    That’s great. Question is, who’s he going to coach? Sounds like a lot of the roster may be bailing in one way or another. I guess there’s always recruits from overseas (even Billy got a guy from Israel or somewhere). Maybe student body tryouts? I really wish Stricklin would share with us exactly what upside he is seeing.

              Sounds like they're telling us fans to enter the Transfer Portal.

                Good. No need to waste money on a buyout for basketball, it all needs to go towards football.

                Figured I’d say it before Donkey does

                  This is embarrassing, but sadly what we’ve come to expect. Stricklin is one of the worst AD hires the school could have made. We would have been better off hiring Phil Fulmer at the position.

                  There is ZERO reason to watch anytime soon.

                    Was there such dizzying euphoria over hiring Mullen from MSU that made Strickland a shoo-in success? IDK?

                    As long as FUCHS is here...major sports will be secondary.

                    Hey but don't stress...UF is Elite and your kids will get ALMOST IVY jobs with ALMOST IVY pay

                    But then again I've got a Corn Dog MS...literally

                      I think we are overreacting a bit and that white will be gone after next year. I'll get my pitchfork out with the rest of you if he's not. It does piss me off that Stricklin said this though.

                        While I didn't think White would get fired this year, did Stricklin really mentioned patience like Gonzaga had with Few and Baylor had with Drew and then the ole Billy D patience. This argument is so stupid

                        Mark Few....is at tiny Gonzaga! He's one of the best coaches in history of college basketball and is at freakin Gonzaga. He also continues to improve himself and his coaching style.

                        Scott Drew? Come on....he inherited an absolute mess of a situation and 5 years later he had them competitive again. His teams play good fundamental basketball year in and year out.

                        And stop this madness with Mike White and Billy D comparison. I don't know what the heck White is doing, but you could see improvements being made by Billy. I mentioned this before but he made some great assistant coach hires to move the program forward. If not for Shyatt we don't win those championships with the stress on D, while playing good offense. Who has White hired? What the Fuchs has he done. Seriously.

                          Following up the worst FB AD in school history with the worst all-sports AD in school history is quite an accomplishment. A bizarro world slam dunk of sorts?

                            Yes...unfortunately I've long since gone from anger to apathy. I simply don't care anymore as long as that asshat is head coach.
