    Late season collapse? This has been going on since the Duke loss at the beginning of the season.

      Bracket Matrix currently has Florida as a 9 spot. Can't afford anymore losses.

          Let me say it outright in plain American English - we don't deserve to go, and I hope we don't. White MUST go, but we should stay home.

          I think our chances are slim to none, but I don't blame coach. After all last year he got us way further than we expected so it can't just be him. No firing according to me.

          Yes and no, keep in mind that in that game against Wisconsin UF squandered a 12 point lead with 5:24 left. That gets lost in Chiozza game winning OT shot.

          Keep in mind that in White's first year UF collapsed down the stretch to give the committee an opportunity to cheat UF out of a bid.

          So this years problems were there if UF's fans had their eyes open. I did, but was hoping to see evidence that the problems were being corrected. Alas the issues are still there whether UF makes the tourney or not.

            I don't see us winning anymore games so we are out of the tourney...White already preparing to get to Ole Miss. Right when the Ole Miss job came open is when Cheese starting playing bad cause White had told him he is going to Ole Miss. Book it baby dolls!

            ... where the head coach's talent gets applied.

            Cheese was playing bad long before that.

            Sober up.

            Also, you owe a lot of people who were right apologies.

              I agree and when our previous coach was here we had some of the same issues at times. I don't know the solutions, if I did a job in college basketball would be my future.

              Funny thing is, he's so back and forth that you can't tell if hes serious or sarcastic no matter what he says. At this point boss has been so bipolar that hes turned himself into white noise. No matter what he says, its just ignored.

              Congrats boss, you played yourself.

                So I'll get blamed if Mullen doesn't work out either right?? You same yahoos would have fired Billy D from 01-04 too with his first weekend exits and then fired him again in 07-09 with the NIT years. Same yahoos that wanted Sully fired midway last season too. LOL Haters and Complainers gonna hate and complain...

                You just did it again. We ALL cheer on the Gators, but most at least try to stay grounded in some kind of reality.

                Hell it still wouldn’t bother me one iota if Sully was shown the door. He should have a closet full of trophies.
