completely apathetic to gator basketball. Honestly doesn't even bother me anymore. MW destroyed this program, and golden isnt the one to bring it back

When you find the real killer of the basketball program, you'll also find the person(s) that destroyed the football program as well.

3 SEC losses all at the buzzer basically. Just a little better offense or make some freaking layups and we are 6-0. Frustrating year

In that loss I still see a team that is playing its ass off for the FNG. Shots aint falling but they are not backing down. AM has talent and quickness we dont have. We dont have that one quick guy that puts pressure on the def. Im driving that last shot with a quick release. Or at least set the "picket fence" for Castle to get a look. Hell, if we just shoot 20% in the first half we win. The coach cannot make the shots, he can only get them to move, pass and get the shot. We had good movement to get some open threes but too many did not go down. I like this team. A bunch of new guys that working hard on the def. end. Btw the refs let TAM put lots of body on our players with few fouls called.

The refs have been atrocious this year. This is why I lost interest in basketball years ago, but I don't remember it being this egregious. Castleton should file a civil suit at this point.

A) We’re more talented
B) We have the “quick guy” you’re referencing - Trey Bonham - he just doesn’t play

With any chance of making the big dance off the table it wouldn't surprise me see this team completely tank. This was yet another winnable game and they still have to face Kansas State, AL, KY twice and TN.

I will agree we have some good talent. But TG just threw most of them together this year and that chemistry doesnt happen over night. Many are traveling mercenaries. Even castle came from somewhere else. I have found I have to invest my time to learn about these guys. Fudge has real talent but finding his place has been hard. He stepped up early in the 2nd half with sort of a "**** this shttt Im gonna make stuff happen" The frosh. kugel is still finding his way. But we really dont have that confident quck guy we need, Kowacee has it but tries to stay within the offense. I think our guys need to realize after a few good passes to get the def.on its heels someone NEEDs to drive to the basket. The league is pretty good this year and the refs let them get physical. Our guys can play that way but we need a bruiser to go with Castle......

KJ is completely killing the Big 12. So frustrating because he really was the best all around player we had in years.

Just when you think they could be turning a corner, they lay an absolute egg. 12 points in the first half? Ridiculous.

No shyt. How do you see that and think "I think that kid could make an impact at my power 5 program".
I knew CMW was done when he brought in MJ to run the point last year. Bad decision. Would rather Kowacie handle the point even with 10 turnovers a game!

We'll be lucky to make the NIT with that remaining schedule. I expect we'll one or two of those just by happenstance.
