missing the tournament and flying high into the NIT going to be okay?

                                Set some parameters so we know where you're coming from.

                                EVERY SINGLE PERSON on this board "supports the team", so quit playing that card. Losing to FSU six years in a row is unacceptable and you KNOW it.

                                  You work for the dept of education so the fact that you don't know a shyt show when you see one isn't all that surprising. But don't expect the rest of us to put on blinders to this dumpster fire. The "process" is failing miserably and most of us can see it.

                                    This team will win the Butch Jones Championship of Life Award. That's something, right?

                                      Dude the last couple of lon kruger teams couldn't even sniff the NIT. THOSE TEAMS HAD NO TALENT. White had a bunch of 4 star and some 5 star players on the Roster in his first year and 2 players who made it in the NBA.

                                      Donovan inherited a Roster with 0 players that made an NBA roster. I went to every home game in those last 2 Lon Kruger years. I don't think you realize how miserable it was.

                                        No leadership, no organization.

                                        I'm not sure why someone said White's teams can't shoot. He's recruited top talent, and they are top talent because they could in fact shoot. White's offense, however, either isn't being executed and isn't worth a damn. Either way, it's been like this since he's been here. So why should we expect a change.

                                          This! And it’s not like fsu has been some powerhouse over that stretch. We’re not talking about Duke or Kentucky. We’re talking about a team coached by overrated choker Leonard Hamilton for crying out loud. Totally unacceptable. And it’s been ugly, boring basketball on our part, to boot.
