I very much share your opinion.
I don't know much other than rumors that are out there, but definitely agree that there is something going on beyond a fit issue. Gates finally landed on a step up the ladder and within a month he is going back down to a school like Nebraska.
Can somebody just say why Gates is gone? Was it something like a recruiting violation, unethical behavior, legal problems, etc?
I'm pretty sure the whole point of this is that no one knows why.
Gone to Nebraska. Not a good fit with Coach White style and coaching staff
Any idea how the conflict was manifested? What is White’s style? And wouldn’t any issue with style be ferreted out in the interview process?
MW relied on feedback from Jordan in hire, and did not know Gates personally. Not a mesh with staff.
Well, I guess it's better to fix the problem now rather than later.
Onward and upward.
Well, I guess I'm able to post on this thread again. Now that it's official, I agree with the OP that the longer the program remains silent, the worse it looks for us IMO. I didn't want to admit that the rumor was true.
Great re-entry. No hard feelings!
Just an aside, I will rarely make declarative statements on here, and if I do... it’s for reason.
As mentioned, I spent a couple days teasing and refuting @gatorbill before learning otherwise.
I also do not post things to “be first”, nor anything that I think would harm the program. This news was out before I made my comments here. Yes, I was perhaps more definitive in my comments than others, but I was confident in what I wrote.
Also, I don’t know nearly as much as some want to credit me as knowing. I presume there are way better insiders on these boards. I think my forecasting and lobbying for Mike White to be hired gave me undeserved street cred! Lol!
Finally, I want to make clear that what I post IS NOT A REPRESENTATION OR AN OFFICIAL POSITION/STATEMENT OF GATORCOUNTRY.
With that said... Go Gators!
(And as an olive branch to Cincy... WHO DEY!)
Cincy, it would be helpful to you if you started checking your PMs.
Bit long winded to say you don't know jack sh*t.
Hahaha! Pretty much!
I’m gonna hire you as my PR guy. You have a way with words.
The last time I responded to your PM you banned me for a week.
Well, now that this is over....
By fanbase I think you mean this message board. If only Gator Nation cared about assistant coaching hires in basketball. We're probably talking pg. 3 or 4 of G-ville Sun sports section.
I highly doubt it was simply because you responded but I have no intention of arguing the point on the open board.
Had you read your PMs you would have seen you could have responded to the boards again yesterday evening.
I know @g8orbill and know he has some good sources. My guess, and it is just a guess, is that he used the "internet radio show" as a way to hide his source on the subject. It does appear he was spot on with his info.
