    Hey everyone, with the season now finished I now have no more games to prepare for so I thought I'd throw something out....

    ...every once in a while, someone in a thread will have an idea they will toss to me for an article and they are often awesome ideas. With no more games to prepare for I have the time to do some nice deep dives into some of the subtleties of Florida's season. I just thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone had any questions for what they might like to see me take a deep dive into. If there's anything you thought about this season that you think could merit a study from me, whether analytics-based or otherwise, Let me know here or give me a personal message and I'd love to take a look into it!

    What would have happened if Stone didn't blow out his knee?

    How many double-digit leads have we blown under Mike White vs. how many times have we come back from double-digit deficits.

    People might not like that one because it could end up with negative results, but I’d love to know. When we lose and I say “we always blow huge leads” it’s hard to tell if I’m conforming the truth to my viewpoint or if there is actual data to back it up.

    Scoring droughts. How did we compare with the national average?

    I know a lot of people look to some of his poor play earlier this year as a reason why his injury didn't matter a ton but I think he would have been a very valuable contributor. I'll take a look to see if there's any data that points to how things changed when he went out.

    Eric- I call dibs on a Hayes column. ;)
    I’m gonna try to reach out to he and coach. I think there is a special bond there and a great story!

    An article on what type of tempo to expect for the team next season would be good to read. Hoping to never see this slow of a pace ever again.

    That would be great!!
    I had once extended an invite to take Billy shark fishing. He was a big shark enthusiast.
    It never happened.

    How does White’s record getting to and winning in the NCAAs in his first four years compare to legendary coaches

    I never heard back from anyone today about Stokes.
    Why didn't he play when we desperately needed more big help?

    Just can’t defend, against a high level offense like Michigan’s I do not think mike white would be comfortable with him on the floor. I certainly wouldn’t.

    Oh my goodness! That would be incredible! Hopefully you can one day go with coach white.

    Michigan is #238 in scoring offense . . . much lower than several of the teams Stokes played against this year. They are 129th in assists/game. 139th in shooting %. Hard to argue they are a high-level offense. Stokes is typically a bad fit against fast-paced teams (see Auburn), but MI does not fit that description either.
    I would liked to have seen him get a shot today. Not sure why coach White didn't see the same.

    UM is a really good pick n' roll team. That's what Stokes really struggles to defend. I'm thinking that's why. But idk.
