Mike White is coach 4 life you stupids.

That is actually a well-reasoned take from Neil. I feel like this team needs SOMETHING to get better. The offensive collapses are not just "as of late". They are real. If you do the same shit over and over again, you're defining insanity and driving your fucking fan base crazy.

The hiring of an "OC" is an interesting thought. Maybe someone who will convince White that you don't just stop playing basketball to protect an 11-point lead. It rarely works in any sport. And it's been the shitty formula for this team for a few seasons now.

White is a good dude. And yes, I'm sure his players like him as a person. What he went through with Key, that's brutal. But, there def seem like there are times when his players check out.

Here's another link where Pawwwwwwl also says he's safe, but also recognizing that the natives are once again more than restless.

Here's The Sun's David Whitley on White's safety and situation in Gainesville.
https://www.gatorsports.com/story/baske ... 795918001/
But given how the season ended, it's fair to ask if Florida is reaching the point of diminishing returns with its basketball program. If you witnessed the final 10 minutes of Sunday night's 81-78 loss to Oral Roberts, you'd have to say yes.
Instead of all that being forgotten, it all gained new life. You don't fire a guy based on one game, but the flaws we saw Sunday were nothing new.
On turnovers:
They had 20. Two or three fewer and Florida might still be playing. But that's just not how this team rolled.
"To me it was a mentality that this team, unfortunately, never fully embraced the importance, unfortunately, of each possession," White said.
And who's fault was that?
The players, for sure. But getting players to fully embrace things is why White makes about $3 million a year.
Probably the most realistic outcome for White is right here:
White's won 62% of his games at Florida. He's a solid coach and citizen, but has he reached his ceiling in Gainesville? Is Florida destined to be a mid-seeded NCAA tournament team?
Is that good enough?
This season, it should be. Next season, it might not be.
Especially if next season ends like this one just did.

Hamilton has done well there. I love being on Twitter with stuff like Mike White, Grantham. And even less important issues, like the Constitution and racism. It's like watching two high school debate teams where one or both teams have done no research, but are all willing to go really hard in the paint.

#15 in ESPN's pre-draft ranking. Don't blame him. AT ALL.

From the Orlando Sentinel
A look at the current state of some of the game’s bluebloods does offer White’s program some defense.

Kansas, Louisville and Arizona are under NCAA investigation, while White’s program by all accounts is squeaky clean. Kentucky — and Duke — missed the 2021 NCAA Tournament, making the Gators the only SEC team to qualify for the last four editions of the Big Dance.

Florida also is the only SEC team with a winning conference record the six seasons under White, who is 20 games above .500 in league play (63-43, 125-73 overall).

Yep. No players drafted since 2013. That seems crazy. And yet, unsurprising.
