Not really.

Some brackets had UF in as an 8 before today.

I think we're still in.

If we lose the next two (as much as I'd love to believe this team can win in Rupp, I don't), we'll be 17-14. Maybe the bubble is shallow enough this season that it won't matter, but you don't want to put yourself in a position where you'd have an historically bad record for an at-large team and are banking on the bubble being shallow.

Our resume really isn't all that impressive -- we're 3-9 in Q1 games, 8-10 aginst Q1/Q2, and now have two Q3 losses. We're banking on our NET being good and the bubble being historically shallow unless we can get another good win. And our NET will surely take a pretty harsh fall after last night. Our RPI dropped from 50 to 67 -- UGA is really bad. If the committee is checking their work against the RPI this season, that's bad news.

We definitely didn't need this lose. It certainly makes us a bubble team. Hard to understand us beating LSU and then lose to UGA. With that said every team is going to have ups and downs, win some lose some.

I'm still on board with the team. Lets get another win from a Q1 and see where we stand.

Come on bouncy ball team!!

re: I'm done with White
You guys give up on this team too much. It was a tough loss versus UGA, but we had grit versus LSU (should have won) and played well in Rupp, so the run in the SEC tourney isn't all that surprising.

I think we're in now and I think the admin of this board should ban the OP for being an idiot.

re: I'm done with White
He's coached well the last few games O agree. Team is doing....exactly what I said it needed to do. Shocking huh. Moving off the ball. Pushing tempo when needed. Not sitting on the ball for twenty seconds.

Maybe this is a sign White is turning a corner as a coach. I'll happily be wrong and see us win more. Still waiting. After last year and his complete regression of that team through the year, and the stagnant offense this season my concerns aren't resolved. I think he has to bring in new assistants this off-season to help with the offense. His defense has always been good. Have to win on both sides though.


As for Forever. Once again. Go frick yourself. Happy to meet.

re: I'm done with White
This Auburn game was very well coached by White. One of his best coaching jobs this season easily. This game we faced a better team with more depth and he forced a close game by controlling tempo with smart ball movement. Also got fricked by the refs...what bull shite.

Will happily eat crow if he continues this coaching and doesn't regress back to the stagnant offense that has killed us for two straight years

Florida is in the TOURNEY!!

OP is OFFICIALLY an idiot.

and also not a Florida fan.

Claiming he said what to do on offense to fix it when he never did. Just said our offense was bad. No shite Sherlock.

But we've improved as we expected.

frick the OP!

chill out, FG

2008 was wrong here but he's clearly a Gator fan; it's not like he's TJ. I've seen him be positive plenty about other programs and, even if he'll always be known as the Chip Kelly guy on the rant, he has a right to voice his opinions about Gator sports.

Agreed, if we all thought the same thing it would be a boring discussion.

re: I'm done with White
If we all agreed with 2008 and GatorsGators about our basketball program, it would be depressing.

So yeah, you're right.

I just don't think if you dog a program so much and claim the coach should be fired when he's doing great for what he has and what he has coming, then yeah, you're just dumb.

Being critical is one thing -- being a complete idiot and going extreme is another. There is a huge difference. I criticized Mike White's offense earlier this season too, but I wasn't calling for him to be fired.

Do you see the difference?

re: I'm done with White
stop lumping me in with 2008

I've been calling wanting White to be fired dumb since day one; go read the first page of this thread and keep my name out of your mouth

re: I'm done with White
Sorry sorry. I was mad.

You are critical of Mike White, which is fine, but you have to admit what he has done this year is remarkable considering the circumstances.

With what we have coming in next year and this freshmen corp looking phenomenal, I hope you see that next year is going to be special.

Hell, this year can be special if we get hot.

Guys, this is ridiculous.

Our real enemy and who must be fired is none other than Philip J. Hotdogs.

re: I'm done with White
Another well coached game where White outcoached the other sideline. Done it four straight. Even with the loss Auburn he coached a win just didn't fall our way. Nice to see. Hopefully my being ready to fire him was preemptive. Keeps this kind of coaching up this thread will certainly be crowing eating by me...which I would be happy to do over watching UF struggle. The

Winning this game helps the team believe in themselves even if some fans don't like his style. I can't complain too much with UF playing well the last few games.

No ones perfect but the team doesn't seem to get rattled like the tend to do. I think that's maturity and experience. From the coaches and the players.

UFs problems this year have never been due to coaching, Mike White is a good coach and has put the players in position to make plays. Unfortunately too many open shots have been missed and too many balls bounced off players feet or bad passes thrown.

If the Gators, what have you done for me lately fans, will just be patient the program has a bright future under coach White. Go Gators.

OP speaking in this thread as if he has any clue about basketball all of a sudden.

Its fair to criticize aspects of his coaching.

It is NOT fair to call for the guy's head if you don't watch this team every game and understand just how difficult it is for White to get this team to where it is.

White is doing a TREMENDOUS job.

re: I'm done with White
Whites working magic if you ask me. Upset Michigan and everyone will be talking him up. In my opinion keeping it close and competitive will suffice.

Next year we will have better players coming in and once they’re coached up the skies the limit. I don’t expect a drastic upgrade to start the season but by the end it should be a much better team.
